My favorites

My favorites are the Italian Garden (not even sure if that is still the name) and Southwest Market. You have to get to Southwest Market early though, because the stuff seems to dry out in the afternoon. I believe that the guys that run Southwest Market were cooks at Kreuz in Lockhart, before the big family blowup. Of course, if you're asking about places to eat around here, you probably don't know or care about all that either.

I really miss Wesray's. I can't believe the next place had smoking in that little underground room, but that's just me.

I've been told on other threads that I am a f***ing idiot and a typical San Marcos Jackass, so follow my advice at your own risk.

:P

Try downtown

A few old ladies would love the Hill Country Grill downtown on the square. It is an old renovated bank building used to make a movie back in the 70.s

The bank

The bank was also robbed by the Newton gang. If you watch the movie, there is a scene where one of the brothers blows up the safe, but he uses too much explosives and blows the safe door into the street.

That's the bank where it happened, or so they say.

The food is pretty good. It wasn't so hot when they first opened, but it has gotten a good bit better.

Also

The new Kobe Steakhouse is surprisingly good. They did not have everything I was looking for, but they had a lot and the people are great.

The Thai Thai Cafe on LBJ is also very good and I always forget about it because it is on the other side of town.

Southwest Market, whenever they decide to open. Been to Kip's once and enjoyed it. If it is not BBQ I am cooking it at home.

I've had some of the worst meals of my life at other places in town. Lack of good places to eat is the worst thing about SM. Also, the grocery stores leave much to be desired. I have to stop at Central Market in Austin once a week.

Easiest Way to tell ya is too....

35 south...
Exit 204 B ( CM ALLEN EXIT )
stay on service road, past all the hotels. When you pass the Parkside Inn and Suites, you'll then come to Harbison Auto sales.
Take a right, right after the car dealer. Before the San Marcos Visitor Center.

You'll see Herberts, on the right.

Alot of people complian about the service. But that's not what Herberts is about.
Their a family that runs their resturaunt around, cheap plates, quality product, and fast ( not necesarly freindly) Service.

Order the Enchiladas with Tea...You won't be disapointed
