“This place provides more entertainment than you would expect.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

This place has it all, literally! In addition to the number gas pump and food selections, there are many entertainment venues including theaters and museums. There is also a shopping area that would be a trucker's dream come true! From lights and sound systems to the right decals, this place has everything you would need to make your office on the road as comfortable as possible. And don't forget to pick up a lovely tee shirt with a pug or wolf face on it and enjoy a game in the arcade!

“This Place is Large”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Wall Drug of Iowa, only bigger. Fuel, fast food, huge gift shop, truckers chrome store, great place to stop if you are about to, or have just, battled I-80 across ILL or IA. Just west of the QCA, easy off, easy on.

“Many Things to do! (Including Food)”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

So a truck stop is not my usual review, however, this is not just a truck stop. You can get gas, eat, shower and sit in a real 18 wheeler. The kids will love the various things that they can see. The restaurant is quite good as the service is quick and friendly while the food is very healthy in size. Overall this is a must stop on I-80.

Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to stop fuel and food. They have a restraunt and a food court like a mall would have. Not to mention a gift shop, convenience store, and parts store all rolled into one.
