Pleasantly surprised!

This place is located next to a busy liquor store in a strip mall, so I was a little skeptical. Walked in, lighting is a little weird and dingy. Our server was brusque and non-chatty, which is perfectly fine considering he got our order 100% correct, and I have never in my life had faster or better... read more

We stopped in with visiting friends for dinner. I tried a combination platter. Located in the shopping center at the corner of Conant and the Anthony Wayne Trail, across from the Maumee Indoor theater. The food was better than I expected, on par with El Vaquero and Casa Barron, but the location is not as fun or pleasant. The service... More

El Salto is our go-to Mexican restaurant. The service is always fast and attentive even when they are packed. The food is authentic Mexican, not the knock-off you get at many places. Prices are reasonable and portions are big. A plus are the 15% off coupons they send you every month. Location is great and has plenty of parking.

My daughter and I went to El Salto for lunch this week and the food was just ok. I had chicken enchiladas. The sauce was quite good but there was just a whisper of cheese on them. The menu said this came with guacamole but there was just a tiny bit of that. My daughter had a combo plate and... More

I'm staying in Maumee and had my mind set on Mexican food. The sign says "authentic" but of course I was skeptical. Turns out it's delicious!! Enchilada sauce is delicious...hard taco she'll very tasty...refried beans a great texture. I am drinking a lime margarita, which is very good. I just opened an order of flour tortilla and they have a... More

The lighting was horrible. The food was salty. The service was terrible and the tables were sticky. I will not go back.

Anyone who calls this place authentic has never eaten Mexican food in Mexico or our border states. I can't say it was bad just not very inspired. We prepare Mexican food at home that has more flavor than this place. Given the number of Mexican restaurants in the greater Toledo area I would suggest almost anywhere before I would ever... More

Well, I was told to go here by the recommendation of a friend as they were supposedly the "best Authentic Mexican" around. Well, if this is authentic Ill stick to the other Mexican restaurants in town. The wait staff was friendly, but not over the top friendly. Not very personable but they did take care of us pretty well. NO... More
