Visited here for Supper and found the food exceptionally good for a relatively unknown restaurant in neighborhood location. Drinks were great, and the food was good across the board, rice, beans, and entrees. Prices were very modest for the portions given and quality of food. Will return !

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It's located in a strip mall with a single sign so you have to watch for it. Once inside, though, it's quite large and extremely busy on a Friday night. Get there early to avoid the lines! Friday Happy Hour margaritas, until 6:00 pm, for $3. Food is good, plentiful and comes quickly. Fajitas... More

I wandered into Salsa Tex Mex with my husband after viewing the Christmas displays at Deerfield. Based on the positive reviews, I had high hopes and was not disappointed. The margaritas were moderately strong and considerably cheap for what you get. Their fajitas were perfectly seasoned and piping hot. My husband had the seafood enchiladas, which took up his entire...

Returning weekly may seem over the top, but i have friends who frequent Salsa several times a week. Everything is fresh, staff is so friendly and its just fun to be there. My favorites are the #2 Lunch, Carne Asada and Salmon Salad #25 i think... Try the Serano Sauce, it comes by personal request and dip in with a... More

This has become our go to place for happy hour! Many people told me they loved their margaritas, but not really being a margarita person, I usually ordered something else. Then , someone I was with convinced me to have one. They are very good, and they are only $3! You would expect a $3 margarita to be weak and... More

The Husband and I went out for dinner. He had a chicken dish which had chicken breast on a huge bed of veggies and rice. I had chicken and spinach quesadillas. Yum! Food was great. Also had a delicious strawberry mojito. The restaurant is in a strip mall, and the tables are fairly close together, but it was a nice... More

...It usually starts with a sip of frozen margarita and some black bean / salsa. Several visits have always been muy bueno. Tacos al carbon & pollo de al casa are a steady diet for us. Can get cozy when it's busy.

Did I just say "favs"? Yep, sure did. Must've picked that up from the kids. Anyway, we love this place. Especially since they enlarged the dining area and the waits are shorter. The black bean dip is great. I almost always order the Mario's combo (Three different enchiladas). Service is good. The house margaritas are tasty and a bargain, especially... More

We are fortunate to have Salsa near our neighborhood because we would burn a lot of gas getting there if it wasn't. It is our staple for Tex Mex. The food is great and very high quality. The margarita's are among the best in DFW. They are flavored perfectly. The staff there is like family. We enjoy being there.
