Sal's is a family-owned restaurant; originally started in Selma, California about 15 miles South of Fresno. The staff work very hard to make your visit comfortable: from expediting seating to cashing out the tab. Start out with chips and salsa...the salsa is so good it is often packaged to take home from the restaurant. There are several local grocery stores... More

Very good Mexican food delivered with a family attitude. Try the "Mexican shrimp cocktail ". A real surprise, enough for two. It can become very busy but they seem to handle things very nicely. Good margaritas.

Sal's is a great family-run Mexican food restaurant! Fast seating, great chips and salsa, and wonderful (and reasonable) selection of foods. Our family favorite is the chimichanga filled with shredded chicken and mole sauce. Yum! Sal's is a great spot to grab a bite to eat before or after a trip to River Park shopping center. The family also has... More

The line can get a bit long but call ahead of just go. They have a large seating area and the friendly host will seat you quickly. The start your service with beverages and... More

My last evening in Fresno and I asked one of my coworkers who lives here where I could find a good Mexican restaurant. Told me I was lucky, Only if you blocks from where I was staying was Salles. The restaurant is in a mini mall with neon signs stating "Sals' open since 1942". Very clean, great atmosphere, outside dining,... More

My husband and I went to Sal's after reading about it on Trip Advisor and we're glad we did. We arrived at about 8:00 on a Saturday night and were seated promptly. The menu is large and has a wide variety of items. We each had a 3-item combo that also comes with beans and rice. My husband had Sal's... More

We had a large group. Service was OK. They were quick to get us drinks. Food took a little longer. If you are on a diet, don't eat here. But if you like to eat, this will do. I ate around 4 pm. It is after 11 pm and I am still stuffed. I tried to go out for a... More

At the recommendation of a coworker, I visited Sal's for dinner on a Saturday night. The short wait was well worth it. The restaurant is none too fancy, but is nicely decorated and clean. The wait staff was prompt, pleasant and efficient. At the recommendation of another customer, I tried the Chili Verde Burrito. WOW! The burrito covered the entire... More
