Republic Ranch, from Woodrow grad and self-proclaimed “Fried Jesus” Abel Gonzales, will have its grand opening Saturday. The sprawling restaurant on the quickly developing strip of Ross between downtown and Greenville Avenue will offer oversized board games on a massive patio, an arcade, bar and Tex-Mex. Gonzales made a name for himself with Texas State Fair creations such as fried butter and fried Coca-Cola, and will now try his hand at running the eatery at 3121 Ross Ave.
