Buc-ee’s will be building a new location in Amarillo, Texas on the southeast corner of the Juett Attebury road and Interstate 40 highway. The purchase of the land was delayed due to a dispute between neighboring Speedco Truck Lube and Tires and the owner of the undeveloped land.
The Buc-ee’s will also be next to an Amarillo Travel Information Center and across the Interstate to Flying J Travel Center 723. Construction is expected to begin in 2023.
