First I have to say our server Jalen was wonderful and we had a great time with him. The bread was also great as was the chocolate cake we had for dessert. I wish I could say the meal was that good.

Introduced to Sal's a few years ago by my hubby, who used to live in Burlington. From what I understand, this local, family-owned Italian restaurant has been a staple in the community for years.

Just had the best Sunday brunch in Burlington, NC! Individually prepared omelets, freshly made waffles, all the Italian fare you could want, plus carved prime rib, lamb or ham. Desserts were plentiful as well. We will definitely be back. One note they do not open until 11:00.

This has been a local spot for great Italian dishes and pizza in Burlington for a long time. Locally owned with a great authentic menu. The fact that they have been around for so long is a testament to their great restaurant.

Reasonably priced, tasty Italian food in a warm friendly atmosphere. Though the clams in the Shrimp fra diavolo did not taste fresh, the shrimp and the sauce were very good.The Vela Parmesan looked great. the pizza was delicious.

The seafood stew was truly outstanding is both quality and quantity. Great value for your dollar. Recommended for special occasions or just a casual meal from pizza to outstanding Italian food

Good Italian fare but they need to work on their service. Pizza is good and it is a quick stop on across from the mall.

Excellent food! Italian is great, however, they have others on the menu that are equally as good. Great prices for the portions you receive. Piping hot right from the kitchen.

Recently stopped at Sal's after for a business lunch. They had very good pizza and quite a large selection of other Italian types of food.

By far a very good pizza for this area as well as other Italian foods. An old established restaurant, needs some updates in decorations. The Sunday brunch is excellent with a great variety of items available. Prices are reasonable.
