Love to eat at this place whenever I am in town. Though I keep missing the pork green chili which I've only had the chance to taste once and it was soo delicious, I wanted more. It's a hot seller at this place and goes fast. But there are other great items on the menu that are really good. I... More

This is truly an RGV hidden gem. The menu is fresh, healthy and very flavorful. The salads are plentiful and dressing is always house made. Pizzas--go for a unique topping. Don't order your usual pepperoni....this is gourmet pizza. Try the fajita pizza, the shrimp, or margarita pizza. And always start off with the artichoke dip appetizer it's a must. Bar... More

I came here for a meeting of the Rio Grande Valley Secular Society. I ordered a fajita wrap, which, as the title of the review says, was good, not great. My total bill was $11.14 with tax and I left a $2.00 tip for the server.

Great local place to grab a handmade pizza or healthy salad. Really good selection of craft and microbrews plus a bartender that knows all about them. The fajita salad and the chicken pesto pizza are our favorite... but then there are the nachos suizas or the lunch special (available at night if you ask).

This used to be my favorite restaurant. however i went there recently, and i ordered a pizza. This pizza had waaaaaay too much oil!!! There was a freaking puddle of oil in the middle of the pizza. I didn't bother complaining because the waitress never came by to ask me if i was doing okay. How can the cooks/chef in... More

This place was around corner from where I stayed on my business trip. I enjoyed the food. Pizza was real good and the salad was amazing. Kept clean and managed well.

Generous portions, we always end up with the burger, it's so good most of the time we are afraid to try anything else.

We like to eat at the Blue Onion whenever we are anywhere near Weslaco. I love the grilled flatbread and usually order a dip sampler with flatbread. The dips are all delicious, but the goat cheese, hummus and the cajun shrimp are my favorites. Each day, you can get a different meal in a bowl; I like them all, too,... More
