NACS MAGAZINE- August – Fruitville Texaco & Stottlemyer’s Smokehouse

Sarasota, FL – The fried chicken at Fruitville Texaco has gotten a lot of attention from the Florida media.  It’s crazy good and there is a secret.
Owner, Steve Stottlemyer knew customers could not get enough of his food. So, he decided to expand his food program with the best barbecue around and serve it in a unique atmosphere, a traditional Seminole Chickee Hut.  I know it says “tiki”- I’ll let Steve tell you about it when you visit.

Don’t be surprised if you hear Dixieland Jazz or a little Cajun Music here. Steve’s a big fan Louisiana music.
