The number one grocery store in the Lone Star state  should come as no surprise -- unfortunately has yet to make it to El Paso, Texas. It is super popular -- everyone loves it!

The number one grocery store in Texas is H-E-B. See, it's not surprising right?

I've never even been to an HEB but just hearing how passionate some people are, especially about these buttery tortillas (and the candle that they created!) I hear so much about, makes me upset too at the fact that El Paso doesn't have an HEB!


According to HEB themselves, there are over 400 HEB's across Texas and Mexico; and that doesn't sound right!

You're telling me that there are over 400 HEB's and not a single one is in El Paso?! El Pasoans are yearning- they're pleading to the HEB Gods that one day we may also be able to rejoice in their heavenly goodness.

About a year ago, El Paso's very own TMZ shared an image from one El Pasoan who got through to HEB to ask what does the 915 have to do to get a darn HEB here!

Oh, do you hear us HEB? Do you? I don't like HEB's response. It feels like they're just stringing us along!

I feel like I've seen this response before, whether it was from ToDoElPaso, or from the Facebook page "Bring HEB to El Paso"- we've been asking for awhile now- but no luck so far.

What is HEB trying to hide?! Why is the rest of Texas gatekeeping HEB from El Paso?  We may never get the answer- for now, all we can hope for is that someone travels to an HEB and brings back those tortillas to sell on Facebook Marketplace. Now, who do we talk to about getting a Buc-ee's in El Paso?!

Texas - Do You Agree With This Ranking Of Buc-ee's Snacks People Should Try?

So many in the state of Texas have a favorite snack from Buc-ee's, but how could they be ranked? We have one individual's opinion to discuss.
