Texas may be the land of Buc-ee’s, but the East Coast can claim Wawa. Just two years shy of its 60th birthday, Pennsylvania-born Wawa has long been the beloved roadside stop of travelers from Florida to Delaware (they also have locations in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey, with plans to expand to North Carolina and Georgia). If you’ve never heard of the crowd-favorite gas station, we’ve got important intel about what to order next time you find yourself in the vicinity of one. The built-to-order hoagies alone are worth braking for.

Built-to-Order Hoagies

If you love a Publix sub, you’ll be delighted by the gas station’s customizable hot hoagie menu, which includes everything from classic sandwiches like Meatball and Cheesesteak to seasonally inspired options like the Gobbler, stacked with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry.


Start your day with one of Wawa’s nine freshly made fruit smoothies. Choose from varieties like Strawberry Banana and Blueberry Pomegranate Mango, then add whipped cream on top for a little something extra, if you dare.

Iced Coffee

No long-distance drive is complete without a little caffeine boost. They offer seven different roasts, plus an extensive list of other iced coffee drinks, like macchiatos and cold brew. Download the Wawa app to score a free hot or iced coffee on Tuesdays. 


You can’t go wrong with Wawa’s first meal of the day. Get your egg fix with a burrito, quesadilla, bowl, or Sizzli Breakfast Sandwich, served on a bagel, biscuit, or croissant. 


Come dinnertime, don’t sleep on one of Wawa’s first menu items. Their Angus beef burgers are served on brioche buns with whatever toppings you choose.

Frozen Cappuccinos

Whether you’re craving a cold, creamy finish to a meal or looking for a caffeinated pick-me-up in the afternoon, their blended coffee beverages are sure to hit the spot. Opt for a traditional Frozen Cappuccino, or try a dessert-worthy flavor like Mint Cookies & Cream or Caramel Chocolate Chip. 

Wawa Brand Milk and Ice Cream

Given the company’s origins in the dairy business, it’s little wonder that Wawa Milk and Wawa Ice Cream are still essential to their lineup today. Riding shotgun? Grab a pint of Butter Pecan or Moose Tracks for the road; your secret is safe with us if you choose to dig right in with a spoon.

Mac & Cheese

Any place that serves up to six varieties of the melty, cheesy stuff is right up our alley. Choose from regular mac & cheese and garlic aioli, chipotle, buffalo, ranch, and sriracha variations.
