QuikTrip: 4/1/13

Date Night takes you to a place where the gas is guaranteed and you are guaranteed to get gas.

What lurks inside?

As we move into APRIL, it would be FOOLISH of food snobs like us to admit that hot dogs on metal rollers are somewhat appealing.

Can you smell them?
Can you smell them?

Add to that a warm bun, and the prospects become downright mouth watering.

Where do they hide the buns?

Here’s a QT corporate secret: the buns are in a warming drawer right beneath the hot dogs. Now you know!

If rotating tubes of processed meat do not excite you, QT is all about variety.

You cook these yourself.
You cook these yourself.

There are at least three kinds of hamburgers as well as chicken sandwiches. Don’t want to eat them cold? No worries, there is a microwave nearby so every meal can be eaten at the perfect temperature as the chef intended. You are a regular Emeril Lagasse as you heat your burger to perfection. Bam!

In case you must have Mexican food.

Feeling gassy yet? If not, you can carbonate your meal and your stomach.

Something from the tap?

There is also a variety of frozen delicacies on tap.

Or perhaps a frozen beverage?

Our loyal readers know that Date Night always orders the craft beer, and we avoid places that have dreary “convenience store” beer lists. At the QT, you get a genuine convenience store beer list.

An interesting beer list.
Move along, nothing to see here.

There’s plenty to choose from, as long as you like mass-produced, tasteless beer. Our wine drinking friends will not be disappointed.

Perhaps you like wine better?
At least the wine is not in boxes.

A good meal always ends with a special dessert. Sure, you can be conventional and go with a gourmet treat…

Ice cream always works for dessert.

If you really want to have something different, step right up to the donut display.

Donuts are good anytime.
Donuts are good anytime.

At around 400 calories a pop, you will want to share one with your date. Rumor has it that if you buy a Nesquik chocolate milk, they will throw in the donut for free. Add to that the clean restrooms, and QT is a place that has it all. What a great way to spend your APRIL FOOL’S Date Night!

Note: Thanks to regular Date Night readers RR and CR for suggesting tonight’s topic!
