We don't get here enough. It's close to our house. The food is great and the staff are nice. WE had the nacho chips which are brought to everyone and I ordered something different, "El Cazuelon", which is three kinds of meat: chicken, steak, and chorizo with rice, and frijolies. I also had a Negra Modello. My wife had just... More

The most recent review was about a girl "playing" with her foot, I was there and the girl simply tied her shoe... It's really embarrassing for the last person to lie about what happened. I love the food! Service is great! The place is clean! I highly recommend El Salto! Both locations are great!

The next thing I saw was that same waitress giving someone a to-go container and her finger were touching the inside of it.....She didn't... More

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…

I want to jump up and shout about this small Mexican restaurant in Maumee Ohio (in where Kanbaatar?). Relatively close to and South of the I-80 / I-90 Ohio Turnpike the first thing that grabbed my wife and myself was a GIANT basket of corn chips with a large jar of Salsa and a bottle of more Salsa on the...

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...
