The ones around me offer burgers and fries after 4 pm.

Wawa's are great, though. The parking lots are lawless hellscapes, but if you don't hold the door for like three people you feel like a bad neighbor.

It's not a culinary miracle or anything, but it really does taste like when I used to shove all of my thanksgiving leftovers in a pita and put it in the toaster when I was a kid, so I still like it.

Wawa was particularly useful during the pandemic. They adopted good sanitation protocols and kept stock up on things that were flying off the shelves elsewhere. Glad Kate gave 'em a shoutout because they really are culturally relevant in the region, especially for breakfast or late night.

Their Boston creme donuts also kick ass, and they are constantly brewing several varieties of fresh coffee. Plus they pioneered the touchscreen for meal orders-- it's been at least 15 years.

You look at the giant goose and wonder how desperate a town has to be for tourists to build such a pointless attraction. Then get gas, go to Subway, and drive all the way back to the Agawa Canyon trail head having learned a valuable lesson.

I remember in the early days of (a then college-only) Facebook, the Northerners at my school had rival groups over whether Sheetz or Wawa was better. My buddy from the Philly area was firmly in the Wawa camp. Also, the level of passion that people had about these convince stores with really silly names was hilarious ("A group for people who know that Sheetz is INFINITELY better than Wawa!").

We have Sheetz down here in NC now and I farking love them. Will have to try a Wawa next time I'm visiting family in DE.

/Weirdly, Sheetz has been here for like 10 years now and they still haven't expanded east of I-95.

The thing that sets Wawa apart is that they're all corporate stores, not franchises (with a very few exceptions).  So no matter what store you go to, you get pretty consistent quality in food and service, which is nice if you're away from home and want a sure thing.

Amen. My local alternative to wawa growing up in delaware was a local chain called country maid.  I live in the deep south now, Louisiana, so of course hoagies are virtually nonexistent. And even when they try to approximate it (or more typically attempt a cheesesteak) they use french bread. Which, imho, is usually a stale abomination shot straight from the devils asshole.

Even places that purport to be authentic Philly sandwich shops run by Philly expats can't get the bread right. One place near me even imports amoroso hoagie rolls. Maybe its the humidity here or something, but somehow they are not the same.

Well, the whole point of my bringing up the locations was to illustrate the convenience of getting milk, eggs, and sandwiches during the pandemic. You don't walk in a straight line and bump into Wawa after Wawa-- they're integrated into different micro neighborhoods, among the hundreds of parks, office buildings, and other damn stores. This isn't a Starbucks and strip malls situation.

It's the water.  If you can find Amoro's rolls you're doing pretty well.  Has something to do with the mineral content or some such.

Incidentally, when I first moved to Florida from eastern Pennsylvania I went on a quest for a passable Italian sandwich.  Believe it or not Wawa and Publix were in my top 5.  But you must get them made dry and add olive oil before eating.  Nobody down here makes them with it.  Philistines.

It is 100% the water. There's a large section in the book Donnie Brasco where the mob tries to sell NY/Philly style sandwiches down in Florida. Soft water ruins the rolls. They started flying planes packed with rolls down there, and then gallons of northeast water down there to make their own. Too expensive to turn a profit.

Vinegar on an Italian sandwich is blasphemy.  Olive oil only.

When I make them at home my wife makes me put friggin Mayo on them.  Had I known this before we got married...

Anyway, moving away from Italians for a sec - Screpesi's in Reading is my absolute fave on the planet for both Italians and Ham and cheese.  They put butter on the roll for the ham and cheese.  It's marvelous.  Place has been around forever and it is unchanged since I started going there in the late 70s.  It's the only thing I miss about Pa since moving to Florida.

//rt 29 in Lovingston VA


Right before I moved out of Maryland I was working in a Royal Farms (fed up with contracting and it was a full time job.  Allegedly).  When the chicken is fresh, it can't be beat.  But you can only expect fresh chicken during heavy traffic (and after they burn through the chicken pre-made to get through the rush).

Don't ask about the "official corporate" way to always have chicken ready.  It is designed to make sure the chicken is at least two hours old (or older, they purposely restart the clock so they can claim it is way more fresh than it is).  If the manager pushes corporate policy, the chicken will suck.  More likely the manager will try to avoid running out of chicken, but will try to keep it mostly fresh (unlike the corporate system).

//but mostly doesn't care about such things
