In fact, gun to the head, I'd say the only thing better than getting a Buc-ee's road trip stop, is witnessing others finding out about this giant piece of heaven for the first time... Your first time is always special.

It's like Cracker Barrel and Walmart had a babay that made a a litter of Pilot Stations and those grew up and married Texas. - Amberly
