Truckstops and travel plazas often serve as a home away from home for drivers, but Florida 595 Truck Stop in Davie, Florida, kicks it up a notch and offers drivers delicious food, a place to unwind and an opportunity to relax under the palm trees in the Florida sun.
Visiting the location makes you want to grab a cold drink and something to eat and relax.
The restaurant has a sports bar feeling and there is a driver lounge with a bar where drivers can play games of chance. Plus, there are barbeque grills in the back.
Professional drivers, travelers and locals alike seem to love the food. Customers are consistently uploading photos of their meals to Google, which is always a good sign. There are traditional offerings as well as dishes that offer a Cuban flair.
The location also offers a service center, truck wash and DOT physicals. There is secure, asphalt-paved storage for companies that want to park buses, RV’s, tractor trailers, trailers or containers. It has 24/7 access through a gated security entrance and video monitoring.
Florida 595 Truck Stop offers the perfect mix of business and relaxation for drivers, and they’re happy to share their opinions. On Google, one driver wrote, “Hidden paradise for truckers!!!!”
