Restaurants

There are many restaurants across the RGV area, new to the McAllen Mission area, is the entire zone around the McAllen Convention Center- several restaurants from PF Changs, to the more local Kumori Sushi exist here alongside our more traditional Tex-Mex or RGV food. Local dining stands are sometimes small, with hamburgers and traditional tacos around (a normal order is 6 small format tacos).

On South Padre Island, Blackbeards has been serving up half pound burgers, shrimp and even steaks for more than 30 years! the back room is the original restaurant seating area. The Island has been recovering from Hurricane Dolly (2008) and from the own bridge collapse in 2001 (a barge hit it). There are many places to eat at the Island, from Beach side to Bay-side; many places on the bay are excellent spots for sunset watching.

Many people enjoy a beverage while watching the sun set. Pelicans Wharf is one such spot, as is 202, Louie’s backyard, and many more. By the time you arrive, there could be a new one you should try out.

The food options extend to both sides of the border: just be sure to bring your passport. Garcias, Arturo’s, La Mansion, La Fogata, and many other high service food options are just across the border, or for the adventurous, several Calle de Taco options are out there.

Many of the great local places have grown out of walk up stands- to full service places and even adding on rooms for special events like weddings and such. One is Trevino’s in Edinburg (north of the Courthouse on Business 281). Even in the last 14 years, it has expanded twice.
La Jaiba Shrimp House has several locations around the Edinburg area. There are also several new places on North 10th in McAllen as you approach the Trenton cross street. Many of these are being influenced by new chefs, trying out new concepts. The churn rate has been high, so by the time you eat out they will be very good or very new.
