Same owner, they built a wholesale plant and are expanding all over. He's pretty old, maybe full sending it to leave a family legacy

This is awesome! Can't get good cracklin here in Houston. Having one in Katy will be a game changer. Maybe I can talk them into carrying City Bar Bloody Mary Mix.

I guess if Buc-ee’s can leave Texas, Best Stop can leave Louisiana.

Now if they would open a Billy’s near Beaumont……

They have a phenomenal product, but their location in Scott is hidden compared to Don's, Billy's, and Kartchners. So I am really happy for their expansion into Texas.

They are about to open a location off of i-49 near Carencro as well.

They are my favorite place for boudin, so I'm happy to see this!

I just bought 25 pounds of.boudin and stuff pork chops on my way home from Florida. It's an annual tradition. I noticed a franchise sign out front a couple years ago. My wife and I talked about opening one in the Cypress area. Excited to see one coming to the area. I know they will do well.

I grew up down the road from best stop. Moved to houston 20+ years ago and EVERY trip back home required a stop off to stock up on the boudin…

I Moved back to Lafayette a few months ago, and NOW they decide to expand to Texas?!?!

Whatever.

We went to the one in Scott last summer because Billy's was closed. They can't hold a candle to what Billy's puts out, I wasn't impressed at all.

Convenient store/cajun meat market type deal, honestly I don't even know if the shop in Scott even has gas pumps. I don't go for gas, I go for stocking up like everyone else in the thread lol. They've got several freezers of product you can buy as well as a hot bar with everything ready to order

I always go to Billy’s on the other side of I-10 from Best Stop. It comes down to personal preference. I know that Billy’s is almost a hole in the wall location but it seems to pack in a crowd of people for their Cajun delicacies and essentially all “to go”. You can get their food items hot and ready to eat or most of them come frozen to take home.

I think Best Stop is a bit larger but not by much.

The restrooms at Buc-ee’s are about the same size.

Thanks good info. I will give them a try when they open the Katy store.

Is this Billy’s you speak of coming to Texas too? If not then I will try them if I ever have the misfortune of needing to go to Louisiana

This makes me so happy, I love love love their smoked boudin!

I tend to agree that billys is a bit better, but its all so good that I usually go to both and get 5-10lbs from each when im passing through Scott

For anyone that hasnt tried Best Stop Boudin and wants to before they arrive here - the restaurant BB's Tex-Orleans Kitchen ONLY uses Best Stop boudin at their locations - the boudin flautas are AMAZING.

It’s funny that you say that because about 5 years ago we stopped at Best Stop on the way home from Florida. I bought about 20 lbs to bring home and it was nasty. Threw it out. It was almost like they had a disgruntled employee make it. There was no way that they built they’re reputation and following with what I bought.
