    I love truck stops for some strange reason. What's the biggest one within an hour or so of Vegas? I'd like to make a little road trip on my next visit!

    No need to go to a truck stop to find a lot lizard, there are plenty of those running around Bolder Highway, LOL.

    Just giving a hard time.

    Man I'm drawing a blank on this question. I know there is one (can't really say if it's big or nice) on Blue Diamond north side near Silverton entrance. I would just start driving on 15 and I'm sure you will come across them.

    Sorry. That's sort of odd that Yelp would still be reviewing it. Good luck!

    I like the Moapa Travel Plaza.
    It's not really much of a truck stop but the food is ok and they sell fireworks ( the legit kind) and they have an area where you can set them off.

    This is the only truck stop in the Vegas area with an unrestricted casino license, allowing them to offer blackjack and other non machine gambling.

    In Sparks near Reno, the TA also has an unrestricted casino license, and also a hotel to go with overnight trucking services.
