I did buy gas in Gilroy the other day and the Arco station on Leavesley was $4.17 a gallon for 87 octane. It's $4.25 and more in Watsonville.

A decent restaurant would have been nice. Maybe like a Black Bear Diner, IHOP, Pleasure Pizza, Armadillo Willies, etc. It's kind of an awkward location though.

A good restaurant might be nice, despite the awkward location. Unfortunately, none of the places you suggested are even remotely good.

Thats nice, there putting a gas station right next to the school?? Because there arnt enough random people lurking aroung there any way...... and im sure the fumes arnt the best thing to be breathing in either....

There isn't enough room in that spot for any type of sit down restaurant. I'd just like to see them get this thing DONE. Why did it have to take YEARS just to get started, and now, in the middle of it all, work has STOPPED for months. What gives? Get it done already.
