Latin American | McAllen, McAllen

Food was excellent. Disappointed that they don't have cocktails here only beer and wine although they do make a "wine cocktail" which is good but pricey at $11. Not on the menu but for $25 you can get a platter of all the apps which are all excellent so that and share a main course is enough for two if you want to try a lot without breaking the bank. More

We will definitely be coming back for special occasions in the near future! More

Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.More

The food was very good and the ambiance is one of those that takes one outside the valley. The staff was very friendly and attentive. More

Mexican | McAllen, McAllen

This place was so friendly to everyone. It seemed like everyone knew everyone...there are regulars who go every Thursday night to hear Tres En Punto, and that was amazing. It is a comfortable place to be as the service is excellent. Of course, the best part of the night is listening to the fantastic music of the best trio in RGV, Tres en Punto. Their harmony and unique renditions of classic Mexican songs are a pleasure to hear. Their repertoire of songs goes from the classic to musci from other countries such as Cuba, Argentina, Colombia. This is quite entertaining. I will be returning and taking other friends to experience this unique place. The food is the traditional Mexican fare....and there was even a woman who walked in with long stem roses to sell, just like you see in Mexico. This place transports you to another place which is happy and entertaining. More

Pollo Palenque is the perfect meal to share with friends and family, and a simple way to eat lighter. Our chicken is marinated in real citrus fruit juices, then seasoned and grilled to perfection by our grill masters. Because our chicken is grilled and never fried, it's also the healthier choice! And if that wasn't enough, our always-fresh salsa bar, handmade corn or flour tortillas, and aguas frescas are sure to make your meal unlike anything you've had before. Enjoy!More

Discover McAllen

McAllen might not be one of the most well-known cities in Texas, but its restaurant scene is surprisingly diverse while still holding that Texan flair for large portions and bold flavors. As one might expect, it's a town that understands meat. Steakhouses and Tex-Mex restaurants dominate the imaginations of both locals and critics, and they make up for a lack of elegance with a practiced understanding of how to handle the grill. That's not to say you won't find fine dining in the city of McAllen. If you're looking for a modernist, seafood-inspired spin on Japanese cuisine, a traditionally sumptuous Italian feast, or an upscale take on Cajun cuisine, you'll find something to love in McAllen. Many restaurants stock their kitchens with fresh meat and produce direct from the local farmers market.
