Now, a new location going up in Luling will help Texas reclaim the biggest beaver title. The 75,000 square-foot Buc-ee's will be built next to the current Luling store on I-10, east of San Antonio. It opened back in 2003.
"Twenty years ago, Beaver and Don had the gumption to change the industry by building the first Buc-ee's Family Travel Center in Luling," said Stan Beard of Buc-ee's. "Since that time, Buc-ee's has grown into an iconic Texas brand that now shares our Texas pride with new stores throughout the Southeast and West. We are humbled to have this opportunity to strengthen our roots in Texas and will continue to exceed our customers' expectations every chance we get."
Buc-ee's said the new Luling location will feature 120 fueling positions, plenty of clean bathrooms, along with barbecue, beef jerky, homemade fudge and more. A lot more.
Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin sometime in the fall.
For now, New Braunfels will still own bragging rights to the world's largest Buc-ee's with its 66,335 square-foot store.
Buc-ee's also lays claim to the world's longest car wash -- 225 feet -- at its Katy travel center off I-10.
