San Marcos Recommendations?

A good friend is moving to San Marcos from the East Coast, and I wanted to buy her a gift certificate for a great restaurant to help her and her husband explore their new neighborhood. I'm hoping folks could help me find something special. Essential: Great good, low key, a place for a date night without the kids. Type of food not important, they love variety. Does not have to be right in san Marcos, but within 20m would be preferable. Thanks for your help!

  1. It's not a date place, but Woody's in San Marcos has some of the best barbecue in the state, at least on par with what you'll find in Lockhart of Luling. The brisket, the pork ribs, the smorked pork chops, the links-all superlative. And the sides. Cedars Mediterranean is pretty great. Woody's is family friendly, by the way.
