Dining

Tasty fare. San Marcos flair.

The infusion of cultures and lifestyles in San Marcos bring a surprising range of flavors to the table. Soak up some local art while sipping your perfectly blended cup of jo. Grab a bite from a food trailer at one of the mobile eateries before hitting the river. Enjoy a freshly crafted dinner at a local restaurant then stroll the Downtown Square to catch live music or an adult beverage from a rooftop view. From home-cooked treats and comfort food, to international cuisine, and lunch on the go, you’ll find just what your belly is looking for. Even your four-legged friends are welcome at many locations that have an outdoor patio or deck. Just look for a paw print on the restaurant listing photo.
