The Texas Café in Rio Grande City has been in business since 1939, but almost closed for good due to the pandemic. 

"It was a very difficult decision, because I really didn't want to open either," said Texas Café Owner Becky Garza. "I wanted to wait until everything was over, but then you have that feeling of if you open later, is business still going to be the same?" 

After five months of being shut down, the café reopened in January. 

Despite many other business having to close during the early days of the pandemic, Starr County did fairly well in sales tax revenues.
