    Russells Truck and Travel Center & Car Museum

    Texas, NM I-40, exit 369

    They haven't been open long. We stopped in there yesterday. Very large, clean showers, a fantastic restaurant, an amazing museum.

    This is now officially my new favorite stop!! :yes2557::yes2557::yes2557:

    I wonder if they're asscoiated with the TS on I25 just south of Raton? Exit 425 maybe? Anyway, it's the same name, and they have a few cars inside on display....hmmmm.....

    Looks like a good one. It seems like I saw an advertisement driving across I-40 once but haven't stopped there yet.

    Yeah, I think it has the same owner. The guy in the museum said the owner has another TS, somewhere, I can't remember where he said it was.

    This is a really nice place....they even have two dog runs outside, one of which is fenced in, so you can let your pets off the leash and run. It's all loose dirt, and there is a big can, and shovel, to clean up after your pet.

    In my eyes, the only other thing I would put in this TS, is at least one shower room that also has a tub....ya know, us ladies DO like a good soak, every now and again!! :yes2557::yes2557::yes2557:

    No it doesn't, but that does seem to be the pattern though.

    Russells has been open for at least 9 years that I know. This place has always been clean and the food in the restaurant is excellent.

    The gentleman who owns it is a car collector and switches out the cars every few months.

    This Russells is brand-spankin'-new. The other one has been around for awhile, though.

    They even post their menu on their website, so if you won't have time to sit-down, you can call ahead, order take-out, and it will be ready for ya when you get there.

    I don't believe that this place will get as trashed as many truck stops do. They all seem to be on the ball, as far as keeping everything clean and neat.
