  1. They’re certainly losing the battle, that would be at least the second Buc-ee’s within 90 minutes of Nashville (first one being in Athens, AL).

    That tweet does remind me of a tweet I saw about a year and a half ago, “Driving through Texas just reminds me that if there ever was a Fallout style post apocalyptic America, there would be an entire faction dedicated to the worship of this f***ing beaver.”

    1. There is one starting to be built in Murfreesboro, 34 mile from Nashville…. and 8 miles away from yours truly.

      I will send reports of the invasion once completed

      1. I think “invasion” could well describe the experience, especially at a newly opened Texas FOB, er, Buc-ee’s. When the one in north Alabama opened, the traffic was backed up out onto the interstate and there were tales of it taking 30-60 minutes for people just to get out of there. And if it is a major travel weekend (Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, etc.) then just consider the area a no-go zone.

        I’ve been, I’ve had the brisket (it’s okay) and the Beaver Nuggets (they’re pretty much just a different take on the Corn Pops cereal of my youth), I’m good. The crowds, even on non-peak days are enough for me to just go “I’ve gotta get the hell out of here and I’ve gotta get out now.”

    1. A big service station with hot food. As best I can tell. People think they are the bees’ knees. I’ve never been to one and don’t plan to, unless I absolutely need to refuel.

      1. The food’s OK; most of the place is taken up by merchandise made of fine Chinesium. The restrooms, on the other hand, are spotless and large.

        BUT the parking lots are madhouses. I swear people forget there are cars around when they’re walking around them, and will step right in front of an oncoming car.

  2. Think Racetrac/QT on steroids lovechild with Walmart and a side of Midway at the State Fair.

    1. As Gary P. Nunn said
      “We’re taking Texas to the country
      Were taking Buc-ee’s to the world.”
      Deal with it 😎

  3. I stopped at the one in SC on my way up north and back. It was pretty good. The gas was cheap and the bathrooms were spotless. I got a Bucky coffee mug and a Gadsden Flag tumbler full of Dr. Pepper.

    I can honestly say the brisket sandwich was delicious (if overpriced) and the beaver chips are downright addictive. They built one in Daytona Beach just off I-95 and I may need to make a pilgrimage to get more snacks.

  4. The new one near Pigeon Forge is the largest buc-ee’s in the world. Tennessee is already lost.

  5. The PNW has been spared so far, but when In N Out Burger opened up here there traffic jams of homesick Californians. I can’t understand the hype, Burgerville is better, and local.
