Generous portions, we always end up with the burger, it's so good most of the time we are afraid to try anything else.

We like to eat at the Blue Onion whenever we are anywhere near Weslaco. I love the grilled flatbread and usually order a dip sampler with flatbread. The dips are all delicious, but the goat cheese, hummus and the cajun shrimp are my favorites. Each day, you can get a different meal in a bowl; I like them all, too,... More

The food is quite good. Portions were adequate. Some items on the menus are quite different, but interesting and very tasty.

Great selection of Beers, super friendly and knowledgeable staff. I was somewhat disappointed by the salad i had selected. Lots of lettuce and very little of anything else.

We've eaten here a couple of times and the food is always fresh and hot. Most recently I enjoyed the 'Shrooms Flatbread'. Wow, that was fantastic. We ordered margaritas and they were great. When the bill came, we were shocked to see they were only $3! Next time we're in Weslaco, we'll be back.

On fridays, they have a Beef Stew that is wonderful. Add a Salad to make the lunch special and you can't go wrong. My grandkids love the cheese pizza. They have wraps with every filling combination imaginable. Each day has a different soup, and they have large number of pizzas, appetizers and even a burger and fries, if you are... More

Everything I've tried here, I've loved. My favorite so far is the pecan smoked fajita salad with fiesta ranch. The meat is so tender and tasty! The pizzas are also really good. I like that they will deliver to your room if you stay at the Holiday Inn right next door - so convenient! They also have a drive thru... More

We stopped for lunch late as they were out of the special of the day. No worries as the rest of the menu was great. Had the artichoke dip with flat bread and it was delicious. Not really a dip but a spread to put on really good flat bread. Come early for the daily special. The patty melt was... More

We were staying next door at the Holiday Inn Express and the people at the front desk told us to try Blue Onion. Yea, walking distant, so you can drink. So good, that on our return trip we stayed at the HI Ex. again, just so we could eat dinner at the Blue Onion one more time. I do not... More
