Freaking fabulous

My husband and I came here for lunch. We were staying at the Holiday Inn next door and got a free appetizer for being guests there. We figured we'd give it a shot.

Owners work at the place. They care about ingredients. They respond to constructive criticism. Best salads in the valley, and I never eat salad. Pizzas are as good as any west coast type thin crust outside LA. Beer and cocktail selection very good. Pricing very fair. A gem of the mid valley.

They have a wonderful menu, a welcome change as Weslaco has a lot of franchise restaurants with the same old offerings. Their salads looked marvelous but with husband along we had to try the pizza because of the other reviews and we were not disappointed. It was a flaky thin crust and very good. They also are like a mini... More

Made our first visit to the Blue Onion recently. This is our 6th year to winter in the Rio Grande Valley. This restaurant made it to the top of our list. Extensive menu - excellent food & service.

i am a Winter Texan and miss the pizza I grew up on up north. Then we discovered the Blue Onion--awesome pizza fixed any way I want and just as good as home. Their frozen margaritas are HUGE and good--but big enough for 2.

Tired of the chain look whether sports-themed or western? The Blue Onion won't disappoint you. While waiting for your food, check the original artwork displayed. The extensive menu provided lots of options for my 7 lunch companions and me. Everyone's order was correct, even the special request,and all were satisfied with the portion sizes.(Salads were huge!) Plenty of parking at... More

My husband and I discovered this spot several years ago and we return when we are in the area. A nice place to grab a beer and a sandwich. The have several vegetarian options but could do with a few more. The quality and service are consistent. Overall a good value.

The Blue Onion is a great place to go for healthy, tasty food and great beer selection. A funky and groovy vibe that will appeal to the hippie in you. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere with good prices. I really love this place!!
