Default Iowa80 Chrome Shop Don't Miss It

If you are passing on I-80, lots of room to park. There is even a separate RV parking area. I didn't buy anything, but my wife did. Go figure.

Too bad the museum was closed Mon and Tues off season.

Close to HWH.

Been there a few times, even had a steak in the dining room, against better judgement but it was pretty good.

Kelly's a BIG fan of the Peach Cobbler! (with cinnamon vanilla ice cream, of course)

Iowa 80 is billed as the World's Largest Truck Stop.
Most people put that in the same category as "World's Largest Ball of String."
They have a lot of stuff, just not the stuff I'd buy.
A better bet if you're shopping is one of the Heavy Duty Truck shows. There you can chat with the manufacturers and get their propaganda. Once you know exactly what you want you can buy it on line.
I didn't find their fuel prices any better than my usual stops.
I do try to stop there if I am passing by, if only to stretch the legs and get a soda.

Exclamation i-80 truckstop

On I-80 eastbound the World’s Biggest Truck Stop doesnt announce itself with lots of billboards or exit instructions. If you happen to notice their sign on northside frontage road, take the exit! or start looking for the next u-turn route, uuugggh, it is miles down the road. I think it was Finn who said a few years back that they stock all the chrome lug nut covers and top hats for bird wheels, is that right?

I bought lug nut covers that matched perfectly for my 94 BMC. They have about a zillion different ones.

Yes they do and then some. Ensure you know what you need size wise when you go in. They won't.
