Herbert’s Taco Hut, San Marcos

Herbert's Taco Hut, San Marcos

If you ask just about anyone, they’ll tell you that the best place to eat in San Marcos is at Herbert’s Taco Hut!  The little restaurant has been a staple in the town since 1976, when the restaurant was opened.  Tex-Mex at it’s finest, it’s the perfect spot to grab something to eat after a day on the river!  Since my son started college at Texas State in the Fall, it’s our go-to place for lunch when we visit!

Herbert's Taco Hut, San Marcos

You’ll likely have to wait, because good food and affordable prices are popular in a college town, but it’s worth it.  We’ve often just ordered to go and taken the food across the street to the park.  The enchiladas are amazing, as are their freshly made flour tortillas.  They even bottle and sell their hot sauce, so be sure to grab some!

Rio Vista Park, San Marcos

Around the corner from Herbert’s is Rio Vista Park, where many of the tubing shuttles pick up, such as Lion’s Club Tube Rental.  The park is free to visit, and on any sunny day you’ll find it full of people tubing, swimming, sunbathing and just having fun, even in February!  It’s a nice walk after a big lunch at Herbert’s!  Click HERE to read more about Rio Vista Park!

Head the opposite direction at Herbert’s, and you’ll come across the San Marcos Discovery Center and Tour San Marcos, the town’s Visitors Center, which can provide you with tons of information on more things to do in town!  Click HERE to visit their website.
