Frequently visited the former location, and my first visit to the new location was great! Mahi Mahi was my choice, and the fish was prepared in a unique way, with a cheese topping and sauce. It was simply awesome! Black beans and rice were a nice complement to the fish.

South American food at it's finest, in Salisbury,NC!!! They moved to a new location downtown, excellent choice and the food and beverages are killer. There are so many great dishes that you just need to go and try this establishment, that's why I followed them from the old location. Go soon!

This restaurant is in a great location in downtown Salisbury. I love that there are so many beers on tap to try, but the food is what keeps me coming!

Good atmosphere, friendly staff, good cocktails and beer selection. We arrived around 9:30 so the tapas menu was all that was available at that time. Limited selection but quite tasty.

Grandson, as many 12-year-olds would be, is often reluctant to try anything new. But for all of us It was a very good dinner experience. We shared 3 plates and it was satisfactory in quantity for all of us. Skirt steak, Pollo Milanesia (chicken), and Vaca Frita de Lechon (pork) were all delicious.

Staff is friendly, food is awesome, cool atmosphere. I had difficulty stepping up through the entrance, but I am challenged with curbings, etc. Probably not noticed by the average person.

Mambo recently moved. It is no longer on Fulton Street. It is now downtown on East Fisher Street but still has the same excellent food.
