Eating Vegetarian at: Sheetz

Most of you have probably never heard of Sheetz, mainly because:

us states

 

Yeah, it is almost exclusive to only a few states in the northwest US.  Also, this is the only eating place that is not even a restaurant. It’s a grab-n-go and refueling station that also has made-to-order food. And while I am not sure if every Sheets sells the same food, I will just go based off of their printable menu, and based off of what food I buy whenever I get something to eat there after work.


sheetz (1)Eating vegetarian here really limits you if you want to find a decent protein-sensible food. Each food item can be made meat free, but that usually means protein-free, as there is very few protein substitutes here. The only thing they have is a cheese sub, and that is about as rich in protein as this store goes. You can’t order extra of any toppings, as that option just isn’t in the menu, you can only request extra of certain toppings they allow you to order extra of.

I generally buy Mac-n-Cheese with olives and other vegetables in it, but you can order other foods as well, such as:

  • Cheese Sandwich/Sub/Wrap
  • Veggie Sandwich/Sub/Wrap
  • Cheese/Veggie Pizza
  • Onion Rings
  • Tater Tots
  • French Fries
  • there are salads you can make-to-order without meat
  • Mozzarella Sticks
  • Vegetarian Burrito
  • Apple Slices
  • Coleslaw
  • Mac and Cheese

And that is not including desserts, drinks, or breakfast items. Or anything else you can buy from the store, such as fruit, potato chips, bread, and the like.

If we add in the items that are Specifically Vegan, we have:

  • French Fries
  • Totz
  • Vegetarian Burrito
  • Vegetarian sub/sandwich/Wrap

I do not know if the Pizza crust or even the tortilla wrap is fully vegan, and I am not sure if you can order the pizza without cheese.

The main issue I would have is that there is not a way to really substitute the protein in anything. You can’t replace the meat with beans, or cheese, or anything, you only have the choices that are given to you. And if you have the option to add extra cheese (which you usually do in the case of subs and sandwiches) it generally costs a fair amount more to include, granted, the meat-less options are usually cheaper. But they do have some higher protein options if you are a lacto-vegetarian. The Vegetarian burrito also comes with beans, so that is good.

  1. You mean north east US? Also midsouth. However, you are correct about the lack of vegetarian meals. All menus are the same and there are also soft pretzels as well as vegetarian breakfast items that are served 24/7.

    1. “You mean north east US?” I thought the picture I included would be evidence enough of what i meant.

      And I understand about the breakfast items, but I never include them because nobody really orders them after a specific time. I just include typical anytime meals.

      1. Was not trying to be rude. Only pointed it out because I was confused at first when it didn’t coorelate to the map.

        Didn’t realize you were basing this on your position and what people typically order.

        I came across your post because my fiance recently started there and I was looking to see if there was any veggie meals I didn’t know about. If I’m lucky he brings me a snack after his shift. I was trying to help regarding the other items – saw them after downloading the menu.

        Anyway, I didn’t intend to rub you the wrong way. Your blog in general is great. Have a wonderful day.

        1. Oh, I wasn’t trying to be rude either, sorry ^_^;;

          Sheetz is good for snacks like the pretzels and stuff,, but I would probably never go there for a full meal. They’re really limited in that regard.

          Sorry again if i sounded upset, it was probably because I got into an argument with someone last night, it’s not you. ^_^ You have a good day as well
