The restaurant is convenient and within walking distance to most hotels just along the main road. We ordered a couple of beers (only bottle) but good selection and cold. The service was very good and the food was average-good. Chips/salsa were plentiful and tasty and the prices were reasonable (~$10/most meals). I'd definately eat here again if I was in... More

We were very happy with dinner here. Food was great, the wait staff were friendly, made good suggestions and gave us a sample of a new salsa there were trying. Everyone, from kids to adults enjoyed their meals. Prices were average. Would definitely recommend and would go back if we are in the area again.

We got out of Yosemite late and weren't sure what dinner options we'd have when we got back to Mariposa. Salvador's provided tasty food and good service at a good price. (No hard liquor license)

Was visiting Yosemite for a few days and decided to stay in Mariposa. Looked for dinner options and we decided to try Salvador's. We really liked the food! This was definitely a family run business and the food was amazing, especially if you like spicy, they have options for those more adventurous than me.

Very good Mexican food after a fun week exploring Yosemite Park. Good interior and a speedy waitress made it a good restaurant to stop at. Recommend!

There are two Mexican restaurants in Mariposa. We chose this one based upon the reviews and were not disappointed. We ordered shrimp dishes that were very good. They also had sangria on special that was a nice treat. We enjoyed it.

Great food, great value and excellent service. Portions were very generous and delicious. Often, when traveling near a place like Yosemite, the restaurant fare can be disappointing; however, Mariposa, is filled with wonderful little restaurants. We hope to return to Mariposa and Salvador's.

Travelling with our nine-year-old Godson, we were seeking a Mexican restaurant upon our return from Yosemite National Park. After three days of hiking, we had an appetite for hearty, flavourful food that would satisfy not only the child, but also his adult companions. We checked out several sites including Tripadvisor to help us find the right fit for us. Salvador's... More

The service was great and the food typical american mex. Portions can be large. Waitress warned us on the childrens selections so we had them share - good decision.
