I stopped along the way for a lunch. I found that the staff was very attentive to my needs. The waiter got my meal promptly to me and I was able to get back on the road quickly. The lunch fajita is terrific. Plenty of food – too bad I didn't have any way of taking it with me…

Just old good food. Try the lava bowl meat combo. Step up from your normal fajitas. Sometimes the smaller less known places are best

This is a local Mexican Restaurant that we don't get to much. We had dinner here and it was good and their margaritas were great. The interior is okay and the chairs are very cute. The food seems a little more authentic Mexican compared to other restaurants we've been to. Definitely a nice, quiet place to enjoy the company of... More

Picked up my daughter and her roommate in BG and headed to the Toledo area for some shopping and a meal. We had a difficult time figuring out a restaurant to have dinner and came across El Salto but luck. There were 4 of us and we were able to be seated when we walked in. The restaurant was not...

A local favorite! Authentic menu, fast service. The margaritas are huge and they have a good beer selection.

Stopped by for an early lunch. We both ordered the enchilada lunch, hers w/ chicken, mine w/ beef. Both were excellent! Service was very good - both attentive and friendly, although there many patrons that early.

We have been going here for years and love it so much. The people who work there are so friendly, and the prices are right! Favorites include the shrimp chipotle which is tender and slightly smoky and spicy. My family always orders the Alambre steak dinner which they love. It comes with sautéed peppers and onions and a nice Mexican... More
