    The water here has more color than my dehydrated urine.

    Whomever said these are better than the NJ ones must be a homer... I thought I was in a factory restroom when I came in here. :(

    The bathroom had an adequate amount of urinal cakes for my needs. Very pleased. Coffee was a tad expensive. I better get a buzz worth $2.50.

    Indiana should be embarrassed by the condition of their rest areas. So gross. Only stopped because I had to.

    MegaBus to Chicago often stops here; the service at the McDonalds isn't too bad. Meh restrooms.

    Once you cross over the Ohio border into Indiana, survice/rest stops lack quality. But customer service in gift shop was great, & they were cheaper than Ohio's gift shops! All 50 state magnets, too!

    James, are you kidding me? This was the worst stop Ive seen in over 800 miles of traveling, & Ive lived in Jersey for a few years. Much better than this shithole.

    Hey Dan S I am sure you're no prize either... Welcome to Indiana you lame ass loser.

    As you stop at this rest area, named after a noted Indiana novelist and Pulitzer prize winner, contemplate why your parents didn't name you anything nearly as cool as "Booth Tarkington".

    The bathrooms are totally gross an gas is mega expensive, if you can hold out to the next gas station/rest stop!

    They have a decent selection of food and cheap prices for the turnpike

    Very dirty, and the gas prices are inflated. Don't stop here unless you have to.

    On the bright side, it's nicer than ANY plaza in Jersey. That's not saying much

    Don't buy gas from here. Too expensive. You save thirty cents at gallon.

    Skip it, slow and terrible service, people who order something simple get it 30 minutes later.
