Saltillo Mexican Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Our first time at Saltillo. I read reviews that encouraged us to try. From the beginning, the service was excellent. The usual chips and salsa were very special--four different kinds of salsa--from mild tomatillo/avocado to fiery habanero--all wonderful. We usually share things at restaurants and so ordered one wedge salad--not very Oaxacan, but a favorite of my husband. It was big enough for three people-but very fresh and delicious. We each ordered an enchilada dish, mine was their chicken mole, and my husband's was the chicken verde. The mole dish was quite good, although I would recommend they heat the plates more--as mine were not as hot as they should have been. My husband's verde enchiladas were good--very fresh, but could have used somehting to provide a more distict flavor--a little boring. By the way, the house margaritas, which use a reposada tequila were excellent! Overall, we definitely think this Oaxacan-specialty restaurant--which was quite busy on a Fri night is a keeper!!!
Were regulars at the old Westheimer location, so we wondered over to the new Bellaire spot. Bit plainer and smaller, but the bar is still a fun spot. The food is exactly the same: great. You need to try the Tapa de lomo with a group. Best Saltillo style cuisine this side of the border.
They need to bring back more Mexican wines like Casa Madero, but there is good enough variety.
Excellent restaurant. Personally we our entire table thought all the food was excellent. The queso was the bomb. Steak cooked very well ( could have used just a little more char for me. I have no doubt they would accommodate if requested). The smoke on the grilled veggies was perfect. The pollo en salsa borracha was juicy and flavorful. This will be our go to Mexican restaurant from now on!
Growing up with parents that were raised in Spain as military brats, but grandparents from Mexico it is very tough to eat out 'Mexican Food' AND I LOVED this place. I would bring my parents and god rest their soul(s) my grand parents here too. Our waiter was the acting manager and we also met the owner. Carlos I believe was his name. Kind of a small place and not the gem you would expect just driving by SO DEFINITELY make a reservation to get a seat. We will be back for sure!
Thank you for a great date night - Heather and Darryl
We love going to this authentic Mexican spot in the heart of Bellaire. It's a neighborhood gem, and I can't get enough of their Trio of Tamales. I order it every time. The margaritas on the rocks are also wonderful. Best of all is the chips and salsas they serve before the meal -- you get to sample about 4 different salsas that range from mild to spicy. It's a lot of fun and easy to get a table here. We usually make reservations with Open Table or by calling.
Only our second time there and we were hoping it would be better than a few years back.
Service is terrific but it took almost an hour to get our food. We did not order anything that
should have taken that long. The food was delicious once it arrived. Maybe we should order
a half hour before we get there.
Took my 25 yr old son for his first time there. He loved it so much he wants to bring all his friends
Saltillo has not only has the greatest food and service, but their people the employees the MGR Francisco and Jose the bartender are really great persons and do their best.
Bellaire has a real gem just outside the boundary very nearby.
Highly recommend it.
This was our first visit and we were impressed with both the meat and meatless options. Houston Restaurant Weeks menu was a perfect way to sample a number of dishes and contribute to a good cause. It's on our list to return for well-prepared authentic Mexican fare.
Saltillo Kitchen is a true dining gem. Their food is expertly prepared. I don't think any of the other restaurants in Houston have better steaks. The service is excellent, as the wait staff and the maître d' are very attentive and friendly. Their salsas are delicious, and they have a queso fundido that is spectacularly savory. We have become great fans of their Cabernet-Sangiovese mix from Montefiori vineyards of Baja California. For the price you would be hard pressed to find a better wine. I think all Houstonians should give this place a try; you won't be disappointed.
