Motorists traveling along Interstate-15 north of Primm have a newer feature to enjoy that is tough to miss.
A gas station billing itself as the world’s largest Chevron is in Jean, just off Exit 12 on the west side. The station has a staggering 96 gas pumps making it one of the largest in the western U.S.
In addition to the seemingly endless number of gas pump bays, the store adjacent, the Terrible Herbst Convenience Store also known as Terrible’s Road House, is equally massive.
With an astonishing 50,000 square feet, it is one of the world’s largest convenience stores.
With so many available gas pumps, the Road House delivers largeness on other fronts as well.
It has sixty restroom stalls, a wide range of convenience store foods and beverages with a huge soda fountain bank section, a large candy section, souvenirs, travel items, and one of the largest beer caves in the state.
Beyond the more typical convenience and travel store fare with massive selection, the Road House also has an Auto Zone store and a White Castle fast-food restaurant with dine-in and drive-thru options.
In addition to the White Castle, you can also purchase sandwiches, premium jerky, doughnuts, candied nuts, frozen treats, and more.
The Road House is an attraction all to itself. It has interesting displays such as movie cars, a motor racing theme and displays, an airplane, and incredible size with a huge assortment of merchandise allowing travelers to get everything they need.
This includes a sports merchandise section with plenty of gear from the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Raiders.
The Road House even has a recreation of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign.
That way, you can take pictures in the air-conditioned comfort of the store without braving the traffic, crowds, and summer heat of the actual sign on Las Vegas Boulevard.
In Jean, there are two gas stations. On the east side of I-15 across from the former hotel-casino, there is a Terrible’s Hearst Truck Plaza that is focused on gas and services for truckers.
But most travelers are better served going to the Road House on the other side of the freeway underpass.
If you'd prefer to get gas in Primm, there are also two smaller gas stations in the community. There's also a Tesla supercharger station and a Brightline electric vehicle charging station by the Flying J.
The community of Goodsprings is only seven miles west of Jean on Highway 161. It's a neat little place to visit. However, there are no gas stations in the community.
Goodsprings does have a couple of food options including the historic Pioneer Saloon.
Terrible’s Road House and the world’s largest Chevron station is a destination for travelers and a must-stop in the Primm area!
