The second half of 2018 brought new restaurants to San Marcos. Recently opened eateries provide a new experience for visitors and locals alike.
This vegetarian kitchen has a wide menu of green eats to choose from.
Located on 121 N Fredericksburg St., Binge Kitchen provides feelings of comfort, and a safe place for anyone to come enjoy a meal and socialize.
The eco-friendly eatery emphasizes genuine, flavorful food to make sure each dish is made especially for the consumer.
Yarnisha and Balazsi Lyons, owners of Binge Kitchen, said they want to make sure people know the restaurant has a friendly environment.
“We serve compassion (and) a variety of healthy food options,” Yarnisha Lyons said.
Beau Gentry, aquatic biology freshman, said he recommends the Chipotle Burger.
“You couldn’t even tell the difference,” Gentry said. “The veggie burger’s flavors tasted more like a burger than a traditional beef patty.”
After two years of being built, another new food choice will finally be available to visit in the square: Industry.
This brand new restaurant has a pristine, laid-back environment to lounge in and enjoy a bite to eat.
Located on 110 E Martin Luther King Drive, Industry owners’ goal is to invite all who want to enjoy a flavorful meal in a comfortable setting.
Cody Taylor, owner of Industry, said he believes a lot of the healthier options on the menu will be more popular. The restaurant has a mixture of both meat and veggie-style dishes.
“We have a smoker in the kitchen that we use for a lot of ingredients,” Taylor said.
This adds to the many flavors you might get from any of the menu items.
