    Several years back on this forum, Sweet Pea's truck stop in Wheatley, Arkansas
    was ranked as one of the dirtiest and filthiest truck stops out there. Fear not, past
    and present drivers. It has closed as of a few months ago. Used to be good in its time,
    I hear, but unfortunately due to bad management, it got worn out and tired.

    Gosh, the Google reviews attest to its charm and character:

    "So bad. So so bad. Just a total dump and not even in a fun way! The showers don’t have hot water and every toothless meth head around is there playing slots and smoking Broncos (inside). Could see people walking by outside shower room through busted vent as well.....worth it for cheap diesel I guess."

    I recall stopping there once a while ago for a 30 minute break. The place was run down. The only positive thing I had to say was that they had Brims and Golden Flake chips.

    I remember when it was a premier spot, it got bought out years ago and the new owners (foreigners) ran it to the ground.

    Pretty sure I stopped here in the middle of the night sometime within the last year...If this is the place I'm thinking of they had a little cafe inside...I was hoping to get some food as I was starving...Well I went inside and the cafe was closed and I was bummed looking around for something to eat...The Indian clerk asked me what I was looking for and I told him some food...He replied back " we don't have food...we have junk...hahaha that's what we got...junk"...I ended up going out in my truck and finding some chips and beef jerky...I came down with a cold the next day.

    The last and only time I stopped there was probably five years ago. Crappy lot, replete with numerous vermin scurrying around near the entrance of the building. The furry four-legged kind of vermin. That was enough.
