We went there due to the overwhelming positive reviews. We went for lunch and ordered 2 lunch enchilada (red) plates, one Baja taco plate, one lunch burrito (shredded beef) plate, and steak taco plate. The red enchilada sauce very salty, heavy handed on the cumin, and flavorless. The Spanish rice was bland, the beans were dry and flavorless. The steak... More

I have lived in the Rockrimmon area for several years, but never paid a visit to Salsa Brava. The hubby and I decided to take the kids to check it out. We lived in Cali for 10 years so we were not sure this Mexican restaurant would be that good. We were wrong. The service was great. They greet you... More

I had read reviews in TA about the one in Briargate and was surprised to find this one in Rockrimmon which is much closer to my house. My brother and I decided to check this location out. It has a very nice outdoor space but we went inside. It was nice and comfy but very noisy. The wait staff were... More

We ordered the tacos - both beef and chicken to cater a large event. The manager Charles was very helpful in food selection and determining quantity. The food was delicious and a big hit with the group. The guac is to die for- 4 pints devoured in a matter of minutes. Excellent choice for catering or dine in!

I cant believe I'm actually saying this, but Salsa Brava has lost its edge. We went back twice because we assumed it was just a couple off times...but its been consistently mediocre lately. The enchiladas were bland, the meat was low quality, the beans were over cooked and the salsa was simply disappointing. Once or twice is understandable, but three... More

I had never eaten at this restaurant and was a little hesitant. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the fresh: salsa and chips, margaritas, cheese and onion enchiladas and the service. It was nice to have the option to order a la carte, without any extras. Overall, I was happy with my experience and will be back soon.

Great happy hour prices and choices; good food; good wait staff. Nice outdoor seating with a fireplace. Local neighborhood place with comfortable atmosphere. Manager (Charles) is excellent!

Our family stopped in here a couple times this past month. The first time it took at least 30 minutes and flagging someone down to get the order taken. That got the attention of management and the remainder of the meal the staff was more attentive. The second visit the service was just ok, but certainly not anything to rave... More

I was very impressed by the service here. I have been to few restaurants that in the last hour of service, have given so much. The food was incredibly fresh and the wait staff kept on coming. If you are looking for Mexican in the Colo springs area, look no further. If you go to salsa brava, you will love... More
