This a nice place to spend time with your family or friends, enjoy some drinks and taste delicious food. I recommend the tuna ceviche. No reservations for the patio on weekends.

Came here for lunch before leaving McAllen after a week of work in Reynosa. I order the salmon. It was pretty good. service was attentive. The menu include steaks and seafood, Mexican food, pizzas and calzones cooked in a unique wood fired oven, and burgers that are delicious. Their appetizers are so good.

The Republic has great food, awesome service, delicious cocktails but it is very popular and can get very noisy, If you want a romantic night out you may want to pick another restaurant but if you want good food and a good time this is the place to go. Can't recommend one dish because everything is delicious

I had a Mexican calzone that was delicious. The bar has an amazing tequila selection, and the bartender as well as the manager were very pleased to help educate me on selecting a nice top tier tequila to try.

I did not really have a meal just a lot of fantastic Appetizers and drinks. Very attractive crowed and the atmosphere was totally not what i expected in McAllen. Very Texan but with an very ampule splash of sophistication and good taste. Very creative interior. The food, drinks and service makes it a complete package.

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times during business in McAllen. They have a pretty good menu. Their ahi tuna salad is very yummy. Their bar scene is pretty good. Service and prices are decent. It is usually crowded but it is a big restaurant and their outdoor patio is very pleasant. Would recommend.
