Texans Joe and Wendy Snyder opened a franchise of Anchor Bar on June 20 at 1400 Aquarena Springs Drive, San Marcos. This is the third Anchor Bar in Texas with a fourth opening in Round Rock this August; the other two locations are in Schertz and San Antonio.

“When I decided to open a restaurant, I was looking for a wholesome concept with great food. Anchor Bar was the obvious choice. This will be our third location in Texas, and we love being a family-friendly sports bar with world-famous wings,” Joe Snyder said in a statement.

Anchor Bar was founded in 2009 in New York, where the majority of the locations are. The San Marcos location features a sports bar and separate family dining area with the signature Anchor Bar wings, pizza, burgers and sandwiches on the menu.

“Our long history of sharing America’s favorite food is built on family, and that’s why it’s important that every Anchor Bar is run locally, by community business owners like our partners in Texas. We’re excited about this new endeavor and look forward to long partnerships,” CEO of Anchor Bar Franchise and Development Mark Dempsey said in a statement. 210-492-9464. www.anchorbar.com
