Simple place, as you might expect truck stops to be. Only concern was the host told us to sit anywhere we like without telling us that the nonsmoking section is to the left, not the right. The chicken fried steak sandwich was exceptional. Tender, not greasy, with a great crust. If you want a quick meal that is tasty without... More

There were some people here who appeared to be locals, even though it appeared to be a place to get off the highway & grab a quick bite to eat. The food wasn't the best we have had & also not the worst. My husband got the sirloin, which was expensive enough but really not very good. It was overlooked... More

Service and Food was ok, Very terrible bathroom smell which was off putting on walking in. Non-smoking section not really non smoking. Smoke from the smoking section floated everywhere. Not veteran or military friendly. Really needs some work with cleanliness and maybe better management.

Smoke filled and waitress looked as if she worked in a Garden before she waited on us. Food was fast and good but as soon as we were served the bill hit the table and she went home. After she split not a single whisper from another waitress. No refills no nothing. Definitely not worth the time.

Nestled between modern I-44 and classic route 66, Hoods Restaurant (part of a larger service center) offers old-time roadside food with Wi-Fi and a CB radio repair center available. Tourists, hipsters, truckers and local Mennonites mingle while enjoying downhome cooking in a pleasant atmosphere. Be sure to choose wisely just inside the door--smoking to your right; non-smoking to the left.... More

Wait for service from staff was lengthy, seemed the locals were 1st for service. Serve time was normal for food, which was really good, and pricing was ok.
