Great selection of wines. Met the manager Eric & he expressed his support of Texas food, brews & Texas wines & is looking forward to putting more Texas wines on his wine list. Very nice menu reasonably priced. Outstanding service. Very convenient location.

The menu had a great selection of unique, fresh, and interesting items! I tried the duck and it was good. The drink selection was great as well. After reading some of the reviews, I decided to try the tincho and I'm glad I did. Nice combination of sweet and citrusy. The strawberry Bellini was also great (sweet but not too... More

My fiance surprised me with an amazing dinner here for our one year anniversary. I have to say, it's one of the most unique and delicious restaurants in the Rio Grande Valley. We loved absolutely everything about the restaurant including the food, cheese platters, champagne and the wonderful ambience. I can't wait to go there again!

A friend and I went here for lunch. Not impressed! Very small amt. of wine for a very high price. The food was expensive and very average. Would not go here again.

Always reliable. McAllen ranch burger and Yahweh salad are favorites. Tincho to drink can't be beat. Opentable best way to get a table. Gets busy. Half price on bottles of wine if train goes by.

My wife & I went for Valentines's dinner. The wait staff is super friendly and the owner comes by to check how things are going. Food was delicious, service was impeccable, and vibe was on point! Definitely a nice place to take a special someone!

Located downtown in Mcallen you will find House of Wine. A great place for lunch or dinner. We were there this evening and the food was wonderful, but the wait staff was even better. So attentive and informative. The Calamari was perfect and cooked to perfection over a bed of flash fried spinach. I had the Pork burger which was... More

Service is GREAT! Menu has good variety. Chef is excellent and the presentatichief the dishes are beautiful. Steak,pastas,chicken plus more. Beer and wine only. Dressy and casual for dress code. A little pricey but not too bad. If its a Friday or Saturday go early it gets packed. Music on Friday and Saturday after 9.

Thank Rita R
