Those people who are looking for a quick, pre-processed meal are not the right customers to enjoy this restaurant. It takes slightly longer to get your food, but they are not slow and give you a chance to make dining an experience. On top, the owner, Don is a caring, friendly person who will chat with you at the table... More

I, my family and my friends have eaten here often-not sure why it took so long to write a review. If you are in the mood for a good Rueben sandwich in the Salida area-there is no better place than Shallots. I have tried this sandwich at each restaurant in town and Shallots by far hits the nail on the... More

We visited last evening again and both couples were impressed with the food. I guess we have similar tastes as the four of us ordered two Bolognaise and two smoked half-chicken. The chicken was excellent with a raspberry sauce which was pleasantly spicy. Accompanied by boiled potatoes and grilled vegetables, it was a very tasty meal. I took it with... More

My family and I stopped by Salida, CO looking for some good food on the way back to Utah. We parked in front of Shallots as it looked promising, but we weren't ready to eat just yet. We walked the town and had numerous confirmations from local shop owners that indeed, Shallots was the place. We ordered brunch and everything... More

I took my family here the Saturday night after Christmas around 5:30, well before the dinner rush. The bartender was a smartass and there were only 2 waitresses who couldn't keep up with a total of 4 tables (8 by the time we left). By the time dinner was done we had a laundry list of complaints. My boyfriend ordered... More

On a thrift shop adventure trip my friend and I happened upon Shallots. It was early and we were the only diners but the hostess gave us the window seat. The sandwich of the day was Hot Pastrami served with home made potato chips and crispy coleslaw. The sandwich came piled high with tender pastrami. The chips were delightful and... More

Their breakfast burrito was one of the best I've ever had (and I always order the breakfast burrito when I go out to breakfast). Their ingredients are fresh and the service is friendly and helpful.
