El Rancho Grande Restaurant

Reviewed By Richard S - RGV

My wife and I dropped in at El Rancho Grande Restaurant in San Juan, Texas. We were not super hungry, so we shared a Panchos Mazatlan Plate. The plate was very generously served. Lots of grilled Fajita strips and plenty of cheese and toasted tortilla chips. The Jalapeno and onions can be had on top or on the side. This was a very enjoyable meal. We even had a to go box for the left overs. I would highly recommend this place. It is one of our favorites on our list.

What a GREAT restaurant! Located in an historic building and beautifully restored. The food could not be better. Dinner for our anniversary........table had a card indicating it was our anniversary with glitter sprinkled around. From the hostess to the waiter to the other staff the service was very attentive but not overbearing. We ordered the mushroom stuffed with lobster as an appetizer. The word to describe it is divine. Served with crackers but it is also delicious with the warm bread they serve. We both opted for the 10 ounce lobster tail and they were cooked to perfection. A salad and rice for my wife and soup and potatoes for me made for a complete meal. The chef prepared a dessert plate with their million dollar pie on it. The plate wished us a Happy Anniversary and included our names. Some would say the restaurant is too expensive but I would say that it is the perfect place for a special occasion. When we are back this way we will certainly return for another meal!

Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Reviewed By Bernadetteere - Texas

This is a beautiful restaurant. The staff are all very nice and accomodating. The food on the otherhand? My fried shrimp was just supposed to be regular fried shrimp but this was very spicy. It would have been nice if someone had told me about that earlier. At $25. for 12 small and medium sized shrimp it wasn’t cheap either. Hubby got the soft-crab @ 2 for $25. They were very small too; and they’d been flattened beyond recognition. Our server was young and new, we were his first customers, so I didn’t want to upset him, but he got the order wrong and took ages to serve/return.

Manjar Bakery

Reviewed By Sarracenia - Norman, Oklahoma

The pastries were pretty good,perhaps even better than some I have bought in bakeries in Mexico. Tamales pretty good, not as big as the ones I have seen in Mexico, but pretty good. On weekends they have barbacoa (a meat dish that is popular in Mexico, especially eaten on weekends). Nice cashier, not sure about her English since we spoke Spanish. I would visit again. They also sell fresh corn tortillas.

We eat here often. All the choices are good. My wife prefers the half chicken and I like the Turkey. Sausage with Jalapeno I nice and spicy. All the meats are smoked just the right amount. The Rudy's spicy Barbecue sauce is outstanding.

It's not a secret anymore these tamales are insanely good. Try them all you won't be disappointed. My favorite are beef, and the Veracruzanos.During the HOLIDAYS order a couple days in advance! To avoid waiting in line for 1-2 hours. I capitalized holidays because wow! Are they busy, the line of cars stretches across the whole store.

Willie B's Barbeque

Reviewed By mewillE55 - Byron Center, Michigan

We're from Michigan and we were visiting Bibleville and we went to lunch at this place. We walked in and wow! it smelled good. We walked through the line... Get whatever you want, how you want it...they're really accommodating. I got one of their potatoes which by the way is massive! And I didn't realize it so I also bought a sandwich with barbecue beef and it was huge. So needless to say I had lots of leftover food. The interior isn't real fancy but the food is wonderful. You won't go away hungry and you'll be back!

The fresh shrimp was good. Most of the people eating there were very old, which may explain the lack of flavor, spice, and salt in the food. They also had American food. I didn't even see a sign on the building. They also serve breakfast.

When I lived in the valley, there werent many great places to go. But the few great places, they were excellent and memorable. House Wine and Bistro is one of the nice places I liked to go to. Food, service, ambiance- very nice!
