Patio on Guerra has it all. Good Food, great service and the best scenery in Town. Prices are a little bit high but at the end, it's worth it! Great wine selection! If you're celebrating any occasion and you want it to be fancy, this is the place. It would be better if you make a reservation, especially on weekends.

I have visited twice this week. Every bite was delicious. The live guitar was very nice. The interior is appealing. The portions are not small. The price is very reasonable. The servers are attentive. If I am ever in McAllen again I will eat here again.

Can't say enough about this restaurant. Family owned by the Guerra family, it's not only a beautiful place to eat but the food is wonderful.

My husband & I celebrated our 33rd anniversary there for the first time. It is an amazing place with excellent service and food. It is very romantic and historic building with great entertainment. It is a real gem in the middle of Old historic McAllen.

The restaurant is just beautiful as is the Patio area. The service was flawless. (We ate an early dinner on St Patrick's Day.) The food- absolutely amazing and the portions were more than generous. I highly recommend the Tuna Tartare Tower and the Chilean Sea Bass in red curry sauce is a must!!!!

I had a great time with some colleagues for dinner here. I wanted something traditional to Texas and had the steak. I did feel the portion was kind of small but then maybe it was because I was hungry. The service was great and the food also tasted nice. Great place in all
