Tamarack Rest Stop – West Virginia

I’ve Been Everywhere Man
Being on the road yet again traveling to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, we stopped at the Tamarack Rest Area in West (By God) Virginia. Tamarack is 315 miles from Youngstown, a little more than halfway of our 575 mile journey.
Tamarack is an advantageous rest stop. It keeps you on the Turnpike, has plenty of fueling stations, clean restrooms, and of course places to eat.
I selected Sbarro Pizza. The order was one slice of plain pizza, one meatball, and a small diet coke. (They don’t carry Coke zero which really sucks.)
The pizza wasn’t hot, just lukewarm and tasted OK for cardboard style pizza. (Cardboard Style pizza is very thin crust pizza that is ready made.) It was edible, and filled me up. The meatball was hot, and surprisingly had a good taste to it. The sauce was hot and mildly zesty. The diet coke quenched my thirst.
The cost was $6.75 which given the choices while traveling on the Turnpike, was reasonable.
The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 3 out of 5 shots and recommends Tamarack Rest Area, West Virginia, for lunch and dinner.
