For good food on the road, give Sheetz a shot

Last month I wrote here about this new commercial for Sheetz that has been playing like crazy around here...

I'd gotten gas plenty of times from a Sheetz station whenever I've been driving here and yonder. But until this past weekend I had never bought anything more than a bottled soft drink from the place so far as dietary consumables are concerned.

And then came the way wee hours of yesterday morning - around 1:30 a.m. to be precise - when I was leaving High Point after dropping off fellow blogger Matt Federico following a concert in Cary (which I'm about to write a review of).

So it was unconscionably late at night (or too early depending on your point of view) and not only was my trusty vehicle needing some juice, but I hadn't had anything to eat since around 8 the previous morning. So on my way back to my own domicile I found the Sheetz on Highway 68 near PTI Airport and after gassing up, chose to follow up on satisfying my own hunger pangs.

Folks, if you ever get the chance, I can say that I will heartily recommend perusing from and selecting from the awesome made to order menu that Sheetz has available. I bought a foot-long ham sandwich, "custom tailored" via a touch screen with whatever it is that you want on your item. Within 30 seconds I had my sandwich order made with white bread, a good choice of toppings and Italian dressing. A few minutes after paying it was ready and I went out the door. I waited before getting home to indulge myself and found that my sandwich was exceptionally delicious! So much so that I felt compelled to give it a positive write-up here on the blog.

Sheetz locations can be found stretching from northeast Ohio on down through central North Carolina. If you don't have a Sheetz near you, the company is apparently in the midst of a considerable drive in its growth. Be on the lookout for 'em and when one pops up in your neighborhood, give their food a try! :-)

Sheetz Italian sandwich is one of my favorites. And I love that commercial too! Sheetz is a great company and I want to be able to cross the entire country and see a Sheetz store every few exits!
