While on the road, a few of my friends and I decided to stop at the world's largest truck stop for lunch. It was pretty busy for a Sunday afternoon, and I opted for the shorter Taco Bell line. The menu contained all the usual Taco Bell menu items (7 layer burritos, crunch wrap supremes) and the drink fountain has the signature Mountain Dew Baja Blast, as well as the new Sangrita Blast. I noticed they did not have newer items, notably the Grilled Stuft Nacho. The service was fast and friendly, and I made my way though the line quickly. I ordered a steak quesarito and crunch wrap supreme. The food came quick, and I could see them making my order fresh behind the counter. The first bite of the quesarito was all tortilla, which was disappointing. Once I got into the meat of it, I found a nice balance of cheese, rice, and steak. The different Taco Bell sauces complimented the different flavors in the quesarito well, I personally found the mild to have the nicest taste. The crunch wrap supreme is a classic. With a perfect balance of lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese, and beef, it ranks among one of my favorite fast food items. Though this particular wrap had an uncharacteristically sparse amount of meat, the flavors still melted well together. Towards the end, I was getting mostly cheese, but overall it was a quality crunch wrap experience. All in all, this was a very filling and satisfying meal. It was not a perfect Taco Bell experience, but I suppose I get spoiled with my nearly flawless local Taco Bell restaurant. This location is great for fans of the classic Taco Bell menu who are looking for some Doritos Locos tacos and a Baja Blast while on the road.

Wonderful food, great atmosphere, courteous service, and fun for sale items! Definitely worth the stop!
I see that I forgot to post my October review of Gramma's Kitchen at the Walcott, Iowa exit of I-80. Here 'tis: We have a couple of favorite stops on I-80 when we drive from Des Moines to Illinois, and Gramma's Kitchen has probably received most of our visits. Just across the street from the Iowa 80 Truck Stop (billed as the world's largest truck stop) Gramma's Kitchen is a masterpiece of rural kitsch, featuring toys, gizmos, refrigerator magnets, wooden plaques and other stuff that is supposed to give the tourists the feel of being in a down-home corn-fed environment. And a big contributor to that down-home feeling is the restaurant's food. No kale, no edamame (or green soybeans as they're called here) no arugula, tofu or pomegranate juice. This is the kind of food that my own grandma cooked fifty years ago, and it's cooked very well. Today it was chicken-fried (or country-fried) steak. Absolutely perfect! Fork-tender with soda cracker breading, real mashed potatoes, not whipped, with chunks of potato therein, green beans with bacon and real cream gravy with sausage bits. YUMMM! Service is sometimes slow, but always attentive, and the salad bar is your ordinary iceberg lettuce, etc., salad bar. But the meatloaf, the fried chicken, the chicken-fried steak -- they are beyond compare. I think there is also a bar, but when I go to Gramma's my focus is on food, and the only drinks I want are good water and excellent coffee. So when you're on I-80, stop in a set a spell. You'll be glad you did! (That's a down-home invitation.)
All I can say I OMG. Found a new breakfast spot on our Iowa treks. Beats I-80 Truck Stop restaurant hands down. Why have I never stopped here before?
