Contemporary Mexican
Welcome to Salomé, an experience that defines our culture and heritage through past, present and future culinary traditions. Our concept is built on the idea of preserving traditional flavors, techniques, and meticulously presenting dishes with a modern hand. We are challenging our culinary teams to redefine Mexican Cuisine as our region knows it, while keeping an eye on sustainability and sourcing from responsible growers, ranchers and farmers.
Our bar has the largest and most eclectic array of Agave Spirits our region has seen in recent years. Our cocktails are hand crafted and feature fresh squeezed juices from our valley’s finest citrus and produce. Our wine list celebrates Mexican and Mexican–American wine makers that are making their impression on the wine world by expressing their talent and that of generations of viticulturists that shaped the landscape of California, Baja and beyond.
We invite you to be transported and experience the nostalgic flavors of México.

If you're looking for relaxed ambiance blended into the intense flavors of interior Mexican cuisine then head to Salome. It's a special place in Mcallen. The entire staff is at your service and make you feel right at home. Sit on the patio or enjoy the beautiful interior of a renovated hacienda. Cozy up to the bar for a drink and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the kitchen. The cocktails feature Mexican staples such as margaritas and the best damn Paloma you've ever had. The wine list features staple varietals and bottles sourced from Mexico. We look forward to going again/

From the moment I stepped out of the car I was impressed! The building was impressive. I was welcomed as I walked through the door and escorted to my table. Jonathan, my server, provided excellent details regarding the menu and was attentive during my meal. The food was exceptional! The ingredients were fresh and I could taste the complexity of each dish. I was impressed with the entire experience! I will definitely return when in McAllen. This is a gem!

This place was amazing! The food has a great rich authentic flavor with a great portion. We loved the decor, rustic yet modern. I will say it was a little loud inside. Next time we will try the outdoor seating.

The menu at Salome is very exciting. We had the huaraches as an appetizer. They were excellent, flavorful, and different. I ordered the elote salad which was one of the best salads I have ever had. Every component went well with the other components. I ordered Cegueza for my entree. The chicken was well-cooked, if a little dry. The “mole” lacked flavor, even a little salt would have helped. The service was extremely slow throughout the dinner. Our waitress was nice and friendly and got all our orders right. I don’t think it was her fault that everything seemed to take a very long time, even though they were not very busy.
I will probably go back the next time I’m in McAllen. I will try a different entree and plan my time accordingly.

Made reservation and things were great at the moment we walked in. The host was amazing and knew exactly who we were and what table we requested. The problem was while we waited for the waiter.
We sat and waited for our waiter. Waited 10mins.. 15mins.. up to 20 minutes and decided to call the front desk to ask about our waiter. They told me they will get someone right away.. which it didn’t happen. 8 minutes later I call again and asked if the waiter was called. She apologized and she brought us water, 5 minutes later our waiter comes.
He pretends he never saw us. I told him that we have been sitting here for over 20 minutes, which he walked by us over 5 times and never acknowledged us; not even a “I’ll be right with you”. And all he said he never saw us, and kept saying that we were going to have a great experience.
We ordered and appetizer and 2 drinks which did get to us within 10 mins but decided to leave after that because the waiter kept asking how the experience so far, I wanted to tell him that it started off really bad not being acknowledged for over 20 mins when he is walking by out able over 5 times but I didn’t. I told him the food and drinks were great but didn’t tell him the overall experience wasn’t.
It’s not the first time that we sit outside and people forget about me and my parter. I don’t know the reason why we have been ignored when we go and sit out there and I don’t want to speculate but overall the experience was not welcoming. We felt very uncomfortable and just got 2 drink and an appetizer (the aguachiles) which were amazing but we paid over $40 for a horrible expletive. I have never been treated like this in their 2 other locations.
After that we came to Applebee’s and we were taken care of within 5 mins after sitting in our table and paid about the same with 2 dinner and a drink.
Don’t get me wrong, their other 2 locations are amazing when it comes to customer care and I really wish they would get their things together in Salome.
