HERMON – An iconic truck stop that has been serving hot food 24/7 for decades, will soon close its kitchen daily at midnight.
Dysart’s Restaurant on the Cold Brook Road is changing its hours on Oct. 1.
After that, the eatery will be open 5 a.m. to midnight.
A lot of customers have been shocked by the news, but understand it is a business decision, said John Mason, who manages the Dysart’s restaurants in Hermon and Bangor.
“But most people are bumming, like ‘Where am I going to get my Dave’s hash and egg at 1 a.m.,’” Mason said. “Well, it will still be available between 5 and 12.”
The truck stop and store will still remain open 24 hours a day, so truckers and others can still fuel up and grab a slice of pizza, sandwich or snack anytime of the day or night.
Dysart’s truck stop has been a family run business since it opened on Mother’s Day in 1967.
