What a fantastic addition to the growing locally owned restaurants in Salisbury! We've eaten here several times over the past 2 years, trying out different dishes at lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch.

I am a Cuban native born and raised in Miami Florida now I live in Salisbury. Always come to Mambo Grill and tapas and order the pork (puerco asado) and the crispy beef (vaca frita) it's got those island spices and it taste same always. Highly recommended

My family and I love this place. If you're looking for authentic Cuban food this is the place for you. The food the drinks and the staff are great. They also own the lounge next door called MGL, it's a very cool place to hang out with your friends and family and the prices for the drinks in the tapas... More

This Cuban restaurant was such fun! Not only was the food great, but our excellent waiter was from Dublin & had a thick accent. Coconut beer? So good! It's a great find around the corner from the historic downtown. Get there early-it filled up fast-or make a reservation.

With wonderful food and service, it harkens back to the days of neighborhood eateries. Always order the plantains and they serve the best espresso ever tasted.

While in town on business, a local raved about this place so my group decided to check it out for dinner on a Wednesday evening. Its tucked away in a quiet little neighborhood so we didn't have to deal with a crowd or a lot of hustle and bustle. The restaurant had a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff was very... More

Not a chain restaurant! They take pride in every dish they offer and it shows in the authentic and vibrant flavors. This is a Cuban family cooking traditional, authentic Cuban food. Do yourself a favor and order the famous Cuban Sandwich and a Mojito. Great service, full bar and a killer craft beer selection at MGL! This is most definitely... More
