Exactly. If it's busy I won't, but if it's dead I'll special order everything.

Meh. To each their own, but if the cooks doing their job correctly, the food shouldn't be cold.

My fiance's dog was put down tonight. She was an old yellow lab. She had been hanging on for the last year or so and she just stopped eating the other day and they vet determined she had either cancer or kidney failure. Last week my family dog was diagnosed with some kind degenerative hip condition and the doc said she could be around for a few more years or a few more months. Not a good month to be a dog that I know.

That's so hard. But so much better for the dog, and the most unselfish thing a pet owner can do.

I physically can't like dogs. My allergies are too harsh.

It doesn't help that I think they have a bigger tendency to be annoying than anything else, anyway.

This. Or Burger Kings. I don't know if I have the luck of going there or something, but everytime I do, their fries are always extra crispy and super hot. I honestly think McDonalds has the worst. Even if I get fresh fries, they're still soggy.

I've never been to Sheetz, and I didn't intend to start the Sheetz v. Wawa debate. I just think Wawa gets an unwarranted amount of praise around here. (And by around here, I mean the area, not HF.)

I like WaWa for the prices. There are certainly places you can get better quality food, but when you are drunk at 3 AM it's pretty clutch.

Basically. Who expects top quality food at 2am at what is essentially a gas station?

That's why Wawa is the best (especially Super WaWa with gas, like the one down the street from my house). The food is good, the prices are fair, and it's the most convenient place to go for food since it's 24 hours and they always have hot food options in the deli. They have a good deli section, tons of coffee, Ben and Jerry's, Tastykakes, and every other awesome snack I can think of. IMHO, Wawa has a better selection then Sheetz and 7-11.

And someone here said they didn't like the Wawa rolls. They use Amoroso rolls, they are good rolls.

So what's the best way to get in contact with Danny Briere? haha. I got ahold of a pair of his game used skated and plan on giving them to my little brothers as a christmas present, (age 6 and 7). and I want to try to get then signed.

That was me, too. I don't care for the rolls at all, and only get anything deli related from there in a last ditch effort. The real issue is there's a Lee's around the corner from the Wawa closest to my house, so it simply doesn't make sense to go their for hoagies.

Edit: I do enjoy ciabattas.

I know the situation is different, but I did something similar years back for my one brother with Darren Daulton. I directly contacted the organization, briefly stating what I was trying to do, and they were great helping out.

Yeah, this would explain your opinion on Wawa then, lol.

Well, Wawa is perfect for what it is, a convenient, reasonably priced gas station/cornerstore. If you are looking for top quality hoagies though, Wawa is not your best bet.

However, Wawa's gas prices and 24 hours a day system makes it the best for when you get the munchies, whether it be 4 pm or 4 am.

wawa is a special place where you stumble in drunk, blindy grab gummi bears and gatorade, all while failing to correctly tell the touch screen you want a chicken sandwich, and cant get past the "DO YOU WANT YOUR ROLL TOASTED" question.
