Best results for 1-hr photo?

I've got a couple of Kodak 800Max film rolls that need to be developed. I want to have the best chance of them looking good due to their subject matter. Where's the best place to take film like that? It doesn't have to be 1hr, though that's a good way to see how the negs turned out and have better reprints done elsewhere. About three years ago, a KMart put spots on some negatives, so I've kinda steered clear of them ever since. We seem to have a pretty typical assortment of the 1hr places around here, from CVS to WalMart. Also have Wolf Camera.

Local pro photography stores will probably have the best chance of having it turn out well...but I use Costco for all my film development. The local stores here are a bit pretentious for my taste.

I would trust Wolf, even if it costs more. I'm not a photog really, but I haven't heard any bad stories from them. Much easier to build a relationship with them for future dealings, with people who only do that for a living (e.g. when I worked at Walgreens as a kid, they sometimes threw me in the photo dept.--not a great idea.)

I have had 1 hour stores trash my negatives before. I also second using Wolf, or a photo speciality store, just because its only a matter of time before most of the 1 hour stores move to only handling digital items, and its good to know a store that knows what they are doing.

Send them to me and I'll have them processed at Colour Services. It's a local outfit that does a lot of processing for Brooks Institute. They do great work on slides, 120/4x5 film. Also will drum-scan and give you a DVD as well.
