Typically, many people only stop by the gas station to follow a three step simple routine: Pump your gas, go inside and grab a bag of chips, and then leave. Most likely, you won’t even waste your time going to check out the food section which usually consists of rotten hotdogs, 2-month old hot-pockets, and some mystery meat sandwich that no person in their right mind would even think about purchasing.
The negative connotation that is associated with gas station food is rightfully justified majority of the time, unless you’ve discovered the king of all gas stations ever invented: The Flying J. Besides the ridiculously cheap gas that is sold at this marvelous establishment, the cuisine is something that demands to have your attention as well.
The Flying J has food that is made with high quality standards, for an extremely low price. The deals range everywhere from 2 pizza slices for 5 dollars, to giant breakfast sandwiches that are only $2.49 each. If you are into making healthy food choices, they also offer fresh fruit that is replaced hourly, and oatmeal that is exclusive to Pilot Flying J. If you aren’t convinced about how incredible this place is, I’m going to help you get as passionate about their food as I am.
5. First things first, their pizza is the realest
That’s right, this pizza puts Dominos and Papa John’s to shame. The crust is an exceptional twisty bread that melts in your mouth, topped with a golden buttery glaze that will leave you instantly begging for more. The meat lovers choice is topped with sausage, pepperoni and crunchy bacon that is crisp to the touch.
#SpoonTip: If the pizza out on the display doesn’t meet your standards, ask the workers to make you a fresh one.
4. These aren’t your typical carnival corn dogs
Yes, I must admit corn dogs are one of my favorite foods. They make theirs fresh, every hour and ready to serve. The inside hot dog is large, filling, and cooked to pure perfection, with outside breading that is crispy like no other.
3. Fruit salad, yummy yummy
There are so many delicious fruit options sold at this establishment that you must try. After just one bite into their juicy pineapples, you’ll be wondering why you never tried it sooner.
2. Chicken Wings
Honestly, who needs Hooters and Dick Wings when you could have some of the best wings in your life right here?
#SpoonTip: for all my carb free people out there, they offer breaded and non-breaded options, but either way both options will leave you begging for more.
1. Cinnamon Rolls
I bet your taste buds are already going wild after thinking about how awesome it is to put a warm, gooey, fresh cinnamon bun right into your mouth. Lucky for you, the Flying J has plenty of gigantic buns made fresh right on the spot just for you.
