“My Daughter's Favorite Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

The food is great with many choices of entres. Steak is of course the specialty. There is also chicken and seafood. I normally get the shrimp, which is very good. The rest of my family get the steaks. It has great atmosphere and I would highly recommend the Santa Fe. Warning it is expensive but worth it.

“Good restaurant for fine dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Went to this restaurant with a colleague while in a business trip to McAllen. I had a filet mignon with asparagus and crab meat on top of the steak. Very good steak, with good flavor and very tender. Overall, very good meal.

“Great steakhouse and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

I ways like to go to Santa feel to eat dinner. It is pricey so cannot do it often. I usually order the prime rib. It has good flavor. For desert they have good bread pudding.

“Great dinner meeting venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

I had a dinner program for about 20 so we got our own room with 2 waiters. Everyone had great drinks and when the appetizers ran out they quickly got more. The salads and entrees were served quietly and efficiently during the presentation. Dessert service was a little slow but overall great service and process.
As far as the food the steaks were good not great and the bacon wraps were not very lean.
Clearly the service and atmosphere are the lure, not the quality of the food.
