  1. Why am I not surprised of the violations at the Love’s Truck Stop…This place has been a dirty joke since Love’s bought it.

  2. Only washing utensils once a week?? That’s disgusting ..So glad I don’t go to Mokas!

  3. So glad this stuff gets posted now. Hopefully it will lead to some accountability.
