It’s more than a convenience store and it’s more than a gas station. The only way to describe it is by its name—Buc-ee’s. If you haven’t heard yet, your soon-to-be favorite pit stop is coming to Leeds by January 2021. Today, we’ve got a sneak peek of what to expect.

This morning, we took a tour of the 54,000 square foot Buc-ee’s with Stewart Perry’s Senior Project Manager Eddie Cassell, and the one word I would use to describe it is MASSIVE. Construction officially started in November and the place is coming along pretty quickly.

Right now, the closest Buc-ee’s to Birmingham is the Robertsdale location going towards the beach. This one in Leeds will look almost identical—just a lot closer to home.

What makes Buc-ee’s Buc-ee’s?

Besides the fact that you’ll probably always be able to find an available pump for gas, this convenience store offers some things you probably wouldn’t expect like:

A full kitchen that’ll serve food around the clock

The cleanest bathrooms on your road trip

Okay. Hear me out on this one. Maybe it’s just me, but a clean bathroom makes a big difference. The last thing you want to deal with while driving is having to figure out where to stop to use the restroom.

Buc-ee’s has large restrooms with a full-time concierge to make sure they’re nice and tidy when you need them. After all, pit stops should be enjoyable.

Let’s not forget features like:

  • A section dedicated to hunting and fishing gear
  • A section full of home decor
  • Buc-ee’s apparel + toys
  • A beef jerky wall with every flavor you could think of
  • Coffee station with every cream or topping you could wish for
