Good 'ol Buc-ee's. Most of us in East Texas have been to one and have probably done it on multiple occasions. It's a fun pit stop on any road trip full of food, t-shirts and visiting a bathroom you can dine in. In some ways, us Buc-ee's veterans can take our shopping experience for granted. So it's fun when we can introduce someone to the fun of Buc-ee's whose never been. A first timer to Buc-ee's got on a Buc-ee's Facebook group to get some suggestions for what to buy during her first trip. Buc-ee's fans did not disappoint.

Buc-ee's in Terrell

Me and my girlfriend love stopping at Buc-ee's. There has been a couple of Saturdays where we would drive to Terrell for the sole purpose of going to Buc-ee's. We love the t-shirts, the barbecue sandwiches, the Beaver Nuggets and she loves browsing the home goods section to find something for whatever season it is. While she's doing that, I'll browse the new t-shirts to hopefully add to the collection and the other Buc-ee's merch. Buc-ee's is a fun adventure for both of us.
