When I think of the good old days, I think of walking to Sheetz slightly impaired at 3 a.m. and grabbing some delicious food. While walking there we’d be debating about the best Sheetz food. The point is, if anyone can talk about the Sheetz menu, it’s me. In this article, we’re going to discuss the best food at Sheetz.
If you think the Sheetz MTO feature was cool now, imagine how cool it was 20 years ago. We didn’t even have iPhones yet, but we were able to stumble up to a screen, touch a few delicious-looking images and a few minutes later we are munching on said delicious images. Amazing!
The Sheetz App
Since we didn’t have iPhones (or Androids) we obviously weren’t yet introduced to the Sheetz mobile app. If you are a regular at Sheetz, you MUST add this to your arsenal. Take advantage of Sheetz rewards, find awesome promotional offers and most importantly you can achieve your lifelong dream of becoming a Sheetz Freak. And when you make it to Sheetz Freak status, they even reward you with a gift the next time you go into the store. Plus it’s much easier to find the best things to eat at Sheez when you can scroll through their app from the comfort of your home.
Here’s what the app looks like if you are a Sheetz Freak like me.
Okay, it’s time to get into the best food at Sheetz.
Best Sheetz Breakfast Items
Let’s give breakfast its own category. Even though you can order breakfast 24×7 at Sheetz, we’re going to make it its own category. There’s so much on the Sheetz breakfast menu, let’s get into this!
Sheetz Breakfast Sandwich
The Shmiscuit has always been my go-to. Shmiscuit is how you say biscuit is Sheetzian. Get it with sausage, bacon, ham, steak or chicken sausage. Of course you can have egg (scrambled, fried or white) and then cheese and any other topping you would reasonably want on a sandwich. I like to keep it simple. Bacon, egg and cheese. That’s not to say I haven’t went nuts and loaded this baby up with guacamole, caramelized onion and salsa before. Or you can replicate the McGriddles and go sausage, egg and maple syrup.
I chose the Schmiscuit, because I am a biscuit guy. I’ll take it every day of the week over the other bread options. But if you’re not, you’re still covered. The other options for Sheetz breakfast sandwiches are:
- Everything Shmagelz
- Subs (that’s right, breakfast subs)
Even though I’m a Schmiscuit guy, everyone has to a Sheetz waffle breakfast sandwich at least once.
Sheetz Breakfast Sides
My top choice is the mini hashbrowns. Anyone ever had a bad hashbrown? Me either.
Here are the other options:
- Cinnapocketz (By Cinnabon)
- French Toast Sticks (YUM)
- Cheesy Bacon Tater Bombs
Sheetz Breakfast Platter
Pick a meat (sausage, bacon, ham, steak or chicken sausage), pick your bread (bagel, biscuit, croissant, English muffin, sourdough, everything bagel or waffle) and choose a side(mini hashbrowns or tots). You also get to choose toppings, spreads and dippers. Your basic breakfast platter. Can’t go wrong with these.
Best Sheetz Not Breakfast Food
Okay, now it’s time for the main event. Breakfast food is good, but my favorite stuff is not part of the breakfast menu. Let’s go!
Best MTO at Sheetz
The best food MTO at Sheetz is the steak burrito, in my humble opinion. I top mine with cheddar cheese, rice and beans, salsa, sour cream and taco sauce. The taco sauce comes in a packet. I usually put 2-3 packets in there.
Choosing this as my favorite was not an easy call. Let’s go over some of the delicious options that were in consideration.
Sheetz Chicken Sandwich
Even Sheetz got sucked into the Chicken Sandwich Wars. It’s your standard chicken sandwich like they have at Chick-fil-A or Popeyes. Is it the best sandwich at Sheetz? Nope, but it is still a very strong option. And of course, since it’s Sheetz you can top your sandwich with anything you’d like.
Sheetz Subs, Sandwiches and Wraps
There’s every type of sub you would expect. Chicken, steak, turkey, pizza and more. You can have them toasted and you can find just about any topping you’d like. These are an excellent option.
Sheetz Pizza Review
Is Sheetz pizza good? Yes, the personal pan pizzas at Sheetz are an awesome option. If you’d never had one you should get one today.
A good friend of mine sold me on trying one of these burgers. He said it’s the best burger he’s ever had. While I would never consider going that far, it’s definitely a solid burger, especially when you consider you got it at a gas station.
Also, I made a video where I went over my experience with the Sheetz burger.
There are plenty of delicious fried apps at Sheetz. Chicken strips, boneless bites, chicken sliders, curly fryz, fried pickle chips and more. The apps section is something definitely worth checking out in the Sheetz app.
And I made a video featuring some of my favorite choices for the Sheetz Appetizer Sampler.
The Rest of the Menu
There are still some items I did not cover just because there are so many options available. Some of these include:
- Mac and Cheese
- Hot Dogs (more on that later)
- French Toast Sticks
There’s something for everyone at Sheetz. Remember, there’s two people in this world: people who know Sheetz has the best gas station food and those who have only had Wawa. Trust me.
