Great Mexican Eatery

Food is grilled versus fried like other places. Have eaten here for years and the food is always great. The steak is to die for.

Terrible place to eat. Even my husband and 14 year old son (who will both usually eat anything) didn't like it. They did give huge portions but if it's no good, why bother.

Every time I visit Morganton I go to Las Salsas. The cheese steak burrito is my favorite. My family of 4 can eat here and all have left overs for around 25 bucks. The portions are enormous! I hope they will build one in Asheville soon.

Wait staff is very friendly. we ordered the steak and chicken fajitas for one to share. The portions are huge and we still had some left to take home. We have eaten at this restaurant several times and the food is always consistently good. The salsa bar has a good selection. This is the best place to eat Mexican food... More

We ate here one day for lunch, I had the California burrito and man was it giant, I felt like I was in a burrito eating contest and took most of it home. Overall delicious food and great service.

We found this place back in January and drove an hour out of the way home just to eat today. Salsa bar is amazing and unique. We always get the football size burritos and that are always full of tasty meat, vegetables and covered in our favorite salsas and cheeses. It's something our 3 teenagers talk about when we mention... More

Had the good fortune of stumbling into this place for lunch. Food was amazing, and the service was top notch. If we find ourselves in Morganton again, we will be stopping here.

Some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. Dishes are prepared in a true Mexican style. The portions are huge. No way to finish your plate. The food is fresh and served steaming hot. Loved the salsa bar. Several salsas to satisfy everybody's "heat" desires -- from very mild to very hot. Will definitely go back.

Just off I-40, this popular authentic Mexican restaurant serves large portions of well prepared dishes. My wife ordered what amounted to a chicken burrito with a cream sauce, but was called something we'd never heard of, like a flautas or something. It was delicious! I ordered a la carte - one chile relleno and one fish taco, and we also... More

We eat here about 1 time a month. The featured menu come from a different region of Mexico and has an almost completely different feel from the traditional menu that being said, the food is excellent, always fresh, and the featured salsa bar always has a nice variety of different and tasty sauces. The portions are huge. I cannot finish... More
