Flying J in Warrenton, MO Truck Stop Review

Not my favorite Flying J store, though I find myself stopping here frequently due to fuel prices. This place is dirty, stinky, cramped and has a lot of shady people hanging around who want money or a ride.

Wings America Flying J in Avoca, IA Truck Stop Review

Wings America offers exceptionally clean showers, plenty of food options. None of us want to break down on the road, but if I had to choose where a breakdown would happen, Wings America would be one of my top choices in the Plains States.

Pilot Travel Center in Colby, Kansas Truck Stop Review

Convenient location to stop between Denver & Salina with more parking than many Pilot stores. Basic c-store type food with a Subway on the side, but nice showers almost make up for the fact you might decide to stay hungry.

Abbyland in Curtiss, WI. Truck Stop Review

Abbyland received one of TSG’s highest rated reviews so far this year. It’s a really pleasant place to stay and I only wish I could get there more often. They offer a very clean store & facilities. El Norteno’s food is to die for!

Road Ranger Pilot in Springfield, Illinois Review
I’ve been to some really nice, albeit small, Road Ranger locations in the midwest. The one off Interstate 55 in southern Springfield, Illinois may be the smallest I’ve seen and really isn’t my favorite. Let’s start with kudos for fresh pizza in the hot deli. And a clean parking... Read more
