El Mirador serves their food piping hot. Likely the best Mexican food in Salem. Very family friendly with a steady local resident clientele. Can be very busy at times, but wait staff is very good and keep tables turning without appearing rushed.

Passing through Salem we had a yen for Mexican food. This restaurant was just minutes off Hwy 5. We had really good salsa and chips with Enchiladas Too bad we were driving or we would have tried the Marguerite. Inside very cute with good Mexican music. Large menu so something for everyone.
