Saltillo Mexican Kitchen doesn’t have quite the luster of its predecessor, La Casa Del Caballo, and that has little to do with relocating to a strip center space in the Bellaire triangle. The program of remarkable, well-seasoned meat — especially beef and lamb — is still intact. Side items, though, like the once-luscious cheese enchiladas and even simple items like charro beans and roasted potatoes, have really gone downhill. Visit La Casa Del Caballo for a steak dinner or the most perfect thick lamb chops in town, or feast on the nearly famous four-pound lomo (rib eye cap) with three or four friends. There are plenty of beefy red wines that are fine companions for all of that protein, but those in search of an excellent, well-rounded meal that includes all four food groups will be left wanting. Service at dinner was much more attentive than at lunchtime, when we were left waiting to order for more than 20 minutes.
