Holy guacamole !

They have the best guacamole, made right at the table. It is a meal in itself. So far I've enjoyed everything I've chosen so far. If I have one complaint, it is the tacos. My niece, who is not into Mexican food, orders the taco and the grease is dripping. She finds it difficult to eat that much... read more

We couldn't remember the name and had to look it up; we remembered where it was, though - right off exit 105 in Morganton, NC. The portions are outrageous and so are the prices. Tender meats, fresh vegetables, tasty sauces, good service, fantastic smells. You know when you get a ribeye and shrimp in a Mexican restaurant and it's better... More

The food at Las Salsas is the freshest and best flavored in town. The serving portions are huge and can easily be shared by two or three people or taken home for leftovers. The fish tacos are the best I have ever had and they offer a salad as a side that is so very fresh and perfect as the... More

I love eating here. Everything is so yummy! They have great services. Everyone is nice and welcoming! The only downfall is the tight parking spaces. But it's an amazing restaurant. I love the variety of salsas fore chips! Will definitely go eat there everyday if I could, haha.

They have a great salsa bar. It's worth the visit for that. Service is good. Give it a try, it's better than other Mexican places in town.

Please don't confuse this with the one in Marion. These people get it right. I drive right on past the one in Marion to go to the one in Morganton. Food is great and excellent service. They have been around much longer than the one in Marion so they have refined everything. Great Salsa bar.

The service and atmosphere is great. The best tacos in NC this side of Albuquerque, NM. Very authentic and tasty since I've had the real deal. No one can match the food around these parts.
