P&H Truck Stop
Wells River, VT 05081
BEST HIGHWAY DINER
Trucks and cars practically steer themselves off I-91 toward this eatery, where American and Canadian drivers (the menu is in English and French) plow into homemade chowders, Yankee pot roast, thick slabs of bread baked on site, and big-rig-size pieces of maple cream pie.
Amble past the dozens of 18-wheelers dieseling outside and you’ve entered trucker’s Mecca, where hearty, real homecookin’ is religion. The 168 seats are always filled with seekers of homestyle fries, meatloaf, fish chowder, Maine beans, warm baked rolls and breads — everything made fresh. The maple cream pie was good enough to get written up in Gourmet! If you can, hit the Sunday brunch.
