* [[https://www.buc-ees.com/index.php Buc-ee's]], a chain of ''freakishly'' large gas stations with convenience stores at least as big as most standard supermarkets, equally as impressive souvenir and outdoor supply sections, and an array of freshly cooked food that rivals most shopping mall food courts. Most if not all of them do not allow 18-wheelers on the premises. The largest one (in New Braunfels) is the largest convenience store in the world, ringing in at ''68,000'' square feet, with 83 toilets and ''120 fuel pumps''. They advertise aggressively along the interstate highways with signature black billboards that can show up over 100 miles away from the nearest location; they have even popped up other states (one such billboard along I-10 in Florida advertising the Baytown location states "737 miles - you can hold it!")
