The best chef in town!

Some of the best food I've ever eaten. Very classy yet down to earth, nice and clean restaurant. The pride of Salisbury. I love everything about this place and Chef Santos unique Brazilian flair is like no other around. Highly recommended!

I was with a group of 11. Everyone was very complimentary about their food and we had quite a variety. One of our group is gluten intolerant and the waitress and chef readily accommodated his dietary needs. The service was helpful and timely and the waitress was attentive and handled our large group with ease. The restaurant is located in... More

Recommended by a local, I ate at Chef Santos restaurant a couple months ago. Had the scallops au gratin. Very tasty meal. A relaxed, comfortable setting. Price was reasonable. Family atmosphere. I'll go back.

As usual the food was fabulous. We have never been disappointed dining at chef Santo's. The restaurant was very busy but the service was perfect and timely. If you make a reservation which you should ask for Isabella if she is available. Great waitress

We have journeyed "across the river" from Davidson County twice and have found it to be excellent both times. We are looking forward to our third visit. Wonderful Italian!

Chef Santos in Salisbury, NC, is an excellent chef owned and operated restaurant. We have eaten there 3 times, and we will continue to go back there. (We live in a town that is a 45 minute from Salisbury, so this restaurant is not close to us, but it worth the drive when we have the time.) On our most... More
