What you're getting: The Chevito
DC has a weirdly thriving gas station food culture, but one out of one Thrillist editors agrees that these are the best sandwiches you're going to find within a stone's throw of some unleaded. They do the classics, but the move is one of the Latin American-leaning sandos like the Cuban, Milanesa, or king of them all, the Chevito, which features a whopping 10 ingredients, including tenderloin, mozzarella, Black Forest ham, bacon, green olives, hard-boiled eggs, escabeche, LTO, and mayo on a soft roll. Bonus points for serving until 2am.
