BRB going to 7-11 for toquitos and a 32oz Dr. Pepper.
But when did you have a pop last?
I understood the meet me in Temecula reference.
Loves is a main stay on my road trips.
Buccees chopped brisket tacos (regular or breakfast) are fire, as are the Beaver Nugs. I stopped at one post concert and ordered food from their kiosks and got piping hot chili cheese fries at like 1am. They do good work there. They also post their wages and benefits on big red signs around their stores in one of the more communist things I've ever seen. Weird for a Texas company, but good on em.
Never had anything at buccees that wasn't pretty decent. Those places are always packed though. No thank you.
There are some really good restaurants in gas stations in Mississippi. Like, sit down diner type restaurants, great BBQ places, delis, etc. No idea why that’s the case.
I love a gas station corn dog from a place where the oil smells like it's about a week old and I feel no shame about it
the best chicken tendies and samosas of my life were from a gas station in oregon that was perfectly situated in the area i covered when i was driving for work
family making homemade chutneys and shit, top tier
Sheetz is pretty awesome, fresh stoner food 24-7
when i lived in nova for summers during college i became a fan
felt wawa was overrated in comparison
Yeah, Wawa is nothing special. Sizzli and the Gobbler are good, but Sheetz’ à la carte game is pregnant woman certified.
Love samosas but pakora is my jam.
gave it up for my new year’s resolution but I was only drinking one a month so it hasn’t been that difficult.
best thai in asheville is a 2 table place inside a sketchy gas station in arden. it’s run by two old thai ladies who speak maybe 5 words of english between them. i love it
funny enough black bear pizza right across the street also is inside a gas station and has amazing pizza
already murdered a man
my favorite bbq place is in a gas station. Joe's in KC #Kansas City Chiefs
same, veggie pakora is automatic.
nah i lived in corvallis and covered from Albany to Sweet Home. was right east of I-5.
I was asking because as you know, Oregon is VERY white and the idea of a gas station that serves Indian food... well outside of Portland it seemed pretty unlikely
It's absolutely legit
But take it to bbq thread
What spot? We like Suwana’s but always looking to expand our culinary adventures.
I think I saw Guy visit this place
Are any of these gas stations with actual home made food on two-lane roads with nothing else in sight like on tv? That’s the roadside food I want.
the only indian dish they serve, or did, is samosas. just a normal oregon gas station in that it serves fried shit, jojos/tendies/etc. think its just an indian family that cranks some of their own food out to augment as its a truck stop and there's a lot of non-white truck drivers. was a good article about it a year or two ago how it's led to a lot of wild food being served at truck stops.
I watched some YouTube video about this. Apparently there are a ton of Indian truckers who do cross country trips and there are a handful of stops like that one, and they all know exactly where they are
There is some massive one in Nebraska iirc
Although I prefer one of the other locations due to greater seating capacity. Food is just as good.
The best fried chicken i've ever had was from some shit hole looking local convenience store. They had lots of other good food too, but the chicken was their specialty.
All over the Mississippi Delta.
people in general and immigrants especially being unapologetic about their food and setting up shop where anyone else would tell them not to is an inspiration
i never thought i liked tamales until i had some out of a cooler next to the register at a convenience store in spartanburg sc i lived by
can find incredible food in bizarre places
Driving to Dallas from PA in 2011 we had to stop for gas in MS between Tuscaloosa and New Orleans.
Last time I ever had to pay for gas with cash because they did not accept credit cards. They had homemade pork rinds, which were incredible.
Lot of gas stations around me sell homemade breakfast. Can drop in and grab a biscuit or container of cheese grits. Really good.
Allegedly the best burger in Atlanta is in a gas station but I wasn't super impressed by it.
Think the best Philly in town is in a gas station as well but I haven't been.
Same for bbq. Arguably best bbq in Atlanta is in a gas station.
Lots of good breakfasts in the south at gas stations. I couldn't tell you the place, but on the road between Tuscaloosa and Montgomery I stopped a couple times during a summer internship at a gas station that had the most fire fresh breakfast sandwiches. I love a good sausage egg and cheese, which they crushed, but the fried bologna fried egg sandwich with cheese is whats stuck in my memory.
It really is amazing how many places there are like that.
Name names homie
Good tamales are a gift from god himself
Access to credit I'd imagine. C-Stores are considered some of the safest loans a bank can make whereas restaurants have a high probability of failure. I think it's pretty common for restaurateurs to request financing for a C-Store with a culinary component because they'd never get approved if it was a stand alone restaurant venture. Pretty sure that's what happened with this Thai Restaurant in Hoover. They tried to borrower money all over town to open their restaurant and couldn't get approval. So they changed the business model to include a C-store component. Basically. they're a restaurant that sells gas, not a Gas Station that sells food.
Big Dave's cheese steaks
I am in ANC, AMA
Got some excellent chicken sketti at a chevron outside of Oxford once, actually.
Haven't had any from a gas station. Have had solid boudain from gas stations in Mississippi and one rural truck stop in Arkansas.
But there are amazing tamales in Lake Village Arkansas. Little roadside shack just off the main highway and over the train tracks. She also made classic souls food and 3 kinds of pies in either full size or personal: Pecan, sweet potato, or half and half. Gotta get back there soon.
I prefer delta-style tamales to Latin tamales.
What is a delta tamale?
They’re smaller, and have less masa/corn meal
