We stopped by today and I was looking forward to homemade pastries, etc. I bought 4 items. 1. A cold Ruben sandwich: Since it already has sauerkraut on it why do they put so much mustard on it too??!! Overkill! Ugh!!! 2. Fried Apricot pie:...More

This place serves a pizza that is, at least, 1.5 inches thick. One slice is enough for a meal for me, it has so many toppings! It is delicious! They also have baked goods such as cakes and caliches and other sweets. Delicious!!!

We just had to stop in after seeing the sign for Rumpy’s. The staff were friendly and helpful as we tried to narrow down our choice from all the yummy treats. Great selection of fresh pastieres and other treats. They also have a day old...More

This place is a hidden gem. It is a combination German bakery and gas station. We got their Raspberry Strudel today – it was SO good. I never expected to accidentally stumble upon a fine German bakery in a gas station near the Texas/Oklahoma border...More

A Gulf station and Rumpy's together--easy enter and exit from I-35 south. Their sweet treats are good. Ladies' restroom is always very clean. Recommended stop.

He had the cinnamon roll. I had a cream cheese pastry that was topped with raspberries. Oh my. I could have eaten then of them they were so good. But one of each was more than enough. Try the Texas pecan coffee!

A must stop if in Gainesville. Their pizza is amazing, but you won't believe the strudels, breads and pastries! Buy plenty or you'll regret it!

Rumpy's is a store that sells various German bakery items and meats. Because they have tables/chairs for eating their wares, I called it a restaurant. It could be an "attraction" but I think that's a stretch because they mainly serve food, beverages, and gasoline...with a few local gifts. We stop there every trip to Texas because of their great goodies!
