Flying J/Eagles Landing

Eagles Landing Travel Plazas have become known as the premier place to stop by savvy motorists as well as seasoned professional drivers on I-15 in central and southern Utah. Now they are spreading their wings even further and expanding with two new locations in Mesquite, Nevada and Desert Springs, Arizona.

With the ground breaking in January of 2018, Eagles Landing became the first new commercial project at the recently completed Exit 118, I-15 interchange in Mesquite. The modern 17-acre facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018. In partnership with Pilot/Flying J, they will provide travelers and locals with high-quality gasoline, diesel, and ethanol-free E-91, as well as plans for electric vehicle charging stations. In the back of the facility, there will be eight diesel lanes with new high-speed pumps and sixty-five truck parking spots. Other highlights include dedicated RV parking and a tire shop serving the needs of both personal and commercial vehicles.

Inside, the beautiful 18,900-square-foot facility will be well-stocked with all the essentials, ice cold drinks, and tasty snacks, as well as hot and fresh choices like soups, salads, chicken, pizza, sandwiches, and more. Another exciting new option will be the massive coffee bar with a wide variety of hot and cold brew choices, including nitro on tap. Also housed within the facility will be a full-size liquor store, authentic Mexican food from Mr. Taco, and a much anticipated Wendy’s.

“This project will bring the city more tax dollars that we need. If we can put another 60 to 80 people to work over time, it will help us immensely. Of course, everyone is as excited about the Wendy’s as they are anything else,” said Mayor Al Litman

In addition to the large clean restrooms that Eagles Landing Travel Plazas are known for, truck drivers and weary travelers will have access to six private restrooms with spa quality showers, free wi-fi, and slot machines, as well as a private trucker’s lounge where professional drivers can relax and unwind after miles on the road.

Besides the addition of great new convenience, fueling, and food options, the economic impact of this facility will be a boon to the residents of Mesquite and the surrounding area.

Jeff Powell, chairman of the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors said, “This is a great opportunity to expand business in Mesquite. This project will bring additional revenues and income streams to the city and other businesses. It brings people off the interstate and into town. It will be a first-class operation and a win-win for everyone.”

Eagles Landing is also building a new site just over the border in Desert Springs, Arizona. Located conveniently just off of the southbound side at Exit 9, this location is currently under construction, with completion planned for early 2019. This seven-acre facility will be an oasis providing multiple car and dedicated RV lanes for fueling to get customers back on their way.

For food, there will be a Subway, and they are also bringing forward a new concept called Yardley’s Steakburgers and Custard. With roots going all the way back to the 1800’s raising cattle in Utah’s Beaver Valley, Yardley’s is a family business using clean, family-raised beef from select cows grass-fed in pastures not in pens. Yardley’s Steakburgers offer handcrafted patties and quality natural ingredients. The owners say it’s a difference you can taste. “It’s not a burger – it’s a Yardley’s.” Other unique offerings on their menu will be hand-mixed real custard shakes and sweet potato fries.

Eagles Landing is excited to bring the unsurpassed quality and customer service the residents and travelers in Utah have come to depend on to the areas of northern Arizona and northeastern Nevada.
