Buc-ee's, the bigger-than-life (and getting bigger than that) chain of travel stops, just announced another north TX location (to go with Terrell and north Fort Worth): Ennis. It will be on I-45 (exit not stated) and have 86 gas pumps. ... nned-ennis

Others are coming to Denton, Melissa, and Royse City (on I-30, exit 79: ... 496cd.html )

This is a fascinating place, lots of gas pumps and the large and very clean restrooms are very welcome. However, for me it is a huge collection of inedible junk food.

Just stopped there yesterday on the way back from Austin. I dig it, even though it's incredibly hectic, plus my son loves spotting the Buc-ee's signs in the miles leading up to it.

I like Slovacek's in West a little better, though. Smaller and more dense product placement, so you don't have people flying around in all directions.

I've only ever been to the Buc-ee's in Luling... it's the designated meeting and consolidation spot for us when traveling between CenTx and the Golden Crescent. I love the place and am fascinated by the retail extravaganza. The novelty candy selection is surprising -- they have horehound candy my mom likes, much better than what Cracker Barrel sells but not as good as she can get in Indiana. I don't remember ever buying anything else at Buc-ee's, maybe a soft taco (fresh!).

There's a convenience/grocery in Cuero that has best kolaches!

I've been to both the Terrell and north Fort Worth locations. The size and scale are just amazing. Tons of folk art and country-style tchotchkes. If I had a house, I probably wouldn't mind having one of their outdoor grills. I bet the north Fort Worth store does a ton of business on TMS race weekends. I ended up with beaver nuggets from the Terrell store. If I'd had more time and $$$, they probably could have gotten me for more than that. I saw a guy working on cleaning the bathrooms at one of them; I asked him was that all he did was keep the bathrooms clean. He said no, but almost all ;)
