I had heard the "truckstop" next door to our hotel was recommended. And... we also asked at our last hotel (in Saint John, New Brunswick) where to eat in Bangor and they recommended Dysarts Restaurant. We were very pleased when we arrived in Bangor to find that the 2 recommended places were one and the same!
We tried Dysarts for breakfast (after memorizing the lengthy menu left in our Best Western Hotel) rooms. It's just across the parking lot from the Best Western too... so we could walk over.
The place is huge... shopping and showers for truckers, lots of locals eating here, and lots of tourists from the highway too. We tried not to eat too much so that one of us could manage pie for breakfast too (which we all shared).
Breakfasts are huge... I ordered eggs and hash; others had omlettes and/or pancakes. The toast was thick, hearty and with homemade bread. All was satisfying, promptly delivered and with a smile. The pie was very good, with real whipped cream on top. Nothing we had was really "out of this world," but a really fun experience. I've never eaten in a big trucker sort of spot before. Thanks Dysarts! I'd recommend you for certain. Everything was clean, predictable, and just what we needed before hopping on our plane for Pennsylvania.
