Greaat place for business lunch.

The food from the salads to the main entrees were all very good. I took 5 associates for lunch and the space and atmosphere was perfect for us to talk and discuss everyday things. very relaxing and we were not rushed.

I was expecting more of this restaurant due the "reviews and ratings". The food is good, by saying that the restaurant it's just OK doesn't mean it is bad. BTW, the variety of craftbeer is very good.

The Blue Onion has a variety of salads, soups, pizzas and wraps. Their flatbread is made fresh and is light and delicious. Soups are very hearty, full of flavor. Service is very fast and the staff is very friendly. We got hooked on their food when they started in a small stip mall in Weslaco and have kept going back... More

This restaurant started small in Weslaco, Tx. Due to need for more space they built a larger restaurant at a new location. It has now expanded to McAllen and Mission. The same high quality of food and attentive servers has followed to the new locations. Out of town guests who are familiar with this Valley treasure, go back when visiting... More

Who knew that a quick lunch would be one of the most memorable meals of a long trip? We stopped at the Blue Onion on our way out of town, the froggy green walls and floors almost discouraged me utterly, but we were in a hurry and ordered. Service was very fast, friendly without being intrusive. Our meals arrived quickly.... More

First time I had eaten at Blue Onion. Lots of healthy choices and food presented well. I had a avocado/chicken wrap, which was served on their homemade flat bread and it was excellent. Atmosphere had a light and airy feel. The staff were very helpful and service was quick and friendly. I would stop there again.

The Blue Onion in McAllen is smaller and more quaint than the one in Weslaco or the one in Mission TX. The McAllen Blue Onion serves the best pizza in town! The margarita with pepperoni is my favorite. Instead of pizza sauce, they use real tomatoes. They also have a wonderful flatbread and hummus! On Fridays only, they serve a... More

The Blue Onion 2 in McAllen TX was a great choice for a casual, well prepared meal. This (mostly) Mediterranean restaurant isn't large, but bright, unusual artwork and the friendly reception made us feel welcome immediately. Our appetizer of warm flatbread, drizzled with olive oil and cut into dipping strips was perfectly paired with three excellent dips; Roasted Red Pepper,... More

I simply love this place. I have been here about 5 times just because I don't live in McAllen. I adore their roasted garlic appetizer with goat cheese and home made pita bread. It is out of control. They have daily specials and all of them has been tastier than the last one. They make their own pizza dough and... More
