Rumpys has wonderful baked goods. They have strudel, sweet rolls, cookies, brownies, cakes, and kolaches. They have it all. But what we didn't expect was the pizza. It is more of a pie, filled with tons of delicious "toppings", with cheese on top. One cannot...More

As a person of Czech Heritage, I’m constantly on the lookout for the perfect kolache that resembles my grandmother’s. This bakery is in a gas station that offers a quick ‘gas and snack’ stop on your way through northern Texas. Comparisons to this one and...More

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!!!

Saw this place on our way to see my daughter and decided to stop on our return to home. Missed the exit in Gainesville which lead to a 3 mile diversion, but it was worth it. Ordered their fruit and sausage kolaches. Good sized for...More

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!

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!
