“REALLY good!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

My daughter kept telling me that Salsa Grille was the place to go, finally I tried it. LOVE the quesadilla and to be honest is the only item I ever order on the menu. The service is great and the salsa bar options are amazing. I would say the the ONLY downfall of the restaurant is the seating which can be limited and due to the order and then sit style sometimes the tables are not the cleanest. This is easy to overlook once I start eating. A must try in Fort Wayne.

“Fresh Salsa Bar Adds Pizzazz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This recently opened, locally-owned Mexican restaurant had customers standing in line for a good reason -- It's terrific! Menu items are "How do U want it?" style ... Choose your "outer layer" (taco/burrito/quesadilla/nachos/crispy tortilla shell/or simply a bowl). Then select what "U want inside" .... the veggie style consists of scrumptious sauteed fresh peppers, sweet onions, zucchini & spices. 7 meat options are also on the menu. Many ingredients are available to add, such as beans, rice, guacamole, cheeses, etc. Complimentary unlimited chips are included ... Perfect for sampling the fabulous (complimentary) fresh salsas! My favorite is the grilled pineapple & chipotle salsa (made of fresh, charred pineapple, smoky chipotle chilies, & lime). Prices are really reasonable!

“Average. Not bad but not really good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

With a name like salsa grill I'm thinking salsa, right? Not really. Average again. Food wasn't bad but a cut under chipotle. Not bad to try, good portions.

“Excellent Mexican food, locally owned and operated – a cut above the rest.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

As others have said, it is very similar to Chipotle or Qdoba, but absolutely a cut above. To start with, there are better meat choices here. For example the Pork carnitas – a smoky, slow roasted, pulled pork that is just superb. The Carne Asada (beef steak cut into little chunks) is just fantastic as well and the chicken choices are also a good bet. You also have choices of different beans and rice dishes as well and all are very good. Ingredients taste high quality and the service is always courteous and attentive.
The menu and choices can be a bit overwhelming as the staff assembles your order before your eyes. Step back and watch others go through the line first if you are worried about sticking out as a rookie. There is a much broader selection of menu options and in-house made salsas than the similar restaurants mentioned, and this place is locally owned and operated by experts in diverse cuisine.
There is limited table space and it can fill up at times, but this is an excellent addition to the Fort Wayne restaurant scene. Give it a try!
