    Not sure where to put this so here we go . I am from NJ lived there till I was 30 . Moved to Fl 9 years ago . Being from the NJ and spending my summers at the Jersey shore , and Philly I have become accustomed to probably the best food imaginable. Now Moving to Florida (except for seafood) the food sucks.

    There is NO way a kiosk in the mall has Philly cheese steaks !!! No you are not selling NY style pizza !! I know this cause I lived it. There are NO Sub shops besides Jersey Mikes that are remotely close . Lastly 7-11 and Dunkin Donuts coffee will never compare to WaWa EVER ( i literally have family members mail me pounds of it from NJ) I REFUSE TO EXPLAIN WHAT WaWa is !

    Well I stand corrected....We stopped into a pizza place and WOW . Guys are from NJ and Brooklyn . I swear I took 1 bite and went into a trance , like Willy Wonka ( the new one) when he remembered his dad lol. The taste of the sauce flooded me with memories of my first 30 years. My wife laughed at me asking if I needed a moment LMAO .. It was soooo good I had to shake the guys hand that made it .

    I am smiling thinking about it !! Yes I am fat but thats besides the point lol...Just wanted to share for no real reason HAHAHAHHA

    If your from NJ , Philly or NY and moved away , you'll under stand .Its a NE thing ...

    WaWA is like the 711 from hell. It has a deli w/ automated ordering, cheaper gas ( at least here) good coffee .. ish like that
    up state the next equiv is a SHEETS.
  7. Wawa is like a quick stop but with really good coffee and made to order food that was fresh and good. I you ever travel in Texas and stop at Buckys, it is like that only a lot smaller.

    Hey TampaBaySean,
    I escaped the Peoples Republic of New Jersey in the early 90's. I miss the food the most. In central Jersey we had a Pizza (Italian) place on every block. Here in Texas it's a Mexican place. Even the Jersey and New York owned Italian places don't taste the same and the Chinese places are worse. What about Jersey tomatoes?

    I miss WaWa SOOOOO much! I was introduced to Sheetz when I moved to Harrisburg and was travelling throughout central/west PA. Some days I stopped at WaWa and the others I stopped at Sheetz. MMMMM.

    I need to make a trip.

    Oh, and I do actually have a real pizza place not far. Opened recently. Real pizza and a dose of NY attitude. :)

    It's kinda funny that this thread is titled "Food" and we're mostly talking about convenience stores!

    No kidding? I did a 3-year career as a CO in Leesburg. Went back to Rahway just before Fred Baker got killed.

    Leesburg...a little bit of Georgia in NJ. Below the Mason-Dixon line and they made sure you knew it, too.

    I live in the burb of Buffalo, the only thing this area has going for it beside the 20 minute commute to pretty much anywhere, is the food, I will miss it when I move.
