     History
    Used to be a truck stop at one point but has long since closed its doors. Most truckers in the Clarington part of Durham Region now swear by The 5th Wheel truck stop just a couple 401 off ramps east anyways. Great burgers there!

    when the 401 was built 2 oil companies had truck stops with direct access, shell and texaco. this one is a shell. the texaco ones were run by scotts and had the restaurant (cafeteria style) in a red and white dome building with a big tower. when esso took over texaco they towers disapeared and the restaurants became wendys and etc. the above truck stop design can be seen at many places between windsor and curry hill road on the quebec border
