Centerpoint Station, just across the highway from the San Marcos outlet malls, is my newest favorite stop on Interstate 35! It’s a quirky combination of malt shop, boutique, bakery, museum of Americana, and home style restaurant that claims to serve the Best Burgers in Texas. I don’t know that I’d go that far, but the Avocado Jack Burger I tucked into was pretty darned tasty. I swallowed my Big Guy Pride and ordered the quarter-pound “ladies version” with a side of (really good) onion rings, and was very glad I opted for the (relatively) smaller portion. (The “normal” order is a half-pound burger!) I also ordered fried pickles and was surprised (and dismayed) that they dipped and fried pickle spears, not slices. (I had not noticed that the menu does indicate they are spears.) The result was a bit mushy and really only tasted of warm pickles.
Our group’s order included a variety of burgers, since that was the claim to fame. All were grilled to perfection and served with crispy toppings, melty cheeses and freshly baked buns. We tried desperately to save room for desert but only managed a taste of the San Marcos River Mud; chocolate sheet cake (though more like a brownie) topped with vanilla ice cream. It was good, but nobody was upset that they hadn’t really saved room for it.
The floats, on the other hand, were totally worth it. Coming in off the highway and sitting down with a Creamscicle Float is heavenly. You could opt for a traditional root beer float, the Black Cow, get crazy with a Purple Cow trading in the root beer for grape soda, or try any of a half-dozen other flavors, all made with Texas’ own Blue Bell Ice Cream. Centerpoint Station is also said to be home to the best malts on I-35, which we did not put to the test, and their bakery had an impressive display of kolaches, cupcakes, and wonderful smelling pecan cinnamon rolls.
Centerpoint Station was recommended by a family member who lives in the area, and is now someplace we’ll be recommending to everyone headed in that direction!
