Great meal out for family of five, including two who until that point were unsure they liked Mexican food. After the first bite they were converted. Quesadillas were wonderful as was the Caribbean jerk chicken.

The service was great but the flavors were odd in the extreme.....adding curry to Mexican was too much for me. Very spicy as well!

This little Mexican food place on Patton Ave in downtown Asheville is where I had one of the best Mexican dishes I have ever had. All of the food is made fresh and in house right down to the flour tortillas, which they grilled to perfection. Our waiter was great. She told us about the restaurant since we said we... More

Best Mexican we have ever had. The veggie Fajitas were amazing. One of the best things I have ever tasted. The portions were so big we had more than enough left for dinner. Service was speedy and friendly. Would definitely go back!

Green Tomatoes-Spicy!!!!! Pork Plato-good not too spicy mostly-rice & beans in this dish were delish! In the heart of downtown. Nice service. Indoor, outdoor seats. We sat at small table in small alleyway which leads to One World Brewing (great!), was not distracting with people walking by. Dogs & kids at surrounding tables.

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.
