My wife and I visited for dinner on Saturday evening of holiday weekend. The menu is lengthy and server was excellent. Margarita and tea both are very good. The San Jose burrito was fabulous quality and adequate to feed several people, fortunately take out containers are available. My wife enjoyed her meal and also found it to be quite large.... More

We decided on an early dinner. The place had other early eaters in it and everyone seems to enjoy their food. The Margaritas make the food even better. Be sure you order the "Gold Margarita."

We stopped for dinner at the Salsa's mex mex grill in Aiken. I should have known there was a problem when there was no one at the door and it took a few minutes for anyone to come over and show us to a table. The workers seem to be doing their best but seem to be understaffed. The beer... More

My wife and I totally enjoyed our meal. Great drinks and even better food. Amount of food is very large. Size pales when compared to the quality. Excellent service. We whole totally recommend the restaurant and will return.

After a long day of driving in the rain, this little bistro was quite a treat. We had good Mexican beers, and I had the San Jose burrito (excellent). My son had something more exotic with extra spicy sauce. This place reminded me of an excellent chain of Mexican places we have in Virginia--Plaza Azteca. Very good staff! The manager... More

Thursday nights can be a treat when we go to Salsa for the $1 tacos and top shelf margarita. Can be crowded at times but wait times are generally minimal. Many other menu items worth trying as well such as the fiesta taco salad or brisket chimichanga. Service is adequate and food is tasty. Overall our go-to place when we... More

I decided to try this place after a couple of terrible experiences at Mi Rancho. So glad I did! I eat here at least a few times a month for lunch now. Food is amazing 99% of the time, but once in a blue moon it can be a little inconsistent. I've never once been disappointed with the service though.

The meal I got was supposed to be chilaquiles mexicanos. It was very poorly seasoned a lot of onions and tomatoes but no flavor. House margarita was very watered down so I got a 2nd one which was supposed to be their specialty one. No kick there either.

Seems to be popular with the locals. In my party, four adults dined here. Entrée choices varied, including steak fajitas, chicken enchiladas, and beef tacos. Beer choices included a Mexican brand as well as domestic. The one thing I did like was a cheesy beef dip. The salsa dip was too spicy but we did request a mild dip which... More
