Guy’s Market on 68

In Restaurants by Eric Fontana1 Comment


When you think of made to order food items, you think of places like Sheetz, Sunoco, and 7-Eleven that offer premade, processed convenience food. The food at these establishments is typically not fresh, rather it is pre-packaged and heated up. Guy’s Market on Route 68 is in a league of its own and ups the ante when it comes to fresh, made to order food. If you are traveling the back roads of New Sewickley Township, you will want to stop for a bite to enjoy sizable portions of delicious food at affordable prices.

Guy’s Market on 68 has gourmet breakfast items, ‘sammiches’, wraps, ‘salats’, and ‘sidez/snax’. They even smoke their own turkey! In addition to offering fuel, beer, wine, and a wide selection of convenient store treats, Guy’s offers products from local favorites such as Brunton’s Dairy, Marburger Dairy, Anderson Candies, Last Chance Farm, Hershberger Baked Goods, Blackhawk Foods, and much more! Once you taste the high-quality food at Guy’s, it is going to be your new favorite go-to stop along Route 68. Let us take an in-depth look at what makes this hidden gem so special.

Breakfast items – Guy’s displays a variety of breakfast items, including both healthy and hearty options to satisfy your morning appetite. If you are looking to keep it simple, the “Basic” is a bagel, fried egg, rich cheddar cheese, and your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham. If you are looking to take it up a notch, the “Extra” is a bagel, fried egg, spicy pepper jack cheese, mixed greens, banana peppers, mayo, and your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham. You can also take the healthy route and go with a “Power Wrap” which consists of egg whites, sun dried tomatoes, mixed greens, feta cheese, and wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.

Lunch items – I cannot emphasize this enough; good food takes time! At Guy’s Market it takes time for the food to be cooked, everything is made to order and fresh! Their portions are also large, and you will not leave hungry!

Sammiches – The “Cali Baby” (captioned) features succulent, house-smoked turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, avocado, tomatoes, mixed greens, and is housed on two slices of bread. The “Fuel Up” starts with grilled chicken breast, bacon, cheddar cheese, and is finished with honey Dijon mustard which adds a great flavor kick and is served on a warm bun. Who does not love a good Philly Cheesesteak? The “Philly Me Up” starts with your choice of grilled sirloin steak, or grilled chicken, peppers, onions, melted provolone cheese, and finished with mayo layered on an Italian hoagie boat.

Wrap it up – The “Blazin Buffalo” showcases chicken tenders fried to a golden brown and tossed in a deluge of spicy buffalo sauce. It is topped with cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce, and house made ranch. You can also substitute grilled chicken. If you do not want the heat The “Southern Comfort” wrap is similar and uses barbecue sauce instead of buffalo. You cannot go wrong with the “Turkey” wrap as it uses their house-smoked turkey and topped with provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion.

Salats – Morgan Guy, the mastermind behind the menu, had a vision that she wanted to be a place that offered a good affordable salad that was not iceberg lettuce. A lot of her menu is based off areas of opportunity that she had seen with other places in the area not offering healthier type options, while not sacrificing taste that classic restaurant food is known for.

Salat selections include the “Cobb on” which is fresh mixed greens, grilled or fried chicken, crispy bacon, tomatoes, avocado, hard boiled eggs, and cheddar cheese. Kale is a super food for its many health benefits, and the “Kale Yeah” has plenty of it! It has a mountain of baby kale topped with dried cranberries, candid pecans, bacon, feta cheese, and sliced apples. The “Yinzer” is your typical Pittsburgh style salad. You get a choice of grilled sirloin steak or chicken, cheddar cheese, fries, tomatoes, onions, cucumber, hard boiled egg, a top a bed of mixed greens.

Sidez/Snax – A wide variety of items such as pepperoni pizza bites, boneless wings, chicken tenders, and other items are offered.

How to order (IMPORTANT) – Guy’s Market on 68 is only open for food Monday through Friday from 6am to 2pm. There can be some confusion about how and where to order. They take call in orders (which are appreciated), or you can order in person. The menus are displayed on TVs at the counter and customers can also place orders at the registers. It does take time for your food to be cooked as it is made to order and FRESH. It is not fast food.

Coffee/tea– Guy’s Market on 68 uses regionally famous Brunton’s Dairy Milk as a base to satisfy your caffeine kick. Choose from specialties such as iced/hot lattes, specialty coffees, expressos, and hot tea.

Alcohol – A wide selection of alcohol is sold. There is also a section of local vendors as well with names such as Libation Winery, Harkins Mill Winery, Saranac Brewing, North Country Brewing, Southern Tier Brewing, Troegs, Great Lakes, and Rivertowne Brewing. A big bonus is you can enjoy an alcoholic beverage with your meal in their dining area!

My Final Take

At the end of the day often what defines a business is the love and passion the owners pour into it. When you walk into this place you are immediately drawn to the modern design and vast number of goodies this establishment has. You are not going to find food at your typical convenience store that is anywhere near the quality and quantity of Guy’s Market on 68. You may have driven past this place numerous times not knowing that you were missing out big time! The secret is out, give this place a try, it will blow your mind!
