If it's true, then terrific--but it can also be a headache. It's so funny but cool to see Buc-ees expanding. My husband was raised in the area where it started (near Lake Jackson south of Houston) and so it's kind of a local thing for us. The Luling store is crazy busy, almost to a point lately where we simply won't stop there when we are on our way to Houston--especially in the summertime.

It's true - gonna be at 306 & IH-35...I'm not that wild about it because that's a new shopping area setting up like The Forum, and this is gonna kick a LOT of traffic into that area that's gonna be trying to get in/out of an oversized gas station.

It's super busy, but it's also super efficient. Even when there are 200 people in the place, I've never had to wait very long for a food order or to check out. IMO, Buc-ee's is a marvel and the marketing of that Luling location is about as clever as it can be.

I swear they have everything but the kitchen sink in that store! It's a great place to visit if you are road-weary and need to wake up!

Gas station? yes

Truckstop? No, at least from what I remember during my stops there in the past.

I think that part of Buc-cee's success is because they don't cater exclusively (or perhaps at all) to truck drivers. The format of the place seems to be strictly catered for Houston <-> San Antonio travelers.

Oh, to be sure - they're VERY efficient! The Luling store would put WalMart, Home Depot, et al to shame in terms of their manning of registers, and getting customers in and out in a timely manner. And I think the sinks are in the building off to the right of the store, HCHRM....<G>
