Best Tacos: Fuel City



Calling Fuel City a “gas station” is like saying The Grapes of Wrath is a story about a car trip. It’s an understatement. Fuel City—owned by Woodrow High grad John Benda—is a 24-hour gas station and truck stop, yes, but also a drive-thru beer store that features live steer, a swimming pool, bikini-clad girls, and tacos made with a recipe that’s been in Benda’s family for three generations. He sells four varieties for a $1.26 apiece. The picadillo—made with spicy ground beef, potato, onions, cilantro, and fresh lime—was named the best taco in the entire state in 2006 by Texas Monthly.
