The outdoor set up was nice but was a little cold so we stayed inside. Interior was shabby and layout seems odd. Anyway, our food came and it was really good. We were looking for something different. A little pricey but it was okay since we wanted to try something new.

We went there on a Friday night at 6:00 PM. They were out of several of the staples of a southern/cajun restaurant. For instance, they did not have hush puppies and had not had them for a couple of days. We were bewildered why they could not go to a local grocery store and get ingredients to make some simple...

My buddy Joe and I were looking for a place ot meet and eat about business, and found this place. We were attracted by the "southern food" comeon because we're both from Texas. The menu was varied, and had all the usual suspects, and we both chose the beef stew. We also got an order of corn dodgers (hushpuppies to... More

Loved the food -- Nice ribeye steak, hush puppies, fried okra. Don't sit too close to the band if you want to talk with your dinner partners; but the music's pretty good.

What a beautiful day to sit out on the patio and enjoy a nice southern inspired meal. Even though the restaurant was virtually empty at lunchtime, the service was a bit slow and the waitress inattentive. The food was really good though. The Big John's Pasta was so yummy and big enough for two. I ordered the mild version and... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon Rhythm City Grill while walking through restaurant row in San Marcos looking for a place to eat. It's hidden, located in the back of the shops and restaurants. The patio is quite large and was told can fill up on weekends. They have live music every Fri, Sat, and Sun evening. Super friendly staff.... More
