I ate lunch here on my recent trip to San Marcos and enjoyed it on their patio. The food was delicious and the scenery was out of this world! I'd visit again!

This is a Mexican Food hidden secret. Almost a hole in the wall with seating in and on a patio for 50...food is cooked in front of you. Fresh and hot. Mexican fruit drinks, horchata etc. available. Maria, the owner and her staff are very friendly and helpful. This is a San Marcos institution that will be town down soon... More
