The food is delicious, authentic and very large portions. When in the area, I stop for lunch. Their Carnitas is awesome, the chicken dishes are very good and my boss believes their fajitas are the best she has eaten! Initial impressions of the outside of the building is misleading. Go inside and taste great Mexican food. The service is good,... More

The food is very good, authentic and large portion at reasonable prices. The service has always been excellent! My only complaints are; The parking, which is way too small for the crowds that patronize the place, the long waiting time during the lunch and dinner hours, the lack of an adequate AC, which makes it a little too humid when...

"If all restaurants were like this the world would be a better place!" This was a quote I overheard while eating here. When we arrived there was a 40 minute wait, there were just two of us so we sat at the bar which is open seating. We were seated immediately and within minutes had a frozen house Margarita $6.99...

I am shocked by the reviews for this place... this is not REAL Mexican food... having lived in a Texas border town for over 30 years, eating on both sides of the border, I think I have a pretty good idea of what GOOD Mexican food is and this is not it. The food was horrible and it was cold...... More

Salsa and Beer sounds like an American sports bar. And, I'm told that it is on Sundays. But, it really is an authentic Mexican restaurant where salsa is king...specifically molcajete salsa. Man,this sauce truly defines the meaning of taste and fire. I've had it with adovada on a sizzling platter and an adovada burrito, both amazing. Tried other things in... More

From the outside, this restaurant looks like a place you may want to keep driving by. Once inside, you will be amazed at how big and nice this Mexican Restaurant is. My colleagues and I had Carnitas, Shrimp Enchiladas, Beef and Chicken Tacos and Guacamole. The entrees were excellent! We have been back many times because the food it that... More

Bad parking. It is worth it though. the spicy bean dip instead of salsa with your chips is amazing! The rice tastes home made and every dish we tried was yummy!

Delicious Mexican food at great prices! You can feed two people with the potions they give you. From the bean dip they give you at first to the entrees and desserts, everything is delicious!