Best Value at Sheetz
To me, this one is a no-brainer. The best value food item at Sheetz is the 2/$1 hot dogs. This includes the basic toppings. No chili or cheese. I generally go mustard or mustard and relish. No ketchup for me on a hot dog, since I am not a psycho. If you’re really hungry bump it up to four hot dogs. Not many ways out there to fill up on $2.
Adding chili is .45 cents per dog and cheese is .50. So two hot dogs with mustard, chili and onion are $1.90. That is a deal!
Sheetz milkshakes are incredible. There are so many options to go with. From Oreos to Reese’s Peanut Butter to every other flavor you could imagine. There are some very creative Sheetz milkshake flavors. If you’re looking for something sweet, a milkshake is definitely a great option.
There are other MTO drink options including coffee, lattes, smoothies and more. These are definitely worth a look.
A lot of items come and go at Sheetz. Some of these include deep fried oreos, Nashville Chicken Sandwich and many others. Keep your eyes open in the app because these come and go and some of them are seriously good!
Here’s a video I made featuring the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich:
Keto Options at Sheetz
While Sheetz isn’t the best place to go on the keto diet, there are some options. A Sheetz salad is a great keto option, just make sure you keep an eye out for them sneaking in carbs. A grilled chicken salad is a great place to start.
The breakfast platter is a great keto option as well. And they will serve you breakfast no matter what time of day it is.
Another option is to get a sandwich or burger without a bun. Just stack up the veggies as toppings and you are good to go!
You are not doomed if you are on the ketogenic diet and you see a Sheetz. You can definitely eat low carb at Sheetz.
Healthy Food at Sheetz
When you think of gas station food you probably don’t imagine there aren’t many healthy options. Well, Sheetz actually has some healthy food options. Here are some of the healthy choices:
Of course not all salads are healthy, but you can get a grilled chicken salad with light dressing and add all types of healthy vegetables to your Sheetz salad. Now you can go another route and and drown your salad in ranch and use fried chicken. Not all salads are healthy, but you are more than able to get a healthy salad at Sheetz.
You can get a turkey or grilled chicken flatbread for a delicious, nutritious meal. Load it up with veggies and a light spread and you’ve got yourself a healthy lunch.
The Eat Shmart Section in the Mobile App
For an array of healthy Sheetz food, download the mobile app and check out the eat shmart section. Touch made-to-order food and then “Eat Shmart.” Here’s an example of what you’ll see there:
Sheetz Food Review
Overall, Sheetz is a great food option, especially when you consider it’s a gas station. The variety on the menu is incredible. There’s something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a sub, hot dog, burger or breakfast at Sheetz, there are so many solid options.
What Happened to the Sheetz Special Request Button?
This is for the old-school Sheetz Freaks out there. Back in the day when you ordered in the store at the touch screen, you were able to hit a “Special Request” button and one of the Sheetz workers would come up and ask you about it when I got a moment.
A moment of silence for the Sheetz Special Request Button
How Do I Access the Secret Menu on Sheetz?
The secret menu at Sheetz is only accessed by visiting a kiosk in the store. You go to the “Hot Dogs & Brats” section from the main menu and then click on the icon that says “Pop’s Kitchen” on the bottom.
The secret menu is not available at all stores, but it’s always worth a shot!
Where are Sheetz Stores Located?
Sheetz stores are located in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina.
Is Sheetz and Wawa the Same Company?
No! In fact, Sheetz and Wawa are intense rivals to one another.
Is Wawa or Sheetz Better?
Sheetz is undoubtedly better than Wawa.
What is the Best Thing to Eat at Sheetz?
For breakfast, the best thing to eat at Sheetz is the sausage, egg and cheese Shmiscuit. For lunch or dinner the Big Mozz with tater tots is the move.
Can you buy beer at sheetz in PA?
Yes, you can buy beer in some Sheetz locations, but not all. The Beer Cave is offered in many PA Sheetz locations and the number of locations that offer it continue to grow.
Does Sheetz Have Eggs?
This is a two-part answer. Sheetz offers individually wrapped hard-boiled eggs, but they do not sell dozens of eggs. Prepackaged hard-boiled eggs at a gas station may seem dicey for food safety reasons, but they are okay to get at Sheetz. But if you’re looking for only cage free eggs, it’s unlikely you find that at Sheetz.
Is Sheetz Food Good?
Yes, Sheetz food is delicious!
In closing, I want to say that Sheetz is the best gas station food option there is. Whether you want to go after the Sheetz hoagies, Sheetz desserts or Sheetz snacks, there are so many options! The food is delicious, there’s an incredible variety of options and the prices are very reasonable. If you’ve never been to one, I urge you to check it out the next time you see one on a road trip. Especially now that you know what to get at Sheetz. You will not be let down.
