Wawa's breakfast is much better than Sheetz. The breakfast ciabatta sandwiches are great. Nothing special about Sheetz's shmuffins. Plus, at Wawa you can have your hoagie toasted. Although I do like Sheetz's pretzel melt sandwiches....and they have good chili dogs.

Wawa is out of Chester County and is also in New Jersey, Deleware, Maryland, and Virginia. Sheetz is out of Altoona and is also in Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, and Virginia (I think, not 100% sure).

I can say that Wawa wins for me because their sandwiches are incredible--Sheets has a long way to go in the sandwich department and that is what does it for me.
I love Wawa's coffee, a little better than Sheetz. However, both are better than Rutter's and Turkey Hill's. I will say Turkey Hill iced tea wins in that department, though.

I will also add that Turkey Hill and Rutters have modernized their operations in the last few years and the stores are modern, bigger and much more efficient. I will go on a limb and say that was partially with Sheetz moving into the Central PA.

To some degree, I concurr. It depends on the location. The newer stores are much better designed, IMO.

For me it would have to be Sheetz since the nearest WAWA is 30+ miles south in Md.
The only time I have been in a WAWA was traveling through Westminster and Easton ,Md. I was in the new Sheetz in Dillsburg,Pa. recently the only problem I have with it was the small parking lot and trying to get back to 15N. But it was grand opening week and very busy.

I was heading through Dillsburg and stopped for gas when they had that grand opening too. They were giving out free Starbucks drinks. Not bad at all.

WaWa, but the new prototype designed Sheetz completely blows away WaWa.

Layout-wise, definitely. That Altoona super-Sheetz is convenience store heaven.

But until Sheetz learns how to make a Wawa-style Italian hoagie, I'm voting Wawa.
