10. Twisted Brunch
Pretzel roll, pickles, lettuce, fire-roasted tomato sauce, mayo, nacho cheese, caramelized onions, fried egg, ketchup, and bacon
One of the "moistest" sandwiches of the bunch, the Twisted Brunch has us talking before we even tasted it: what kind of yellow sauce could possibly be oozing out of it? Is it melted cheese? Perhaps a nacho product? Is it mixed with buffalo sauce? I attempted to cut this sandwich into portions using a plastic butter knife and everything fell apart. We had to resort to eating this like messy toddlers. "Is there anything twisted about it?" we asked ourselves. We determined that it tasted like just about any value menu sandwich from a fast-food joint. The pickle and pretzel bun combination was a good move, but the egg, or egg-like rubbery disc, brought it down.
9. Firehouse Dog
Pretzel bun, pico, diced onions, habanero sauce, sour cream, and pepper jack cheese
We had been actively avoiding the lineup of hot dogs on the table. But the time had come to eat them and, much like our approach to sandwiches, we started with the "moistest" of the bunch. The first opinion came from Food Snob: "This is just lipstick on a pig." We agreed; this was simply a low-quality hot dog with a dollop of mediocre pico de gallo. Even the self-proclaimed Sheetz Lovers labeled the dog a "vaguely anti-Mexican concoction." This Southwestern attempt fell short in the end.
8. Boom Boom Pow Dog
Jalapeño dog, original hot dog bun, spicy Asian sauce, and Boom Boom sauce
Before we started eating, Food Snob chimed in with, "'Boom boom sauce' sounds like some disgusting Guy Fieri creation," and he was right. The Boom Boom Pow was lackluster and not very spicy despite its promise to "pack a punch." Beneath all of the badly seasoned goo, though, was a jalapeño cheese-filled hot dog that almost had that lovely snap you'd expect from a good natural-casing dog.
7. Bay Chili and Slaw
Jalapeño dog, original hot dog bun, Old Bay, chili, and coleslaw
The Bay Chili and Slaw ended the reign of the Sheetz hot dogs. This one also had the slightly tastier jalapeño cheese dog, but was topped with a weak chili and tasteless slaw. Although it didn't live up to our expectations, we decided that it was the best of the hot dogs; it vaguely reminded us of a chili cheese dog. This is one of Sheetz's attempts at using bolder flavor profile, and the effort is noted and commended.
