Mole - some Mexican restaurants have them, some do not. I am a firm believer that you can determine the quality of a Mexican restaurant by the quality of their Mole. If that's how you also feel, then Salsa 17 is the place you must go to,. It was my third week in Schaumburg for business , travelling with the... More

The La Azul margarita is great, so was the pork tenderloin. Always good food and gray service. Be prepared with reservations or to wake for a table on a Friday or Saturday night.

I'll start with a compliment for this restaurant...the food was pretty good, not exceptional, but good. Which makes me wonder why the heck we had to wait 25 minutes for a table. And there was your compliment! The sound level here was off.the.charts! Could barely hear my girlfriend, and she was only sitting across the table from me. The service... More

We opted for Salsa 17 because they were able to seat us right away on a Saturday night around 7:30. That should have been our first clue. The decor is nice and I liked the open windows (screened though) that reminded me of a restaurant in Mexico. Our server was attentive but not real knowledgeable about the menu. That was... More

I have a couple of friends who are ardent fans of Mexican cuisine and they suggested this place to me. I had one of the best Mexican food here. They have awesome Margaritas and to top it we can get freshly made (yup they ale it in front of you) guacamole to have with the chips. We had Pollo poblano..the... More

This was my first visit here and I couldn't be happier with it. I will be back. They have red and white sangria. My friend and I couldn't decide so they let us taste both to decide what we liked. Their menu has many choices and many vegetarian options. The food is really good. Big portions! And I think their... More

A hidden gem in downtown Arlington Heights where you will find upscale Mexican food, great cocktails and service! A must try if you live or are visiting the area.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and an excellent staff. The food is always delicious and the portions are generous. The table side guacamole is a MUST GET! The best guacamole I have ever had. I make it out to Salsa 17 at least once every 2 weeks. Definitely recommend to any who loves Mexican food and wants to have... More

The restaurant is cozy and nicely decorated. It is not very large and can get a bit crowded. The service was very good. We were seated much quicker than anticipated and our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was good and the drinks were very good. It was crowded the night we dined and as such it was...
