Default chili dogs at Iowa 80? tell my instructor

I am taking a logistics class at a Charlotte area community college. It is mostly young people, i guess, who want to get into trucking,warehousing and so on administrative clerical line of work. On my online course I read this:
Think all logistics careers are routine? Imagine being the general manager of a truck stop. Click on the picture below to visit Iowa-80, supposedly the world's largest truck stop! I bet they have great chili dogs...
I have been thru there a couple of times but I bet if they have any chili dogs at the restaurant they probably suck with the ratty beans and so on. Can anybody give us an idea? that way I can get from the horses mouth or shoudl i say , the truckers mouth, and what good connections I have with my trucker buddies. :wink:

I haven't been to Iowa 80 truckstop but what a bizzare question?

Why don't you say you have good trucker connections and answer something a little more technical then the ingredients of a chili dog.

Like Trip Planning,
Things to consider prior to accepting a load.
How to get good fuel miles.
What makes roads/passes difficult. incline, congestion, weather,number of lanes,

Driving solo or teams. pros and cons.

Drivers and sufficent sleep. The effects of driving not under the influence but sleep deprived.

Impress them with tougher subjects.


Just a thought.

Well, I am a driver myself, but this is an online course and of course nobody of my online classmates knows who i am or what i do etc, since i cant give any input about the chili dogs at iowa 80 i thought maybe somebody could say for a fact : yes, they have some , they are good or they suck, or no they dont have any, or whatever, they got hot dogs at the convenience store or fuel desk or whatever, i just wantd to know anything at all about the chili dogs if they exist. i guess not

My advice is that if you are looking for chili-dogs on I80 or anywhere else, just get on the CB and ask other divers about where you can get the best gas!!
