I ear here a lot because I like the variety. I especially like to have the three appetizer choice. However their pizzas, salads and daily specials are all great. There are two locations and they have the same menu.

We had dinner at the Blue Onion in McAllen, the day after a wonderful lunch at their Weslaco location. We had the Greens salad, a veggie pizza, tiramisu and key lime pie. Loved the mini dessert cups - perfect serving size. The salad was incredibly tasty - the greens don't taste as good as this at any store that I... More

We loved the pizza. It is thin crust and fresh ingredients. Tasted great. We also liked the Shroom & Roasted Garlic wrap. The service was excellent and friendly.

I love, love, love Blue Onion. The menu has a little Southwest flare and its fresh and delicious. There salads are filling ( and are served with flat bread), their flatbreads are great and they have great lunch specials. If you are very hungry, I can recommend the hummus as the appetizer, it is very good. My favorite side dish... More

I would come back here just for the hot freshly baked flat bread and garlic goat cheese dip! Lots of diversity on the menu.

When we go here we enjoy the jalapeno fajita pizza. I would only recommend a larger or better children's menu.

The salads are so fresh and flavorful. I prefer the salad with half a sandwich and a tea. By no means is this a small meal. They have many other options and a nice ambiance

I visited with some new coworkers as a meet and greet over food and beverages. We had a dip sampler (humus, shrimp in cream sauce, & mushrooms). The flat bread was amazing. All the ingredients were made in house. Get the shrimp! Cooked to perfection. I tried a salad with fajita steak. Wonderful! My friends enjoyed the IPA, but they... More
