We're stepping back in time 50 years to 1964. The I-80 Truckstop is celebrating 50 years in business by offering food at their restaurant for the same price as 50 years ago.

That means a cup of coffee for ten cents, breakfast for 95 cents and a chicken dinner for a dollar 65.

Officials say it's a great way to celebrate the milestone.

"When it all started, I don't think anybody thought it would get this big, but every year we just grow bigger and bigger," kitchen shift supervisor Chris Hahn said. "We just had a remodel. We have a 300 seat restaurant. We're just ready for customers and we're just glad that everybody came out and showed their appreciation for us."

She says the restaurant has been busy all day with lines out the door.

Hahn's grandfather started the restaurant and she is part of the third generation working there now.
