Dysart's makes its national debut

The Travel Channel films a show at the Hermon truck stop

HERMON - Locals all know how tasty the food is at Dysart's truck stop in Hermon, and soon so will the whole country. Last Tuesday, the Travel Channel spent the day filming the restaurant's staff, customers and the creation of the restaurant's pot roast, lobster rolls and blueberry pie for an episode of 'Food Paradise,' a show that zeros in on some of the best eats around the country.

Buchanan's boyfriend, Dysart's chef Shaun Yazbeck, has been looking forward to the Travel Channel stopping in.
