In the world of destination food joints, most gas stations don’t cut it. But there are exceptions. Chef Point Cafe in Watauga serves up some fine cuisine inside of a Conoco. Tiger Farms Market on Wilshire Boulevard in Burleson might be the best place to buy road trip food in Texas. And then there is BBQ on the Brazos, located at a Texaco station on Highway 377 in Cresson, which is definitely a destination worth the trip.

As soon as you enter the small two-floored restaurant — there are three tables downstairs and another seven or eight upstairs — the smell of the meats enchants you. My guests included three adults and three kids: 9, 7, and 5, all girls. They’re a tough crowd for anything but roast chicken and rice with lime juice. It didn’t take long to win over these finicky eaters.

  1. You should try the Hickory Tree in Burleson some time. Pulled pork stuffed potato skins are too die for. Everything I’ve tried has been delicious. Fresh never frozen.

    • I always love reading good food reviews, then followed up by someone trying to jump in and pimp their brother-in-laws place. If Hickory Tree was so good, you need not trash another mans review to try and sell it. The food and publicity obviously need a little help, hence you posting here.

      BBQ on the Brazos is a great place…if you can get past the owner’s ugly mug.
