    Swears by Circle K, even if strange things are afoot there.

    QuickTrip here is putting in a walk-in beer cooler. What more could you ask for?

    Pilot stores are hit and miss. The good ones will have food and beverage selection rivaling a QT, in addition to a choice between crushed ice and cubed ice. The not-so-good ones can be run down with little to no selection of stuff.

    Casting a vote for GetGo in western Pennsylvania and Ohio - it's Giant Eagle's chain of convenience stores.

    Famima is pretty solid - they have prepackaged hot foods that are a cut above the reheated hamburgers at AM/PM.

    There's one corner in Tucson (22nd and Kolb, maybe) that has two Circle K catercorner to each other. They both have exactly the same thing - gas with an attached convenience store. I assume this is so its convenient for you to get gas/food and go no matter which direction you are traveling, but I've never seen anything else like it.

    I've never gotten a sandwich at Wawa, but I've always liked it because pretty much every one I've ever been in was clean and well-stocked. The coffee always seems fresh, too. There was a Wawa in my apartment building when I lived in Philly. I went in there almost every day for something.

    I usually only get soda or coffee from convenience stores and find am/pm to be expensive.

    In SoCal, I like the stores connected to Chevron gas stations. They offer a wide variety of inexpensive coffee, plus Icees.

    WaWa is tremendous. In my late teens I worked at an amusement park right up the road from one, and a bunch of us would go there every night after work. We'd get there around 11 p.m., get some hoagies and a drink and hang out in the parking lot until 1 or 2 a.m.
    Even better was I rarely paid for anything out of my own pocket. The ride I worked on was a giant shakedown machine. Change would fall out of people's pockets all the time, and they'd get off the ride without realizing it. Or, it would fall into the area under the ride. Either way, we'd scoop it up. On a good day you'd pick up $5 or $10 -- just enough to pay for a late-night dinner at WaWa.
    Good times, man. Best summer of my life.

    I'll take QuikTrip over all others in general, because of cleanliness, selection, the number of teeth the clerks have, etc.

    For hot food, it's Casey's for me. They make a mean taco pizza.
  10. Yeah. Pilot stores here suck. Filthy dirty.

    Best? Sheetz.

    End of Thread.

    Beacon & Bridge is a very small Michigan chain. I had one near my house and the coffee, beer and liquor selection were very good (ie. not just Busch, Bud and Miller products).
  12. Here in Texas, I like Buc-ees.
