“The lack of service is worth the wait for food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Very slow service but great food! Right off Duval street. The slow service is indicative of south Florida.

“Resurrected Key West treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Salsa Loca went on hiatus for a few months but is now back in a charming new location off of Duval Street in Key West. As in its earlier incarnation, best to stick to the house specialties which are great, much better than the generic Tex/Mex fare. Camarones ala Diablo is my favorite. Brunch offerings including huge breakfast burritos could almost feed an entire family. Yum!

“Glad They Are Back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stopped in for dinner during our recent trip. Service was friendly and spot on. The owner Nancy made it a point to stop by each table to check on things. Started the meal with an order of queso, which was amazing. Just the right amount of heat to it. Tacos al Pastor & Carne Asada followed, both excellent. Great meal, service and at a decent price.

“Good food, service, atmosphere, and price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

On a tip from a friend, checked this place out for the first time. Visiting the Keys, we were made to feel 'part if the family' and welcomed by staff and customers. We ordered from the house specialities, Veggie Sincronizada with chicken, and it was an absolute delight. Thanks so much. We will be back!

“Go if you like soggy, unappetising food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Had lunch there. Ordered all your typical Mexican food. It was vile. Soggy and tasted as if it would give you a dodgy tummy. Safe to say had a couple of bites and left. Revolting.
