I love Senor Salsa! Cheap, hearty, delicious. My favorite quick Mexican place probably anywhere. Like LOVE this place- makes Chipotle and Qdoba look like garbage. Salsa bar is great too! Parking lot sucks though so beware.

The food at Senor Salsa is good and fresh. Their salsa bar is the best around. The parking lot is small and can be difficult when the restaurant is busy.

Only con is the parking...very hard to park unless you park in Doughnut Inn next to La Salsa. Lots of sauces to load up on and food cooked to order. Moves quickly. Some seating inside. As their name states...FRESH Mexican Grill

A friend suggested meeting there for a quick bite and boy was I surprised. Ordered the tamale platter and was surprised how reasonable as well as the portion was including chips on the side. This was a great " find" and looking forward to going back.

This is a fantastic fast-food style mexican restaurant. MUCH better than Chipolte and Qdoba. My favorites are the fajita quesadilla with shrimp and the wild mushroom quesadilla, so yummy! The salsa and topping bar has so many choices as well and all of them are delicious. Love that they have a bowl of cilantro so you can add as much... More

We stopped in here for a quick dinner. The meal size was plentiful. I enjoyed a chicken chili salad. The salsa bar is quite impressive in size. Just not sure that I like that it's wide open with people coughing or sneezing on it. The food was prepared quickly. This joint seems to be pretty popular with Fairfield peeps!

We stop in ovcassionally when we are looking to grab a quick bite. Quick, relatively inexpensive Mexican fare made from fresh ingredients. The restaurant is popular with the locals and college kids and pretty busy most of the time. Most dishes are good, nothing exceptional. I usually order the chicken chile lime salad, a shrimp classic quesadilla or a California... More

I like lots of Mexican food...but I love La Salsa's Shrimp Cancun. For me La Salsa is located only a few blocks from my house...a big plus.
