Sadly not blessed with a sweet nickname like the "Disco Kroger" in Montrose, the behemoth at Buffalo Speedway and Westpark could nonetheless swallow that one for breakfast. This place is so big it deserves its own ZIP code, but the important thing about its size is it never feels crowded even if you're there right after Lakewood Church has just let out across 59. You could explore here for weeks and never even come across the aisles of organic products tucked behind the produce, but luckily the beer and wine island is located square in the middle of the store and thus very, very hard to miss. The store also has plenty of room for regional delicacies amid all the mass-produced stuff; we're partial to Mrs. Renfro's salsas and relishes out of Fort Worth. Needless to say, this Kroger also carries plenty of amenities that people in River Oaks and West U need, like free wireless, an olive bar, a bakery island and a deli case that never runs dry.
