I frequently travel to McAllen for business but just had my first meal at the Patio on Guerra. It is without a doubt my new favorite in McAllen. The service was very good, atmosphere first rate and best of all the food was fantastic. The ceviche and bacon rapped scallops appetizers were great and the Parmesan Crusted Snapper entree was...

This place is awesome, I just feel I am somewhere else when I am here. Everything is good, great bar and wine selection. I traveled half the world, been in many restaurants, but every time I come here I feel excited and like I rather be no other restaurant on earth at the moment. Is that good!!!

The food was great and the atmosphere was very nice. There was live music and they also have a patio area. The restaurant is located on 17th street where there are various nightclubs and bars. I loved that I was able to have dinner and then afterwards just walk to club.

We dined here one evening early. We had thought it was more informal than it was (felt a little underdressed). The tables were beautifully set with white table clothes. We started with the Ceviche which was wonderful (tilapia marinated in citrus, pepper, oregano, tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños and served with chips and crackers). I had Shrimp Three Ways--2 each cooked... More

I've been to The Patio on Guerra four times and had a five star experience each time. When visiting McAllen, The Patio has been one of my top choices to have business dinners. The steaks (small filet) are excellent and sides are tasty. The ambiance is sophisticated but relaxed, and tasteful decor. I've never been embarrassed for selecting this location... More

Old world charm in a new world setting. Great food choices, excellent setting, wonderful staff. If Ruben is available ask for him as your waiter. Great service. The fish selection is outstanding, we had the Halibut which was cooked to perfection. The presentation is outstanding and is surpassed by the quality of the meal. Be sure to try the Calamari...

Went to this restaurant for dinner one night while in McAllen with a colleague. Good restaurant, with nice options. I had a grilled pork chop with house potatoes and it came with a salad included. For dessert I had the crime brûlée. Overall a nice restaurant for fine dining.

Went there for Happy Hour only to discover this place doesn't have a Happy Hour. The lobster roll is fantastic although the portion is a bit small. The tapas, quail and tuna starters were all very good! The house Pinot Noir was good. The service was extremely fast! Each small plate I ordered arrived within minutes, had nice presentation and...
