I love food served at gas stations and convenience stores. Every time I've passed by that Chevron on Montrose and Alabama, I've seen that picture of a two-egg breakfast plate on the window outside. And every time, I think, "Does their breakfast really look like that?" I got up early one day and finally decided to put an end to my curiosity.

I actually was impressed. They have tables and chairs and a little condiment/buffet table. It's nice and clean, and because it's a convenience store, there's a wide variety of drinks to go with your meal. I opted for some good old c-store coffee. I ordered the two-egg breakfast with hash browns and bacon. The eggs were cooked properly, and the hash brown patty was like one you'd get at McDonald's. But the best part was that they fried the bacon. I know fried bacon when I see it, and this was definitely fried. Nothing wrong with that. It was good and crunchy with out being too hard.

Plus, I got to eat breakfast at a gas station.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
