This really a great little restaurant. There were four of us and we had a good variety of food. Steaks, seafood and enchiladas. All really excellent. Plus pleasantly different from other Mexican cuisines. Really good Margaritas and pleasant service make for a nice evening.

The last 2 times we’ve eaten here has been a real disappointment. The food used to be cooked with a wonderful mesquite flavoring to the steaks and veggies. Now tastes like it was just cooked on a flattop grill with no mesquite flavor at all. The queso was more grease than cheese. This used to be one of our favorite spots, can’t see coming back here after last two visits.

Saltillo is a small but quaint little neighborhood restaurant with lovely ambiance; however, I am not a fan of restaurant sporting televisions in various corners with games on. That's fine for a sports bar but Saltillo is not a sports bar. I was one of a party of 4; I ordered the brisket, which was quite salty, but I had read that on another review, so I was prewarned. Another person ordered the steak milanesa, which was dry and tasteless. Another person ordered the enchiladas, and he said they were a bit bland. The 4th person ordered the lamb, which he said was very good. We all thought it a bit odd that the restaurant serves beans along with potatoes rather than with rice. The sides were also a bit bland. We ordered to desserts: the rum cake and the flourless pecan cake, both of which were very good.

I leave a review after almost every time we have eaten at Saltillo because each time it’s better than the last. Saltillo is not close to our house but it’s so worth the drive! They have great cocktails and an extensive wine list and from the appetizer to the desert the food is incredible. This time we started with the beef carpaccio and it was excellent. For our main course we all chose something different...the tacos in mole sauce (amazing mole!), asada steak and the brisket were fantastic and one of us had the Kobe beef burger that he says was the best burger he’s ever had. The service is always on point and Francisco the manager is so friendly and welcoming. Please try Saltillo it is a hidden gem in Houston. Be sure to make a reservation as it is small and always busy.

This was a very good experience and we enjoyed the food in this family-style restaurant. It was a a little too greasy and the brisket was too salty for our taste, but we will come back and try other dishes.

The service was excellent and the food very good. This was our 2nd time there. I like this place for the intimate setting and very attentive service. The only thing on this visit was the fact that we had a table for two in between 2 larger tables but it was ok in the end. The margaritas were delicious as was the rum cake which we shared for dessert. Would highly recommend this hidden gem. Mexican food, not Tex mex.

Saltillo Mexican Kitchen is a local gem in the Bellaire area. We had their Enchiladas Saltillo, Enchiladas De Pollo en Mole, and the Flourless Pecan Cake. They were all delicious! We will be back whenever we in the neighborhood!

Our party of 5 had the Tapa de Lomo Ribeye Cap, which we all agreed was one of the most flavorful and tender steaks that we have ever had. The accompaniments were tasty and well prepared. Service was excellent and not overly attentive. We will definitely be back.

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!
