NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas -- A new, super-service station a half hour northeast of San Antonio is making a national splash this week regarding its amenities. 

“It's not your run of the mill gas station," said Zach Hudgins, an employee at Buc-ee’s, a massive service station boasting of 60 gas pump stations and 83 restroom stalls. 

It was for the latter that travelers responding to a contest on a website for Cintas, a business supplier, took notice this week. 

The bathroom at the Buc-ee’s in New Braunfels was voted the best in the country, beating out restrooms at the Hollywood Bowl and even a swank Chicago Hotel. 

“I wasn't surprised. As soon as I heard I was like, 'Oh, yep, that's true!" exclaimed Cathy Frank, a traveler who spoke to KVUE -- KENS 5's sister station -- this week. 

Customers and employees alike hope the national recognition will bring more tourists to the New Braunfels area to see for themselves.
