This was our 4th time to eat in this Mexican restaurant across 2 different trips to Flagstaff. It's been on the Food Channel and it's easy to see why. Popular with families and includes a great fresh salsa bar for mixing your own. Go early because it's always crowded.

Salsa Brava is delicious if your in town this is a must to checkout. Chicken mole enchiladas were fantastic. Margaritas were great as well.

The salsa bar was very good. Had about 8 salsas. From mild to hot . I had the chile rellenos was good. But did not use poblano peppers. If they did it would have have made them excellent.

Pretty good food, but don't go for happy hour. The server was rude and did not let our group sit together, service was very slow, and portions were small. A longtime resident of Flagstaff, I've had Salsa Brava many times for lunch and dinner, with pretty good food, but have never had as bad service at any restaurant here in... More

We had seen this restaurant featured on Food Network Canada ( Triple D with Guy Fieri) so decided when we were in the area to give it a try. Arrived around 11:30 am and the parking lot was filling up rapidly ! Brooke, our server was attentive; explained the details of the dishes as well as the salsa bar. In... More

Had dinner here on Sunday night of spring break. Our wait was around 10 minutes and service was good. We ordered the carnitas and the green chili burrito . Both were very good and had enough left over to eat leftovers one night during the week. Had a huge salsa bar with varying flavors and temperatures. Chips, however, were not... More

We stopped here for lunch on a short trip to Flag from our home an hour away. We'd never been in there and based it on a drive by that showed a lot of folks in the parking lot. What we got was excellent. The meals came with the obligatory rice and beans. The comparison stopped there. The rice was... More

Very fresh food. It was fun to try all the salsas, although even the hot wasn't too hot by Texas standards. My husband had the Navajo Taco since he wanted to eat "What Guy Ate" - it was huge. The homemade guacamole was perfect and the sopapillas made of fry bread were fantastic.

We decided to give this restaurant a try after seeing it on the food network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It was just OK. The salsa bar was cool since we got to get our on salsa and mix and match different flavors. The food was pretty generic as far as Mexican food goes. I was expecting to be wowed... More
