Buc-ee's History

Buc-ee’s was founded in 1982 by Don Waesek and Arch “Beaver” Alpin in Lake Jackson, Texas. The company operates a chain of convenience and fueling stores. The name is a combination of Alpin’s nickname and the name of his dog.

The company currently has 40 locations, most of them in Texas. The size of each location varies, but most have gas stations for large trucks and cars, but not for 18 wheelers. Many locations also offer car washes. The largest Buc-ee’s opened in 2012 and it features 120 fuel pumps, 83 restrooms, 31 cash registers, and 80 fountain drink dispensers. This location in New Braunfels also sells water gear and inner tubes for those enjoying the nearby Guadalupe River.

Buc-ee’s is perhaps best known for its entertaining billboards found on highways throughout Texas. Billboards with slogans such as “Ice, Beer, and Jerky, the 3 Food Groups” and “Don’t Pass Our Gas” are common.

It is very obvious that the ownership is not customer service friendly! They have taken the tech side of business I just had a bad experience in Melisa TX no phone number to be found to talk to someone that might care? Very sad really! The people they hire are like robots good luck guys even in technology there is a thing called reputation!

I went to your Buccees location in Wharton, Texas last week. I brought my teenaged child who suffers from severe anxiety.. We needed to use the restroom and pick up a drink. This place was so full of customers and the employees were doing a great job. It was obvious my daughter was having an anxiety attack. She was not in full blown panic mode but was very close. We were already in the door so we kept on to the bathroom. Several employees noticed something was off and stayed very close to us. Not uncomfortably close but close enough for me to notice. I felt very safe and I know the employees were looking out for everyone’s safety but I knew had I needed their help, they were footsteps away. We went to the restroom which was very clean, we grabbed a fountain drink, again the area was very clean. We paid for our sodas, the cashier was nice and friendly. The Wharton location is doing an amazing job! Thank you!

We have been loyal customers during our travels across Texas. My family always stops at your Luling location when we travel up and down I10. Its a great place to grab a quick bite to eat. To our amazement the cooler with fresh salads, breakfast tacos, sandwiches etc. was completely empty on 6/18 and 6/21. The lady making tacos said you no longer will stock food in the cooler. Since space is minimal in the other cooler selection choices were basic. I was told you have to wait in line to order, then wait for something to be prepared.
Sadly, we went down the street and drove through a fast food place. It’s not convenient to find parking, wait in line to order, the wait for food to be prepared. I hope this was just an anomaly for a few days at this specific location.

My entire family will be greatly saddened it this is a new policy across the state.

This is a sorry place to work for! Last night my son, who is autistic, got fired from the Katy, TX location for theft. He supposedly stole $.52 worth of jalapeno peppers. But he had another employee make the food for him, as they are supposed to, and that guy put peppers on the food. My son had already paid for the sandwich but then went back up to the register and paid a separate time for the peppers. Some think-their-in-the-know snitch told an assistant manager that he had not paid for the food. They called him in and terminated him. He is steadily telling the idiot that he went up a second time and paid for the peppers! They escort my autistic son out like a criminal and fire him for theft. We pull up his band statement and my wife goes back up with my son at 5:30 to speak to the manager. This guy was a real piece of work. My wife is guardian for my son but before she can say anything he throws his hand into her face and tells her he will not be speaking to her on this matter! Damn straight buddy, it will be someone more powerful than my wife! F**k you!!!

I have left several messages for the Temple location for an explanation but have not received one. My daughter went to the Temple location Jan 1 about 4:30 pm. She needed gas and all the front pumps were full so she pulled up to one in the back section. It was cold and windy, she pays cash for her gas so she went to the register to pay and the girl told her that those pumps are prepay only. She said ok I’m giving you $20 cash for my gas. The cashiers response was, no it only takes cards and she wouldn’t take her cash. The girl was somewhat rude and acted like everyone should know that. My daughter walked back to her car looked for signage about what the girl told her and did not see any. She got back into her car and drive around and waited for a pump to open up. After several minutes she found one. She then went back in and paid for her gas. My daughter shouldn’t have to feel humiliated or embarrassed to pay for gas, especially since there (to her observation) was no signage stating that this pump is credit/debit card only. I drive about 30k miles a year and used to stop at your locations. After what happened to my daughter and the lack of response from my previous email concerns I have no desire to stop. It probably doesn’t really make a difference to your bottom line but I still wanted to express my concern about the way my daughter was mistreated. Repectfully.

