This restaurant has to be one-of-a-kind. They feature Chinese, Korean, and Mexican food, with I believe a few other cultures thrown in. When I was there last year there was a sign announcing "Coming soon: Italian buffet!" so they really try to do it all. You would think the food wasn't very good then since they try to do so much, but actually everything was decent. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, they changed the radio station when we came in and brought us some complementary rangoons. It's definitely an interesting place, pretty tasty, and worth a stop if you like both Asian and Mexican food.
It was heartened to see a Thai Restaurant in Del Rio and without hesitation entered. there were already signs of warning. there was no asian faces to be seen, all mexican faces. I have eaten thai food cooked by mexicans before in Lincoln and cooked by the chinese in Bruxelles, but this time i was hoping for some panang or massaman curry after days of eating Tacos.
The lunch buffet was laid out and all items were imitation chinese food: kung pao chicken, chicken in almonds .. what a great disappointment
This restaurant may be owned by thai people but the food they cook is a third rate chinese food. This is the first time i am eating at a place where a thai is cooking mediocre chinese food.. always beware, it is difficult to cross nationalities
I will not enter this premise ever again, and I warn others to go somewhere else if they want a chinese buffet since there seems to be chinese buffets in town
Favorite Dish: None of the dishes on the buffet tasted anywhere near Thai food.
The Seoul Restaurant offers a variety of Chinese and Korean dishes in an all you can eat buffet. The food is brought out often and they have a decent selection of fruit and deserts too.
Favorite Dish: This is one of the few buffets that had good kimch'i!
The restaurant has an European vibe that we were very surprised to find in this area. The food was good and the service too. It was built in the building that used to host the local newspaper, The Del Rio Herald. It's the hip place in town and the Margaritas are good.
Favorite Dish: Seafood is good there, we had calamari and shrimp.
The place looks great and the service is very good. Apparently is one of the best 10 Italian Restaurants in Texas and I am not surprised.
Favorite Dish: The restaurant offers this kind of appetizer on the house before you order your meal that is made of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic. They serve you warm ciabatta bread with it and it is absolutely delicious. Everything we have tried so far was good and the portions are huge!
I've been traveling to Del Rio and neighboring Acuna for several weeks now on business. I've be unable to enjoy a good steak in Del Rio because the only restaurants that serve steak are low end national chains. I found Wrights through and pen pale. I'm impressed. Writes is a traditional Texas country steak house. It servers a few cuts of good beef, along with lake fish and some sea food. The menu is limited, but what the have is outstanding.
The inside is old-school. I felt like I was stepping back into the 60's. The staff is efficient and friendly. I felt completely at home.
I had rib eye steak that melted in my mouth. It was served with onion rings that were outstanding. I also tried their nachos, they were a little different and were served with sliced smoked sausage, but I liked them. Main courses are served with a soup and salad bar. It’s all good.
Favorite Dish: The onion rings are soooooo good.
Bullet Beard/Tod Townsend's barbeque restaurant had a very diverse crowd and tasty barbeque. The interior was interesting decorated like a regular Texas border town honky-tonk, with a bar area and plenty of seating. DOS XX on draft!
They have live music on certain nights. A smoke free restaurant inside with an outside smoker's area.
Favorite Dish: I had the Tod's Special, brisket, baby back ribs and sausage. The brisket and ribs very pretty good but I have had better tasting sausage.
What a great stroy:
Garcia, born in Crystal City and raised in Ciudad Acuna, had always enjoyed working as a cook in Del Rio Restaurants and developed his own blend of seasonings that he added to the steaks he grilled. After losing his job when the restaurant closed, he was faced with large credit card debts. He tried marketing his seasoning from his home but his credit was so bad that he could not get a loan from the banks. Then a miracle occurred, a woman came to Garcia's home asking him for some of the seasoned corn tortilla chips she remembered eating at the restaurant where he worked. Julio went out bought some tortillas, fried them up and sprinkled seasoning on them put them in a beer carton, and wrapped them with colored paper. Apparently the women took them to a party and the legend of Julio's Seasoned Chips was born.
People began to come to his door and ask for the chips. He began to get so busy that his son Miguel went to work for him full time. It got so busy that they were getting in the way of Julio's wife, Lillia, so Miguel fixed up the garage next door and began making the chips there.
They started making money, and Garcia started paying off his bills. Now, Julio gets phone calls from banks offering to loan him money as his business expands.
Favorite Dish: Fajita taco plate and of course those tortilla chips!!!
This is great food at a good price - safe for non-Mexicans to eat. My party sampled everything on the menu, steak, seafood, pork, and all the fixings. It was all good. The food is homemade, but of a high quality. As with all Mexican restaurants, don’t drink the water or the ice cubes.
Favorite Dish: I loved the $7, 16 ounce t-bone. What a deal.
