Ive dined here for Lunch and dinner. Servings are ample size, freshly made and certainly very tasty. It is a great place to eat prior to attending the Metropolis Theatre! Service is beyond reproach and the owner is always present. Cheerful and welcoming atmosphere!

I was in the O'Hare area with a friend and had some time to kill, we decided to go out to grab some food. We found Salsa 17 in a nice neighbourhood, very easy to reach and park nearby. It was mid afternoon, there were only a couple of tenants in the premise and 2 waiters on duty. The guy... More

Also been in a fan of their mole, and have the opportunity to visit Oaxaca the birthplace of mole makes difficult for me to... More

This was the fourth time I've been to Salsa17. I wasn't impressed the past times, but an out of town friend wanted to try it. The free salsa and freshly cooked chips are fabulous. My friend had the Camarones al Ajillo (sautéed shrimp served with chipotle mashed potatoes ($19.95). was a generous serving of large gulf shrimp nicely prepared. I... More

This was the best Mexican food I have had outside of Mexico. The staff was wonderful, the atmosphere lively and the food was warm and flavorful.

After a very disappointing meal at the other Mexican restaurant in Arlington Heights, we were reluctant to try Salsa 17, but were glad that we did. The fish tacos were excellent, and my friend said her chicken burrito (which was huge) was also very good. Service was great - our waiter noticed I was using the salsa to top my... More

I am from the Northwest suburbs and frequently dine in the downtown Arlington Heights area. Some of my favorite Suburban restaurants are located in this cute downtown like La Tasca, Carlos & Carlos and Harry's to name a few. I've actually been to this location, when it was under a different name. Regardless, myself and two of my lifelong friends... More

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.
