This place is great. The food is great, I recommend the Carnitas Zacatecas. O M G!!! I love their bean dip too. 2 bars in one restaurant. VERY limited parking. I think the longest we waited was 2 hours and the shortest wait was non peak hours and about 15 minutes (before 3pm on a weekday).

Your are immediately served warm bean sauce & chips, and a free salsa bar. The staff is very sweet and accomodating. The food is flavorful and... More

The food here is amazing! The drinks are cheap, but very tasty and get you right! It does get really crowded, but it is definitely worth the wait. The service is quick, but it all depends on the time you get there. Parking is hectic, as their lot is small. Street parking in the area is usually not too bad.

Love the steak tacos. Corn tortilla was thin and crispy. The other three people with me had the burritos, enchiladas and tacos. We all loved the food. It came out quickly and hot. I personally thought the beans were too hot, but the others with me liked them. The rice was very good and I would go back just for... More

Great quality, quantity, and vegetarian options, this place is affordable and amazingly delicious. The staff is very attentive and friendly, overall a 5 star for sure, BUT crazzzzzy long wait times, always. Went on a Friday evening and couldn't get in, 2 hour wait, then again a Friday at 3 pm and managed to get in. You can get in... More

This has become my go to place for reasonably priced Mexican food. It's pretty large and always crowded but worth it. I've pretty much stuck to the basics: tacos, enchilada's etc. and they're all really good. My wife and son love their fajita's. Parking is HORRIBLE! I either park on the street or in the Home Depot lot. Be prepared... More

I know its saying a lot, but this was the best Mexican food ever. My customer took me there, he said it was great, he said the food was great, he said save room for the flan. The food was incredible. I didn't save room for the flan, but I ordered the flan anyway. I'm not saying I'm a big... More

I think we misunderstood - I think she was trying to say "I don't miss it a bit." A major disappointment. This restaurant is in an industrial commercial district which is fine. It's quite large and the interior other than being very loud is clean and attractive. So if all you want is clean stay. But if your mouth is... More

Salsa and beer is one of the best places to eat in the San Fernando Valley, the staff is very friendly, prices are very reasonable, their margaritas are the best, a bit of a wait normally between half an hour or 45 minutes, but worth the wait, parking on the back you also have to wait but they have attendants...
