Traveling across Ohio on I-80 - East To West - Restaurtant Q

Hi we are going to drive from NJ to IL and will be traveling on I-80 . In PA, I-80 has no eating or gas facilities, but there are convenient places- drive off drive back on- to eat ( MC D's etc) on many of the exits. Can you tell me how it is on I-80 across Ohio ( and Indiana if you are familiar with that)?

Thanks

The Ohio Turnpike has very nice service plazas and you really have no reason to ever get off the turnpike if you don't want to. Gas prices may be a little higher than if you got off at an exit but the hassle of getting off the turnpike and then get back on probably makes paying the turnpike's gas prices worth it.

Here is a link to all of the Ohio service plazas and what they offer...

That's a great link. At a quick glance it appears to be upscale eateries (no Wendy's , MCd or BK's) but good food and convenient.How much is gas going for in Ohio?

Thanks so much .

Price varies greatly across Ohio, and even from town to town... I filled the other day for $3.4999/gallon.

Regarding your earlier question, are there any specific types of food you like? There are some good Italian places in the Youngstown, OH area

If you like wings, you will be just south of the original Quaker Steak and Lube in Sharron, PA.

Both those areas are on I-80, east of where it becomes the Turnpike, so you may enter and exit the highway without worrying about tolls...

The turnpike link has all the info for reststops once I-80 becomes the turnpike... Have a great trip!

Thanks so much. The Ohio LInk is very informative ( provided Restaurant info and gas prices in different exit areas.

Do you happen to know if WI-FI is available at the Service Areas on the OH or IN Rte 80 Stops - If not, are there Mc Donalds and/or Starbucks close to the Exits on The Turnpike ?

Thanks
