Sheetz has better overall variety and store offerings, but as far as straight hoagies go, Wawa wins in a landslide. Better bread, better ingredients.


You would run away thinking he was going to mug you. :)

Maybe Ben 4-5 years ago. I would agree.

Another important one: Wawa or Sheetz?

I gotta go with Sheetz, because there's more of them around Pittsburgh. Nothing against Wawa, but when I was in Double-A ball in Altoona, Pennsylvania, Sheetz was all they had, so that's all I would eat. You could order a meal while pumping your gas? Why not?

The only Wawa I've ever been in was really really dirty and the bathroom was tiny. Was basically a regular gas station with food prep shoehorned in.

Wawa is good, but I don't think they have deep fryers

WaWa hoagie wise puts Sheetz to shame. Honestly never had anything else at WaWa. The once a year we go to jersey, WaWa is a required stop though.

To be fair Sheetz is the same thing, other than the new ones that have popped up around here recently that are semi-nice.

Almost every sheetz in Altoona is incredibly nice. Their food used to be excellent where I could eat it every day. Now I won't touch it. One sheetz in blairsville I think has frozen yogurt and add your own toppings

That Sheetz food review is actually more interesting than an ASG.

lol. As far as total food offerings, I'll take Sheetz all day, mainly because of the deep fryer and other more varied options. But if I just want a cold cut hoagie, Wawa shames Sheetz. Sheetz uses over-salty bread and other subpar ingredients.

Definitely more interesting than the preliminaries. Let's see how long we can drag this song out - none of us will be young when she's done singing.

This is going to really suck when the Pirates are forced to travel to Detroit for Game 7 of the World Series and Cutch is hit by a stray bullet from 8 mile

2 walks already for Liriano. This was the guy who was hand picked to lead the rotation out of the break.
