In two occasions I suffered food intoxication in this restaurant, in one I ate a Plate of Ribeye (I remember that the steak probably was old because it did not had any flavor), and in another occasion I ate a Shrimp plate. In both occasions after eating there I could not sleep, all night, trowing up, stomach ache and with... More

This is one of the few restaurants that has consistently grown over the past decades in McAllen. With its current layout, you can have an upscale anniversary dinner inside the wine cellar, a private party in a beautiful room behind the bar, a meal on an outdoor patio next to a fireplace, or simply eat in an upscale setting next...

I had the New York strip steak and it was good. I'm not sure what they were trying to do with the beans and corn with a flower on top. The flower did not taste so good and the portion was meager. The meal came with a salad and a basket of bread too. I went to Texas Roadhouse tonight... More

We've been going to Santa Fe since we moved here in 1999 and it was really the only "fine dining" in town. The service is among the best in the Valley, the decor is romantic and the food is great. More restaurants have opened in McAllen now and in someways have surpassed the food (Pappadeux is the best steak in... More

Great food with a good selection of other food other than steak. The stuffed quail was to die for with the flavors. Husband had the chicken zia that he loved. We started with the cheese platter that was an excellent selection of cheeses. Warning, you cannot eat in the main restaurant if you have on shorts (even in hot summer).... More
