Off State Highway 130 in Hutto, Texas, a gas station opened in January. That's not such big news, unless you consider what kind of gas station it is. After the arrival of H-E-B Plus! on the block in November 2016, a portion of lot reserved for the gas station was still in construction. And then a Whataburger sign went up.
This H-E-B convenience store, one of only ten in the state, features a 24-hour Whataburger drive-through on one side of the building. The other side features a filling station with 10 pumps, a car wash, and both shops are open 24/7.
While Whataburger is the real draw here, it should be noted that the H-E-B convenience store isn't too shabby, either.
The shop features hand-rolled sushi, sandwiches, pizza, and traditional grab-and-go items. The first combination H-E-B and Whataburger in Central Texas, it's about 30 miles north of Austin.
It's the last day of #TexFest, can you believe it? Our Texas food and drink is full of flavor, and full of history. Our growers, brewers, producers and craftspeople have stories to tell. Until next year's TexFest, you can still #GoTexan and #DrinkLocal 365 days of the year in the great state of Texas. 📷: @katescuriouskitchen
Additionally, the H-E-B Plus! itself is the only store of H-E-B's 370 that has The Optical inside, the new optometrist shop from H-E-B that is similar to Lenscrafters.
The next time you plan a road trip, make sure you pass by this thing of beauty. It's worth it, trust me.
