Everyone who's been to the new one in Kentucky reports the place is insanely crowded.

Eesh.  That's too bad.  Sounds like when people descended upon the Sonic in Latham, NY en masse...

The first In-N-Burger in the Phoenix area backed up traffic three miles both ways on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard in Scottsdale the day it opened.  My office was across the parking lot, I walked right in and had my food within 15 minutes.  Getting home was nuts for about a week.

Also, Adam’s take on Buc-ee’s in St. Augustine:

The way that Northeasterners mob Sonic is hilarious here in Oklahoma. Around here Sonic is part of the small-town starter pack (you can put it across the street from your Dollar General and next to your Love's).

Yep, I agree.  Even just down the road in NJ and DE, it ain't that special.  And yet, the Capital District went crazy over it.

Then again, the most popular restaurants were Olive Garden and Red Lobster...A whole lot of people in Albany and Upstate NY in general don't know what good food is.

Not sure if the locations in central NY were ever mobbed like that, but now they're struggling.  One location in Syracuse seems to change managment monthly.

Even a new location of a known quantity can draw crowds. There was some hoopla recently about the opening of another Chick-Fil-A in Lexington. Never mind that there are already existing locations. The constabulary was preparing for traffic jams around the new store.

I went to the grand opening of the location in Florence, SC earlier today!! At the ribbon cutting, Governor McMaster and owner Arch "Beaver" Aplin were there.

There is an Arch Beaver?  Is this like an Arch Vile in Beaver form or an Arch Bishop Beaver spreading the good news of Buc-ee’s?
