This is an attractive restaurant with a resemblance to New Orleans. Our waiter was very attentive. Other staff helped him when needed as we were a party of eleven. I had the chicken entree which was quite flavorful. My son enjoyed his tilapia. My only concern was that we had to sit at a small rectangular table for our large... More

This is a wonderful place with great food and drinks! The only drawback was the noise level. I didn't expect it to be quiet, but it was hard to have a conversation at all.

What a surprise. They moved to a bigger location and closer to the downtown area. Food is still excellent as is the service, and prices are still reasonable. I wish them the best in their new digs and I will send all the customers I can to try the delicious Cuban food.

Mambo has moved from Fulton Street to Fisher Street in Salisbury NC. The decor is amazing w. faux balconies, artwork, and angled ceiling fans that do not dry out the eyes of customers with contacts. The Cuban menu is expansive with appetizers, tapas, entrees, and sandwiches with true mouth-watering Cuban flavors. Be sure to try the Chicken Soup. It is... More

These folks do it right! You can't go wrong ordering anything on the menu. Have fun! Start with a mojito and save room for the tres leches cake.

Great food. The shrimp Tapas is a must as is the skirt steak, but just about everything is delicious . They also feature a well stocked bar with excellent bartenders and wait staff.

A group of us had lunch here and really enjoyed it. If you're looking for a break from typical Lexington style pork, try their Cuban Special. The pull pork was cooked to perfection. I also loved their yuca frita. Other had the ropa viejo was also a big hit. There's is plenty of parking and the restaurant can also handle... More

I've been to Mambo Grill about a half-dozen times. I'm going to keep coming back because the food is superb! I just moved to Salisbury from Tampa and am accustomed to good Cuban food. Today I had the pork asada. It was succulent with a nice balance between the garlic and the acid components. One complaint, however: service is frequently... More
