The intimate setting, lively and fun goes well with the outstanding foodt!

Dinner on a weekday night is sometimes low key. Not so with this lively local hot spot.

Wow has this place changed and for the worst! The old manager (Charles) is gone and I don't know if there is even one now. I went for Happy Hour and sat on the patio. No server came. I went to find the hostess who ignored me for five minutes while chatting with her friends. I final got a menu... More

Went at 5:30 to catch happy hour. My wife and I ordered the carnitas. We were obviously were served yesterday's carnitas. They were very dry. I complained to the manager. He had all the compassion of ISIS. The young man didn't care a damn as long as we left post haste. This successful restaurant needs to upgrade their management on... More

Always good food, fresh and offer vegetarian options. Salsa Brava on Briargate Parkway is one of our favorite restaurants. Love this place......

Salsa Brava is one of our favorites, typically for chicken enchiladas, but today I found shredded chicken and Chorizo sausage enchiladas, with a lovely, spicy brown sauce - and these are the best flavors I have experienced since my early days in LAREDO, TEXAS. This menu item was recently added, and will be available for a few weeks. Our lunch... More

Spent the summer in Colorado Springs and learned of this restaurant from local family members. Mexican restaurants in the States serve different meals but they all taste the same. This restaurant breaks the rice, bean, meat pattern. After our first visit, this restaurant became our favorite for the duration of the visit. Their specials and items on the menu were... More

We love this little restaurant. It's in our neighborhood and there aren't many small great restaurants in our neighborhood. We usually go on Friday nights and there is always at least a 30 minute wait. I don't think the restaurant could have held more people last Friday night. Which makes it fun. The chips served with your drink are delicious,... More

I came here a few months ago and it was pretty good. Tonight....not so much. Ordered the carne asada, which was very tough. But, at least it had real good flavor. The enchilada was rubbery. The rice and beans were eh. The salsa was oily and chips tasted like burnt oil. A bit disappointing.

I came here about 2 1/2 years ago and didn't particularly like it. Then the last couple of months, my husband and I had been hearing rave reviews about it, so we decided to give it another try. Not really worth it, I'm sorry to say. The margarita was good, although VERY strong. The cheese crisp was tasty, but I... More
