“Average local Mexican restaurant, better than fast food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

Salamandra's is a local Mexican restaurant located in the downtown area of Dixon, Illinois. My boyfriend and I stopped in this restaurant with his family during the holidays. The portions were gigantic, however, the food was just average. Two of my dislikes were the cramped setting and slow service. For my full review of this restaurant please visit the following URL:

You MUST try the guacamole! Incredibly fresh and yummy. Everything that I have tried on the menu has been wonderful. Margaritas are terrific!

“As good as eating in the best restaurant in Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2009

Authentic, wonderful food! This place has great food and we're from Chicago and spoiled with excellent Mexican restaurants! The red/bean salsa is the best! Never have we had such a tasty salsa with ho-made chips. Very big menu with beer and alcohol. When in Dixon- Go here!
