Great food ... great staff .. really liked the ambiance
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/
Great service. We were able to enjoy dinner with just the right amount of server interaction and we didn't have to wait very long on anything. Food was delicious and flavorful.
One of my favorite restaurants because of the food and ambience
Great food and experience. The menu selection needs to be expanded a bit more.
Excelente ambiente y la comida deliciosa
They forgot about our food order, we sat for over an hour waiting. They didn't realize we never got our food until we were asking for our drink tab.
We will be back
Delicious! Enjoyed the food, drinks , and ambience oh and our waitress was so knowledgeable and very nice.
Food was delicious! Very quiet, intimate atmosphere. Will definitely go back!
The ambience was nice and the service was great!
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!
Thank you Johnathan.
Wonderful experience. Will be back again for sure.
Chef Larry is ridiculously talented. He and his team create amazing dishes while the staff go out of their way to make sure you have a night to remember.
Wonderful service and aesthetics all around. Our waiter was extremely helpful with questions about the various menu options. Chefs did a fantastic jobs with presentation, taste, and timeliness. Will definitely be back.
Great Staff, our server was amazing and his personality made the experience one to remember!
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.
Great place for dinner and drinks. The menu has great options and the ambiance is so worth it. Great Date Night location.
It was our first time there and we loved the food. The flavors were awesome. Definitely going back. We went for our anniversary and they definitely made it special.
This place is quite different & unique! Loved the atmosphere & ambiance. Healthy & tasty dishes were superb with a bit of a Spanish/Mexican flare!
Great food and super service. Need translation on the menu.
La comida deliciosa, el trato ni se diga, todos súper amables.
Came here for a friends birthday. Food was excellent and I will most definitely be back. Best restaurant in McAllen!
The food was delicious.Server was nice, drinks were great.
Salomé was flat out AMAZING. Great food, great service and our waiter Ozzy was super friendly and knowledgeable of everything. My girlfriend and I will be back.
Great food and service. My new favorite restaurant!
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.
Great food, ambiance, and service!!
The food was wonderful and the service always excellent.
Salome’s first brunch was, from beginning to end, outstanding. The service was great and food unique. Everything was well prepared and I will definitely be at their next one.
A truly unique take on Mexican cuisine. The food is different but delicious and the service is outstanding. Well worth it.
It was amazing just really
Packed but great overall!
Fabulous. And interesting food . We went twice in a week. The service is the way it should be everywhere. Other restaurants could learn from Salome . Ya Ya is the most informed and attentive server. . This place is a hit ! Don’t change a thing .
Everything was great

price is not too bad
tequila and mezcal plus mexican wines a plus
