Salty, Texas City Spotlight


Cookietown, Okla. Pie Town, N.M. Hot Coffee, Miss. Getting hungry yet?

America has plenty of towns named after some of our favorite food and beverage items. With today being National Potato Chip Day, and the fact that we got something big coming in the GasBuddy app next week (hint: it has to do with two amazing things = snacks + free gas) for this month’s City Spotlight it only seems appropriate to head to Salty, Texas to look at the top-rated gas stations nearby with the best service, amenities… and (of course) snacks.

Salty, an hour outside of Austin, was settled in 1860 and named for nearby Salty Creek. The town is so small, most consider it to be a part of the neighboring town, Rockdale. Outside of its church, community center and cemetery, residents go to the nearby towns Taylor and Rockdale to fill up on fuel and snacks. These are the top-rated gas stations near Salty, Texas.
