I like Sheetz but I really wish we had WaWa instead. Their subs are soo much better than what you can get at Sheetz.

I could see Buc-ee's hitting Sheetz harder than non-Sheetz. If you're just going for gas then you're going to go to any old station. If you're going for gas and grub, I don't know how anyone would willingly pick Sheetz.

I'm just hoping that their NC Buc-ee's has the same assortment as the TX Buc-ee's (i.e. Jerky and Kolaches). I will make the 45 minute drive out there.

I would love a good place to get Kolaches. The owners of our favorite local donut place came from Texas and they have said that there is a special flour for Kolaches and they are not able to get it here. Not sure how true that is, but that is what they told us.

interesting - I'm no Kolache expert but there's a sandwich shop in downtown Raleigh (Carroll's Kitchen) where the most popular menu item is their Kolaches

My kids used to like the self-order kiosks at Sheetz, but I think the glamor has worn off. We drive electric 90% of the time so don't stop for gas anywhere usually. Highly recommend electric vehicles.

Years before Sheetz came to NC; when we would take family roadtrips up north to see relatives when I was a kid....sis and I would BEG to stop at a Sheetz (at that time we saw them mostly in PA) because we thought it was so cool to order food from the computerized kiosk and customize it however we wanted.

Was excited to see Sheetz expand here locally several years ago as a 20-something and had the nastolgia trip for a hot minute....it wore off fairly quickly.

They do need some more locations here; I have a couple of suggestions:

- I-85 in either Gaston County or Cabarrus County outside of Charlotte
- I-40 near I-95 or I-95 near I-40 in Benson. After Exit 312 on 40 the offerings (read: Food Gas Lodging) really start to get bare.
- I-77 near I-40 or I-40 near I-77 in Statesville
- I-40 between Greensboro and Winston Salem
- I-95 in Cumberland County (I would have said Robeson, but I don’t know how much space Buc-ee’s wants between locations and I heard there was one coming to Florence, SC too.)
- I-26 between Greenville, South Carolina and Asheville
- Either I-85 near the Virginia state line or I-95 near the Virginia state line.

The Kolaches in TX are regional. I'm no expert either but I believe a "true" Kolache is a sweet pastry.

The TX (and Buc-ee's) version is typically a smoked sausage and cheese, with or without jalapeno. Regional or not...I love 'em.

Here's some additional info on Buc-ee's: https://www.thrillist.com/eat/nation...best-rest-stop
