Real Mexican Food not Fast Food Mexican

Really, Really Good Mexican Food!!! An abundant menu offers many choices to the patrons. The salsa bar in good but is limited to only one "mild" choice. I like hot/spicy food so it didn't bother me, but my wife found all but one choice to be too hot for her. The food is fresh and cooked to order... read more

We really enjoyed this popular Mexican restaurant. The salsa bar had several tasty choices of homemade salsa with varying degrees of heat. The lobster and shrimp enchiladas were delicious. We tried the sopapillas for dessert...yummy. The service was very friendly and quick, and the prices were very reasonable. We would definitely eat here again.

We loved eating here...obviously the food is Mexican but the salsa bar is unique. It works like a salad bar except it is salsa. There are about 5 or 6 different salsa choices. You get little dip bowls and can try a variety of homemade salsas with chips. The lobster and shrimp enchiladas with a cilantro cream sauce are really... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were glad we took their advice. Plenty of great chips and a salsa bar. Great entrees and nice size portions. Quick and courteous service and great price. Loved it.

Not the best at all food obviously sat on plates for a while before being served and food was bland when it came. Service was good though

Ever been to a restaurant where the atmosphere was great and the service was exceptional but the food was just so so. We recently ate here recently on the suggestion of many people who raved about it, it wasn't bad but just very average, the service however was really outstanding and it was a cool place.

Arriving at 7:45 on a Tuesday I was surprised to have to wait for seating. This place is popular. I had spinach burrito with some creamy sauce. Mighty tasty. Price was reasonable as well. Service was good. Waiters very attentive. Food slow in coming. The place was full.

We love going here on weekends for Navajo Tacos, Burritos, or Carnitas plates. They have a salsa bar with 5 or 6 different kinds of salsa, from the very tame to devilishly spicy! Their food is always fresh and hot, and the waitstaff is great. Their margaritas are good too! I'm still looking for a Mexican restaurant in Flagstaff that... More

This was my 2nd visit to Salsa Brava Restaurant. This visit was much better than the 1st visit because our Server was excellent and very attentive. The food was just as good as our first visit but I loved the dish I chose this visit. I had a Chicken Burrito with a Cilantro Cheese sauce with a side of fresh... More

I have been going to Salsa Brava since the 90's. Every year they add new tastes and provide a favorite I can't get enough of. Particularly love the salsa bar and fish tacos for my fast lunches.
