We were short on time, so ordered burritos from their truck on the street. The restaurant is highly recommended by the locals and rightfully so. Service was fast and friendly. The Verde and Pork was great, as was the Carnitas Burrito.

I went into Salvador's with an open mind and left satisfied but unimpressed. I had a chicken enchilada.

Friendly helpful staff . Nice warm somewhat Mexican ambviance. Mexicans must have been in the kitchen. Food was good and served hot. Actually had some beans in the refrieds, and the rice was good. Enchiladas could have used more cheese. Salsa was sparse and a little watery. Good selection of Mex beer but no Modello Especial. One man musician good... More

Sal's is a great place for friends or family to enjoy. The menu also has burgers and fries for those that are not in the mood for Mexican. The servings are good sized and I have never left hungry. The service is usually quite good and the food is fresh and served with chips and salsa.

The food is consistent, and quite good. I have had the chicken tostada the last few times and it's just the right size and flavors for me. I have had full dinners and the beans and rice are good, but it's too much food! Chips and salsa are great...and ask for the cabbage salsa.

Right on the road to Yosemite,we stopped here for dinner. The food was delicious. The chili rellanoes and the pork in chili verde were both great dinner choices. The waitress was lovely and provided good service.

The dinners burritos were OK but nothing out of the ordinary. But then, except for Rick Bayless, most Mexican restaurants are average in my book. We stopped mainly because we thought Mexican would be a change of pace.

The restaurant does not look of much from the outside but it is very nice inside and you get the authentic feeling of Mexico. I ordered the combination platter and a local beer. The portion was overwhelming and good, but the food needed just a bit more taste - it did not taste much. Even though the taste could have... More
