I have lived in San Marcos for about three and a half years now and have found a number of great restaurants in the area. A few of my favorites happen to be Italian Garden, 54th Street Grill and Bar, Crafthouse, and Cafe on the Square. These obviously have different types of food, which is great for San Marcos because there is a good variety to choose from.
I asked a few of my friends to pick their favorite restaurant out of these four, and here are the results:
It is quite obvious that Crafthouse was the winner by popular vote. Italian Garden came in as runner-up, then came 54th Street along with Cafe on the Square. I believe Crafthouse had the most votes because of one, it’s convenient location on The Square, and second, it has good drinks that attract college students along with good food.
I think Italian Garden was runner-up because of it’s close location to The Square, and they also have good food! They do not sell alcoholic beverages, but it is BYOB which can attract college students as well. As for 54th Street, they do have great food and drinks, but it is a bit further away from The Square, which may be inconvenient for some. Finally, Cafe on the Square is located in a great part of town, but for some strange reason, it is harder for them to attract customers in comparison to the other restaurants listed.
