NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Texans have touted the excellence of mega travel stop Buc-ee’s for years, and now the nation’s premier foodie publication agrees.

Bon Appétit Magazine deems the chain of rest stops the best in America.

Here are some of the reasons why the magazine chose it as number one: ample gas pumps, clean restrooms, the lack of a checkout line and “wide range of offerings specifically targeted to Texas tastes.” That includes smoked and dried meats, beaver nuggets, handmade fudge and brisket breakfast tacos.

Buc-ee’s started in the 1980s just south of Houston in Lake Jackson.

It now has 37 locations including two here in North Texas.
