Rudy’s Gas

“We sell ETHANOL FREE conventional gas at this location.”

Rudy’s Gas

Rudy’s BBQ is a legend, with the original location just west of me in Leon Springs — essentially a San Antonio suburb. The chain is far-reaching, extending throughout the southwest, but I hold that original location as sacrosanct.

The subsequent locations, North Austin comes to mind, Round Rock, maybe, it’s a gas station and BBQ place. All of them are, more or less. I recall the one in Waco, then West El Paso, gas, convenience store, and BBQ.

On the way to fish, we stopped the one on South Padre Island Drive, Corpus Christi (TX). Not quite to Flour Bluff, home of the second-best grocery store in the world (best is still South Austin).

Curious table tent, “Our gas is ethanol-free.”

    Living, traveling, fishing in your neck of the woods–you don’t need to make this stuff up. It’s native grown. You come by your quirks honestly, IMHO.
