    Not a bad place for one. Those brisket tacos are fire, if I remember right.

    I hope this is true. Their chopped BBQ brisket sandwiches are better than most BBQ restaurant's.

    That would be amazing. I wouldn’t have to drive almost to DFW anymore. I hope it’s true.

    I live 5 miles from a new Buc-cees and don’t suspect I’ll ever go to it. I also don’t own a car, but I borrow my wife’s every month or so. I mean, it’s fine for a gas station, but what is actually above average? The kolaches, BBQ? It’s all pretty average. Just my opinion. I’m sure it’ll do well though.

    A lot of people feel that way. They’re very popular. To me, it’s a gas station trying to be Walmart.

    I've never been to, much less seen, one.
    It's a southern establishment, yes?

    In order - Beef jerky, the bathrooms(!), wall of gummy treats, the bathrooms(!), beaver nuggers, BBQ, the bathrooms(!)

    I wouldn't see myself using them just in town that often, but on family road trips they're a god send.

    I agree. I use it on road trips through Texas but going there if in town? Eh. Maybe for some fudge

    I forgot about the fudge. Add that to my list.

    Their product quality is about 500% better than the average WalMart, including their gasoline, to say nothing of the fact that their site-prepared BBQ is ridiculously good for the environment in which it is sold. Not trying to compare it to a Clark Crew or any other dedicated BBQ restaurant, but watching them chop the beef and prepare each sandwich individually is a site to behold. Heck, it was the same for the breakfast sandwiches and other food items - prepared on site, some on order. That's not easy to do, and do as well as they do it, and it's a darned sight better than anything WalMart has ever attempted.


    My wife went to Texas with a bunch of her friends about a year ago, stopping at a Buc-ee's along the way. I'd been whining to her about Buc-ee's for a long time and she kinda had the same attitude about it, meh, can't be that special - until she went there. I asked her if I oversold it, and she said, "nope, it's for real." It's now a standard stop for us en route to the Dallas area for OU-Texas.

    Unlike QT or ON CUE, Buc-ee's gas is not Top Tier. Their gas is more like Murphy than the aforementioned gas outlets.

    I've yet to see a Buc-ees that had a windshield washing station at each pump (wand, liquid, and paper towels). Since the vast majority of their business isn't local, I fail to understand why they chose to omit them? If I need gas, I will stop anywhere but there. I've been to the ones at TX Speedway, Madisonville, and Temple. No windshield cleaning stuff at any of them.

    This would be a welcome addition as it would be on my way out of town to Texas, which I've done quite a bit over the years. Agreed though that it's not somewhere I would really go as a regular in-town visit. It's more of a road trip kind of place since food and bathroom options tend to be less than ideal for most other gas stations.

    We love Buc-cee's ... we plan our refueling stops around their locations for our Galveston trips several times each year. For day-to-day needs, OnCue is my exclusive stop. On my travel needs through TX, Buc-cee's is my main stop.

    I heard this rumor a couple of months ago, and was trying to verify it. But the McClain County Assessor's site is practically useless.

    Okay, I’ll give y’all that they’re very clean and have good and interesting food *for a gas station*. I just don’t think they have that good of food for a non-gas station. They’re definitely better than most gas stations, lots of choices, and a bit of a novelty. I just don’t understand them personally as a destination in and of themselves.

    If it was going to be located on Riverwind property it would not show up on the county assessor site.

    I dare you to dig into a bag of beaver nuggets and see if you can stop digging before the bag is empty.
