    Drove by this location the other day, and notice it was no longer in business. This is probably one of worst truck stops that I ve been to. I remember when it was a Petro, and how run down it was. I wonder will they keep the lot open behind Flying J since they did not own it

    Remember the perkinson restaurant? Once that closed, it all went downhill fast. I enjoyed that restaurant too..

    I'm pretty sure that on was a franchise owned Flying J. Before Petro, I think it was one of the All American truck stops.

    I liked that fly j, used to have a good restaurant in it, not the chain one it switched to couple years ago. Hate to hear this, was also usually peaceful sleeping up top against hills.

    I thought so. And so were the Petro in Carlisle and the Flying J at exit 10 on I 78. Frystown i think.

    That top lot looks like a landfill literally. Trash everywhere and trash cans that haven t been emptied in a few months. I guess the only thing left up top is Blue Beacon

    That’s a shame, I used to load out of Baltimore area a lot, especially on Friday evening, never really upset me because I could always get parking, shower & good meal at this spot. Just had to make sure & not fall down stairs if it was snow packed. Anyone remember name of restaurant before Perkins ?
     
    Upinsmoke and bzinger Thank this.
