It's crazy to think that a gas station is a required visit during a vacation or a road trip. But that's how Texans feel about Buc-ee's. Some of it is the pride that it is a Texas based and Texas owned company. Most of it is just the experience of making a stop there. From gifts to home decor to great food, it's a fun stop for anyone. We in East Texas were very happy that a Buc-ee's was built close to us in Terrell, but many East Texans would love to have one in their hometown. We put together a wishlist of some great locations Buc-ee's could build in East Texas.

It would be cool to think that a Buc-ee's could be within a 30 minute drive from your house. It would be easy to pick up the newest shirt and restock the Beaver Nuggets supply. It would be easy to pick up a chopped beef or pulled pork sandwich for lunch. It would almost be like opening up TikTok and losing 30-45 minutes of your day looking around the store all because you just needed some gas.

Yeah, Buc-ee's would be great in East Texas.

The rumors of a Buc-ee's coming to East Texas have been around for years, especially in the Lindale area. Buc-ee's would be great at just about any other major stop along I-20 in say Canton or Longview or Marshall, too. There are even some places off the main highway that would be great for a Buc-ee's.

We decided to search out some great locations for a Buc-ee's in East Texas. Those locations could be along the two interstate highways that run through our area. The location could be a little alcove in one of our great small towns. These locations are most likely not a place that Buc-ee's would build at. This is us just thinking "Dude, this would be a cool place for a Buc-ee's." Something you probably have done on your drive home from work.

East Texas' Top 16 Craziest, Busiest, Hardest-to-Park-in Parking Lots

This doesn't mean the business is bad. In fact, usually it's the contrary. I'll park four blocks away from Stanley's and brave being run over by an ambulance on Beckham Avenue for a Mother Clucker, all while wondering to myself "how in the hell did this wild-ass intersection even come into existence?" every week.
