Personally, I'm going to go with Wawa for the same reasons the OP did. Of course I grew up outside of Philly so I'm obviously biased, but there's something about Wawa sandwiches that beats anything on Sheetz's admittedly more diverse menu. I think it's the bread.

I would still love to have either one of them where I now live though (Alexandria, VA). All we have is crappy 7-11's. What's interesting is if you go about 15 miles south or 30 miles west, there are actually Sheetzes and Wawas with a mile or two of each other competing. Now that's a win-win for the customer.
I know of a Sheetz in Winchest, VA, I think that's only about an hour or so drive from Alexandria. Make a day trip out there for some fresh produce, shopping, great food, make a day of it, then stop at Sheetz

Wawa has the best, freshest food and coffee and the cleanest facilities and a good selection of groceries as well, including produce. I just wish the drive-through concept had taken off.

Sheetz looks more like a truck stop and their food doesn't even look appetizing - the rolls are part of it but I just think you have to be along the I-95 corridor to make decent food at convenience stores.

Turkey Hills are like a slightly upscale 7-11 but always dirty looking.

7-11s are FILTHY, expired products, really unappetizing "fresh" food. Just goes to show that the only good things coming out of Texas these days are beef, Frito Lay and Dr. Pepper!

I think this question is moot for most people. Where I live the closest Sheetz is in Morgantown. There are no Sheetz in Montgomery County that I have seen, not at least where I live and drive. They are very similar but I give the edge to WaWa for their coffee and deli.

To be honest, it depends on where I am. If I'm at home in York, I actually prefer Rutters to Sheetz, but if I'm out in West Chester, it's Wawa. Sorry, couldn't vote since it really depends on where I am.

Wawa beats Sheetz, hands down. I like Sheetz coffee, but I've never had Wawa coffee, so I can't compare. Wawa's food is better by a mile.

We have Sheetz all over the place in NE PA now, I just wish we had a Wawa. There used to be one in Wilkes-Barre, I'm not sure why it closed.....

Tough to chose only one but Wawa does it for me. They have great soup.

>>> I can name two ice teas that beat it, Clover Farms Icy Tea, the ice tea by which others are compared to, and Rosenbergers out of Montgomery county which is a close second. Turkey Hill is a respectable third.

I've had Clover Farms Iced Tea....not even close to Turkey Hill, since I don't remember it being anything but run-of-the-mill iced tea, not bad, but nothing special. Never had Rosenbergers. But I guess its all a matter of personal taste.

Wawa iced tea is pretty good too.
