Working to Add All RV Parks in Mission, Texas

If you are a regular visitor to MissionTexas.net, then you have seen our business directory, which is still growing. Today, we are looking for information about all the RV parks in Mission, Texas. You can see our current listings at the RV Parks in Mission, Texas page.

Once the project is complete, the individual pages will have photos of the parks, as time permits.

Google Maps has trouble with addresses on Bentsen Palm Drive. In addition to listing the RV parks, we will edit the maps to improve accuracy. But, this is a long, painstaking process.

We will get a large portion of the work done before the end of Summer 2012.

Pork Barbacoa at Lalo's Restaurant

This was the first time trying pork barbacoa. In addition to being tasty, it's not greasy like our typical barbacoa. They steam it. Add corn tortillas, salsa, salt to taste...you have yourself a great pork barbacoa taco. So far, Lalo's Restaurant is the only place I've seen pork barbacoa on the menu. 

Lalo's Restaurant is located at:
601 E 9th St, Ste C. here in Mission.

They specialize in catering, and are excellent at delivering some very unique and delicious interpretations of your favorite foods.
