The wait is over.

Alabama’s 2nd Buc-ee’s opened this morning in Leeds, Alabama at 6900 Buc-ee’s Boulevard. 

This place is as big as Texas, and full of superlatives.

According to the legendary travel center from the Lone Star State, Buc-ees is home to the world’s cleanest bathrooms, freshest food and friendliest beaver.

How big do you say?

 Here are the numbers: 

  • 53,250 square feet
  • 120 gas fueling positions

  • Buc-ee’s favorites including Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries will all be available as well.
  • 200 new, permanent, full-time jobs

My personal favorite attraction – the World Famous Jerky Wall.

Bham Now’s November Preview

We knew this place was going to be huge and popular since Bham Now producers Chaise Sanders and Jacob Blakenship gave us all a sneak peek of the store back in November, thanks to Stewart Perry’s Senior Project Manager Eddie Cassell.
