I recently moved from West Texas to the Valley. I just thought I felt like the lone vegetarian out west, now I think I really might be! Is there any one out there from any part of the RGV that could give me some good restaurant tips. I can't find many that have stuff for me to eat.

I am really having a hard time adjusting here. Aside from no one even understanding what a vegetarian is... I hate the way animals are treated near the border and so many are very malnourished.

I hope I am just looking in the wrong places, there must be someone else who doen't eat meat here!

The place for me is Natrally's on the Island. Good fresh food. Other than that and a home cooked meal we are out of luck. There might be a couple of vegitarian joints in Mcallen. But that is too far for me. Good Luck, let me know if you find something interesting.

I just joined and see this post is from a while back, are you still in the Valley?

I have only found one other vegetarian in the seven years I've lived here.

Naturally's is the best vegetarian place anywhere in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

Here are a few others that aren't too bad either, none are vegetarian but have a few items on the menu that are vegetarian:
Blue Onion in Weslaco and North McAllen- but beware that their garlic dip and garlic/mushroom dip has chicken broth
Hop Tung in North McAllen
Lei Lai's in North McAllen
Mama Mia's Pizze in downtown McAllen
Tamales Y Mas in Mission will make special vegetarian dishes by request, but don't have much on their menu

Then there are many chain restaurants that also have a few veggie options
olive garden; pf chang; jason's deli; etc.

Let me know if you find any others.

I lived in Edinburg for a year in the early 2000s and I remember eating at Jason's quite a bit. Seems like it was in McAllen. I liked it down there and I remember Naturally's but that was/is a long drive from Edinburg.
