This is not news to us that we have the best gas station in America right here in Texas. In fact, quite a few of the gas stations that we see on Texas road trips are among the best in the country, including Buc-ee's and the Quik Trip. And you can buy just about anything there.
More people than ever before will be hitting the road for this 4th of July weekend, and nobody wants it to be a boring trip. Beef jerky, kolaches, and fountain drinks with that soft round ice can make any trip better, and we feel compelled to give some love to the travel stops that make us happy.
My family got hooked two years ago. We make quite a few trips to Austin and on one occasion we made a stop in Madisonville at a newly built convenience store...well, calling Buc-ee's a convenience store is like calling Lake Sam Rayburn a stock tank.
