Well, except for the gas prices.
Wally's truck stop opened in Pontiac, Illinois in September 2020. But they have an unmistakable '80s aesthetic, from the omnipresent retro striping to a real-life vintage Winnebago, which reminds me of our former RV. We stopped en route from Arizona to New York, with a Penske truck full of arcade machines going to a brand-new home game room! This is one of two Wally's locations in Illinois. Located at 1 Holiday Road (National Lampoon's Vacation!), the roadside oasis is home to clean restrooms, gourmet coffee and a killer souvenir shop. Wally's wails '80s music 24/7.
We thought Wally's deserved a place of honor on Retro Injection. If you're driving through Illinois, check them out!
