I have a great affection for truck stops.  My dad was an over-the-road truck driver who hauled cars out of my hometown of Kenosha, WI.  Some of my fondest memories were going out on a "trip" with my dad which, by the way, was against company policy and maybe against the law.  As you might expect, my favorite part was stopping to eat at his favorite truck stops.  This was back in the 70s and the food was great and everybody knew my dad.  Good times...

Well, according to the taste makers at msn.com, one of the best truck stops in the country is just up the road on 131.  76th Street Diner is in Byron Center at exit 74 off US 131.  Here's what they had to say:  This 24/7 truck stop restaurant just south of Grand Rapids off Highway 131 offers an affordable mix of American and Tex-Mex comfort foods — the $7 plate of "Monster" pancakes is worth serious consideration. The 76th Street Diner is praised by online reviewers for food that's consistently good and service that's warm and friendly.
