If one is accustomed to silver service fine dining, served by a fawning liveried flunkey, then it's highly likely one will never have recoursed to dining at such outlets as described above.

Conversely, the "K n C " Guide to A.la Carte Alfresco Dining " ( 99.99, / $150 plus postage and packing, cash only, no returns permitted ) would dispel the myths posted. As per the States, these roadside / city centre stalls are now much more regulated than in years gone by......a quick look at the outside generally gives a very good clue as to the inside......even my stomach declined to go anywhere near one example that looked like it had been loaned from a scrap yard, outside Dudley bus station.....but the standard of food is surprisingly high elsewhere. Likewise with transport cafes / truck stops.
The thing that puts me off eating in the lay-by vans is the lack of, ahem, facilities!
