Is gas station food getting better in Colorado? Or am I becoming more trashy?

It seems like the quality of gas station food has been improving greatly for the past decade. I wake up for work around 3:00 a.m. and I typically do not have time to make myself breakfast in the morning.

On the mornings that I make breakfast for myself, I feel like a rockstar.

Quick Critique of Buc-ee's

I did enjoy the food at Buc-ee's, but I was pretty disappointed with their breakfast burrito. The burrito cost me double what a breakfast burrito would have cost me at the Maverik by my home.

The breakfast burrito was half the size and lacking in flavor.

I also tried the Beaver Nuggets and the brisket sandwich. I will admit, I am not much of a BBQ person. But goodness gracious that brisket sandwich was amazing.

Most items on the list won't last long, but a couple you can keep in the cupboard for a substantial amount time; break them out for guest: "Oh, yes, we got this at Buc-ee's, right after they opened. Well, it wasn't RIGHT after they opened, that would have been crazy."
