We walked to Dysart's from our hotel. It is open 24/7 and we went after dark. It meant crossing the restaurant parking lot full of parked and parking big-riggers. It was one of the biggest thrills this Christmas! Inside we sat where we could watch, like a "Trucker Ballet", as they pulled in and out and up to the pumps. Oh yeah, the food! The place is warm but rudimentary - staff friendly and professional - the clientele soooo interesting! There is no alcohol served by law but - the food is great! We had a plate of the best clams in Maine - and we have tried a lot of them. We were a little skeptical of the freshness in December at a truck stop but they melted in the mouth, succulent, just a dusting of batter. If you like clams, hand cut fires, excellent cole slaw and all the usual suspects for rib sticking satisfying fare - Dysart's is super. On the way out people rushed past us to the bakery counter grabbing this and that - they had driven there to "do their baking" for Christmas! We picked up a few things too and they did not disappoint!
