Decent Mexican for the East

Had lunch on my own here waiting for afternoon meetings. Had the chipotle burrito, which was fresh and satisfying. Music was a little louder than I normally like, but since it wasn't crowded and I was alone it was okay. Service was friendly, although not as attentive as in better restaurants. Seems... read more

This is by far one of the best on the Virginia Peninsula with great service and good food. As we all know this type food is not the healthiest but it sure as hell taste great. We had dinner followed by a movie. It's a fantastic value.

Second visit a year later with some friends for dinner. Seating was quick... Service was very friendly and fast, but the food still had tex-mex taste. Needs to improve. It was karaoke night so we had quite a local show. All I can say is wow!

Had lunch with a friend who recommended this place. The interior decor was very festive. We were there for lunch and this day it was not very crowded. We found the service just so-so and not very friendly. I felt like I was bothering the waitstaff when asking for something. I got a combo plate and tried a taco, an... More

Hey, I'm sorry to say that this was one of the worst food experiences that I've ever had. I've never been to Salsa's before and heard good things about it so I wasn't prepared for what I got. The hostess was ok and the waiter was prompt but the food was very bland. I guess it's an Americanized version of... More

Salsa's continues to be a great place to enjoy a bit of Mexican ambiance and food. Of particular note are their shrimp tacos. Good value for a good price.

Went here with a friend for lunch today. Neither of us ate more than a few bites. I am convinced their red sauce is just canned vegetable soup. My enchilada even had a couple of green beans on it. The service was awful. Our waitress didn't even say hello, she just stood there looking at us, then impatiently asked if... More

My daughter and I found this restaurant accidentally and were delighted by our find. The decor was impressive, the food delicious, the service top notch and the prices reasonable. We had a guacamole appetizer that was prepared at our table. It was yummy! The wait staff was gracious and efficient. If I lived in Newport News, I would be a... More

The service and food was outstanding. Very reasonable prices and lots of menu choices. A group of us ate there at lunch and will definitely return when in the area again.
