We are not familiar with area at all, any advice from the Brain Trust here? Iím moving my oldest into the dorms this weekend. Looking for places to stay away from, places to go, good food, bad food. Well, any advice would be helpful.

Haven't been there in years but Generally anywhere around the Campus is good. Herberts for Mexican food. It use to be Joe's Crab Shack but now its Saltgrass, sit on the deck and enjoy the scenery. Late Evening check out Jack...Just a beer Joint. At the top of the college library is a Lonesome Dove exhibit/Museum Really cool college town and enjoyed my time there.

Herberts Taco Hut. Best cheese enchiladas with chile con carne on earth.

Hays County BBQ is as good as it gets.

I have frat buds who have sons & daughters going there.

The town has grown since we were there but as far as the college experience its still the same. You don't really have anything to worry about. You find the trouble, it doesn't come looking for you.

Their kids love the town as much as we did.

One of my really good buddies owns Jack's. They're closed down by the governor right now with all other bars.

Saltgrass isn't on the river anymore they built off 35.

Sewell park has been closed all summer.

I never left San Marcos after graduating from Southwest Texas State back in the day.
Grins is one of our go to favorite restaurants. Chicken Fried Steak, burgers, etc...
Like SmTx stated - Saltgrass moved. Nothing is in that building on the river right now.
All river access has been closed in town - and I'm not happy about it! Love hitting the river for a cool down in the evenings at Rio Vista Falls (near the baseball fields along I-35).
I'm with BoB and JHT with vote on Alvin Ords!
Herbert's and Garcia's are both great for Mexican food.
As for bad food... don't really recall any as they don't stay in business long.

Can't really call out any places to stay away from.

My son is a SR. there now, I think? The way him and his mama talk the may have several more years? But none the less he has been there for 3 years. He works at the Craft House on the square. As far as I can tell the square is where the party is and the Craft House is my kids groups favorite hangout even before he worked there. I think he got a job there so he could "hook up his friends". And he figured out a way to get paid for being there as he was there all the time anyway.

All BS aside he loves it there and makes good grades. That town and school sure knows how to party though. And agreed all college towns know how its done.

My son is a senior there. Lots of places closed down due COVID. you can still float the river, but takes two cars or an Uber and have to pay for river access in most places. Grin’s is very popular place. Lots of hiking in area, but gonna be real hot right now. If you head towards Dripping Springs, lots of craft breweries and wineries in the area.

So a little speculation but I believe that Aquarena Springs was just going downhill and not making money. I hadn't been there in years.
The University has tons of money and has been buying up a lot of property in and around town for years. The University bought Aquarena Springs and the 9-hole golf course next door. The University shut down the touristy stuff at Aquarena Springs and is supposed to be using it as part of their university research and such.
They left the 9-hole golf course pretty much as is until it flooded really bad. All the golf carts were ruined and the pro shop was under water. I believe this was caused by the 2015 Memorial Day flood but I may be mixed up on when it happened. The University left the golf course closed down for quite a while and they are just now wrapping up a project of creating soccer fields on that property.

That's about what I have heard. They bought the place more of a land investment rather than keeping it running. The buying point of turning it into a new curriculum major of Hotel & Restaurant Mgmt like they have at U o Houston.

I swam in the show for a few years. Best job ever even considering getting paid below minimum wage since it was considered seasonal employment.

Beast kegs were $30 back then. Just needed six people to throw a party for $5 a piece.

Summer school was nothing but fun.

Some of my favorite Walkable/Bus Transport from campus housing food places:

- Grins (lunch/dinner)
- Dos Gatos Bakery (breakfast)
- Gilís Broiler (Burgers and Mansky Rolls)
- Alvin Ords (sub sandwiches)
- Italian Garden (lunch/dinner)
- Tap Room (best burger in town)

Campus is pretty safe minus the normal sporadic car break ins.

Still wouldnít walk alone late at night.

University Golf Course is cheap to play with student ID

Cheatham Street Warehouse is a must for live music and is now owned by Randy Rogers.

I was on the river almost everyday. We bought kayaks and kept them on the patio of our dorm. Always had snorkel gear, Hawaiian sling, fishing rods, and kayak.

Things I wouldnít do:

Donít drink and drive!!!!!

Do not host a Hawaiian themed party in your dorm room complete with an inflatable pool full of water and college women sipping trash can punch.

Donít spear fish west of I-35 in San Marcos River. Game Wardens frown upon it. Even if itís only tilapia.

Donít shoot deer from back yards or duplex garages off of Craddock Ave with crossbows.

Do not set off dry ice water bottle bombs in campus parking garages to see how many car alarms you can set off. University PD will draw down their gun on you. Hard to explain this situation to parents and hall director.

Do not ride dorm elevators in a sombrero and cowboy boots, only. Clothing isnít optional.

Do not throw water balloons off the top of the dorms at passerbyís. It will knock them down on contact.

Ok now that I covered freshman year....

Alvin Ords is NOT sub sandwiches.

If you wouldn't walk alone at night in San Marcos you must be a scardy cat.

The 9 hole golf corse is no longer.

San Marcos BBQ is just as good or better.

Hays County BBQ
San Marcos BBQ (the old Southwest Market building and pit)
Blacks

If you're going to drive 20 minutes from SM for bbq go to City Market in Luling.

Dont forget about Pluckers. Also, students can go golf at The Bandit in New Braunfels for $20 with student ID. Great course and price point. The University 9 hole course is no longer there. Don'ts: Parking downhill of campus

I have an BS and MS from SWT.... (late 90's) so my information is pretty dated. My wife is also a graduate. Campus enrollment has grown substantially since then as have admission standards. My son is looking at attending next year.

Herbert's is a classic. Insider tip, the food is the same and is served in three presentations- flat, folded or in a pile.

The river is spectacular. Go do some tubing.

Campus rec and workout facility is really nice.

Learn the buildings before setting a schedule. You can walk uphill both ways on that campus.

Like all colleges- there is a party scene. I don't think TxState is that much different than most other colleges though. The 'party school' image from the '80's really hung around for a long time though.
