Pilot Flying J is launching a new casual dining concept at select travel centers and travel plazas nationwide, the first of which opened in March at the new Pilot Travel Center in St. Marys, Ga.

In addition to Pilot Flying J’s premium coffee and cappuccino selections, the new dining concept offers a variety-filled menu featuring hot soups, home-style platters, fresh-made salads and cold sandwiches, a frozen yogurt bar, pizza, hot dogs and much more.

Pilot Flying J is adding to its food offerings in order to meet the unique and growing needs of professional drivers, RVers, over-the-road travelers and local motorists. The new dining concept offers a variety of snacks and meals including signature items such as:

    to be honest, I liked the old flying J/pilot full menu selection. when I planned my trips in the past,they always included where the flying J/pilot truckstops were,so I could count a good meal and a hot shower to complete my day.
