Not daily but I pretty much always get gas there and usually grab a soda while I'm there.  Summer time prices kinda suck though because there is always a crap ton of scrubby people around the soda machines.  Yuck.

Some MHK elites once told me dara's was doing everything they could to stop QT from coming to Manhattan.

Question is IF QT came to Manhattan where would they set up shop? Would love to see one it the ville but I dont think there is enough space.

They should take over the space at Anderson and 11th Street.  By that Kinkos.  But they'll probably have to demolish Kinkos.  And I'm okay with that.

Knock down and rebuild the Dara's going out of town on 177. Every college student coming and going would hit it, most would still go there on the reg anyways for their awesome snacks. It would probably be the world's busiest QT on gamedays.

That doesn't prove anything.  Distributor could be located somewhere between the two.  Also, Tucson is a far bigger city than Manhattan and might have a distributor of its own.

I talked to my QT worker friend. She knows super insidery stuff (I knew about the breakfast taquitos and potato things months in advance, but both ended up  :barf:) cause she's in the corporate training program (that's another thing I learned, all QT employees, even the soon-to-be corporates have to spend 2 years in a store).

Anyways, she said that opening QTs is all about getting good deals on land to build their stores. So blame whoever is pricing the land out there, also said she wouldn't be surprised if Dara's had something to do with it.

Yes, Manhattan, KS, (like other towns) has a main chain of convenience stores (Dara's) and that chain does whatever they can (usually get the city to not allow QT to build in their town.)  St. Joseph, Missouri does the same thing, only their convenience store is Speedy's.

That's the exact same reasoning I've heard about why Kansas City doesn't have In n Out burger but Dallas does.

The only reason Dallas has In N Out now is because they decided they wanted to expand to Texas so they opened a new distributor there.  I'm from California so In N Out is a pretty big deal to me.  I'm torn between deciding whether I want them to expand across the whole country just so I can be guaranteed to be able to eat it anywhere and so others will know the joy of In N Out or if I want to stay smaller and more regional so it is more exclusive.

The Dillon's discount here in MHK is pretty good...60 cents/gallon at times, and they max out at $1/gallon. So, Mrs. Bones and I take our respective vehicles to the Dillon's pumps at the same time. Because the discount only works with one pump charge, I gas my SUV first, then hand the nozzle off to her and she fills her car. Dillon's is good with this and approves it. We save a lot of $.  :dance:

Just down the road (south) of the new high school.   Think it's like 167th street?   I haven't been yet but JTbro lives off of 135th so he's pretty excited to have one down the road.   Guess it's not real big but at least the rural location keeps a segment of the Walmart trash out...

What do you guys mean by "next gen" QTs?  Just the ones with the kitchens?

They are quite a bit bigger than the older stores that are around Wichita.  I think that one of the things they did in the lay out was to make sure there was room for liquor when that law changes.  They are also a lot more open inside the store with a patio area outside (mentioned earlier).  The nextgen label is just what it was called by the GC when I was bidding on the last one in Wichita.

i'm all for finding creative ways to not burn fossil fuels.  not a big fan of seeing us sucking down our already overstressed aquifers to inefficiently grow a bunch of plants where they aren't supposed to grow.  ethanol is great if there happens to be some organic material we have that can be produced efficiently and not be a net drain, but corn in the US is not the same as sugarcane in brazil

Oh. My. God.

The emissions are only better at the vehicular level, not close if you include production. Also, as mentioned, it gets worse gas mileage. Also, it is really really awful.

Yes using it in your car has slightly lower emissions, is safe, and yes it is subsidized to the point that it is about the same cost as gasoline (also subsidized, I know), but the production of ethanol for this is a terrible misuse of resources.  None of the current research seems to support ethanol as a sustainable, reusable fuel.

Yes that's good for sure.  It burns cleaner and over the long haul will keep your engine in better shape.  Phillips 66/ConocoPhillips is also top tier and at least in KS is usually not 10% ethanol.  There's one or two other top-tier brands (Exxon??  Shell?? BP??) but I can't remember who they are.

