Best convenience store

    Apologies if this debate has been had here before. But I was ecstatic upon hearing the news that Wawa is expanding all the way down the Baltimore-DC corridor:


    When I moved away from Philadelphia, Wawa was one of the things I missed the most, as there's one on practically every street corner there. There are a few in Virginia, but they're all at least a 45-minute drive away. I couldn't be happier about this expansion.

    Wawa pwns any other convenience store I've ever been in. And you're all stupid if you disagree with me. ;D

    Wawa is the best because of the sandwiches...

    7-11 is great as well... I liked AM/PM as a kid, but I think they're only on the west coast.

    All of the convenience stores where I live, suck...

    I'm two hours from the nearest Mountain Dew slurpee. :D

    I was expecting more when I moved here based on the rave reviews of Wawa. I prefer Sheetz' MTO sandwiches and meals so that's still my pick.

    Wawa is clean and you never feel like you are on top of people when you are in there. Plus, they might have the best coffee.

    Sheetz is good, but too cluttered.

    In my area, Speedway is the only convenience store of any worth. Circle K bought out the regional chain that I used to like.

    No 7-11 stores here ... worse, there's a local outfit that uses the "7" from the 7-11 logo, puts a "21" in a really small circle at the base of the 7, and tries to pass itself off as a 7-11 without the Slurpees. Double bad marks for having "open 24 hours" on its main sign in big type, only to be closed by the time I drive home from work every night.

    Quik Trip in the Atlanta area has a really good drink and grill selection. And Circle K is starting to match them in some of its larger stores.

    When you're driving out in the boondocks of flyover country, this is what you want to see on the edge of town ...


    Pizza. Donuts. Beer. Gas. Slim Jims. Scratch tickets.

    Casey's has what you need.

    The thing I miss most about PA is Sheetz To Go. The convenience stores in RI suck.

    Count me in as a 7-Eleven fan.

    Here in urban LA we also have a Japanese chain called Famima!! (sic) which is really strong as well.
