Well, not exactly.
Maurice Chammah, a writer for investigative news site The Marshall Project, was perplexed to find what appeared to be a counterfeit Buc-ee's while in Amman, Jordan. He tweeted a photo of a sign bearing the chain's name along with its famous beaver mascot. Emily Chammah, who took the photo, said the Arabic words along the bottom of the sign read "market," "coffee" and "snacks."

I was driving on a highway north of Amman, Jordan, and found a...Buc-ee's. Or at least, a place claiming to be Buc-ee's.
I have so many questions.

Naturally, Twitter users acquainted with Buc-ee's had plenty of quips about the the unofficial location far from home.
I will go back and report! But it did not look big enough to have huge ones.— Maurice Chammah (@MauriceChammah) May 29, 2019
