What I Ate: April 24, 2009 (Centerpoint Station)

Lunch was quick and easy. I whipped up a few crepes, reheated the leftover turnip greens with chopped up ribeye steak, and rolled them up.

We needed something in San Marcos this evening, so we headed down there and ended up dining at Centerpoint Station (3946 Ih 35 S, San Marcos, TX‎ - (512) 392-5253‎) which has no relation to the Star Wars superweapon of the same name. We ordered an Avocado Jack which is a half pound burger with avocado, Monterey Jack cheese, sauteed mushrooms, lettuce and tomatoes which they split in half for us. The burger was alright - nothing special, but not too bad. I was surprised that the patty was supposed to be 1/2 pound. Seemed a little thin for a 1/2 pound of beef…

We also ordered Frings (a portmanteau of French Fries & Onion Rings) so we could try them both. The fries and onion rings came in immense quantities. We did not even attempt to finish them.

Service was a little bit of an issue here. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to you. Unfortunately, they weren't prompt about it. Tina noticed our fries and rings sitting ready but not yet picked up. By the time we got them, it was lukewarm, and by the time we were eating them in earnest, they were room temperature. I kept thinking this would probably be pretty good if they were still hot. At least two other tables complained about not receiving orders in a timely manner while we ate.

We also had a cinnamon roll which Tina thought was too sweet. It was fluffy with a good chewy texture and I thought the sweetness wasn't over the top but would have preferred more cinnamon.
