We live in Oregon now and really miss Sal's. We were just there recently to visit and it is still so good. The tacos are stuffed with meat and cheese and the fancy burritos is so good. I wish we had a Sal's in Oregon!!!

Had the good fortune to eat dinner at Sal's in Selma. Best Mexican food I can remember eating in a long time. Although Rosa Linda's Mexican Restaurant also in Selma tastes great too. Prices are very reasonable. Efficient, friendly waitstaff. Give it a try you cannot go wrong.

This is the original Sals, that Bobby Salazzars broke out from. This is real Mexican food like your grandma would make, the Fancey Burrito, the tamales are fantastic, great selection. The waiters and waitress are fantastic. Small place does get crowed at lunch but way worth the wait. They also have other locations in Madera, Fresno. Also have catering for... More

We both had a combination lunch and not only are the servings large, but it was delicious. The restaurant was almost full but our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. The only complaint I have are the chips they serve before the meal arrives. I remember several years ago going to Sal's in Clovis a couple times a month &... More

It was covered....err doused in a most amazing red sauce with melted cheese on top! Their portions are ginormous! Most of the diners around me were taking the leftovers home! This restaurant is...

Odd location, but would definitely come back for the food. Waitstaff could have been more attentive took forever even though not too busy

The service was good. The food was great. The price was reasonable. The location was less than desirable but so be it. We will be back.

This place is slap dab in the middle of a housing area. It was not easy to find after dark. The salsa tasted fresh with lightly chopped cilantro. Refreshing. We both had combination plates and enjoyed the refried beans that had whole beans as well as mashed. The red rice was moist. Both of us had the chili rellano and... More

I lived in the Fresno area during my teen years, and in Fresno during my early 20s. As you can imagine, it was not difficult to find Mexican restaurants in the area, but our favorite was always Sal's, in Selma. It was neither the Tex-Mex that was typical in the area (or in just about any other area, as far... More
