Did you know?
The area that is now Old California Restaurant Row was once just a simple fruit and vegetable stand?
In the early 70s, Jim and Vera Eubank moved to San Marcos from Newport Beach and fell in love with the rural setting and community. As a real estate developer and business man, Jim had a hunch that San Marcos would become a bustling place. So, he decided to purchase a 20-acre parcel on what is now San Marcos Blvd. and Via Vera Cruz.
Constructing a small building on the property, they started the first ‘Farmers Market’. This local produce stand became very popular and it wasn’t long before Jim began construction on an open food court, which quickly became the talk of the town.
In 1978, Jim personally built his first full service restaurant. It was called Gentlemen’s Choice. And, over the next 25 years, the Old California Restaurant Row we see today became what is now an icon in San Marcos.
