What do you look for in a truck stop?

Slidell, La.
Werner Enterprises
“I mostly use Flying J and TA. Flying J gives you two showers for every 100 gallons and TA has double-point month. When it’s double-point month, I don’t miss a TA.”

Pete Rohde
Essexville, Mich.
J.B. Hunt
“Convenience and location. It has to be easy to get in and out of. And I eat in my truck, so I don’t really pay attention to the restaurants.”

David Gurule
Winder, Ga.
CX Roberson
“I like the Petros for the movie theaters and the Flying Js because of the driver’s lounge.”

Clint Larock
