According to RGV FOODIES theses are THE BEST SPOTS for getting a burger in the RGV. Best Burgers in McAllen Mission Harlingen Edinburg

Here, in the Rio Grande Valley, we are lucky to have several local restauranteurs adding their special style, spices and secret recipes to create their very own unique hamburger.  Whenever I get hungry the first craving that comes to my tastebuds is a freshly made hamburger, warm bread and crispy fries. For this reason, I decided to ask the community of RGV Foodies for their best, this was the result:

My favorite cheat food is Pizza, so as I was grabbing my phone to order the usual at the usual place, I stopped. Suddenly, it hit me: there must be other options! We, valley people, must have other options besides the cesar, the hut and the dominos. I posted in Que Comer Rgv facebook page asking you, RGV FOODIES, for recommendations of the best local restaurants to have pizza in the Rio Grande Valley.

Do you think of Chilaquiles as a Mexican Lasagna?

When green or red salsa is poured over crisp tortilla triangles, you know a delicious flavor is coming up. This extraordinary breakfast dish is one of my all time favorites. It is perfect to fulfill a craving for a big, spicy and yummy breakfast.

If you live around McAllen area, you must be wondering: “where do i go to get some awesome chilaquiles?”.

Do not worry, my friend. I just tasted several chilaquiles around, and have a few suggestion for you:

GREENS AND LEMONS

Their green and red sauce have the perfect combination of spicy and sour taste. Also, their mozzarella cheese is just delicious! Ask for your green chilaquiles with chicken, they will be served with black beans and delicious nopalitos.

Special Tip:  Add extra chicken and you wont be hungry until dinner.

Special Tip: Add their green house of top of your chilaquiles for extra delicious flavor!
