Definitely a locals hang out. Couldn't find an employee for assistance, ended up going to the cashier, not much help there. Place wasn't spotless, and I felt the need to keep my money hidden. Didn't stay long enough to even use the restroom.

This truck stop has become so filthy. Employees are slow,lazy and obviously don't wanna be there. They added a bar so now we have drunk truck drivers leaving and driving. They now have a pretty good flow of Hooks and dopers who patronize the place. From here on out Alamo gets my buisness.

Go anywhere but here. This place is a dive/greasy spoon. Horrible and smells. The food is not very good.

This place used to have good foods, now the wait staff is terrible, food is lousy. Don't play the casino games you will never win in this place. To dark and smelly. Not really a truck stop anymore, more of a casino that never pays anyone off.

We stepped in and stepped out. This is a typical electronic gambling place. It is a truck stop and has a nice convenience store. Gas station and snacks...Ho Hummmmm.

Truck stop and casino in one. The food is basic and good, nothing really fancy. Very family friendly prices.

No table games, but lots and lots of slots. Reasonably quiet and good service when you need it. Restaurant serves good basic food. Again, nothing special but tasty and worth the prices.

The casino is sooooooo out of date - you have to wait for a hand pay just to change slot machines. Stopped in once cause it was RIGHT THERE off I80 - a waste of time. The floors go up & down depending on where you are - seems rooms were added a long, long time ago. Basically a truck... More
