Good place for a bar/restaurant/chain

The food was pretty good and prices were ok. The beer selection is pretty good and a place to watch sports and eat/hang out if you are a sports fan and don't want the typical bar scene.

Spent an afternoon here watching an NFL game. Good table in front of HD TV. Had several appetizers during the game and some good beers too.

We are working in McAllen and have been here for a week and already eaten at BJ's Brewery twice because it was so good the first time. The menu is very diverse, and they have a huge selection of fresh brews, and we started with a pitcher that was a mixture of beer and cider. Very delicious. We had the... More

The service was stellar and the food is always good. I love their atmosphere. You can talk and watch the sports channels without the threat of a headache upon leaving. Staff is friendly and helpful

Was in the area for business and stopped in here for dinner and a beer. Beer selection was so so, but my food was really good. I had the Mediterranean Chicken Tacos and a wedge salad. If I'm ever in the area I'll be sure to stop in again.

We all ordered salmon and they were very good. My almost 8 OZ salmon was only $16 and it was cooked right. It was not overcooked and it was juicy inside. Great food, great service and great price. The place was clean. The drink selection is very good, and the food arrived quickly. The food was done exactly as we... More

I sat in the bar and enjoyed watching the World Cup on a giant TV right over the bar. The atmosphere was very good and my server was very friendly. I ordered a few appetizers and they were fantastic! The drinks were scrumptious! I would stop there again when back in McAllen.

Yes, this is a chain restaurant but our experience was very good. The french dip sandwich I had was really tasty as was the Bloody Mary. My husband said the beer was good, everyone at the table was satisfied with the food and the server was quick, friendly and accommodating. We even ordered some food to go and it went... More

Stopped here with a coworker for dinner while on business in the McAllen area recently. It was very busy but we were quickly seated and greeted by our server. I ordered shrimp tacos, my coworker ordered a chicken dish, and both of us had one of their craft beers. We received our drinks and food in a reasonable time. My... More

Friends and I ate lunch here on their recommendation. The food was excellent bar food. I had a french dip that actually had pink meat and an au jus that wasn't too salty. The hamburgers were good as was the barbeque platter. We usually avoid chains but won't hesitate to go here if we are again in a city with... More
