We visited to take advantage of the Father's Day prime rib special and were so impressed by the service. The staff was so helpful and eager to help. Everything was excellent from our table being ready on time, calling to confirm our arrival to our departure.

About the restaurant
Overlooking North McAllen, TOLOA's rooftop space acts as a studio for creating social experiences around food and drink. A list of seasonally curated cocktails act as an accessory to the open-air patio and lounge from sunset to late night. The food offered focuses on Modern Mexican eatery and is designed to either be shared, provide a small bite, or be ordered as a multi-course dinner. TOLOA is a new way to indulge and be social.

Elegant aroma with a new view. Food was delicious but would classify the atmosphere as a bit more on the drinking side. Still an amazing experience definitely going back.
