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.

I went here for a casual lunch, it was okay but nothing great. I know other people seem to really like the place. I had the saled and hummus, but it was somthing I could have made at home.

Good take on Greek style food. Big salads and gyros. Have not had a had item off the menu yet. Usually go for lunch, but bar looks like it could be fun.
