Good food and beer

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.

I went to the Blue Onion with some colleagues while traveling through town on business. What a find! From the minute I stepped into the place I encountered the most incredible aromas! I enjoyed the shrimp al pastor. I highly recommend it! They have a wonderful selection homemade dips. One of my colleagues ordered a dip sampler which came with... More

This is one of our go to restaurants whenever we are in Weslaco. Their wraps are very delicious. My husband usually gets the fajita and I get the pastor. We share a salad since they are a very generous size. As far as desserts, I couldn't tell you. There is never any room for dessert. LOL

Stopped in for a late lunch, and ordered a pizza. The crust was thin and crispy, and the ingredients were fresh. Unfortunately they didn't have any blueberry bread pudding- which had been highly recommended... Maybe next time!

Went on a Friday for lunch. Very pleasant service. I had an unusual vegetarian pizza that was delightfully unique and generously large for one. My friend and I shared a side salad that was huge and extremely good, topped off with sunflower seeds. She had a fish soup as well that was excellent. Very nice inside. Very reasonalbe prices too.

We went for lunch with two other couples and really enjoyed it. The seasoning on the beef was delicious. It was very clean and the service was very good. We have eaten there several times and it has always been great

Second time visit. Wife had their Sunday soup special, tortilla soup and it was really good. I had the fajita beef flatbread sandwich and the meat was tender and flavorful. Will return when back in valley.
