Shoot, Herberts is the BEST mex-food in town. Don't expect to wait more than about 5 minutes for your food, they are fast. Also, don't expect fancy. But do expect yummy.

there is a sak n' pak ice house for that late night ice cream bar you may be craving. You could walk there in about 20 minutes or drive in 2, if you go fast. Sam's Club or HEB has the least expensive gasoline to buy.
