My wife and I decided to try a new restaurant every Friday on our stay in Southern Texas. Our first one turned out to be one much like a Golden Corral that has lots to choose from. We had a coupon that was in the local paper so it was very good price. The food was good. The only thing... More

I've been to Furr's in a number of locations. This one is just OK. The food was only fair. Service is just OK, I like to have my tea filled when it runs low but I always had to ask for refills.

This place has inattentive wait staff. Two waitresses stood and chatted while I ate half my plate of food before asking me for my drink preference. Several of the food item selections were empty or near empty. The service here exemplifies the sluggish service standards of the area.

Whenever we come to the Rio Grand Valley, Furr's, in McAllen, is one of our "go to" spots which we never fail to visit. Lots of restaurants in the city have a solid clientele but Furr's seems to have one of the most regular. We have been visiting it for more than a decade, sometimes even driving more than twenty...

We enjoy taking our friends here to eat. They can find anything they want and there is always plenty of it. We especially enjoy the millionaire pie and the pecan pie. I like the salad bar too.

Loved the food. Everything was cooked to perfection! So many pies to choose from. It is very easy to over eat. Check the plate to make sure it is clean, as the dishwasher seems to be inefficient. Very busy.

It is an American food buffet. Tons of kids running around. It reminded me of ants at a picnic everyone jumping from place to place no order. Most of the food bins had a few items left, some empty and the unpopular full. It was 13 a person plus tax. I doubt if I would go back.
