Mansky rolls

We stopped off for the Mansky roll we'd heard about from those who had tried them and raved about them. It was delicious. But I wouldn't make this a daily habit, not even a weekly habit. You get a sugar high after eating one of these rolls. It took me three days to eat one.

Always fresh and delicious. My family loves the burgers and desserts. We have 7 kids and they ask to come here always. Great deal for what you get!

Home made hamburger buns, hand formed hambuger patties, hand battered onion rings, delicious french fries...can't say enough about the quality of the food. And holy cow, the Manske rolls. Cinnabon has NOTHING on the Manske roll. It is absolutely the very best cinnamon roll I've ever had! Cashier was friendly to boot. This place is AMAZEBALLZ!

They are served hot after you finish your food. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling through San Marcos. It's a once in... More

The burgers were delicious with homemade buns and grilled onions. Also, you must have a Manske roll. They are heavenly. My mouth is watering just thinking of it.

We went to San Marcos for my nieces' graduation and stopped in at Gil's Broiler. Don't let the name fool you. They have the best cinnamon rolls on the planet! They are called "Manske Rolls". They are a "must have" if you visit San Marcos.

The burgers are great. Now some may dislike like it but I love that the bread has sort of a sweet taste. The Manske's a really sweet but they're great.
