San Marcos locals love Kobe for it’s amazing hibachi grilled food and endless sushi options, but the official Twitter for this San Marcos restaurant is perhaps just as good.

Kobe will post their drink and food specials so that the San Marcos community knows the best time to come, but what makes the account so likeable is the mix of funny, food-related memes and retweets of fans that just can’t get enough.
