Texas' Gas Station Foods Are Like Nothing Else In The Country
Texas’ vast roadway network created a culture of drivers and an opportunity for entrepreneurs trying to break into the food service scene. Gas station restaurants have taken over the Lone Star State, providing delicious meals to commuters and allowing Texas’ diverse immigrant population to share the unique tastes of their cultures’ foods.
In Texas, you can get a side of Nepalese dumplings while topping off your tank, and The Dallas Observer notes that you might find customers skipping the snack aisle at Shell stations in favor of digging into Peruvian-style ceviche. If you’re looking for a kick, La Salsa Verde’s tacos de lengua fresh from the Chevron station can’t be beat.
Next-level comfort foods like lobster mac and cheese are on the menu alongside Bloody Marys and mimosas at the Chef Point Bar and Grill inside a Conoco station. The cuisine choices at gas station eateries have become so sought after that many stations have shut down the pumps and dedicated their spaces to the mouth-watering foods customers crave.
