Been patronizing this establishment a few times a year as they are just off 355 and convenient when commuting back and forth to work. Great salsas to compliment the fish tacos. Staff is always very friendly. Yum!

Everything is fresh and delicious. The Fish Tacos received a Best Chicago Fish Tacos in the Western Suburbs in the Chicago Tribume. Well deserved. Crispy fried tilapia with cabbage, cuke and sauce on them. The chicken is grilled and properly seasoned. You always get complimentary chips and salsa when you come in and eat or take out.

I knew Lorelei who works here and she introduced me to the owner who shared how they make everything fresh. I had the battered fish tacos and mixed 3 salsas together and it was tasty and I saw the marinated chicken cooking and next time I will go with the chicken as it looked and smelled good.

Great food for a Sunday night or any night! We stopped by for take out and got steak tacos, chicken dinner with sides of sweet potatoes, grilled veggies and corn bread muffins. Loved that the muffins had chunks of corn in them. Chicken dinner had a great flavor. My husband really like the steak tacos. We had heard great things... More

Great fish tacos! The short wait while they are freshly prepared was worth it. Much better than pre-made fast food tacos. Friendly, clean and great service. I highly recommend you to give them a try! Nice lunch spot!

Good food, particularly the fish tacos. Service us so slow that I avoid going there. Yes, they say that it's because they prepare food individually, but it is really slow.

Chicks n Salsa is an independent restaurant in Glen Ellyn. The owner serves freshly made food. Their fish tacos are famous-- and delicious. They are not "fast food" in the sense that the food is sitting around waiting for you to come in. Your order is cooked for you and worth waiting a few minutes..
