Sure it's a truck stop. But we loved stopping here for breakfast, and you don't have to get the buffet, you can order right off the menu. If you need it, there's washers and dryers, a haircut place, showers, and a USPS mailbox as well...More

On my way south stopped off for breakfast. Food was average, there was a buffet but we ordered off the menu. It was typical breakfast food. Eggs, potatoes, bacon and toast. My only comment, the service was slow.

I've probably had two breakfast visits and several dinner visits. The breakfast buffet is very good, dinner is OK, but not my thing. Always good service and I like listening to the "Non-politically correct" truckers.

Stopped in for breakfast. Didn’t get the buffet decided to get something off the menu today. I had the ham and eggs. They tasted amazing. The service was great and everyone was friendly. Will defiantly be back.

This place is a truckers’ eatery and convenience store that caters to other travellers and families as well. We stopped for breakfast on our way through town and expected slightly faster service. Even though there was no line and we sat right down in a...More

Evidently, Iron Skillet is part of the Petro chain, and I swear that I will always be on the lookout for a Petro station/restaurant location because the food was overwhelming. The buffet is wide and varied - and clean! The menu items were also varied...More
