In Amarillo, there's a bit of a divide between "Pak-A-Sak people" and "Toot'n Totum people." Recently, I started wondering which one has the better "gas station food."

Coffee

Almost every morning, I stop at a gas station to get a cup of coffee to go with the pot of coffee I put in a thermos before leaving the house. I've tried both Pak-A-Sak and Toot'n Totum house blends.

When it comes to coffee, it's a toss up for me. This is largely due to the fact that I take my coffee black and don't really care how it tastes. Let's call a spade a spade. I'm a caffeine addict. It could be filtered through a sweaty sock and I'd probably still drink it.

I just stop at whatever gas station is on the same side of the road that I am when I stop for coffee, which is usually a Pak-A-Sak.

Breakfast

When it comes to grabbing something quick for breakfast, I do have a preference. When it comes to the offerings at both Pak-A-Sak and Toot'n Totum, they do have some similarities. However, Toot'n Totum has a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich that's on Texas toast that I love.

Lunch/Dinner/Snack

Again, both places have similar offerings when it comes to what you'll find beyond breakfast. For me personally, I'm just looking for a corn dog. Once in a while I'll go for a burrito.

Hopefully soon the new gas station from Eskimo Hut will be open and I can try that one out on my way to the office in the morning. I'm interested in seeing what all they will have to offer.
