I had the chicken mole enchiladas - very good mole sauce. Also had a margarita which tasted they poured the mixer out of a bottle - yuck - I'd go with a beer next time. The server seemed very disinterested and very slow.

We visited for lunch. Husband had the 'mixed' plate and ate every bite of the shrimp, fish and veggie tacos. I ordered the special of the day, chicken tostadas. One of the tostada ingredients was pineapple guacamole - so delicious! Everything was very fresh, and...the casual outdoor seating was nice. Friendly service. Definitely worth a visit.More

This is one of my favorite places in Salem. The food is delicious and the establishment is fun and clean. I love their outdoor seating. The service is great. Every employee is warm and personable. I haven’t had anything on their menu that wasn’t top...notch. I recommend their costillas, fish tacos, or a salad and add prawns when you want something light. They brew their own delicious beer and have great margaritas. It is in an industrial area so it makes it one of Salem’s hidden gems!More

Don’t believe the gluten free markers on the menu. Everything except tacos is subject to cross contamination. It’s “gluten lite” only, and this celiac will still be hungry after dinner.

Doesn’t get much better than that. Oh, add comfortable outdoor seating and friendly service. That’s a winning combination all around. Be sure to get the chips and salsa – great black beans, interestingly unique guacamole.

Delicious food with many options and safe social distancing. Nice outside seating. Highly recommend nachos, tacos and taquitos.

I am not trying to be trite in the title. This place really is hidden. I was picking up food for us and the in-laws. It was so clean and outside tables well spaced we considered eating in. The menu was adventurous. We had to...google a few of the items to know what they were. The effort was worth it. The food was excellent. Flavors that blended well and held their own. We wanted the IPA, but they were out. The beer we ended up with was good, but paled when matched with the food.More

Well prepared Mexican dishes and decent enough brews. Its a little out of the way in an office park in West Salem, but has nice outdoor seating area. My only gripe is that there is limited vegetarian or vegan dishes on the menu (hence only...a four star review). Still with the help great house made hot sauces, I was able to turn the handful of vegan side options into a full meal.More

When I visit Salem my daughter always comes up with new brew pub recommendations. After trying Xichas I would say it will be a repeat outing. The beer selections were excellent, the food delicious and service good. The only detraction was it’s seating capacity, but...that’s to be expected when just starting out. I’m sure that will be corrected with its growing popularity. Anyway, they accommodated us, a family of six, by asking a couple at a larger table to move to a smaller one. They graciously helped out. I really could find no fault with this new place. Absolutely give it a try. Many unique variations on a Mexican theme.More

Had a flight of 5 beers-there's some amazingly complex brews for such a young brewery! However, come time to pay (I went for a work thing w/ like 10 of us), they advised they will not split the bill for just my order (1 drink)....They offered to 'split it evenly, or down the middle.' She even showed my where it says that on the menu. I explained that I arrived well after my group, and ordered at the bar, and wasn't advised of this absurd policy. It's 2020, computing technology has come a long way since the days of order pads. They have a POS system, so this appears to be a choice they are making. I literally was unable to pay for mine, so I (embarrassingly) had to ask a peer to pick up my tab so I could leave. There's an alternate micro brew blocks away, so I cannot fathom how this policy exists in a customer centric business. I hope they change it, as I will not be back with a group until they do.More
