Proudly Serving Mercedes, Texas

January 11th, 2020 by

Bert Ogden Mission Mazda calls the city of Mission, Texas, its home, but we are happy to serve our surrounding communities as well, such as the city of Mercedes just 30 miles east of Mission. The drive from Mercedes, Texas, to our dealership here in Mission takes roughly half an hour, putting us well within range to be Mercedes’ one-stop shop for new and used vehicle shopping and maintenance.

Mercedes is a small community of amazing people. As of 2010, Mercedes was home to just over 15,000 residents. The city, which is also known as the “Queen City of the Valley,” is over 110 years old, originally founded on September 15, 1907. Nowadays, it is perhaps more famously known for its unique public art project, which includes 30 handcrafted cowboy boots throughout the town, each standing at 5 ½ feet.

Things to do in Mercedes, Texas

If you love the outdoors, you will feel right at home in and around Mercedes. On a nice day, you can head to Weslaco to check out the Valley Nature Center, Estero Llano Grand State Park, or the Frontera Audubon, where you can do some serious birdwatching. Enjoy shopping? Check out the Rio Grande Premium Outlets, the El Disco Super Center in nearby Progreso, or Don Wes Flea Market in nearby Donna.

Places to eat and drink in Mercedes, Texas

After a day of outdoor and/or shopping adventures, you deserve a delicious meal. Try one of Mercedes’ most acclaimed restaurants. We highly recommend The Smoking Oak or Mi Casa Restaurant. Nearby Tulum Seafood gives seafood a fun, Mexican flare. Other top restaurants include Formacio Pizza, Cortino’s Italian Restaurant, and Nana’s Tacqueria with outdoor seating.

After dinner, grab a drink at the Tuercas Sports Bar & Grill, R & R Tavern, or Pecker’s Neighborhood Bar and Grill.

We at Bert Ogden Mission Mazda in Mission, TX enjoy visiting Mercedes and are happy to serve its residents by providing reliable, stylish, fun-to-drive Mazda vehicles.
