USA, Texas, Waller – Buc-ee’s

We all have stopped a the gas station/convenience store as we drive America’s interstate highways. Buc-ee’s takes that concept to an entire new level!

For instance the Buc-ee’s in New Braunfels, Texas is a little bigger than the run of the mill gas stop with 120 gas pumps. The 68,000 square foot store has over 80 toilets! And every time I have stopped at a Buc-ee’s the restrooms are always very clean.

But-ee’s do not allow 18 wheelers. The stores carry a large selection of fresh jerky, and there are a variety of fresh sandwiches and packaged food items. Made to order sandwiches and tacos can be ordered from their large deli. Of course coffee, fountain drinks and a large cooler with bottled and canned beverages is also available.

Beyond the food items, the stores carry a wide variety of Texas-themed products. They also have items for travelers and sportsmen. One of our favorite purchases are “Beaver Nuggets”. These are caramel and butter-glazed corn puffs.

While I have stopped at the New Braunfels location, the first large Buc-ee’s I visited was in Waller. I had never seen a convenience store so large. I have also visited the Temple location which is not quite so large, but has nearly everything.

All the Buc-ee’s locations are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are not every where yet but the chain is spreading. Certainly every road trip I take now means at least one stop at a Buc-ee’s. If we are traveling with kids, they almost always want to get their picture taken with the large Buc-ee statue out front.

If you are traveling the highways of Texas and see a Buc-ee’s I suggest taking the time to stop. You always need gas and facilities and food. In my opinion, there is no better location for that than Buc-ee’s.
