Visited San Marcos to take a tour of the campus with my son. I love Alvin Ord's and ate there all of the time when I went to college. It's the same as I remember. They have expanded a bit since the last time I was there. Still a great sandwich, Shlotzskys style. Asking for a tip when I ordered was awkward, as I have seen in other posts. My advice would to be to tell the customer, "if you had great service would you consider leaving a tip for our great sandwich makers, they are starving students?" Way better approach and would probably generate more tips.
Will definately visit again. I hope with the expansion of the college Alvin Ord's won't get eaten up. Hopefully they will relocate if that happens.
