“Good Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Cafe Salsa has been one of my favorite places for simple, tasty Mexican food. They offer a great variety of enchiladas, quesadillsa, and main dishes. Always have the starter of fresh tortilla chips and salsa as soon as you sit down. This place is a local favorite for its location, great food, and service.

“Overpriced Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have eaten here for a few years. The food is average mexican food--nothing special, but is very overpriced. Ditto for the drinks. Service is very good; but there are better values in the area for Mexican food.

“LOVE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

One of OUR favorite restaurants in the whole wide world! Been going there on a weekly basis for a good 2 years now (and before that I was a regular for 23+ years). We have tried almost everything on their menu now, and everything is delicious! Just recently, we tried their cheeseburger, and believe it or not it was AMAZING! We have NOTHING bad to say about this place. We would highly recommend the Ranchero Gold Margarita vs. their regular margarita though. ENJOY!!!

“Good Variety of Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food at this established restaurant is the biggest reason to dine here. Besides the traditional mexican fare, the menu always has a variety of tasty seafood dishes and several Carne Asada's. Several sides are offered with each entree( the black beans are much better than the refried beans) along with flour or corn tortillas. Each table gets a basket of flavorful taco chips and salsa once you are seated. Drinks though somewhat pricey, have plenty of alcohol. Flan makes a good dessert choice if you desire such. Nice bar area if you have to wait for a table with several TV's. Seating is comfortable with booths along the walls as well as regular tables in the large open space. Service is friendly and prompt though wait staff sometimes substitutes for each other so it can be hard to tell who is waiting on your table. Plenty of parking on restaurant property both in front, behind and alongside the building.
