Actually, the last brisket sandwich I got at  a Buc-ee's was more fat than meat. I wouldn't risk anything to get another one.

Yeah another farker mentioned this is more for using a bathroom than catching the Rona.  It just also happens that it matches the general virus mindset as well.

Buccees barbecue is about the same quality as school cafeteria food. They do have some really tasty jerkies and snacks though, but fighting through the massive lines sucks.

Within 2 miles of any Buccees in texas will be barbecue of exponentially better quality.

Any time we enter a Buc-ees (on road trips, none around here) we always have brisket sandwiches and a box of fudge on exit.

Who cares? Most restaurants are open for take-out. The reality is, shelter in place is simply not going to work in the US. Better to make mandatory PPE and put forth social distancing and safety guidelines for all businesses who wish to be open to the public

It's really coming down to choosing to bankrupt our economy, destroy the majority fo small business, create millions of newly homeless and enter a depression we might never recover from or get a freaking grip and find solutions that will actually work in the United States of Willfully Ignorant farkwads

The fact that it's almost June and we still don't have ready access to testing says everything anyone needs to know about America and how great and powerful it is

I live in Toronto, and even though Canada is not doing nearly as badly as the US I don't think we're actually doing a very good job taking this seriously up here either. Had to go buy cat food today, so many people without masks or anything on, clearly going for walks with their friends, employees in take out restaurants or not masked or gloved.

everyone talks a good talk up here, but a lot of people are bending or breaking the rules. Nobody's really saying anything about it.

Is the US really doing any worse at all than Canada? Or is NYC area, which accounts for nearly half the US stats just doing terribly and the rest of the US looking better than Canada and much more like Germany?

You can make that argument. But if Canada takes Quebec out of the equation, we are doing a lot better too. You can't just chop up the epicenters and focus on what's left.

but it is a very fair point that national level statistics are in many ways not very informative because a lot of this is regional, both MD infection rates and and how well people are doing at preventing the rise in infections .

All brisket is 75% fat for fat people.  I've only ordered it once and did not eat it.

One of the very last places I stopped on my way out of Texas was a Buc-ees and honestly their bathrooms are a goddamn magical place. You shiat in the height of opulence and comfort there. Genuinely one of the few things I miss about the state.

Maybe not brisket, but I will for their venison sticks.

I'd rather eat mom and pop texmex just about anywhere in Texas than bbq at some franchised shiathole.

Difficulty: pugging out on wings at Pluckers is always fun. Drunken fun but still fun.

Properly prepared brisket should have little to no fat on it. Wherever you ordered yours from didn't know how to cook it.

Yes. Pity the St Lawrence valley is packed with elitist xenophobes. The province as a whole is pretty cool. Imean I live in Alberta - its a pity a bunch of coke head fort mac workers and oil exec High River folk have such sway. 

If Alberta and Quebec have anything in common its likely that we ALL (most)agree our premier is trash person trumpeting sermons from atop a hot pile of garbage.

The reality is: it's not working because the GOP is full of intransigent assholes who care about what they think "the economy" more than actual people (aka real consumers).

It would work if the Republicans hadn't farked up (in approximate and incomplete order):

1. Accepting and putting in place precautions from the beginning.
2. Using the time that bought us to ramp up PPE production
3. Also going all in on investigating therapeutics and building up vaccine capabilities (not quackery)
4. Using the fact that money is cheap (interest rates near 0) to pump a shiat ton of money into the economy by putting it directly in consumer hands.

I'm not going to "concede" that it won't work. I will concede that every death for a while now is blood in their hands. I will keep pushing for the right thing even if herderpers oppose it at every turn.

Sausage sandwich with pickles and onions, with a hazelnut coffee. Their jerky bar is also pretty good. Roasted nuts too.

Otherwise, Buc-ee's is great for kitsch and pee breaks. Something to look forward to when I'm making the drive between San Antonio and Dallas.

Closest Buc-ee's is 10 miles
Still ate the brisket

Yeah, I've made better brisket on my patio.  And I don't like their sweet sauce, but it's better than some.  But I go there for the snacks, drinks and restrooms.
 
2020-05-18 12:44:56 PM

Wonder if there'll be toobing in New Braunfels/Gruene this summer.

Probably not, huh? *sigh*

/you stop at Buc-ee's on the way there for snacks and drinks, and if you forgot the sunscreen.
