Read Some of Our Fantastic Reviews For Lester's Shop From All Over The Web...
My son is at school in San Marcos and was having trouble with his car. I checked on yelp and found Lester's Shop listed with great reviews, so I suggested he go there to get his car checked over. Turns out it was something very minor -- and they fixed him up and sent him on his way without charging him a penny. Wow! Now he has an auto repair shop he feels comfortable with so I know he will go back if he needs help again. They are awesome!

I contacted Lester from a recommendation from a friend. I bought a used truck I needed so much done to. I had them change all my fluids, check my components, put in new lights all around the vehicle and remove some things from the truck. After it was all said and done, they only charged me 400.00 (+-) which is amazing. The best part is...they care about their customers. These guys gave me a ride to work both days!! Lester and Forest are top notch! I work for a large building company and I am ranting and raving how great they are there.
Dont take you car anywhere else. Lesters is my only recommendation. 5star all day long!
Lester asked me where I'd heard about the shop. When I told him Yelp, he said "Don't tell me! I never read my reviews, but if you came in after you read them, they must be okay."
I didn't tell Lester his shop had 100% positive reviews, just that they were very okay. :)
I brought my little 9-year-old car in to get a thorough look-over before I take a road trip. I was sure they were going to come back telling me about the engine, the transmission, the brakes, and goodness knows what else. Instead, they replaced a headlight bulb that I'd asked about, replaced my air filter (I'd asked about an oil change, but was told the oil was still clean), and recommended some tire and alignment work that Lester's doesn't do in the shop. Total cost was extremely reasonable, and they even gave me a ride to and from my home even though they were short-staffed that day.
Bonus points for what ought to be standard: treating a woman like a person who can understand things, not a person to be screwed over as much as possible. I felt Lester was very straightforward with me and kept me updated on what was happening.
If I were staying in the area, I'd definitely be a repeat customer.

Based on good reviews I sent my daughter to get a side mirror repaired. They screwed it back in for her free of charge and it is good as new. I will certainly be sending her back there for future work.

Both Lester and Forest are amazing!
My car was running a little weird and so I decided to look on yelp to see if I could find a good place to go; I stumbled upon Lester's shop and read the reviews and decided to just go for it. And good thing I did! They are so nice and very honest and it was very reasonably priced! My car runs better than it ever did! He is definitely my new mechanic.
Someone I know recommended Lester's shop, She races cars, so I figured she knew what she was talking about when she said he was good. I crash cars (into trees, mostly) so I needed someone who was a) trustworthy and b) good and c) affordable. Lester is all three. The shop didn't recommend anything I didn't need (unlike another shop in town, which tried to sell me some expensive and unnecessary strut work) and worked within my graduate student budget to get my car road trip ready. Highly recommend!

First of all when you call lester's shop lester answers. Its a beautiful thing. I brought my car to him before I bought it so they could check it out. They did ... and it was a great help, so when I bought it, I brought it straight back to them and they fixed the necessary things in just a couple hours for less than a couple hundred. They were great!
Definitely definitely go there if you need car repairs. They are my new best friends!

I needed some work done and decided to check out a mechanic close to my work for my convenience, the estimate was large and did not address my whole reason for being there. I called my husband just to check with him, and he immediately put on the brakes to the whole plan. I changed some of the stuff on the work order and the estimate did not decrease by much, so then I faxed the work order to Lester and he beat them by a mile. I took it in and the problems that I had been told I had were not problems and actually looked like they had been created by the previous shop to look bad! Lester's saved me at least $600. I have learned my lesson. Only go to Lester.

Five Star Service Mechanic!
Finding a good mechanic that is honest and does the job right is like finding a needle in the haystack! Not to mention one that can work on classic cars! I took my '67 Nova to Lester's, I knew right away that I found my last mechanic. I was treated with respect and the job was done right. I highly recommend Lester's Shop to all my friends and family. FIVE STARS!!!!

Good 'Ol Car Boys
They will be straight up with you here. Even as a female taking your car in. Lester will tell you what he suggests and what you really need, and what sort of repair can wait. Good 'ol honest car boys. The only place I take my car. Including my '69 Dodge Charger in the past.

Lester's was recommended to me after having several bad encounters with other automotive repair shops. I have done business with him over the past several years, and have always been pleased with the cost and quality of the work that he has done.
