Great food. Great service
For me, Salome is hands-down the best of the Valley. Beautiful setting, excellent service, and an interesting menu with fantastic cookery. My date had the pork belly, and she was willing to offer the 1st bite to me, but after that she guarded her plate jealously. Crispy, smoky, complex - never enjoyed better pork belly anywhere. My ribeye was cooked to perfection and the menu planning was thoughtful.
Will keep coming back for truly great food!
Everything about our experience was impeccable. The wait staff guide us through our selections and even brought us some off menu items that were extra special. Chef Larry came to our table and visited with us for a while and told us in great detail about the preparation of the food and his passion. I would rank this amongst one of the better dining experiences I’ve ever had.
First time dining at Salome, the food was great lived up to our expectations and I have to say the service was the best. Our waiters were friendly, always smiling ready to attend to our needs and courteous. Overall I would return to dine again and would recommend to friends
First time trying this restaurant and would go again. The atmosphere was casual. Attentive service members and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was exotic Mexican that I have not found at other restaurants. The seating was uncomfortable but not limited by social distancing; we did make a reservation.The menu was limited in comparison to other restaurants. Overall 3/5 stars because of the seating and noise level carries.
One of the beat overall
dining experiences I’ve had in a while. I’ve been 4 times and the food and service are always stellar. Excellent restaurant group!
Had the elote salad and lengua tacos and they were both delicious!

Great food and ambiance!
We were a bit disappointed with the food this time. We have been there before Covid and it was very very good.
Not this time. We think it is because they just re opened? We sure hope so. It took a long time before our food was served too.
Enjoyed the food very much. The food and drink were excellent
The food was amazing!! Service was great! Waiter and manager very knowledgeable about the food. Most definitely going back.
Service excellent and food delicious all the experience was above and beyond
The team always take good care of the customers. The food is always very good, very original and quality consistent.
Hostess, wait staff, and chef all came together to make our special occasion something exceptional. They spoke with us after our meals as we were leaving and it felt like we were VIPs in every sense of the phrase.
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.
