    I stopped eating buffets at truck stops many years ago for that same reason. We do go to the Golden Corral in Texarkana every now and then but I won't get anything that can be picked up with fingers, like fried chicken. Mostly go there when family is in town as the big dinners are just too hard cooking for us older folks anymore.

    I have a knife, a fork, and a spoon, one hard plastic plate, a very large bowl, one plastic cutting board. It’s easy to clean up after use. I use resealable plastic containers for the food, which stay in the fridge after I use them so that they don’t get funky before I go home. I use disposable aluminum pie pans and aluminum foil to heat stuff up.

    It’s seriously easy.

    Whenever I cook(which has been the norm lately due to corona) I always make use of the sinks inside the bathrooms at truck stops and rest areas.

    I'm not ashamed or afraid to say that either.

    Have you seen average 300 pound truck driver?
    It's not some skinny hipster drinking smoothie!

    So you're saying it has nothing to do with disease transfer like all the managers were saying.

    Never could understand the draw of Golden Corral, the quality of food there was awful, just awful. The fact that one can eat as much of it as they want didn't change the fact it was truly awful quality.

    I stick with paper plates, paper bowls and one set of real silverware. No problem, no mess.

    I just miss salad bars. Haven’t figured out how to keep fresh veggies for more than a couple days. But yeah a grill is the way to go.

    I could believe about disease but that means that every 3rd trucker have it.. no that's hard to believe
    Some might do , but most majority just eating way more then they should

    I wish there were more places that just served a meat and two or three veggies for a decent price, kind of like Morrison's used to be.
