“Two Outlets Side-by-Side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2015

We have shopped here over the years many many times. There are actually two outlets side-by-side. You can definitely spend all day here. During peak times, parking is chaotic. In some cases, the same stores are at both Tanger and SMPO. The prices are typical outlet store prices. Don't always assume you're getting a great deal just because you're at an outlet. You still must shop to find a great deal. However, we keep coming back to shop here and we live three hours away. Definitely worth coming to.

“Tanger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015

The tanger side of the outlets is significantly smaller than the premium side. Do not confuse one for the other. The tanger side has more apparel shops. You can find stores like old navy, the children's place, Eddie Bauer and Wilsons leather. There is not a food court on this side of the outlet. You can find subway, Rocky Mountain chocolate factory, Taco Bell, Wendy's, and Outback Steakhouse. There is an office for shopper services right next to subway. There you can purchase a coupon book or sign up for other incentives. Some of the stores in the outlet offer a military, AARP, etc. it never hurts to ask!

“Always Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2015

There's a good range of discount outlets at this centre. You're meant to pay for a book of coupons but we were told of a tourist brochure that had a coupon for a free copy. The coupons weren't that useful anyway as they couldn't be used with other discounts and almost every shop had a 'special' discount when we visited.

“Shoppers paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2015

Huge huge outlet next to premium outlets within easy drive of both San Antonio and Austin on the I-35. There are great bargains on well known brands and ask about the daily special deals which most stores have. Not a lot of choice to eat there but hey who needs food when there is serious shopping to be done. Top tip is drive from one part to another it's far too big to walk it.

“Huge Outlet Mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2015

This is the largest outlet mall I have ever seen. Almost all of the space is full of stores unlike some other ones I have seen. This place is definitely worth stopping at.
