Best Automotive Service Center: Big Ed's

Now in a five-year streak, Ed Kloesel, owner of Big Ed's on North Main Street, has maintained his title as Victoria's best automotive service center.

Although the shop has downsized since last year because of the lure of the oil industry, Kloesel said the business is running strong.

He said the biggest help is the community of others in the same field.

"You can't just do it all yourself," Kloesel said. "I've got good people I can refer to and I trust them, and they trust me to send their people here."

He compared it to the medical field - which is now highly specialized.

"It's not bumper to bumper or head to toe, everybody specializes in something," he said. "We can't do it all, but we know who to send you to if we can't."
