Whenever we come to the Rio Grand Valley, Furr's, in McAllen, is one of our "go to" spots which we never fail to visit. Lots of restaurants in the city have a solid clientele but Furr's seems to have one of the most regular. We have been visiting it for more than a decade, sometimes even driving... read more

This place has inattentive wait staff. Two waitresses stood and chatted while I ate half my plate of food before asking me for my drink preference. Several of the food item selections were empty or near empty. The service here exemplifies the sluggish service standards of the area.

We enjoy taking our friends here to eat. They can find anything they want and there is always plenty of it. We especially enjoy the millionaire pie and the pecan pie. I like the salad bar too.

Loved the food. Everything was cooked to perfection! So many pies to choose from. It is very easy to over eat. Check the plate to make sure it is clean, as the dishwasher seems to be inefficient. Very busy.

It is an American food buffet. Tons of kids running around. It reminded me of ants at a picnic everyone jumping from place to place no order. Most of the food bins had a few items left, some empty and the unpopular full. It was 13 a person plus tax. I doubt if I would go back.

Lots of other luncheon meat options. Standard salad bar, but I wanted more fresh veggies, lightly cooked veggies and fresh fruit. Mashed potatoes appeared a bit sloppy. Home fries with onions looked... More

I really don't know why people like this place. It used to be good before it turned into a buffet. The food tastes processed. The place is extremely cramped. They have like 1 waitress taking care of half the place so it's close to impossible to get a refill on your drink. If you go with a party of six... More
