When Texas defines marriage being between a man and a flat bread sandwich I am proposing. I had dental work in Mexico so I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express which is behind The Blue Onion. Everything on the menu you will not find at other restaurants. I had the Pesto Shrimp on French Bread. Wonderful. Black bean salad was... More

Great Grill Chicken Salad I enjoy having this salad every time I go there I highly recommend it. I have had other items which were well done and enjoyed. Also try their home made soups like the chill is one of the best I have had. Fyi I don't like salads but I find myself craving this one so enjoy.

If fresh, high quality food is what you're looking for, then the Blue Onion is for you. They make all food in house, including their salad dressings. The pizza sauce is a complex blend of roasted tomatoes and onions with just a little kick. The pizza crust is that special kind with the perfect combination of crispy and soft. And... More

(This review concerns the location in Weslaco, Texas) I sometimes take my patients to The Blue Onion restaurant in Weslaco, Texas after their visits to Stetic Implant & Dental Centers. At Stetic we try to provide excellent customer care and great value--the very same attributes I find at Blue Onion. The staff is generally friendly and accommodating, the food hot... More

I found this place by searching online for someone who served rare Dogfish Head beer. Not only did they have it, they brought in a keg of one of Americas rarest craft beers (Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA). After thoroughly enjoying my brew, my wife and I each ordered a pizza along with the flatbread dip sampler. We were more... More

I visited once and did not return. It is nothing like the one in McAllen. We ordered a pizza, but the Service was very slow for a Sunday. Especially when it was near empty. I hope this issue has been resolved by now.

On our 2nd night in town, we tried the BO based on some of our party having a positive experience 4 years ago....we were not disappointed. The sampler appetizer with 3 spreads & flatbread supported 6 dinner guests nicely until our entrees arrived. I particularly liked the red pepper spread but the artichoke and roasted garlic spreads picked by others... More

Stopped by for lunch based on previous reviews. ordered a grilled chicken salad. the chicken was probably pre-cooked (VERY DRY), the salad consisted of lettuce, sunflower seeds and more lettuce. not much of a salad. disappointing at best.

I've been to the Blue Onion in Weslaco on weekdays, but this was my first Sunday experience. I am from out of town, so don't have too many opportunities to dine in the Valley, so this was a little bit of a disappointment. The service was really slow, and the wait person spoke to my boyfriend like he was not... More
