Restaurants: RaceTrac Across from Avalon

OK.  It’s not a restaurant.  But after all the RaceTrac slamming from the corporate suits at Chick-fil-A down at Alpharetta City Hall a few weeks ago,  I’m feeling like someone around here needs to take up for the RaceTrac.  There sits RaceTrac, all shiny and new and doing its job – and these suits step in and say: “Ha! – The only fast food you’ve got at that intersection is a RaceTrac! Ha”!  (sideways glance, roll of eyes, smirk).  Dang it. This is what makes Alpharetta look snobby people!  And rating number 4 on the latest “snobbiest places in Georgia” is NOT something to be proud of!

But here’s the deal, Chick-fil-A corporate, RaceTrac has you beat by a wide margin when it comes to ease of access in and out and going all directions from that intersection.  And not only can I get in and out easily, but while I’m there, I can fill my tank, use the rest room, AND….

I have at least 9+ coffees to choose from every morning.

And if you need to sit down and rest your feet a minute - you can do that.

And last but not least, I can get a lottery ticket while I’m there.  Try matching that Chick-fil-A.   Word.

  1. The only thing I want to experience at ANY gas station is reasonably priced gasoline and a clean interior. This RaceTrac delivers both. When I have friends come up from midtown they are amazed at how much cheaper the gas is (than in midtown). Score 1 Alpharetta.

  2. I, too, thought the RaceTrac bashing was excessive and in poor taste. I rarely go in for food/drinks, but I utilize this RaceTrac (and the new QT at Morris/Old Milton) because they are far more convenient for my typical traffic routing and often cut a couple of miles of driving for me.
