The County Line's Randy Goss, known to many as "The Rib King," died in his car Thursday.
Goss, 55, was found inside his car, which was submerged in water.
His barbecue has been a popular fixture in San Antonio for years, and his face was known to many from the billboards seen around town for years. He will also be remembered for the weekly music series at the I-10 restaurant that raised canned goods for the San Antonio Food Bank.
According to a statement released by the restaurants, "Today we lost a friend, a husband, a father, a King. In respect to the Goss family and all of us at The County Line who loved him dearly, we will wait until the weekend to announce his memorial services. Thank you for your consideration."
The restaurant's I-10 location planned on closing Thursday evening but would be open again Friday.
The County Line is at 111 W. Crockett St. and at 10101 W. I-10.
