Just OK

Least fun I have had in a Mexican restaurant. Just not a fun atmosphere - which to me is half the experience. The food was Ok - but my Chimichanga was not really crispy - more like a Burrito that had been steamed. Staff were patronizing at times and it felt like we were a burden on their time... read more

Having seen the restaurant while driving through en route to our accommodation we returned for dinner and were not dissapointed. The restaurant has a lot of character with blanket decorations around the walls and four tv's showing basketball. Unfortunately. At least three was no no of the game just pleasant background music.

Cheerful, friendly service. Food was fresh and flavorful. Arrived quickly. A new favorite for Mexican food in Mariposa in spite of their lack of a full liqueur license... No margaritas, beer only.

We arrived late in the afternoon in the Mariposa area. We were recommended to this place as being relaxed and serving good food at a reasonable price. A great recommendation. Service was very efficient and friendly. The chips and freshly made salsa were good. The enchiladas and burrito were both very tasty and large portions. A nice easy lunch.

Cute little place with a really relaxing vibe. Chips and salsa and guac were a bit on the average side. The rest of the food was out of this world! Very yummy. No margaritas though...

Good food. Friendly and attentive waitstaff. Chip salsa was a bit like picante sauce but it was fresh made. The chimichanga with shredded beef was excellent.

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

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.
