Anyone who has not tried the ribs at Tap Room are missing out. Consistently the best in town. Burgers are not too shabby either! Suprisingly good food and quite the variety of beers.

I've been living in San Marcos for about a year and a half and I absolutely love this place. Coworkers and I will come here after a long day at work and we're never dissatisfied. The beer is awesome, the ppl are fun, and the burgers are one of a kind. Definitely recommend this place.

If you get a chance try their burgers. Keep in mind it is a bar in a college town. Loud and no frills atmosphere.

Awesomeness in all their burgers! I had the Swiss and mushroom burger, excellent period. No mystery meat between these buns! Anyway, great college atmosphere, at least before 6:30 :)

Love this place for it's wide variety of beers! Wednesday's special are wings...some of the best I've ever eaten. If you can mind the smoke it's not too bad. If you go before 5, outs not too bad!

The Tap Room is a fun place for some local brews and pub food. Lots of TV screens to keep up with whatever is going on in the sports world. Server was very attentive. Definitely a popular local hang out for the university crowd.

Had a great lunch here with my wife and daughter while we watches a UT game on the many screens. My burger was as good as recommeded, Beth liked her wings and Pat's salad looked good. We had great service and food when the restaurant was hopping busy. We will be back!
