Sheetz Tuna Salad sandwich! - Fri, 12/2/11 2:03 PM
Stopped at a Sheetz to fill up, while waiting went inside, had a Jones for a Tuna sandwich. Ordered one with double Tuna, onions and pickels. Cost $5.00. So So Bun, fantastic Tuna Salad, I'm not kidding, If you love tuna salad like I do and you got a Sheetz nearby, try one, you will be suprised how good it is...Let us know what you think!
PS. While there one of my regulars came up and said to me, I won't tell I saw you here, LOL!

Sheetz are not in Tennessee but I stop at them whenever I am in Virginia and North Carolina.  I also like WaWa.
 
They both have a unique service approach.

I love a good tuna sandwich. Unfortunately, sheetz is not around me, nor is wawa or heritages (also makes a good tuna fish sandwich).

I'm sorry, I could not eat at a place called SHEETZ.
 
That food gives me the sheetz.

I looked up the Sheetz web site, their menu is as large as most restaurants/sandwich shops. I think this concept is a great idea. I thought at first Chewy was "Full of Sheetz" but now I would have to say he is on the cutting edge...................pnwc

What was so special about the Tuna Salad Chewy? Texture, ingredients, anything different? BTW, did you ever try my recipe?

I don't know what they put in the tuna, it's good quality, for sure, has seasonings that really compliment it, not too much mayo, my guess is it's packed in oil, as it isn't at all dry. You can add many toppings, I added onions and dill pickels. Usually I can easily deconstruct food, not this time Dawn!
I believe I did try your recipe, but that was a long time ago, please remind me!

Think we PM'd this one, I didn't post it. Mine used finely chopped onion heated in some oil, then some lemon juice,sugar,S&P and the relish added when it cools a bit, and added to restore texture to water pack tuna and then cooled in the fridge b4 adding the celery and the heavy mayo when it's cold. Sometimes I add either chopped egg, dill,capers, or grate some lemon zest for a change.  96 oz can of institutional skipjack instead of white for better taste. Ring any bells? Solves the problem of cottony tasting tuna unless you can find it packed in oil.

I was in a Sheetz yesterday for the first time (I've bought gasoline there a number of times, but I'd never gone inside), and I found it interesting that you order stuff using a touch screen. I'll have to try the tuna salad one of these days.

Sheetz makes some tasty garlic fries too.

I really like the tuna salad at ShopRite's salad bar.  I put some in a container with some lettuce and onions, grab I nice roll from the bakery and I have a nice little sandwich.

Never heard of Scheetz so I looked them up. Started as one store in Altoona PA in 1952 and is now a privately held 5 Billion $$$ company with over 400 stores and ranked #58 on the Forbes list of Top Privately held companies in the USA!
Their history should be required reading for all those "Occupiers" sitting on their duffs in the park on "How to Get from Being a 99%er to a 1%er". It's that 4 letter word----WORK!

We have Sheetz all over the W. PA area.  I have gone in to pay for gas or get a newspaper but never tried the tuna salad.  The ones in this area do a huge take-out food business.

I had a Sheetz Chef Salad for dinner, it was pretty good. I used to get their egg salad but they quit carrying it. :(

Sheetz and WaWa have similar operations.  I like both their styles.  Great way to order as there is less chance of confusion on your choices of condiments and sides.  Both stores are a bit of an adventure to shop and both seem to have a very nice selection.  When I travel in their direction, I always choose either for gas, rest and food.  We do not have either in Tennessee.

CTF:  The Sheetz tuna sounds great.  I am close to - but not in - Sheetz' territory but I will make a point to try it next time I'm up that way.
 
FTR: I am in Wawa territory.  There's much to admire about Wawa but I don't recommend their tuna salad.  Bland dressing (I doubt it's real mayo) and way too much salt.  I you have it, get the jumbo soda because you're going to be thirsty (which may be their idea).

I worked at one of the early Sheetz in Altoona back in the day 1982. Trust me, it wasn't pretty. Just profitable. Just because they've gone all corporate doesn't mean they're palatable.

Have you changed in 30 years?

It is unfortunate this discussion has been hijacked by a ranting right-winger to spout the same old lies.  There is a considerable body of research showing the one per cent get there by either inheritance or by lying, cheating and stealing.  "Hard work" is the lot of the people in convenience stores making minimum wage.   "Teabme" shows John Dickinson was right: Those with nothing would rather protect the possibility of becoming right than face the reality of being poor, and that is why they will follow us (the rich).
