My husband and I are truck drivers and prefer mom & pop restaurants from time to time to tickle our taste buds every now and then. While passing we stopped in for dinner. The Magnolias menu was a bit scarce which made it difficult to order. Their fried chicken was only boned other than the tenders, they didn't offer mac-n-cheese,... More

Like a lot of truck stops, the parking lot stays full because the food is good and the staff is friendly! This place has a great daily lunch special menu that covers just about anything you may want. I'll be back!

My husband and I go to the truck stop to eat on a regular basis, usually for lunch but sometimes for breakfast or dinner. Their plate lunch is usually really good (I recommend getting there before noon) and offers a daily choice of a meat and 2 or 3 vegetables. We usually go on Tuesday, when liver with onions and...

Good food at a good price. I have been by here several times and there was always a lot of cars here so I decided to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. I had the chicken livers and they were excellent. I will eat here again.