I bought at 34 oz mug at the Buc-ee’s in Bastrop on 11/28/2018 and the handle was already broken in the package. Looks defective to me. Wasted $4.99 + tax. Not a lot of money but very disappointed in the cheaply made product. Wonder how you can put your name on something like this.

We love your stores! We travel back and forth from Fort Worth to south Tx during hunting season and always stop at your Temple location. Lately at the Temple locale, the venison and pork sausage has been so salty we couldn’t eat it and returned it on the next trip with no hassle. The Fort Worth location is quite a ways for us but we decided to give it a try with the sausage. Perfect! I presume it is all made in the same locale but Temple seems to be getting the high sodium lot. Coincidence? Your thoughts?

Thanks for your super stores!

I called the corporate office and talked to Nicole about someone verifying employment for a Federal background check. Nicole is the most unprofessional person I have ever talked to. I guess Buc-ee’s will let employees disrespect people. This is not how y’all used to run your business. When I worked at Buc-ee’s 20 years ago we didn’t treat people like this.

Our credit card was cloned at the Buc-ee’s in Temple. This was a huge story in Austin news in 2015 before the chip reader and now I see that it is a CONTINUED PROBLEM and Buc-ee’s has no number to call to speak to a LIVE PERSON in Fraud or Corporate or even at the local level. Maybe I should contact that news station for a follow-up story as I see many many more people continue to have their credit cards scammed from Buc-ee’s LOCATIONS. ***Use cash only if you go there.*** We will not any longer. You may be big, but reputation is EVERYTHING in this industry and the state of Texas and soon enough this WILL effect you.

At your Terrell location, I took in my own cup and filled it with hot water. My husband picked up $9 worth of purchases. We were charged .99 for the hot water. The price on a fountain drink is .79 and that is in a store cup. I was appalled when the team leader told me that I was charged correctly. So….that is fine. I go past you twice a week and get fuel, drinks, snacks, bucee items and treats for grandchildren. I purchase items for myself, birthdays and Christmas for gifts. I get your jarred chow chow and jellies and my husband purchases beer and cool hunting gear and equipment that he finds at your store. No longer. No one has ever charged be for water in my own cup. That is ridiculous although it is your decision. Mine will be to never do business with you again. Also, I read about the veteran and I can say that is so very sad! I am just to lowly of a person I suppose to go where I believe water should be no charge in your own cup and mercy should be given to folks in times of distress. By the way, it isn’t the money. My husband and I have a combined income of $180,000 year. It is the principle.

My husband and I have been scam at the Temple and New Braunfels locations. Also, my co-worker has been scam at the New Braunfels location. You use your credit card at Buc-ee’s and within a week your account has been hit and money has been withdrawn. We used our card in the store and as credit (Mmmmm!!!). Cannot even call to let anyone in a high position know that this is going on. Buc-ee’s Corporate Office needs to look into this matter!!!! AND YES, WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES!!!

