McAllen / RGV

Recommended Posts

Funny this came up, because I was just there last week for work. Definitely Delias. Those tamales are life-changing. I liked Palenque Grill, but I wasn't blown away. Salt on Main St was really, really good. Probably the best meal I had when I was down there.

Delia's for tamales

Ybarra's is 100x better.  We used to get and bring back Delia's then we discovered this place.  I highly recommend you give them a try.   Also in Weslaco.

Will add Milano's (Italian) Arturo's in Weslaco.  Blue Onion was a solid rec too. All right off the highway too.

I was about to say drive to the beach for Dirty Al's but isn't there one in McAllen?

Best tacos are always at some gas station 

When I was working down there,  the best tacos were from the vendors who would stop by your office at 9:30 with the tacos in a cooler.

They had the Doordash thing figured out long before the tech world got into the act.   Pinche Mexicanos!    LMAO!!!!!!!!

Someone should’ve bat signaled me here, damn. All great recs given out. I’d add sunrise cafe in Weslaco and any Wing Barn, for wings. 

El Pato kind of sucks in my opinion. 

Margos in Weslaco has the best raspas in the RGV. The strawberry delight, holy fuck

For pizza I actually like Formacio in Mercedes more than mamma mia.

Yeah in Harlingen Vegas & Pepe’s are staples, smoke is decent BBQ, but goddamn that Applebees. I want to cry everytime I go back and see it, reminds me of childhood.
