Best Gas Station in Illinois Isn’t Buc-ee’s, But New Huge Rival?
I've traveled so much in my life I believe I can now maybe qualify as a connoisseur of gas stations. So, when there's a claim that the best gas station in Illinois isn't Buc-ee's, it grabs my undivided attention. Let's explore the possibility and see if this claim might have some merit.
I found this interesting Illinois gas station tour on YouTube which described their petroleum adventure like this:
Get ready to fuel up and unwind like never before at Wally's, the latest contender in the world of colossal gas stations! In this exciting video, we take you on a virtual tour of Wally's Mega Gas Station located in Pontiac, Illinois, the new fierce competitor to the renowned southern giant, Buc-ee's.
It is a huge facility. Wow.
When you pull up to the main building, you see the massiveness of it all. I wonder why they didn't call themselves Wally World? (Asking for a friend)
I was all prepared to blow off this claim of a Buc-ee's rival in Illinois until I found out they have a BBQ grill inside. You had me at hello.
As if that weren't already enough, there's a coffee shop (with jerky) inside, too. Coffee and jerky together just isn't playing fair.
Have you been through Pontiac, Illinois where Wally's is located? Do you think it's really a rival to the current reigning gas station king? This gas station battle could get interesting quick.
