That looks like Garcia's, upstairs. If you're ever there again have the Bananas Foster. The best I've ever had.

As for the top pic, the time I was in Progresso they had a small sand-bag bunker in the middle of the 5-way, star shaped intersection as you come into town with a 2x12 across it on which they'd mounted a machine gun. Scared me at first until I was told that it was to assure the tourists that they were serious about keeping the town safe from the drug gangs that had taken over Matamoros.

Enjoying your RR very much. Thanks for taking the time to share your trip with us.