DEAR CEO: DON WASEK, FIRST OF ALL I WANT TO SAY HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR STORE, THIS EVENING I WAS A WITNESS TO A VERY DISTURBING INCIDENT THAT TOOK PLACE AT YOUR NEW BRAUNFELS STORE BY A ASST. MANAGER. THERE WAS A VETERAN A YOUNG VET, WHO HAD BEEN DISPLACED BY HURRICANE HARVEY ALONG WITH THREE OF HIS CHILDREN. THIS EVENING THE MAN WAS OUT AT THE VERY END OF YOUR PARKING LOT, STANDING NEXT TO HIS CAR, WITH A CHILD SLEEPING IN THE BACK AND HAD A SMALL SIGN ASKING FOR A FEW GALLONS OF GAS TO HELP GET HIM AND HIS FAMILY BACK TO HOUSTON. I WITNESSED YOUR ASSISTANT MANAGER ( old women) CALL SECURITY THROW THIS VERTERAN OFF BUCEES PROPERTY AND TOLD HIM HE WASNT GOING TO BE BEGGING ON BUC CEES PROPERTY, FIRST OF ALL THIS WASNT SOME WHINO DRUNK, THIS YOUNG MAN WAS DRESSED IN SLACKS WITH A POLO SHIRT ON. WAS NOT STANDING AT BUC CEES FRONT DOOR BUT OUT AT THE VERY FAR END OF THE PROPERTY WERE TRAFFIC WAS EXITING. WHAT I SAW AND WHAT I WITNESSED AND HEARD COME FROM THAT ASST. MANAGERS MOUTH AND YOUR SECURITY GUARD. MADE ME SICK TO MY STOMACH ALONG WITH THE OTHER 18 PEOPLE THAT WITNESSED THIS CRUEL ACT COMING FROM BUC EES, I AM DISGUSTED BEYOND BELIEF. I WILL NEVER EVER STOP AT THAT BUCEES TO FUEL ALL 5 OF MY COMPANY TRUCKS THERE AGAIN UNTIL I KNOW THAT ASST MANAGER HAS BEEN RE LEAVED OF HER DUTY. I DID CATCH UP WITH THIS MAN AT HEB GAS STATION. THIS MAN WAS IN TEARS, ONE BECAUSE HE HAD TO LOWER HIMSELF IN FRONT OF HIS CHILDREN TO ASK FOR A HAND OUT, THEN TO BE TREATED LIKE HE WAS SOME WHINO….BY A BUC CEES EMPLOYEE ??? OR IS THIS JUST CORPORATE GREED, AND ONLY THE ELITE OR FOLKS WITH MONEY ARE ALLOWED ON YOUR PROPERTY, AND THE REST OF THE UNFORTUNATE IN TEXAS CAN JUST GO AWAY OR GO ROT IN HELL? IS THIS BUC EES POLICY ? BECAUSE FROM WHAT I WITNESSED THIS EVENING AT 6PM WAS PRETTY CLOSE TO JUST THAT.

First off would like to say that I love your stores. But this morning had an experience at the Angleton location at the loop downtown that I was not comfortable with. I stop by there everyday for my coffee and snacks for work. This morning I stopped for coffee, gas and beer. My husband grabbed a six pack of bud light ice. One of the cans fell off the sleeve and busted open. As if that was not embarrassing enough. My husband went and got a single beer. The cashier told him that because he dropped it, that he would have to pay for the whole six pack and the single beer. The money wasn’t a problem. I was just upset at the fact that she made us feel like we did something so wrong that we would have to be punished for it. Maybe I am over reacting to the situation, but knowing that you could write off the six pack upset me. You see my husband was a night manager at a grocery store. My husband told me he went to the same store and the same thing happened to him with the six pack of bud light ice, one fell out of the sleeve, but he just got it anyway because it didn’t bust open, just dented.

This is by far the worst place to take your animal. I had my dog groomed over a week ago, I wish I had done my research prior to taking my baby to the Newnan GA petsmart. The groomers caused so much trauma to our Shih Tzu, he may never be the same. He was burned from the razor, they choked him which caused both blood vessel in his eyes, he is scared and not as active as he was before i took him there. One week later, no one from their corporate office had contacted me about my dog, no one cares for what they did to him. It’s now with my lawyer. Do your research.

are in need. The main income is the gun raffle of 130 guns. We do tickets sales at
Tractor Supply, Joe’s BBQ Restaurant, Citco Station and Garage Bar and Grill here in
Alvin. I purchase my gas, etc, at the Alvin location where there is a very good business.

Would it be possible for us to do a couple of gun raffle ticket sales at the Alvin
