The service, the food, and the value can't be beat. We stopped in here on our way through Albuquerque, and it won't be our last visit. The staff was friendly and the food was amazing. We had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated but it was worth it. They have the best salsa I've ever eaten... And I've... More

We have been coming here since the 1980's, you will not find a better relleno in all of Albuquerque! Never a bad experience in probably a 100 visits over the years! Make sure you check the hours though as they are abbreviated.

My family now has the third generation dining at La Salita. The sopapillas are the best you'll ever have. They use real honey (not honey sauce like some restaurants) and real cheese. They love kids and make special kid sopapillas themed with the time of the year. Family restaurant where you are treated like family!

Simply incredible to think this restaurant could be rated 5 stars. The food is fine. It's the same fare you could get in any old Mexican restaurant in any American city. There's really nothing that stands out. You pour some chille sauce on a Mexican dish and it becomes New Mexican. It makes it tastier but it does not make... More

We heard about this on tripadvisor. We had the chile Rellanos and they were fabulous. Crispy with just the right amount of spice. Service was quick and efficient. Our waitress even gave us the name of a great place to celebrate afterwards.

We have enjoyed this restaurant for 30 years. The salsa is homemade as is all the food. The best offerings are in the combination platers. The shredded beef burrito is so-o-o good. They expanded the size if the restaurant which makes it much faster to be seated. They also added a favorable liquor selection. The family atmosphere makes this restaurant... More

We had read about La Salita on TripAdvisor, and our dining experience lived up to all of our expectations.Our party of four was very hungry after a busy day of activities, and our lovely waitress kept the chips and salsa coming until our dinner was served. The salsa was warm and delicious. We all loved the different items that we... More

Growing up in Albuquerque and moving away for college and jobs, La Salita is my absolutely favorite restaurant still. It's the first place I stop at whenever I come home. The salsa is absolutely incredible and we keep a stock of it here in Dallas (thank you for selling that now). Service is fast, but get there early as there... More
