ROBSTOWN, Texas — Hundreds of people in Robstown got lucky this hot afternoon. They got a free smoothie and met one of their hometown heroes.

On Friday afternoon, Rod N' Rolls gave away 500 smoothies. The line of cars waiting to get to the restaurant snaked down Business Highway 44.

Former Robstown Cottonpickers star pitcher and now Texas Ranger Florencio Serrano was on hand to give them away.

Friday's event was organized by the restaurant's owners, Rodney and Roland Flores, who enjoy donating to various groups and giving back to their community.

The restaurant's general manager helped with Friday's event and thanked all of the customers who stopped by.

"With this quarantine going on, it's been hard for everybody especially small businesses. We're just trying to do something positive for the community, for our business and to give appreciation for everyone who's supported us all these years."
