It is a big truck stop! There is plenty of room to fuel up and park. The food court has lots of variety. There is more shopping than you'll want to do. There are also a number of fun things for the children and photo ops galore

The I-80 is my favorite truck stop. The staff are friendly and helpful and the facility is sparkling clean. There are multiple eating choices, something for everyone. I can't leave without another piece of chrome!
