Saltillo's is one of our go to restaurants. We always enjoy food like alambres and ribeye. Very friendly staff especially the manager. Also enjoy enchiladas and appetizers. portions are very generous. Nice wine by the glass selection.

Consistently great food. If you get the large steak that is intended to be shared and share it between 4 people, you get a great steak and sides at an amazing price.

If you are looking for a great neighborhood restaurant with great food I would look no farther. The food is fresh and tasty but a little more expensive than your average Mexican restaurant. Staff is very friendly but one tip is to make a reservation or call a head because they are pretty full on the weekends.

Great spicy margaritas and really good food. Every bite was flavorful, and the sauces were excellent across the board. Server was attentive but not overbearing. Ate early and about half full so noise was minimal. Great date night.

Overall, the food was tasty, but we thought $19 for a shrimp cocktail with only 3 nice size, but not gigantic shrimp was a bit outrageous.

This is a unique restaurant that we are thrilled to have in our community. The food is different than your average Mexican fare — elevated Mexican specialties — and always superbly prepared. The service is impeccable. The bartender is a master at his craft — margaritas are simple and what margaritas are meant to be before all the machines and flavors became popular. Of special note are the beef offerings — highest quality, always prepared precisely to order. Delightful!

Food and service were excellent. A loud family with "Whiney" voices killed much of the ambiance. I don't think they'll always be there and the restaurant couldn't shut them up. In spite of that we enjoyed the experience and will go back.

My husband and I had a nice meal.
However we were 1st seated at a table for 2 in the very back of the restaurant. We requested a different table so we were seated at a table for 4 at the very front of the restaurant by the door when there were 3 or 4 tables available in the middle of the restaurant that were never filled. We also had a reservation.

We drive 40 miles from The Woodlands to eat here several times a year. Love the steak and enchiladas with Saltillo sauce. Delightful place to spend an evening chatting with friends and eating great food. Love their salsa flight as well.

We enjoyed our lunch here! Beautiful little spot. A little expensive but the food is delicious! I had an appetizer as my meal: 3 grilled chicken tacos. So good!! Very tender and tasty. My husband had the enchiladas and says they were delicious. They serve homemade tostada chips and 4 salsas. There is a little bar with excellent beers and wine. I will definitely return!

Excellent food. You must have the steak smothered in onions. The first time we went two out of four had it. The next two times all four of us had it. Excellent flavor and steak. Make sure you get Carla as your server. She is great. The service can be a little slow when they are packed, but it is well worth it. Make sure you listen to the explanation of the salsa. When they say one of the green one is hot, believe it. It is made from habaneros.

What a pleasure finding an intimate Mexican restaurant where the food is super tasty and you can actually carry on a conversation. The one drawback to our experience was the waitstaff. We actually had three folks assisting our table but the left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing.

My food was tasty, mole chicken, but my friend ordered the 3 tacos on the appetizer part and was very disappointed because they came with nothing in them but the meat and nothing else came with them, she complained to the manager and he apologized and said the waitress could have mentioned that. She did ask the waitress for lettuce, tomatoes and was charged extra, she didn't like that either.
