Self-billed as the "World's Largest," the 29,135 ft² (2,707 m²) McDonald's that spans the Will Rogers Turnpike of I-44 near Vinita, Oklahoma is a notable example of a U.S. roadside restaurant.
This particular McDonald's was originally built when the turnpike opened in 1957 as one of the "Glass House" restaurants, owned by the now-defunct Interstate Hosts company. The "Glass House" also operated as a Howard Johnson's restaurant at one point. Because of this heritage, it is also known as the Glass House McDonald's and the McDonald's Glass House Restaurant. It shares the space with a Phillips 66 gas station.
