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.

Salome had great tasting food and excellent service. Our server, Salome (interestingly not the Owner) was very knowledgeable and took good care of us. The price of the food is a little expensive, but it is worth going and trying this place.

This restaurant has the best Mexican cuisine we've experienced outside of Mexico. It also has an unusual wine list with some excellent Mexican wines. The service is attentive. The decor is minimalist.

My husband and I returned for a 3rd time and loved everything about it. We are lucky in that we have gone to Michelin Star restaurants in the past, and Salime rates up with those! So lucky to have this wonderful restaurant in the Rio Grande Valley.

If you like mole, start with their sampler then choose the dish with your favorite. Serving portions are perfect to indulge in their unique and excellent dessert menu. Extensive wine selection.

The food was amazing! Very attentive staff. The only thing I did not like were the restrooms. I prefer gender specific restrooms. I do not like to go into a restroom after a man has been in there since I need to sit to use the facilities.

We came as a group of four. Seated inside. The noise level was off the chart. Very hard to have a conversation as we had to keep leaning in. Food- Excellent. Had some tortilla chips that were fresh. Best I have ever eaten. Shared empanadas- very good. Finished off with the corn salad. Excellent. I didn’t order anything else as I was full. Had a bite of mango dessert. That was also very good. Wish they had more desserts and that weren’t chocolate. I will return but will sit outside or in the bar.

Went to try a new restaurant. The food was high quality and very tasty. Small plates. If you want large plates of food this isn’t the place to go. I am sick of all the valley buffets. Folks, quality over quantity works for me. Lots of staff. Wish I had gone later so I could sit outside. I will return. Great beer selection and the wait staff is trained on food and drinks.

I really love the food here and I truly appreciate the restaurant adding value to our community. I Admire the Delgado family's dedication and firm conviction In promoting Mcallen and bringing a high standard of dining to the discriminating tastebuds of us Mcallenites!
The restaurant although.very tastefully done is annoyingly loud-the tables are a bit over crowded but I will continue to be a loyal patron and I will
Continue to take my friends and business associates and clients.
Kiddos again to the Delgado's for an excellent job here as in Salt and House Wine but they really must do something about the almost uncomfortable seating and noice

See you aagian soon

Noise level inside was deafening-couldn’t hear the person sitting next to me.
recipe called for undercooked pork?
Overpriced margaritas and tortillas
Online menu choice not available at restaurant
Wooden chairs became more uncomfortable as the second hour passed

Salome has a lot going for it. The food is unique and very good; cocktails were tasty and refreshing. Service was also outstanding, especially with 2 waiters dedicated to our table. The negative issue we had with Salome was the temperature in the building. It's an old building, so insulation is an issue. We're already at major summer time temperatures and it appears the A/C tonnage is not adequate. We AND our guests repeatedly asked for a cooler environment and even b y 10:00 p.m., it was very warm. We will stay away during the summer months.

They were really accommodating. Once we were done with dinner, we wanted to have some drinks and they set up a little table so that we could sit outside and talk on the patio. Great all around experience. This was my third visit. It's gotten better every time!

Everything was great. Chef Larry and Jessica have outdone themselves again with their newest concept. Milton provides great convo and Jonathon, our server, was very knowledgeable about the menu and the options. His recommendations were great. We’ll definitely be back. Best part? The outdoor play area for kids. Now we can go to a nice restaurant and not be worried about our kids interrupting other’s meals.

Amazing. We had a bad experience at another restaurant in this group. This was polar opposite. It is a very pretty place, and we were greeted warmly. Our service was attentive, but not annoying - she was professional but friendly.
My wife had the fish special, which today was opah. It was plated beautifully and was so tasty that she cleaned the plate. It came with elote corn salad and parsnip mash.
I had the special, an Iberico pork chop served with quesadilla in adobo and mixed veg. I ate all of mine as well. For dessert, Mango o Nada, which was mango ice cream with mescal soaked mango, chayote, and mango puree. Very good.
My wife feels this was her 2nd favorite spot in the McAllen area. Thanks!

Food and service are excellent!! I was expecting quiet and nice ambient place but it was LOUD TOO MUCH. I couldn't talk to my wife and kid. I understand people got excited and enjoyed the time and drank wine but got to respect other people somehow. Laughing loudly, almost shouting each other, clapping hard.... This is not a private party place. I should have taken outside table.

First time at "Salome on Main", treated my partner to a nice dinner. So Place is very nice, Service was great, Food was very Fabulous. The only thing needs attention is the tortilla size is super small for the amount of food being served. Might want to rethink the tortilla size!

But plan to be back and will try it again.
