    I'm the first to be screaming for sit down restaurants rather than fast food in all truck stops but it will not happen. First there are not enough drivers wanting the sit down restaurants and would rather eat in their trucks and second the truck stops make more money leasing out the space to fast food companies without the overhead costs. I can not see the advantage of eating in your truck as compared to sitting down in a restaurant. Some say it is cheaper but you had to buy an APU, refrigerator, microwave, eating utensils, etc. You had to go to the store to shop and buy the food. You got a little exercise walking from the truck to the building. You need to get out of the truck and unwind, stretch those legs, clean up yourself and socialize with fellow drivers. Boy do I miss the 60's and 70's.

    It’s nice to sit down for breakfast nothing like a nice cooked omelette in the morning

    If they do not have a lunch counter. Then how can you sit down and swap lies with your fella drivers. No lie swapping makes it not a full service truckstop.

    I am with navypop, I would have quit driving before I got stated good if I couldn't afford to sit down and have a meal. Now I live where there are no truckstops, but can park almost anywhere and there are eateries, with waitresses and real food.
