    A disaster every time I go through. Very crappy lot with plenty of fender benders I'm sure. Next door is some sheity lookin bar. And next to that is an "adult shop." Oh boy. Across is some bbq place with a dirt lot that everybody gets stuck in when it rains.

    And it is always full and tons of trucks waiting to get in and out. I got there today at 5pm, before dark, and trucks were lined up back to the freeway waiting to get in while trucks tried to get out who could not find parking. But there was only a tiny little space to get through because of all the trucks lined up to fuel.

    There is a truck stop in Ashdown about 15 miles from there on hwy 71 that I went to. This is the one time that I actually have to deliver in Texarkana so I had to find someplace.

    I'm not surprised, sometimes the hole in the wall places are the best. Maybe that's why there never is any parking around there.

    I have been in there many times. I have always found parking in the very back. It is a long haul in to the store tho. Along the sides there is usually parking, but the way the idiots park along the side makes it hard to back in tho.. The last time I was there I was pretty aggravated. I got a shower, went to bed then got up to run. They had no coffee ready at all. I went in there a couple times before I left and still no coffee. I asked the cashier and they said they was short handed...:biggrin_25513:

    I actually stayed away from the J it was such a madhouse that evening when I got there. the next morning I walked over got a cup of coffee and a soda. I took two sips of the coffee as I was walking out and threw it away it tasted like soap.......I to this day don't like getting coffee at the hooks.....probably the only good thing that pilot could do to them is get better coffee in there:yes2557:

    I wait and just truck on through to the TA down the road. I forget where it's at but it's a little way's. May not get anything close but most of the time you can find a few parking spots.
