18 replies in less than 4 hours on a post about gas station food. Lmao, you'd think it was the offseason or something.



I figured we needed some levity after the Sammy and Brad Sweet keyboard Civil Wars of these past few days!

To me the responses to this thread say a few things. As sprint car fans we all seem to use convience stores coming and going to the races for gas, food, beer, ice and snacks, etc....and as sprint car fans we appreciate and are loyal to companies like Casey's who sponsor the sport.....other chains should recogonize this and get involved in dirt track racing....they would make their investment back tenfold in many local areas. Fans support those who support the sport in most cases.

" Casey's pizza is amazing. "???? 

Obviously you're not from Noo Yawk

I'm surprised to hear it from a Pittsburgh area guy too....



I've never had pizza that isn't from a pizzeria that I would call amazing.

Rutters has a good selection, as does Sheetz but at the end of the day it's still gas station food. Better than it used to for sure, way better, but fine dining it is not. It's still a step below a fast food restaurant. FWIW Wawa is rated the best.

I don't care for much of Wawa's food other than their breakfast sandwiches. For someone who is from the land of Sheetz and now lives surrounded by Wawa, I'll take Sheetz or Rutters food first.

I once puked from eating half a casey's supreme pizza one night, but it could've been because I drank a 12 pack of Busch Light and 2-3 rum and cokes and smoked a a half pack of cigarettes before eating it...I can't remember for sure.

Those fans that attend the ChiliBowl in Tulsa, know very well what the best Conveinence Store in the US is.  It's Quik-Trip.  There are several within a mile or so radius of EXPO Square.  Although they are not widespread across the US, where they are located, Tulsa, Dallas/FtWorth, Atlanta, St Louis, Phoenix, Charolette, Wichita, Kansas City, Tuscon.  They are the largest and and best rated stores in those locations.  They make Sheetz look like beginners.

Nah, those sandwiches are better than McDonald's, IMHO....

You should try some of the "gas station food" in Southwest Louisiana (Cajun Country)... scrumptious!

Yes, I was talking about them in my early post I just called them QT instead.    They are awesome, but have any of you guys ever been to a Bucee's?   Bucee's will blow away any other convenience store in terms of food or anything else, they're huge with sometimes over 100 gas pumps, and they're wall to wall people.

To DrySlickWillie,

Y'all or Ya'll got Buc-ees in TX, never seen a station with 40+ pumps, go in to buy clothes, food, gas grill or most of your groceries as needed.

Buc-ee's Katy Store

I am puzzled why neither Sheetz nor Rutters (based in York, PA) sponsor a PA sprint car.    Their stores are close to race tracks.     A lot of fans drive by BOTH stores on their way to races and have their choice between the two.    Some stores sell 6 packs now too.   If either would sponsor a race car I think it would pay off quickly because loyal race fans would gravitate to that brand.
 
I can kinda understand Sheetz (being based in Altoona which is a couple hours away) ignoring Posse race fans but Rutters should realize the opportunity on race nights.
 
If I ever see a Casey's General Store I think I'll stop and fill up even if I only need 2 gallons because I feel like I "know" them.

Bucee's has taken the convenience store market to another level.  My only isssue with them and most of the others is they have good fresh food offerings but usually no common area to sit and eat.  There is also a regional chain that has it all including areas to eat and includes a fast food outfit like Subway or Burger KIng.  It's LOVES Travel Plazas and their growing leeps and bounds adding 40 new stores this year to a total of 500 Nation wide.

Best convenience store food item in the world . . . . THE WaWa hoagie, italian with provolone.  What would you expect from somebody from Philly?  Close second, Wawa breakfast sandwiches . . . bacon and egg on a shorti roll!

Casey's is great, really appreciate their support of this sport over the years, BUT, their pizza ain't all that.  And breakfast pizza is only a thing in the midwest where apparently people want to walk around with heartburn and belch all day.

Sheetz is pretty good, a solid second to WaWa.

Special mention to the BEST convenience store name brand EVER, Kum 'N Go!

Well Love's is actually more of a truck stop like Pilot or Flying J.  Majority of them I've been to have already had a Subway, McDonalds, BK or others in them. One I fuel up at regulary even has Dunkin in it which is great because I live on Dunkin coffee.

I’ve had WaWa a couple times and felt like I was missing something. Not bad but overrated. Royal Farm is a one trick pony. Good if ya want chicken but most of the rest is meh. Rutter’s is decent and a wide variety. Love Sheetz, same as Rutter’s but just overall better food. Would certainly give Casey’s a shot when the opportunity presents itself.

I would also take Sheetz over McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and other similar places 9 out of 10 times.

Probably cause they're making Big $$$ without sponsoring?

& they're not fans?

I had a human resource class in college taught by the guy who invented the Sheetz MTO, and I asked why theye wouldn’t sponsor local racing. He told me that yea ago they gave a local late model guy sponsorship and the guy flakes out and never turned a lap. Apparently they decided it wasn’t worth their effort after that.

Oh, so now we're on truck stops?

There's only one important question: WHICH ONES HAVE PINBALL MACHINES????

The one i play at most often is Petro Iron Skillet restaurant in Carlisle, Pa. (easy, scenic 15 minute drive to Williams Grove if you take the back road (S. Middlesex)
