This needs to be updated. This location was across from the courthouse. This location is now closed. It now is a pizza shop.

A small piece of Mexico in downtown Salem. Authentic Mexican food with an intimate environment. They serve a rice drink that is quite good and each entree is made to order by authentic Mexicans.

This place would be fairly easy to overlook, but that would be a mistake. Great authentic food that you will not find anywhere else in the area. The food is fresh and the owner is very helpful. Highly recommend!

I'm currently crunching on a tasty homemade tortilla chip with handmade fresh guacamole on top. The place is on a street corner in downtown Salem. It's very charming and quite tasty!! Enjoy

A nice place to sit at the bar, chat with the owner, and enjoy fresh homemade good food. The torta with choritzo were excellent, quasidillas and enchalatas quite good, the various fruit drinks interesting. Highly Recommended.

A nice corner diner / lunch counter owned by a Mexican couple. The menu is more varied than the standard Mexican restaurant. A little small, but I've never had to wait to get a seat for lunch.
