Sausage. Barbecue. Jerky. Buc-ee's is a carnivore's dream.

There is literally something for everyone:

  • Carnivores will find jerky, barbecue, and big sandwiches.
  • Vegetarians and vegans can get fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and salads.
  • Chocoholics and people with a sweet tooth can get their sugar fix.

Top 8 greatest Buc-ee's menu items

While we consumed our fill of Buc-ee's vast selection, there were eight items that came out on top. Some are tried and true, but others are new:

  • Pastrami Ruben: Generous helpings of juicy pastrami are wedged in between a toasted pretzel bun, and dressed with Pepper Jack cheese, savory bacon, hand crafted mustard, sauerkraut and french fried onion chips. We were sad when it was gone.
  • Chicken Fajita Mammoth Taco: Nothing can prepare you for how big this is. Grilled chicken fajitas, cheese, rice, beans and pico de gallo collide for a Tex-Mex celebration in your mouth. Delicious.
  • Texas Cheesesteak Burrito: It's the Philly favorite, wrapped in a tortilla with two types of beef. Tender beef fajitas and roast beef are dressed with grilled onions, peppers, Monterey Jack cheese, and an out of this world jalapeno mayonnaise.
  • Fish Taco: A real sea change for gas station food! Cod, shredded cabbage, creamy avocado cilantro sauce, pico de gallo, and a lime wedge. So good.
  • The Texan Hot Dog: This one comes with this caveat--it's good, but not good to eat in a moving vehicle. This is a juicy hot dog with a Frito Pie dumped on top. Very messy, but oh so good.
  • Beaver Nuggets: They are a little like Kellogg's Corn Pops. A very addicting, sweet and crunchy dessert.
  • Fudge: Buc-ee's has some of the best fudge in Texas. This is a must buy for chocolate lovers.
  • Mint Chocolate Swirl Fudge: This is the original fudge's prettier brown and green sister! Tastes like Andes mints!
