They offer free Verizon cell service and free wifi; one of the few places out there you can get any kind of signal. I don't want to imply they do this all the time but they did fill our small cooler with ice when we bought beer! Great place! Definite stop!

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review! The Pit Stop is definitely a cool place to stop by and hang out! The Wi-Fi and Cell Hot Spot make it very popular with our travelers….they have everything you need to refresh and refuel before hitting the road again! We are so glad you stopped by and enjoyed your time here! We hope to see you back again soon!

Way too much good food for just a little money. Couldn't eat it all. Easy to get to plenty of parking.

The Pitstop Restaurant and gas station is a great place to re-fuel both the car and yourself.
They have quick menu items to get you charged up and back on your way. They also have nice quality t-shirts that show your love of the twisty roads in the area. They have bottled sodas and pre-packaged ice creams to grab for the drive through the mountains or stroll through Fontana Village.

Great little place with gas station/snacks. Great alternative if you staying at the resort to grab some lunch or a snack. It has a pool table and mimics an old time gas station.
