This place offers very clean restrooms, lots of food choices, travel gifts and drinks. The diner inside is good as well as the Subway Sandwich spot. Ohhh and the car museum rotates often so there are always different cars inside to look at.

My favorite travel center when traveling cross country. A small dog run and a great car museum filled with all kinds of memorabilia! It's in the middle of nowhere and a wonderful stop to stretch you legs and get a refreshment. The museum is free...More

By most Truck Stop standards this is indeed a very fancy place. The decode is classic Route 66, and there is even a small auto & motorcycle museum. The food, however, was strictly average, which is pretty much what we expect at a truck stop.

It's way better than stopping in Amarillo or Albuquerque. Good everything. Friendly people, good chapel, and what a car museum.
