Ho's Garden on Palm Blvd. near the railroad tracks in front of Ninfa's restaurant; the best Chinese food you ever wanted to taste, bon-a-petite. Say hello to the owner Mrs. Ho; tell her Elizabeth Black sent you, she knows me well.
Decorated inside very nice in oriental style.
Favorite Dish: Moo Goo guipan with steamed rice or Chicken with Broccoli and steamed rice. Prices are very reasonable no more than $4.00 with drinks and big portions.
Whataburger: Get the double meat!
Best fast food burger in the world! I know, I have had a bunch of them.
Favorite Dish: Double meat Whataburger. No cheese. Meat, mustard, dill pickles and sliced jalapeno peppers set off the lettuce, onion, and tomato. The bun is grilled and the patties are juicy. I am getting hungry just writing about it!

A great place to eat on South Padre is at South Padre Island Brewery.
The price is reasonable and they have a decent menu to choose from. You can go up to the second floor and sit outside on the deck. You get a great view of the Island and the weather is usually always great in the summer. (They have an elevator as well)
Favorite Dish: Aside from there great beer, I'd have to say there stakes are excellent.

Favorite Dish: I asked the waitress. I was in TEXAS and wanted the real thing. In broken English / Spanish she said:
'We use WONDER BREAD!
Cheddar's: Another Nice Chain Restaurant
$12 as of May 2014. Cheddar's is a chain restaurant similar to say Chili's. The atmosphere is nice but still rather casual. The food is consistently good and the service professional. I had a very good waitress at this one. Hours are 11 AM to 11 PM Monday through Thursday, 11 AM to 12 AM Friday and Saturday, and 10:30 AM to 11 PM on Sunday.
Favorite Dish: They have very good Blackened Catfish with a bit of a kick.

Emilia's: Excellent Tex-Mex Restaurant
This place isn't fancy, but is one of the best local restaurants, and very inexpensive. It is as close to home-made as you can get.
For lunch they have a regular list of some 15 plates. All are served with a bowl of soup, and a small dessert- coconut cake or vanilla flan- all for under $10!
Not a lot of English is spoken by the staff, but they understand it to some degree, so even the most Anglo visitor won't have any problem.
