You Wouldn’t Expect Some Of The Best Sandwiches In Iowa To Be From A Gas Station, But They Are
When driving through Iowa’s rural eastern parts, you might not see anywhere to stop and fuel up for a while. A roadside gas station can be a blessed sight – especially when there are a few surprises being sold there! That’s definitely the case for Colony Point, a small convenience store and deli inside a BP gas station in the town of Williamsburg. About a half-hour from Cedar Rapids and 17 miles south of the Amana Colonies, this humble spot is worth a visit – because it serves some of the best sandwiches in Iowa! A deli counter makes them to order, but the secret is in the ingredients. How are these simple ham sandwiches so good? It’s because the meat comes from one of the most iconic areas in Iowa – and that’s not the only reason to pay a visit to Colony Point.
The deli itself is old-school and has no online presence, but if you want to visit the source of that delicious ham, make sure to check out Amana Meat Shop & Smokehouse’s website or the shop’s Facebook page. For another roadside stop you shouldn’t miss, check out this delicious breakfast cafe.
