The Blue Onion is probably the best restaurant in McAllen, Texas, but that's not really saying a lot. It's the rare place in the RGV where you can get food that is somewhat fresh and tasty. Not much by way of innovation, but there are some interesting mixes of Mediterannean and sort of Tex Mexy cuisine on this menu. Good... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and it's usually okay. On this particular day there was a hair, I'm guessing from the cooks beard on the plate under the wrap I had ordered. Disgusting ! The women's bathroom is also dirty.

Kept it simple for lunch today, just had a soup and salad with some colleagues. I had the soup of the day which was a type of chili prepared with green chilies. It had a great tex-mex flavor and was loaded with spice and ingredients-just right in my book. The salad was fresh and bright, with just the right compliment... More

Each of us ordered something different so we could sample each others. The Blue Onion flatbread which is their signature dish, boasts of roasted garlic and onion. Very Tasty. We also tasted the grilled veg with pesto which needed salt or a cheese. The all meat offering was good. The chicken pest was also ordered and was good. Portion size... More

Was craving a great salad for dinner after heavy Mexican lunch. We pulled in the parking lot of one of many shopping centers and thought... blah.... when we arrived the greeting was quick and the staff super friendly. The ice tea was dark and strong (unlike our lunch iced tea weak). We all ordered salads and found that the grilled... More

Was in the area for business and went to dinner here with our clients. This location had a really good bottled beer selection. The food was amazing. I order a Calzone and was a little worried that there would be too much sauce or dough. When I got my food I was really surprised. Very Little sauce on the inside... More

The Blue Onion is a quaint spot with super fresh salads, amazing dips to enjoy with their homemade flatbread, sandwiches, and pizzas. Everything is made with high-quality ingredients. Prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly and helpful. Great place for a date or couple's night out. Small but well-chosen beer and wine list.
