The one on PCH in Malibu was less than a block from my condo, so I hit it several times when no one else in our group was hungry. The food was larger quantities and the veggies were fresher than all the chains in Ohio. One day during lunch hour I forgot to pick up my bag of churros, and... More

La Salsa is so tasty after a surf. There is nothing different about this location than the others...Close to the beach and usual menu with standard mex-gringo quick service food. You'll see some of the same people (that dropped-in on you) chowing on a burrito. Here's the best the idea about La Salsa...Don't leave your trash & leftovers on the... More

This is my go-to stop for casual mexican food when traveling to Malibu. Many locals go here too, and call-in their orders in advance. Food is made fresh to order and seems to be a popular roadside attraction with the nice ocean breezes (if you sit outside), beach and giant statue with the sombrero on top of the building. This...

We were traveling north on PCH and made a random stop. Wow, this place was good and they were constantly busy too. Now I know why. Food was very flavorful. The salsa bar was a feature. there were at least 8 different types of salsa ready and fresh for your meal. They ranged from tame to hot and are all... More

Same as all the the other La Salsa's - pretty good mexican food. Right on PCH - not much parking - you will probably need to park along the highway.

For something quick and local, La Salsa is good. They have a "La Sala Bar" with several types of salsas, pico de gallo, cilantro and fresh cut limes. They're all very fresh. Their breakfast burrito and breakfast tacos are tasty and filling. If you just want some good, simple Mexican food without waiting in a sit-down restaurant and with sit-down... More
