New Buc-ee’s Is Being Built On This Site In Amarillo

Buc-ee’s is building a new location in Amarillo, Texas, on the southeast corner of Juett Attebury Road and Interstate 40. Construction began in October 2023 and is expected to be complete by February 2025. The purchase of the land faced delays due to a dispute between neighboring Speedco Truck Lube and Tires and the owner of the undeveloped land. This new Buc-ee’s will be situated next to an Amarillo Travel Information Center and across the interstate from the Flying J Travel Center 723.
