Hearty portions and great service

Our family ate here while visiting Salem and really enjoyed this restaurant. The Mexican food was really delicious. They bring you homemade chips and salsa right away and the burritos are enormous.

Love this place. Great margaritas and a menu that is more than just standard mexican food. Taco Tuesdays and Wing Wednesdays are great, but this place can get REAL crowded. A younger crowd.

Went in looking for a quick bite and ended up having a full meal. Loved their take on chicken wings, our quesadilla came loaded with lots of extras, the guacamole was delicious. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

My boyfriend and I go to Howling at least once a week. The food is always good, and the staff is always super friendly! My favorite dish are their enchiladas, and their beer list is big for such a small establishment! I recommend it for everyone, especially if you are just visiting the area, there's usually a wait but it... More

Good variety of food, and excellent quality overall. Prices are very reasonable. The place was packed the night we were there. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table, but it was worth it. The service was acceptable but due to the very busy nature, our server was obviously running all over the place, so refills on drinks... More

From the first plate of chips and salsa to the entrees this place is excellent. I come here regularly for lunch with a friend who introduced it to me. Not only is the wait staff friendly and very efficient, but I find this to be a good value.

So glad we stopped here! Great food at a price that won't break your budget. Big portions too; I couldn't finish all of my dinner. The drinks were nice; strong, not watered down at all. One white Sangria did me in! Fun music playing, attentive staff right there to assist or bring food. The chips and salsa on the table... More
