A beloved Texas roadside stop with the “best bathrooms in the nation”

When you’re on a road trip and your gas tank is nearing empty, your bladder is nearing full, and your stomach is grumbling, where’s the best place to stop? Well, if you’re in Texas, Alabama, Georgia or Florida, it’s going to be at the beloved Buc-ee’s, of course.

The cartoon beaver, the smiling mascot of Buc-ees, has welcomed road-trippers and Texas shoppers since 1982 at its 41 locations. Two locations have broken two world records: the world’s largest gas station and the world’s longest car wash.

Inside the store, you’ll find some of the nicest roadside bathrooms (they’ve been voted the best bathrooms in the nation!), a freshly-made beef jerky bar, homemade fudge, and so much more. While you visit, you just may be lucky enough to see Buc-ee himself and buy a T-shirt with his face on it… or a swimsuit?

If you’ve driven past Buc-ee’s and never stopped, you’re going to have to change that. The cheerful, smiling rodent is worth a stop (and so is that jerky).

Are these related to Stuckeys? I miss them as fast fuel, food and rest stops.

The new Tennessee Buc-ees locations will be Exit 407 on I-40, near Sevierville, and the Genesis Road Exit 320, in Crossville. The Crossville location is well under construction, not sure of the opening date. The Sevierville Buc-ees will be the largest, to date, in the country. Again, not sure of the planned opening date.

The pay and benefits are amazing.

Our people in League City, Tx. Introduced us to the Texas City Buc-ees.
Now we never drive past one. New ones in SC and FL are great. I highly recommend the Beaver Nuggets.

I’ve been to those four states and never seen a Buc ees. Fairly new? It’s probably been 8 years since i drove in those States

Been through most of those states in the past year and don’t remember seeing one. This article is the first I have heard of them.

Will be at Buc-Kee’s tomorrow morning for refueling before our run to Florida. Buc-kee’s presence had made the two major gas stations before it on I-10, lower their high prices to compete. Do not go there on Sunday, unless very early, Saturday is bad also.

We’ve made several stops at Buc-ee’s on our way down to Houston. We love that place! Buc-ee’s, not Houston – ha. But, one time, during the summer and on a Sunday, I foolishly pulled in and it took almost a half-hour to get back out, and I never stopped. Didn’t buy fuel, didn’t park, didn’t do anything but cuss at the HUGE traffic jam on-premise. We were towing our 30′ trailer and weaving in and out of the traffic just trying to get back to an exit was a nightmare. This didn’t kill my love for Buc-ee’s, but I’ll always be more attentive to the traffic situation before turning in.

I would make to additions two Buc-ee’s, an overnight RV park out back, and a line of straight in and out gas/diesel pumps for RV’s.

We live in Texas and have stopped to buy gas many times. What we love is they do not allow truckers at the gas pumps , we have to get diesel, so it’s nice not to have to step in grease and track it back in. They also have very nice dog areas with poop bag stations. It’s definitely a place to get it all.

A real American success story. Private ownership and control instead of a board of directors and hired CEO trying to scrape an extra nickel out of every sale, and every employee.
I’ve heard of Bucee’s but never been in one, but I do remember Ipana toothpaste.

We stop at the one in Daytona on the way to visit our daughter and fam. My first time in …”WOW!”. Same with dh. And yes, their brisket is amazing!

My granddaughter’s favorite place for brisket. In Florida (St. Augustine) they have 125 gas pumps. Often most or all are busy! We have their camping chairs! Fun place to stop.
