Food at this place is good. It's a serve yourself type of place so you go to the counter to order and then when your food is brought over, you add your own salsas and sauces. HUGE portions!

On two occasions my local sales reps have taken me here. I assume it is a local place. Taste is great. Portions are great and the price is just above average for a sit down spot. Tasty salsa but you have to buy the chips?

A group of us were looking for a Deli and they were closed, so 5 of us popped in for a bite to eat and so glad we did. Nice people with a out of the Mexican Food Box taste. I had the Salmon Tacos and my friend had the TONY’S ALAMBRES both were delicious. If you are in SB... More

This was by far the best Mexican food I have had. We had Crab Enchilada and Chile Rilleno Burrito. Bothe the dishes were excellent. They have a nice bar where you can make your own salsa and that was interesting. We made like four different types and they were all good. The service is reasonable. You have to order and... More

Food was great, nachos weren't as amazing as I'd hoped but still really good. Burritos were amazing however! Great service and staff. Will visit again.

Nothing really stood out with the food to make me say "wow". The food was hot and tasted good. Service was ok. I think they got slammed with a lunch rush, so our waitress took a while getting to us. But that's ok...we were enjoying the beautiful SB weather.

Yesterday we went to La Salsa had chicken AND pork on the nachos sr crean and guac and cheese and it was less than $10 with a soda. And it was huge! Very fresh and delicious, fast... More
