For my lunch break, I drove across town for an order to go. I ordered the flauta dinner which is advertised to come with sour cream and guacamole. After I picked it up and drove back, I saw that there was no sour cream or...guacamole included in the dinner or on the side. So I got rice, beans, and the plain flautas, which were dry without the sour cream and guacamole. I called to complain. I was told I could drive back to get the sour cream and guacamole. My lunch break was over and it was too far. I have uploaded a photo of the dinner with the bare flautas. Disappointed.More

Restaurant is very busy and cozy. Food is always great. Service varies, sometimes a bit slow. Other times quite good.

Enjoyed a 200 people receptions, good food and excellent service, available is a TV for video displays and we enjoyed a photo slideshow from a computer hookup. 5 Stars!

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we stopped by this place while on an RV trip visiting from Las Vegas. The decor was comfortable and authentic, staff attentive, and food wonderful. I has Sal's Combo: chicken taco, beef enchilada, and chili relleno. All three were excellent. My...wife had a 2 combo: beef burrito, which she enjoyed but wished had more varied ingredients, and enchilada. The rice and beans were great, the beans a combo of refried and whole pintos.More

Love Sal’s! We were introduced by our friends whose Dad pastors a local church. Have been coming ever since. The salsa is fantastic, I always enjoy the Chile Colorado, and this trip my son went with the Chile Verde chicken enchiladas and as he put...it, well he didn’t say a word until he was done, and then he said they were the best! Stop and try some great food.More

I first discovered Sal's restaurant at the original location in Selma (even before they built their current location, it was actually an old house!). After just one meal there, it was the best Mexican food I had ever had!!! I was so happy when Madera...got a Sal's years ago, and happy to say the taste of the food reminded me of the original restaurant. Everything on the menu is great! But my favorite is the Fancy Burrito, I have never had a better burrito. We often order take home and it is always ready on time.More
