P. F. Chang’s in McAllen, TX

5

Drive by P. F. Chang’s in McAllen on any given weekend, and you’re likely to see an hour long line every time.  Consequently, I expected the place to be pretty amazing, the way that a bulldog on a skateboard is pretty amazing.  Ya know, a little wow factor.  Otherwise, what the hell is everybody waiting for?

But instead of wow, I got hmm… that was ok(more…)

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse in McAllen, TX

I really wanted to like BJ’s in McAllen since it’s right down the road from my house, and the line at P.F. Chang’s is goddamn ridiculous.  The restaurant itself is nice enough with all the charm of your typical contemporary corporate owned American restaurant.  Think Applebee’s with better interior design.

The seating time was very reasonable, and the table service was good.  The food, however…sigh… (more…)

Suite 701

Samantha brings us this report from the McAllen nightlife scene:

Despite the horrible tan I got over the 4th of July, I brushed it off and went to SUITE 701 last night (Friday) for the first time and I have to say I was quite impressed. It’s a lounge where the comfort level was sky high, the music was intense, the bartenders were outstanding, and the crowd was in good shape. (more…)

Kokos Uptown Restaurant

Koko’s Uptown is the prettier upscale version of their popular downtown restaurant with exactly the same food. This is a good thing.

In fact when I compare enchilada plates at other restaurants, Koko’s is always my point of reference. So far, Koko’s is still on top, and I eat a lot of enchiladas.

Service is excellent, bordering on amazing, food portions are generous, and the prices are very reasonable.

Another bonus: Even when it’s busy, parking is good.

Cons
None (except that they’re not open 24 hours and located in my front yard).

Miscellaneous
There is no bar but they do serve alcoholic bevarages. This may be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your preferences.
