At the end of the day, this is a large fibreglass statue of a road runner. It's not as large as I expected.

Drove by this cute fellow as we were checking out the very limited sites of Fort Stockton. He was all decked out in his finest Christmas attire, so we had to take a photo. He's the reason we ventured down into the historical section of town and discovered Annie Riggs museum and the auto tour.

As expected, the Giant Road Runner is wearing Christmas garb. He looks very colorful and adds a festive feel to Fort Stockton.

What fun to find this Roadrunner - Beep Beep - easily visible on the main street and the drive thru market next door has a lot of space to stop so you can get a picture. It is easy, especially in the wide open spaces of East Texas. The claim it is the world's largest roadrunner, but my wife and... More

We were looking forward to seeing this bit of Americana in Fort Stockton. We drove right past it without noticing it because it is tucked in a nondescript, busy corner. We had to ask a local for directions.A sign would have been helpful in locating it. The roadrunner itself is beautiful. It should be displayed in a better location in... More

Just a quick jump off the highway and you can find this guy standing tall ready for a photo memory ! But you'll want to be careful he is a little wobbly, wouldn't want him to fall on you ! :-)

What can you say about a giant road runner? We drove the whole width of Texas. It is gigantic. Paisano Pete is a giant symbol of west Texas. We all posed for pictures. You have to stand next to him to realize how big he really is. Unlike what another reviewer said, there is plenty of room to park. I... More

They do grow them big in Texas! Love coming by and seeing the big bird. It needs a little tlc, since we were there two years ago.

We spent the night in Fort Stockton and I like to photograph roadside statues(Muffler Men, etc.) and Paisano Pete sure fits the bill. The only downside is there is no parking except for an empty lot just east and then having to cross the highway. The little park is well maintained and makes for a good photo backdrop.
