Foodie Friday: Bobcat Quickie
Bobcat Quickie is the ultimate “if you know, you know” in San Marcos.
This to-go food spot nestled inside of a local Exxon offers a quick and tasty bite. Bobcat Quickie has a wide selection of breakfast tacos, lunch tacos, burritos and a variety of plates.
Bobcat Quickie describes its food as made fresh, “with real ingredients in the traditional Mexican way.”
It might not be the most conventional spot to pick up one of your favorite Mexican dishes but it’s worth a try.
What to get:
With tacos aplenty at Bobcat Quickie, we ironically chose to sample two non-taco options.
My dining companion picked the burrito arre arre ($7.99), which comes with your choice of meat, rice, beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, pico and avocado. He went with beef fajitas as his meat selection.
My dining companion enjoyed his burrito, however, he complained that it was so full it wouldn’t close. For an affordable price, there are bigger things that could worry you.
I chose Bobcat Quickie’s quesadilla served with your choice of meat inside a tortilla with cheese, lettuce, tomato and avocado. I went with the barbacoa. This was a good selection and just filling enough for lunch.
Next visit to Bobcat Quickie, I’d like to sample a variety of its tacos.
