About the restaurant
Overlooking North McAllen, TOLOA's rooftop space acts as a studio for creating social experiences around food and drink. A list of seasonally curated cocktails act as an accessory to the open-air patio and lounge from sunset to late night. The food offered focuses on Modern Mexican eatery and is designed to either be shared, provide a small bite, or be ordered as a multi-course dinner. TOLOA is a new way to indulge and be social.

Staff was professional and attentive. Never had an empty glass. The waiter’s recommendations for food and drinks were spot on and delectable. Plates were beautifully presented and drinks were magical with smoke effects and everything. The food was authentic and delicious. Portions are generous. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Floors, countertops, tables and chairs were all elegant. Even the bathroom was next level, including actual cloth hand towels. I highly recommend this place for brunch, date, special occasion. I came for a date and asked to have a rose and drinks at the table upon arrival. Staff went above and beyond to fulfill my request. I will definitely be coming back to this gem in McAllen, TX.
