When you're on the road, the inside of a gas station is just as important as the gas itself. With that in mind, Denton has a few remarkable options. Voted the Best Beer Store in Denton for three years straight, Denton’s Midway Mart is close to downtown Denton and offers great beer and snacks as well as a glimpse into a business that has been serving Denton for well over two decades. We’d also be remiss not to mention a stop by Buc-ee’s. This gas station turned shopping mall provides all the things you’re looking for in a road trip gas station: clean restrooms, gas, and an endless supply of merchandise sporting a beaver wearing a hat. And if you’re looking for the most environmentally ethical of gas station options in Denton, you’ll find a Sunoco right off the downtown Square.
