Here in Georgia, and a lot of the southeast, QuikTrip and RaceTrac have recently (as of like 5 years ago) been exploding as... restaurants, essentially. Both now have full, attended kitchens cooking hot food on demand, as well as your typical pizza and hot dog rollers. But when I visit my family in Michigan, stopping at the gas station for lunch is a laughable suggestion. They still pretty much just carry junk food, tobacco, and booze around there.

So I’m wondering... other than RaceTrac, QuikTrip, Wawa, and Sheetz... what gas stations are evolving into fast food? Are there any more? What other places are missing out on this phenomenon?
