Front of Capi’s in Cary, NC Triangle Dining
Who woulda thunk it? A nice sandwich shop at a gas station? Well that’s what Capi’s is all about! Gas, snacks and solid food to go, my friend. Now it’s not all eight course dinners at the Washington Duke Inn for this foodie. Sometimes you just need something fast and quick and here’s where a place like Capi’s fit the bill. Hot, good quality eats that you can grab in slightly more time than it takes to fill up your tank.

With 2 locations in the area, this Capi’s off of Regency Parkway area bit hard to find. Take a left if you’re heading into Koka Booth, you’ll find a busy gas station and large attached store. In the back you’ll find Capi’s Deli which dishes out a variety of breakfast foods, made to order sandwiches and a hot case. Choose from all your favorites like a cold italian or hot pastrami. All sandwiches come on freshly baked bread, about 12″ and filled with fresh veggies for a bit under $5. I’ve done the pastrami a couple of times, layered with lettuce, pickles, peppers and mustard.
The Capi’s Club is a deal: two chicken breasts with ham, cheese and bacon, yum! Their sandwiches are largish and heavy with the toppings which is fine if you want to max your veggie intake. Grab a drink and bag of chips, grab a seat in the dining room and you’re ready to eat. Or just drag your sandwich kill back with you to the office which is what I typically do. Capi’s makes a decent sandwich and if you work in the area, it’s an easy and reasonable lunch option that will save you time.
So believe it or not, it is possible to get a nice meal at the gas station! In my San Francisco days I would have pooh-poohed the thought but now I try to keep an open mind. Solid, freshly made deli sandwiches at Capi’s! And no matter which sandwich you choose, I think you’ll be pleased. Just don’t forget to pull the gas nozzle out of your tank before you go rushing off with your food, you’ve been warned. Bon appetit!
