Nested within the Norristown Sunoco is one of the most recommendable delis in the state, according to a national travel writer.

Of all the primo dining experiences in the Montgomery County — Creeds in King of Prussia, Parc Bistro in Skippack, The Farmer’s Daughter in Blue Bell (to name just three) — who would imagine superlative food coming from the Norristown Sunoco station?

But according to NewsBreak’s Travel Maven, the grab-and-go fare at 1100 E. Ridge Pike is indeed worth five-stars.

Outside, it appears like any other fueling spot.

Inside, however, is a top-notch deli, Joey D’s.

From that business-in-a-business comes gigantic breakfast sandwiches filled with ingredients both common (pork roll) and surprising (ribeye steak).

Lunch is also an elevated experience: Joey D’s cheeseburgers, for example, are topped with barbecued bacon and mushrooms. And the signature noontime dish is a chicken cutlet topped with roasted peppers and provolone cheese.

Eating on the fly? The deli has numerous premade sammies, salads, and soups that make for time-saving and tasty takeout.

And perhaps best of all, the interior is clean, and the staff makes a noted effort to be friendly.
