If you’ve driven down eastbound I-10 at any point in the past few months, you’ve likely seen the massive construction just past Loxley.
The construction is visible from about a mile away. It’s the future home of the first Buc-ee’s to be built and opened outside of Texas. Buc-ee’s is a massive gas station with an even bigger following.
“What’s the big deal you know? It’s a gas station, everybody has to have gas you know, you might buy a snack, and then we got there and I was just overwhelmed,” said Barbara Wittner, a Mobile resident who has visited Buc-ee’s.
If you have heard anything about the gas station chain, you have probably heard it’s not like any other gas station. But what exactly does that mean?
Thursday Night at 10: News 5 went all the way to Texas to take you inside a Buc-ee’s to show you what to expect when it finally opens here in 2019.
