    Some are still active but the buffets are gone,the menu is significantly shorter and most of them aren’t open 24 hours anymore like they were previously (some call it a day at 9:00 pm).
    And their numbers are fading fast!

    All the Flying J restaurants were converted into Dennys which is a joke. Mostly all the TA Country Pride and Petro Iron Skillets were closed during Covid and after the pandemic restrictions were lifted a lot of them remained closed. Some were then changed to IHOP which leaves most still closed today.

    At least the one in NM still has the liquor store.
    Bought the only #### good thing to do sitting on a load there.

    A lot of TA's and Petro's are converting their restaurants to Black Bear Diners.
