In late March, Hays Co. Bar-B-Que & Catering Co., 1612 S. I-35, San Marcos, began an expansion that will construct a new, larger building behind the restaurant’s current building and will repave the property’s parking lot. Co-owner Michael Hernandez said he anticipates the project taking about 7 months.

The restaurant will remain open throughout the construction, except for one or two weeks right before the restaurant moves into the new building. Hernandez said he anticipates holding a grand opening for the new facility after construction is complete. 512-392-6000.
