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.
