Buc-ees outside of Texas.

For those who live in Texas might be familiar with the store and gas station that has a beaver as its logo.   Now they have a store in AL and soon to be one in Daytona Beach, FL.

I read that one shortly after moving to Jacksonville, FL. Nice to have one in a hourís drive.

I liked the Buc-ees I went to near Terrell. I drove by the new location on I-10 @ the (new) Foley Beach Expressway exit, and it was still under construction. I wonder if they sell Texas style or Alabama style BBQ at the new Buc-ees in AL?

Is this more or less like the Texas version of Sheetz? We don't have any mega-convenience stores like that in CT. I'm tired of just 7-Eleven, Cumberland Farms and Citgo-Food Bag here in greater Hartford.

That would be if a place like Sheetz had 96 gas pumps.

I went to a couple in Texas. One was near Temple off I-35, the other was on US 59 somewhere, near Victoria maybe. I had heard of Buc-eeís and had a vague idea of what it entailed before but I was still stunned at this supermarket-sized travel center.

That many?  I heard Terrell has 84 and 74 stalls in the restrooms.

Beaver logo businesses in Texas?  Those should be in Oregon!  Next thing you know, those sneaky Longhorns will steal our Ducks too...LOL!

The location chart on the Buc-ee's Wikipedia page shows upwards of 100-120 at some locations.  I saw a post at a non-road forum a while back from someone that stopped at the one on I-45 in Madisonville, and all their pumps were busy--with lines at each!  It's amazing the level of popularity of their stores, and it doesn't seem to fade anywhere.

My first stop at a Buc-ee's was at that exact store on the Friday before Christmas. There wasn't a line at the pump, but the inside of the store was absolutely packed. I was going to snag some Beaver Nuggets but took three steps inside and changed my mind.

There's a brand-new Buc-ee's in Melissa that's closer to me and I'll visit at some quiet point in the year. I want to get the T-shirt too.

I see they have a big wall of Beef Jerky.  How many flavors could they possibly be to fill a wall?

Are their stores really the size of a supermarket?

The New Braunfels location is 67,000 sq. ft., their biggest, and supposedly biggest convenience store in the world.

There are many *many* YouTube vids from curious customers:
