Food Scene
Awesome food in a very modern brew-pub setting. This is the closest San Marcos has to a Gastro-Pub. This is my go-to place when I am taking guests out to eat.

There are now two Garcia's. This is the original one, and I think the food is better here. Hands down most popular family-owned Mexican restaurant in San Marcos.

All of our BBQ places are fairly equal in my opinion. I listed this one because it's close to the house, and visitors seem to love it. He's from the famous BBQ family that hails out of Lockhart.

I am putting Cafe in as a center point for the entire square. Almost all of San Marcos's nightlife occurs after 10pm in the myriad of bars that border the Square. Cafe is also a decent place to have breakfast.
