Default Grande Jakes in Buffalo Grove, IL

So, I've visited this place a few times now, trying out different things.

And One of the reasons I love going there is the Salsa's. So many, so good.

So if you sit down, you get a fresh plate of warm tortilla chips, and then there is a Salsa Bar you can get a bunch from. I've tried all of them, and they are all awesome.

Grande Jake's -- Authentic Mexican Grill

I love to get the Southwest Chicken Wrap. So tasty. But I've had the Chimichanga's, Enchiladas...etc.

All good. But the Salsa is the main reason I go there.

I love the Mango Habanero salsa. So many chunks to bite into. Sweet with a bit of heat. Its not as hot as I thought it was going to be with the mention of Habanero.

I usually get the hottest salsa they have, but its not really all that hot. There is a mild burn that builds, but the flavor is good.

The chips come with a mild tomato salsa. Its thin and served warm, but tasty all the same.

I didn't realise there was location that was closer to my work, so one day on lunch I may have to try out the Rolling Meadows one.

Don't remember Dons Dock, but Grande is in the dunhill strip mall next to Dengeos.

There are two up this way, too. One is in Lindenhurst and the other in Antioch (it is now called Grande Letty's since she took it over).
