One of my favorite things to do in Chicago is to mosey down Wells Street, and absolutely no mosey is complete without a margarita and snack at Salpicon.

Your meal will be colorful and tequila-fueled at this Old Town institution. Try the spicy guacamole and tamalitos.

Tamale appetizer special out of this world, adn please offer this often. Chili Rellanos were excellent (it is rare to find them done properly and they are a personal metric of Mexican restaurants) Suggest adding Sopapias to the desert menu. See you again, soon.

Every one of my meals has consisted of a dozen spectacularly good dishes -- and one spectacularly bad. Still, even the misses signify an effort to try new things, which I very much appreciate. I've been to every one of the top Mexican restaurants in the Chicago area across the price spectrum, and Salpicon is by far my favorite!

Excellent, as always. Have never been disappointed in the many years I've eaten here. The margaritas are splendid and worth a visit anytime. Cordial, knowledgeable service. Good music.

Awesome food and drink, well above average. Even the standbys such as Stuffed Jalapenos take on an elevated approach at Salpicon while remaining approachable. This is Modernist Cuisine but an elevated and creative approach to some traditional favorites as well as exciting new dishes.

A great experience all around. Food was excellent. Especially loved the tostaditas de tinga and the mole poblano.

We were out of town and it was our first visit. Our server was helpful and knowledgeable. Presentation was spectacular and the food was wonderful! A long ways up from the Chili Colorado that shows up on the menus of Mexican restaurants all over our city (St. Louis). My husband proclaimed it was the best meal he had ever eaten.

We have been to Salpicon several times before (including some special dinners for celebrations) and always swoon over the experience. Everything we had was great, and while we sat at the bar for our experience, it was absolutely great! I ordered a Mescal flight which was a lot of fun, while my wife enjoyed the delicious margaritas. A very, very good experience.
