Nice food and everything but pricey, little choice to customize your meal, like in burritos and such, you don't see it made in front of you like you would in Boojum or el burrito, seems to be the go to place since it opens late though. Don't rule it out but shop around.

I had never eaten a Mexican food attempt that tasted less like actual Mexican food. It is not the worst but it is certainly not amongst the places I would recomend

This is perfect comfort food. Really big portions and all the food is made to order. Friendly helpful staff and good value menu. Would definitely come here again. More of a place to get takeaways rather then sit down in there.

I usually like La Salsa as long as its from the Mary St., branch - unfortunately when you order from Just Eat it comes from the Mainguard St., branch. Obviously there is different staff in each but maybe they should consult on the menu. It clearly states on the Just Eat menu that the Quesadillas come with sour cream but... More

Located on Mainguard street at the bottom of the town centre, La Salsa is a good option for some quick grub. Located strategically close to my favourite watering holes, if you're into mexican food, then you should really check this place out. Great value.

We had a group of 12 and ate dinner here. The meals were huge for the amount we paid. I ordered a meal deal, a 10" wrap thing that was quite large and some chips. The others got the 12" and 3 out of the 4 guys couldn't eat it all. The 2nd floor was the sitting area and was... More
