Between the cool retro-architecture and the central corner locations, old gas stations and auto body shops are becoming the sought-after real estate for restaurants and bars. Statistically, over 50,000 stations have closed since the 1990s and while many have been torn down, some have received a new lease on life. All of these eating and drinking establishments are pro-recommended spots for fueling up.
