This restaurant is a host favorite, living on the Austin side of San Marcos and about 30 minutes from this establishment. Very good chef, good service with daily specials. They have a spacious outdoor area and offer a venue for local musicians on the weekends. Friday is prime rib night and don’t miss the happy hour. This place is no longer a secret, so plan ahead.

Fall Creek has a very nice selection of wines. Some very nice blends too. They do have busy times, but otherwise offer good accommodation for tastings for small and larger groups. Good idea to call ahead with very large groups. Yes, this can be a tourist’s “trap” as located across from the Salt Lick. Excellent pairing for bbq and wine. So plan wisely and you will have a nice couple of hours.
