So Delicious!

I would've never thought to try this place if it wasn't for my co-workers. I've been working in this neighborhood for 15 years and I've missed out on this place? It's really good! And it's an obviously popular place. The parking lot was packed. It's really really good! Tasty Mexican. Will go... read more

Solid 3 stars. Yes, the parking sucks but at least they now have a system in place with guys in the parking lot directing you to the next open spot. We dropped someone off yo put our name in (45 min wait at 8pm on a Thursday) then waited in line for a parking spot. So by the time we... More

We found this gem with our trustful Trip Advisor reviews. We went on a Sunday evening around 5 and had an hour and fifteen minute wait. They text you when your table is ready which is convenient. It ended up being a 45 minute wait. My husband and I both had the spicy carne Asada fajitas (not actual name sorry)... More

Salsa and Beer, 2 of lifes must have food items in anyone's life! Expect to wait for a table here, it is a daily go to place for friends and family. They offer friendly service, an amazing menu to choose from, a salsa bar to scoop as much as you want, and the plates of food are most shareable for... More

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
