Lunch Visit

Stopped here for lunch with a friend, I ordered one of the lunch specials, my friend one of the daily specials. The food was very good, served quickly, and our total bill including tip was under 22 dollars.

We have been going here for years and love it so much. The people who work there are so friendly, and the prices are right! Favorites include the shrimp chipotle which is tender and slightly smoky and spicy. My family always orders the Alambre steak dinner which they love. It comes with sautéed peppers and onions and a nice Mexican... More

this was my first time here as a visitor. I don't even live around here. the thing I ordered wasn't even on the menu so they kinda just threw what I wanted together. even when all I wanted was 3 ingredients, it still wasn't very good. I have still not found a Mexican restaurant that surpasses Los Portales in Indiana.... More

Prior to attending a play at Maumee Indoor Theater, a rather large group of us thought we'd grab a quick bite at El Salto. I arrived 15 mins after my group and they had already ordered a water for me. Thank goodness for that as the server never asked if wanted or needed a drink. In fact my server never... 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

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 service. He was... More
