Suds and Burgers

A fun place to have a great brew and a delicious hamburger. A little noisy buy that's to be expected in a place this big and popular.

Amazing burgers and great atmosphere in the heart of San Marcos! Definitely a place to visit when in town. Right next to Texas State University as well. ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺🍺🍻🍔

One of my favorite spots in San Marcos. My visit isn't complete without stopping here for a snakebite and a guacamole-queso burger with onion rings. #bestburgerinsanmarcos Yum!

This is my friends and mine favorite place to go to. They have a variety of beers on tap that change from time to time. It is a must try place if you're in town. Late at night it gets pretty busy, crowded and extremely loud but its still worth the wait.

Anyone that went to Texas State University knows this place well. I never knew about it til I started school. The burgers are amazing. My personal fave is the guacamole queso burger. I add some bacon and its a delight. The mixed beers are pretty awesome too. Its not a great looking place but who cares. The atmosphere is great.... More

Pick a burger, any burger, and this place will deliver. The mushroom swiss burger is my personal fav. Their selection of beer is quite impressive as well. The only drawback is that it is dimly lit, and the acoustics are poor, so it is usually very loud. Holding a conversation or catching up with someone can be trying.

My wife and I recently visited the Tap Room and had a great experience. We entered The Porch from the square and it is not immediately obvious where the Tap Room is located. Go through the bar area and down a hallway. Seating is self serve. The waitress told us to seat ourselves which was odd considering there were no... More

Stayed for one night in San Marcos after arriving at Austin Airport and we were advised to eat at The Tap Room. It is obviously a very popular place as had trouble getting a table. My salad and chips were really good but the server forgot our other main meal, which was really disappointing as it took ages to get... More

We stopped in mid-day for some tacos and beer. The place was alive; lots of TVs going and lots of folks moving in and out. San Marcos is a great college town and the students make the place come alive. It was friendly, kick-back, with no rush to move you on. Definitely a great hangout with all the draft beers... More

Stopped by The Tap Room for lunch after visiting the local University. What a great local treasure. The burgers were excellent. The buns melt in your mouth and the beef tasted like a higher quality cut than is often served at other places. The fried onion rings were some of the best I have tried. My husband thought his burger... More
