I understand the sentiment wrt lightning and having something open 24 hours.... but FWIW my neighbor's brother is a TX State Trooper. He's always ready to regale us w/ stories of how much of his time is demanded at truck stops. It's not a huge sample size, but the feeling of security at those places might be a bit spurious. It probably differs from one spot to another though.My personal preference is a 24 hour truck stop type location. Feels more secure. Always have restrooms available & a quick snack if needed.
With a Model 3 & V3 chargers the stop really isn't that long to worry about where to eat if it isn't basically attached.
Again, my personal preference. It's a bit longer with our S but still nothing I would consider heading to a sit-down restaurant.
Also, agreed that a v3 charger can make it a quick stop... but if I'm taking a break to charge on a long trip passing through I'll usually combine that with a bite to eat since I've had to come off the road anyway. The v3 charge times can make that tricky though for avoiding idle time & fees.
