    What if Doc is wrong?

    Buc-ee's! These guys are doing it right. They need to go public.

    • The piece didn't do this gold mine justice. The stores are strategically placed along major highways in state and have become 'the' place to take a break on road trips - at least for the kids.

      The store in the video is half-way between Houston & Dallas. We had a trip to Dallas a couple of weeks ago and it was planned before we left the driveway to stop at Buccees for a break & snack. With the kids preoccupied w/ Ipads I kept quiet as we passed by on the way to Dallas. Darn near riot in the car 20 miles down the road when they realized I didn't stop. Of course we stopped on the way back. Returning Sunday evening, it was like Xmas shopping at the mall. Lines at the gas pumps, shoulder to shoulder in the store. But, bathrooms perfectly clean and store appropiately staffed. This guy created a monster.

      • Safe Harbor, We stopped at the one in Luling on the way back from Houston. I was simply blown away. The place was packed, it was a madhouse! We were on a spring break trip. Some friends of ours recommended it. We should have stopped at it on the way to Houston but we were in a hurry as the rain was beginning to pound. Terrible rain btw.....the worst I've ever driven in. Thank god the rain stopped by the end of our trip.

        I bought some spicy/sweet beef jerky and some dried mango at Buc-ee's. Both are very tasty.

        If this company goes public and spreads around the country.....well, you get the picture. It sure is a huge upgrade from the old Stuckey's of yesteryear lol.
