Best convenience store

    In Louisiana, you can buy hard liquor in gas stations (they also have drive-thru daiquiri bars). Any other states where you can do that?

    Bunch of alcoholics, Louisianans are.

    Could be talking about Connecticut as well. No beer in convenience stores and no Sunday sales.

    I luv me some Sheetz when I head out to PA. Cumberland Farms is big out here. .89 for any size coffee or fountain drink-not bad.

    Just returned from my first trip to Wawa.

    Wawa >>>>> Sheetz.

    The sammich was much better than Sheetz puts out these days. Way better bread. The meat was similar. Also, the sound effects at the check out counter were awesome. Some laser gun noise anytime they scan an item. Sounded like a fucking arcade or casino. Big points there.

    Also, I saw a lady buy two cartons of Pall Mall's and two Coke's and pay with a credit card. Classy gal.

    I will say that the Sheetz I knew back in the early part of the 2000s would give today's WaWa a run for its money, but the current Sheetz? Nah. Not even close.

    Must be very regional, because I've never seen a Cumberland Farms in my life.

    Buc-ees is great, but I can't imagine going there regularly, like for actual convenience store needs. I've only been to the flagship stores or whatever going in to Houston on 45 or 10, so I'm guessing the other stores are smaller.

    QT is where it's at.

    I think something is amiss with the calibration on the gasoline pumps at the convenience stores in my area.

    I put in 12.1 gallons the other day (according to what it said I got, and what I was charged for).

    But my tank holds only 11.9 (according to the owner's manual), and my low-fuel warning light had not even come on (which usually means you have well more than a gallon left).

    Allsups is more of a West Texas chain, but the eastern edge of its reach spills over into the Metroplex. Their chimichangas are killer.

    Daileys has become a pretty good choice in the metro Nashville area.

    And after I bagged on our local stores, stopped at a Chevron today that sold growlers for premium beers.

    I fill my tank past full all time time. I think it's supposed to hold 11 gallons but I can get 13 in there easily. And the needle's always pointing above the full line after a fill.

    Pretty sure I haven't seen United Dairy Farmers on this thread. One of the best parts about a trip to Cincinnati. Doesn't matter if it's middle of winter and 0 degrees, I'm getting a large vanilla shake.
