Not worth stopping at except for fuel and maybe the bathroom with the ancient hand dryer that just about blows air at all. We stayed here for one night on our way back to Myrtle Beach to close on our new place. The out door...More

We stopped for gas and a bite to eat - very confusing. So much "stuff" just thrown into one place. Not well organized at all and very dirty. Not impressed.

Wow, this place has sure grown since I was a kid. Still extremely cheesy but had to stop anyway. Used the truck stop restroom. Was clean but old. Only went into one store just to look around and get out of the car for a...More

This place is a mess. The workers are unfriendly, helpful and seem completely apathetic about their jobs. The place smells awful and there were lots of black flies hanging around the trash cans. We were going to eat there but rushed out of there as...More

If you're looking for a 5-star resort and entertainment complex, keep driving. That's not what SOB is about. SOB is a throwback to the 60s, with wholesome family entertainment and tacky gift shops. We are staying at the motel right now and while the grounds...More

I suppose the first time I saw the billboards every half mile for at least 100 miles out, I should have stopped there. That was about 40 years ago, and every time I have driven on I-95 through this area I have always kept driving....More

For those of us downsizing, you need not stop-lots of trinkets, fireworks, etc. We stopped because we went by it tons of times on I-95, and decided to check it out. We were going to stay at the campground, but reviews were terrible. So we...More

This place has been around since 1949. It's no longer in its heyday, but it is a piece of American history. The billboards used to be more creative, but still provide a fun countdown through the hideous stretch of 95 through the carolinas. The children's...More

It is every bit as tacky as it looks from the Interstate, BUT that also sort of added to the experience. It is very dated and campy, but for being what it is, it was a fun stop along the way. I had passed this...More
