Great food and service. The people were friendly and our glasses were always full. We never had to ask for chips and salsa, and the food tasted great. The only problem (and the restaurant let us know up front) is that they cannot find people...willing to work and they were short-staffed. Dinner took a loooooong time. Still, though, we would gladly return. A great choice if you are looking for Mexican food in Fresno.More

Excellent meal and service. My family of 6 stopped to eat and sat outside on their patio deck with cool misters for lunch. Even with temps near 100, it was comfortable. From the time we were greeted by the hostess till the time we left,...every interaction was an outstanding example of friendly, professional customer service. Multiple staff checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Our server, Daniel, was personable and quick. Aaron, one of the owners, came out to check on us and chatted to make sure we had a good experience. The restaurant and bathrooms were very clean and welcoming. The food was delicious, and you can tell it is locally sourced and fresh. The portions are generous and perfectly seasoned. My only regret is that I could only finish about half of my amazing food! I wish we weren’t just visitors to the area so we could go back!More

Sal’s seems like the real deal. Love the story behind the place and the staff was great. I had the Sal Combo plate and love every bite. The taco and Releno was awesome.

I had been to one other Sal's Mexican Food Restaurant here in Fresno and have had their party platters at parties I've attended (party platters I do recommend) and considering this location was fairly new, I thought it should be really good and honestly I...wasn't that impressed. It was about as average as a few other Mexican food restaurants around. If you want really authentic Mexican food that feels like the Mexican grandma made it in the kitchen right there, you need to go to the east side or tower district Cucas Mexican restaurant. This Sals was like just another Mexican meal, nothing really outstanding and made me feel kinda like just more and more mexican restaurants......More

We had our family Christmas dinner here and it was not very good. The staff was great and very friendly. Although the food wasn’t good at all. There was 14 of us and we all agree the flavor of the food was lacking flavor. If...you enjoy Sal’s as much as my family does visit the Sal’s in Selma it’s much better. The only positive thing I will say about the food is that my stepson ordered the Steve burger and he said it was delicious. Yes I know that’s strange due to Sal’s being a Mexican restaurant but hey I guess it happens.More

After pigging out on the delicious chips and salsa I should known to order light! My two carne asada tacos were huge. They came with fresh lemon but I asked for lime it was immediately brought to me. The rice was some of the best...I've had. I wish I could have eaten more or had a place to take the leftovers. Everything on the menu looked good so definitely worth a trip back next time in town! Thanks James for great service.More

We enjoyed our meal at Sal's. It was close to our hotel and the food and service were good. It was nice to be able to eat at a local place rather than a chain.
