Default Places to buy Truckload of River rock?

Hey guys, I need some help please finding a place to buy bulk "river stone" type of rock on the West End part of town where i can load a truck bed full.
Maybe someone can save me some time and share the 411.

I didn't either. It must be hiding out back behind the mountains of mulch!

Try Rocksolidsa.com they beat keller and they are close to your area. I used them for a Flagstone project, and used river rock and pavers for my trees

I don't know how far 'west' you're talking about but I recently picked up around 2,000 lbs of stone at a place at FM 1560 and Shanefield (outside 1604) and the prices were unbelievable. $175 for a full pallet of the 5x5x14 limestones (they had river rock too). Considering the big box stores charge over $3 per stone, it was a bargain. I can't remember the name but will repost when I get a name/number.
