“One of THE BEST restaurants in Chicagoland!!!”
Review of Chicks N Salsa

Chicks N Salsa

Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 October 2017

This place is the one place I am always craving when I leave home, and wish had more than one location. Their food is healthy, so fresh, high quality, and super tasty. It's not going to taste like your traditional and heavy Mexican food, but it is still SO delicious! Their key item is their grilled chicken. You have to get at least one dish with chicken. Beyond that their seafood is fresh, they have an awesome little salsa bar, very reasonably priced, and a huge menu with everything and way more than you'd expect for a Mexican restaurant. Their photos on Instagram look like stock photos. You have to have to have to try this place. Take yourself, take the family, seriously, a staple!!!

There service here is great. The food is terrific. They have a salsa bar. They also do grilled chicken. It's to die for. All orders are served within a few minutes. I love the taco salad.

While Chicks N Salsa may look like just another fast food place from the outside, it's food is in a whole other league! My family's favorite is the justly-praised fish tacos, especially with the fried fish. Absolutely delicious!

This is one of our family favorites/date night favorites.
It's fast-ish food: you order and the food is brought to you (take-out also available).
It's healthy Mexican-style. Top-notch ingredients cooked in a health way, very fresh.
Clientele is mainly gringo, so I don't know how authentic it is, but it's not Taco Bell.
Their specialty is their roasted chicken. (Even though they say they have the best fish taco in Chicago land.) That is truly amazing--try the quarter chicken dinner. We also really like their burritos and burrito bowls.
Lots of good salsas at their salsa bar, fountain drinks, a selection of bottled soft drinks including Jarritos, really yummy chips.
Try this place whether you live here or are just visiting in the area.
My only issue is that the area back by the bathroom always smells bad. But that is far away from the serving/seating area.
