BBQ Joint

“Ready for authentic BBQ? Rudy's is a quirky chain that can be found inside our local gas station. Don't let the gas pumps fool you, this is a great way to enjoy BBQ sitting at picnic tables as an offshoot of the convenience market just inside the gas station.”

Park
“ This park is RIDICULOUS! Its such a great area for the kids to run around. Also great hiking, biking trails that run along a creek. Awesome green belt area. The park has a race track that kids can take bikes, scooters or anything to "race" around the track. There's plenty of picnic tables to have lunch or snack at. You could rent a party area if you want as well. No shortage of swings, zip lines, sand dirt, it goes on and on. It's neat how it starts on the far right as a toddler/little kid area and as you go farther left it goes more into the big kid area. They even built a little pretend town with stop lights, sidewalks, an HEB, bank, police station, pet store and other shops.”
