This place has great food and the service is very good. The only negative I have to give them is the fact that the restaurant is small and depending on when you go you may have to wait for a table. Good news is that the food is worth the wait though.

I met a friend here for lunch on a Monday. Restaurant was not crowded at all. They have a fresh salsa bar with several different flavors. I ordered from their lunch specials. Food was good, not an overly large portion. Service was average. Will probably eat here again.

I am not crazy about Mexican food -- usually too spicy for me. We were visiting our son and his family for a long weekend and he suggested this restaurant. It was absolutely scrumpcious! Not too much in the way of ambiance, but the food was excellent and it is obviously locally popular, the place was packed.

We have visited three times in a month. From the fresh salsa bar, reasonable lunch menu with great fajitas, wonderful margaritas and tons of fresh choices for dinner the experience is a real culinary treat. Throw in the nice owners, Moses and Lisa and it is a stop in Salem you will not want to miss.