I agree, but if I were near the ocean there would be a lot of seafood options that are better than Red Lobster. For seafood in the midwest, other than a few diamonds in the rough, Red Lobster is usually about as good as it gets.

Just look at the seafood restaurants per capita on the coast compared to the midwest, which really only has Red Lobster. If your coastal city doesn't have a seafood place that is better than Red Lobster, I would say it's probably an anomaly.

They really are. It's amazing how much better they are than any other gas station anywhere. In Phoenix I stopped at a Kwik Stop or Circle K or something that had a "beer cave" that seemed kind of cool, even if it was totally white trashy. But it still had some snarly fat ugly employees and general messiness that you just don't see at QT.

Guys I went.  Have to be honest here, kinda freaked out with the new layout.

So there's like a section with a barrista now?  What happens over there?  How is it different from pouring my own coffee?  Do I have to tip?

Do they sell beer?  Maybe I missed it. 

Also, the tension on the entrance/exit door is pretty stiff.  Not like the older QT's.

Gladly.

The year was 2008, the summer of love.  I had just graduated High School.

I got into some legal trouble at the beginning of the Summer (before I had a job), and so my parents were on my ass about getting a job immediately.  I struck out on my first round of applications so I decided to work for a warehouse temp agency.  I got hired immediately and began working in a telecom warehouse that was moving from shawnee mission to southern olathe.  My job there consisted of driving a forklift and shipping the entire contents of a warehouse.  That lasted about a month, and then i was transferred to Ingersol Rand, a giant warehouse just south of 119th and Renner (just west of the Benchmark building).

I began work every day at 6 am.  My job there consisted of taking doorknobs out of one kind of box and putting them in different, newer looking boxes.  I also assembled doorknobs and locks and put them into boxes.  I did that for about a month and a half, then it was off to MHK.

It was a great experience for an 18 year old who needed a kick in the ass.

Yep, only at the super 21st century QTs . 

The small ones don't have the middle kitchen. Good news though, QT is starting to convert all their stores into the 21st century ones.  There's another going up at 37th and rock..

Central Market Dillons down the street too.

My side of town is booming.

Yeah, those pretzels are excellent.

The new QT by my place has personal pan pizzas for $5, haven't had one yet. They also do slices, but hyvee gas station down the road has $1 slices so I'm conflicted

WTF is going on here?   Pretzels and pizzas?!   Am I just going to the wrong QTs or just not spending enough on them to find the hidden gems?

This may have already been mentioned in this thread but my favorite pre-duckhunt meal is a couple of quick trip spicy chicken sandwiches with a 32oz. cup of Rooster Booster (original). There isn't anything much better than that when you're up and sober at 4:30 in the morning

I'm never up at 4:30 in the morning. Even if I was, I might not be sober, so I'd likely need a lot of Rooster Booster. Can it be injected?

That is remarkable if you are metro-based. There is a QT less than a minute from both my office and home. So if I go like 2 days without a visit it's a miracle.

I had a bunch of Twisters this summer when they had every size on sale for $1.99
I would say they are comparable to McFlurries. But while McD's only does M&M and Oreo, QT also offeres Reese's pieces and Butterfinger. More variety =  :thumbsup:

One thing I noticed, QT does a good job of catering to their individual micromarkets.  For example, at this one KCK QT I hit, there are like 4 bays of donuts and stuff, and they are mostly cleared out by 8AM.  But at another one I noticed it was one lonely bay and hardly touched at 8AM.

I was thinking of a different location (it'd definitely Broken Arrow).. but that one is still down the list of QT's I'd expect something like this to go down at.

Oh I'm aware of it now.  Funny/tragic story - a few years ago that same cousin's little sister graduated from HS so a few of us went down there and before the ceremony we had time to stop at Jimmy John's for lunch.  As we're pulling out of the Jimmy John's lot I see a Whataburger sign like 1 block down the street.  I was enraged that I was unknowingly so close to a Whataburger and didn't take advantage of it.  I seriously pouted about it for the rest of the day.

Did anyone notice they moved the QT in Platte City?  It was like, one day it was in it's normal spot and then the next day it was like 100 ft further back from the road and facing the other direction.
