“BBQ brisket/sausage good, service great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

I always stop at Buc-ees on my trips to Houston or Galvezton. In fact, I stop twice on the trip. If it is time to eat, I get a 1/4 lb of sliced brisket and sometimes 1/4 lb of sausage and a side of potato salad. Never any complaints . No matter how busy the store is, and it is always busy (like a mall at Christmas on the weekends) the service is great and the cashiers are efficient moving the line quickly. I have noticed long line for the women's rr so plan for that. Very clean store and certainly worth the stop no matter how crowded the parking lot is.

Awesome place - I wish there were more Buc-ee's locations closer to me. Every time I'm near Madisonville I stop there - love it!

“Worst experience ever!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Stopped at Bucee's yesterday. What a mistake. I waited 9 minutes in line to go to the bathroom. Then waited another 5 minutes in line to get to a couple of bakery items. Then had to wait ANOTHER 6 minutes to check out the bakery items , which were stale. DO NOT stop here unless you like to waste your time and money!

“Must stop at Buc-ee's!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is a huge store!! When we went it was spring break and it was crazy busy!! With that said...it was really clean! The bathrooms were really clean as was the store. If you get something to eat they have a self serve ordering system. You walk up to a terminal (which we didn't have to wait in a line) and scroll through menu items and choose what you want. You pay when you pick up the food when your number is called and during the wait time (which wasn't long) you can get a fountain drink and do some unique gift shopping! Buc-ee's apparel is pretty fun! Once you have all of your items you pay at the register which didn't have a very long line and was quick moving. On your way out don't forget to take a picture with the Buc-ee mascot! Oh and you can get gas here too! (the food was pretty good also...we had a couple of wraps and chicken fingers)

“Load up on Snacks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

We always stop here to go to restrooms and load up on take home snacks. Sometimes do a little gift shopping, lots of unique gift items. Don't really like the self serve ordering for food stuff and miss the tables and chairs to sit and enjoy food. I always get the banana pudding and coconut cream pie in a cup and take home to eat later.
