Wawa does indeed make a passable Italian Sandwich.  And I'm a bit of an Italian sandwich snob.

Of course, I live in Florida.  So it's pretty slim  pickings.  Publix isn't too terrible.  But you have to put your own olive oil on it after you get it home.  They looked at me like I had two heads when I asked for it.

Not really "New Mexico made"; Allsup's buys their chimichangas frozen from a copmpany called Ajinomoto Winsor (Posada brand), HQ in California.

Do you mean an Italian Combo with oil & vinegar ?

You can get a hot dog at a gourmet restaurant or a truck stop There is a big difference but alas, it is a hot dog, Think of gas station fare; pickled pigs feet and eggs, corndogs, boiled peanuts, hot pretzels It is easy to see a chimichanga come out on top Seasoned filling with cheese in a deep fried wrapper with salsa It's an obvious win

The local pick.  Although still selling gas is more or less a gimmick at this point for Joe's, they started out as gas station food and keep the pumps operational.

If you can't find it the stores down there, you can make and bottle your own. Make sure you get a good olive oil.

This. Also, Allsup's is based in Texas. Subby has probably never set foot in one.

There's an Alsups on the way home from Santa Fe that I often hit after I go skiing. Nothing like eating a molten-lava hot chimi in the car, dripping melted food on your chest while driving to keep you awake for the drive home.

Well, that's a pretty low bar. That's like saying the best hookers you can rent in a parking lot are in truck stops... it's not hard to be true in relativity without a lot of qualifiers.

And obviously this doesn't apply as it is only technically a gas station, it is a restaurant.

They only have vegetable oil.  No olive oil.

And only a barbarian would put vinegar on an Italian sandwich.

The only hot peppers I like are fried in olive oil and garlic.  Those banana peppers are nasty.

Balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar. If only Italy had those...

The Mom and Pop gas station / mini-mart at Turner's Corner (west of Maltby) for years made an awesome BBQ beef deep fried burrito you could buy hot out of the deli case for cheap-cheap. Its been sold a while back and was a chapel for a bit while a bigger church was built on the property. Now its back to being a mini-mart but I'm all but certain those burritos are a thing of the past.

these pastries have roots in Texas dating back to the 1840s, when Czech settlers found themselves in Texas following years of cultural upheaval in Central Europe.

It's 180 years after their families came here, and I know people in Schulenburg who still speak Czech

I don't want to complain here, but I thought I was going to see a chimicanga and it ended up being a burrito?

And on another note, the gas station near me has a kitchen that makes some killer breakfast sandwiches.  My current favorite is the ribe eye, hot cheese, egg and potato on a soft hoagie roll.

This brand use sport peppers. Throw it on some nacho cheese and steak fries and you'll be happy as hell.

That's good, but that's the vinegar based one, the other is olive oil based. I don't mind either one, it's up to what you put it on and your taste.
