    I have just been told that Porky's Truck Stop in South of the Border, Dillon, SC has closed. I know that it wasn't much of a place to want to be but a place to park none the less. Does anyone know if this is true or not? It would be nice to know to keep the list current as to where you can go in a bind.

    How could a place with a name like that not get enough buisnes?


    The end is near!

    I Googled it....found no mentions of a closure, for what it’s worth.

    I also googled it showing no closure but if you go onto Fuel Finder it states closed. Oh well I guess the next time in the area I'll have to check it out for peace of mind. It isn't going to cause a lack of sleep

    South of the Border is one of the weirdest roadside tourist traps I've ever seen.

    I always stop in to grab a case a Blenheim ginger ale.
