We eat here at least once a month and love how fresh the food is. The portions are so big we always take home a goodie bag. We like the atmosphere and brightly colored décor. This is a go to place for delicious and FRESH food. The price point is also very good making it affordable to eat for most... More

We were walking around looking for a place to grab a quick lunch an stumbled on Salsa's. The name isn't very creative but the food is a different story. Highly recommend anything with the shredded pork. I had the quesadilla and it was divine. The smoked tomato salsa was also incredible! Portions are huge.

This is simply a fun place to be... and the food is great. Huge, varied menu and great outdoor dining friendly to dogs. We love Salsa and will return often.

A friend told me to eat here, that it was "her favorite in the whole world". Now I see why...service was great, food was amazing, and great atmosphere. Unfortunately it's a smaller restaurant which means you have to wait, but it's definitely worth it!

Having returned from our 3 week road trip in the USA I need to write about how great Salsas is! The food was delicious and atmosphere fun and laid back. It was a real twist on Mexican fusion food and quite literally our waiters arms!

Fantastic little find in downtown. The staff was great. Our waiter was actually excited to talk about the menu and all the different dishes. We had a couple of dishes and they were fantastic. It was so good we didn't even want to speak so as not to miss a tasty bite. All the other tables were raving about their... More

Food was awesome and fresh. Awesome idea to mix Caribbean and Mexican food. Beer selection was great with lots of local breweries.

If you think you've already had every kind of Mexican dish/flavor out there, try this place. The large variety of dishes/flavors to choose from was new & exciting for those of us who are a bit more adventurous, although there were plenty of recognizable dishes for the picky eaters in our party of 8 too! We started with a plate... More

What a find, we meet a couple at another bar and they suggested we meet up at Salsa's - we are so pleased we did. Food is amazing, from the home made stuffed chili peppers to their signature Pow-Pow's and Lava rock dishes, The food is hot ( as in spicy ) but you will not be dissapointed.
