Amazing Salads and Tea

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

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

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

This place was great, hard to see from the street but worth turning around for. It smells delicious as you walk thru the door and it is. Pizza, flat bread wraps, salads and po'boys were being served up by friendly servers in an upbeat, casual atmosphere. The French bread was especially fresh and "crusty". I truly enjoyed the grilled vegetable... More

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 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.

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
