It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that after 25 years, Salvador's Mexican restaurant in Chicago is closed. The home of the burrito suizo grande and the monster margarita. (On the rocks with salt) I was with them thru 3 locations, and a couple of name changes. Gone.
We had some good times, didn't we?
- You introduced me to queso fundido with carrizo. Loaded into a nice flour tortilla. Yum.
- It was in your dining room that I heard the acoustic version of Elton John's "Nikita" played on Spanish guitar.
- The double grande margarita night. That was a long train ride back to the burbs. And a cold nap in the car so that I was okay to drive home.
- And you are the place where I had my going away party from Kirkland last Cinco de Mayo.
And "Yes," that is a fishbowl full of margarita. Muy bueno!
