The lobster burritos are fantastic! What a hidden gem. I found this place by accident when I pulled into the parking lot to shop at Pete’s Market. I love the affordable prices and the wide array of delicious foods at Chicks ‘n Salsa. My favorite...items are the shrimp burritos and the lobster burritos. The guacamole and salsas are made fresh every day, and they are quite tasty. My favorite desert here is the sweet potato (it’s a healthier choice). I highly recommend this wonderful little restaurant, where the food is good and the staff are all friendly and welcoming.More

Stopped by for a quick bite during lunch because someone told me how great this place was! When I first arrived the staff were really friendly and knew about everything off the menu! The food took a little longer than I expected, but it was...well worth the wait! The restaurant is very spacious! It can hold many people! I had a burrito and it was at the top of my list for best burritos I have ever had! They also made things even better by placing a salsa bar in the restaurant, so you can pick out multiple salsas to have with your chips. The salsa’s were very good! I would highly recommend anyone to go there. It was a very good lunch!More

The food is all very good. Favorites include steak quesadillas, steak fajita burrito and shrimp tacos. The owner is very friendly and is often cooking along with her staff. Love the chipotle mild salsa and the pico.Everything is made to order and fresh.

My husband and I have been going to Chicks and Salsa for years for lunch or dinner. . It’s an ultra casuall Mexican restaurant that we rely on for very good Mexican food when we don’t feel like cooking or we get home late. .But...my sister always wants to go there when she is in town. They have an extensive menu, the food is made to order from fresh ingredients and most important the food is really good. They have the best fish tacos in the western suburbs. My husband loves the chicken burritos that come with red or green sauce and your choice of beans I love their great guacamole. And the chicken dinner is a real deal. I see lots of families ordering that. I also like lthat I can get grilled vegetables as a side or grilled veggie quesadillas when I want to eat healthy. You can even order grilled salmon. Another thing we like is the salsa bar with more types of freshly made salsas than I’ve seen anywhere, The owners name is Cindy and she is always doing things for the community. In the summer they have outdoor tables so we bring our 2 golden retrievers along after going to the dog park. Inside it looks a bit like a fast food place but don’t be fooled. It’s way way better than that. PS A lot of people do takeout.More

I ate here twice while in Lombard on business. The nachos were off the chain! I also had the tacos and wish I had gotten them the first time I was there. They were so good! To bad we don't have one of these restaurants...in Georgia.More

We end up ordering from this place regularly. The food is delicious—best sweet potatoes ever. Good guacamole and salsa and everything Is fresh. When we get delivery they sometimes miss the salsa, which is disappointing. Really great food for an on-site gathering.

It has been a while since we've been and I wanted to update the review. Tacos and Quesadillas are still great and love that you can help yourself to the salsa and pico de gallo. I tried the grilled chicken again and still found it...a bit dry. Loved the flavor on the skin but think I'll skip it next time. It must be hard to make sure the meat is still juicy and make sure it's cooked through. I wonder if they marinate first? A soak in salted water helps keep meat moist. We really love their corn muffins. I tried a steak taco salad and it was good. They are in a strip mall on the edge of Glen Ellyn which has lost its anchor store. The incoming new business is a couple of years out. I hope they do well in the interim as it is easy to overlook unless you have the destination in mind.More
