When you want something different and healthy, this is the place in the mid-valley. The salads are ample and there's a different healthy soup every day. The sandwiches are filling and they have home made potatoe chips. I definitely recommend. Even the pizzas looked delicious.

Love going for lunch because of their specials! Fajita salad and chili soup are amazing and great priced Their pizzas and gyros are also very good and filling I always order their shroom flatbread and it never disappoints. The roasted garlic and olive oil "secret sauce" is to die for👍🏼

We tried the Blue Onion for supper and enjoyed it. The atmosphere leans towards the hip and funky side. The service was very good; our waitress was friendly and helpful. We tried two of the wraps: pesto chicken and the gyro. The chicken was good but the lamb was excellent. We will definitely go back.

Food was excellent and the service was great, highly recommend it if you're in town for lunch. Everything on the menu is excellent, but I recommend the Pecan Smoked Fajita Wrap.

Get the dip sampler... So good! Artichoke dip was amazing. My husband and I also got a flatbread sandwich to share w/2 sides. So much food! Could have just had the dips. Nice staff. A lot of garlic on the menu but good food

This is one my favorite restaurants in the Rio Grande Valley. Love the hummus and the roasted red pepper dip. My husband likes the artichoke dip. The flat bread is awesome.

Thank Teach78
