That's the problem, you are treating it like a gas station, not an destination. Silly.Last few times I've stopped it's been for gas and bathrooms. Used to get a sandwich but I pass now at $8.49+. I usually don't mind a few extra minutes for the cheaper gas and huge bathrooms. Rare that I buy more than gas and a drink or coffee.
It's the crack in them beaver nuggetsI went to Buc-ee’s this evening while traveling. I bought the turkey BBQ sandwich, and IMO, it’s just as good as the brisket sandwich.
There’s something that happens to people in Buc-ee’s though. They completely lose their sense of spacial awareness. Yes, it’s crowded, but people make it seem way more crowded than it is by walking in groups of 6 in a straight, horizontal line, or completely blocking an isle with zero courtesy to others. This has seemed to be the case in every Buc-ee’s I have entered.
Brisket is great. I have been to both locations in Alabama(Athens and Leeds) and the sliced brisket sandwiches don’t disappoint. Also you can a get name brand items such as Oakley, Costa, Yeti and many more items. The beef jerky selection is the largest I have ever seen of any store. You can get chicken sandwiches, chopped or sliced brisket, pulled pork and more. It’s a one stop shop for everything if you’re traveling.OK, brisket is a major selling point if it's good.
It's not on that list, but there's one coming to Louisiana about a 1/2 mile from my house. I used to like those places, but I don't want one that close.
Takes me usually 10-15 minutes to get a pound of sliced brisket. Only takes 15 minutes if they are having to go get more. I've been to 3 (Crossville, Athens, AL and Calhoun, GA). In all 3, I've pretty much been in ands out as quickly as possible.Yeah, it is not a quick stop
Also this time of year. Leaves turning in Smokies? Buc-ees is still a tourist attraction for a lot of people.I was traveling by the Sevierville on Sunday and decided to buy gas there. I think you want to avoid that one on weekends. It hasn't been bad when I've been by there on weekdays.
