This is a truly local and family run place with the MOST colorful and idiosyncratic of decorative schemes. And the food is reasonable, generous, and most tasty. We ate there last evening with an order of chicken tacos which got strong positive reviews from my companion and my order of the Tostada Salad with an amazing portion of pork. The... More

There is a self serve salsa bar with a good selection of salsas. The food and the salsa was very good. Friendly Staff. Everyone in our group enjoyed the meals. They do serve French fires. Someone in our group ordered hamburger and fries. I have never seen that happen before in a Mexican Restaurant.

I used to go to Sal's all the time back in the late '80s. I moved away for awhile and forgot all about them. Last weekend my wife suggested a little place that she had been to a year or two ago. Lo and behold it was Sal's! It was almost like a family reunion. Happy to meet Sal's tacos... More

They serve the best Mexican food in Sacramento. Its served the old time way I LOVE. (greasy and sloppy). Lots of choices of combinations, and your choice of lots of beers. Seating is inside or outside.

My daughter found Sal's on a search on her phone. Had a late lunch there. Marvelous. Went back for breakfast. Great huevos rancheros. Had lunch there another day. Would fly back to Sacramento just to eat at Sal's.

I drove by this place for years before I gave it a try. Now I am there at least once every couple weeks. This is not only the best Mexican food in town, but it is the best food in this town.
