More than Two Miles of Beer Lines
With 130 beers on tap, the McAllen Yard House offers the largest assortment of draft beer in the city. Each Yard House has its own specially curated beer offering, and a selection of taps are reserved for local and regional brewers, including Shiner, 5×5, and Big River Brewery, as well as small-batch and seasonal selections. The restaurant’s rotating Chalkboard Series features hard-to-find limited and seasonal varieties. To keep all that beer perfectly chilled, the McAllen Yard House features a glass-enclosed keg room that houses 3,000 gallons of beer at an ideal 36-38 degrees. The beer is delivered to the center island bar through more than two miles of individual beer lines stretch overhead.
More than 100 Menu Items Made from Scratch Daily
Beer is Yard House’s heart, and food is its soul. With more than 100 menu items, there’s something for everyone on the menu. Featured menu items include the Poke Nachos, Nashville Hot Chicken, Parmesan Crusted Pork Loin and Ginger Crusted Salmon. Gluten-sensitive, vegan and vegetarian options are also available.
Hand-Picked Music Creates a Vibe
Guests come to Yard House to socialize, whether it be for Happy Hour after work, weekend entertainment or to watch the hottest sporting events. Yard House’s hand-picked and unique playlists help set the tone for every interaction. The original art featured on Yard House’s walls also helps set the restaurant’s vibe. Each piece is handcrafted exclusively for Yard House by abstract artist Jerome Gastaldi to reflect the energy within the restaurant.
Giving Back to the Community
To celebrate the McAllen Yard House opening and introduction to the local community, the restaurant is donating proceeds from its Friends and Family training events to Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley. Guests can get involved in community efforts through Round it Up America®, which donates the change when a guest chooses to round up their bill at Yard House. Part of these funds are donated to Feeding America® and reach our local food bank partners, along with the Special Olympics and American Red Cross. Once open, the restaurant will also be participating in Yard House’s Harvest program to help feed the hungry. Each day, team members will “harvest” surplus, wholesome food that wasn’t served in the restaurant and will donate it to local food banks. Items such as fresh seafood and other meats, soups, and vegetables – not leftovers, just unused, fresh food – are donated.
Join the Yard House Family
Working at Yard House isn’t just a job – it’s a family. When you walk into the McAllen Yard House, you’ll be greeted by General Manager Kevin Norrell, who has been with Yard House for over 7 years. Yard House prides itself on its team members and allowing them to grow with the restaurant. One such program to help team members grow is the nationally recognized Cicerone Certification Training Program that Yard House recognizes as the ultimate expert training program in beer. The four-level program has become the industry standard for identifying people with significant knowledge and professional skill in beer sales and service. This training gives team members the opportunity to become certified beer professionals.
