Living in the armpit of the world and getting something quick is almost a daily routine. IMO the best stores as far as cleanness, decent bathrooms for the ladies, stocked etc is Kent Kwik. Jack's convience stores have recently started popping up and they appear clean etc. we shall see how that holds out.

Stripes is ok but their bathrooms are pretty nasty. As crazy as it sounds the burritos are pretty good at most of them. 7-11s around here are filthy. I can't say I have ever been in a nice clean one. They re did them and they look ok on the outside but you can't place a tarp on $hit. At the end of the day it's still $hit.

I love me some Buccees!!!!! Mega convenience stores. Clean and clean bathrooms, decent grub, feeders, coolers, beer, ice,gas etc. If anyone knows a corporate guy tell em to build one between Hoedessa and Midland. "Build it and they will come".

On my way out to my place there is a c-store that opened a year or so ago in Desdemona. I think they call it Cactus Corner - intersection of 8 and 16. Pretty clean all around and nice folks. Easy in and out.

We have several good ones:
1. Pak-a-Sak: great selection of drinks and snacks
2. Toot and Totum: a close second because Pak-a-Sak has better ice
3. Allsups: Burritos...nuff said

Allsups in Graham TX, was in a bind and needed some corn and Wally was ridiculous in price for a 40# bag so bought 20 bags from Allsups. Got some beer and other staples and went to start loading it in the truck and the skinny ol gal from the register was outside loading the 50# bags. My wife was sitting in the truck with her mouth wide open.
I tipped the gal and placed a call to their corporate office the following Monday. Hope she got some recognition.
Oh and their burritos rock!

That Stripes (the biggest one) in Ozona has to be one of the most overused, beat to crap filling stations in the state, if not the country. Never rely on the men's room being working. Cross-country travelers + oil field..."gentlemen" grin (not to mention hunters) really do a number on a place.

Buc-ee's beats them all. They lure you in with cheap fuel and super clean restrooms because they know you're going to drop 20 bucks on junk food.


I took the road less traveled

Stopped at the TA in Sweetwater Texas to get some adult beverages. I went 16 times around the store looking for the beer fridge. A clerk finally asks what I am looking for and I tell her. She states "we don't sale any" WTH??!!! hammer

It's very surprising when I drive through there and don't see a cop in a speed trap or writing a ticket. I wonder how much of that city's budget comes from traffic enforcement.

A few years back, maybe 15 or so it was reported on WFAA 8 News in DFW that 3 cars pulled in $76K in tickets in a 6 month period if my memory serves me correctly. Was considered one of the highest generating towns in the state for its size.
