I had a burrito with sweet potato and beans. It was so delicious my fiance and I wanted to eat there again the next day. We still talk about how good the food and service were at this place. We'll definitely be back.

We always seem to have a meal at Salsa's when our family is visiting Asheville. Must be something about the great food and location. Plantain appetizer is great. Portions for most meals are quite large so plan to share.

Visited on a Saturday evening with friends and their children in tow. We were seated quickly and had an excellent server who assured me my hatred of cilantro would not ruin my experience. If they have them, try the peach margaritas -- excellent!

We go here every time we come to Asheville. It has never disappointed us. We try a different item each time. The flavors are very complex and so yummy. They also have the best ginger beer....they make it and it's light and refreshing.

Not a big fan of Fusion but this place was an absolute pleasure to visit. I ordered the lamb and with its mix of plantains and peaches in its aromatic Caribbean sauce did it for me. Will keep coming to this place.

I got the lamb that was the special of the day, so it was $4 cheaper and it was amazing. I would go back in a heartbeat. Good service, once they figured out I was outside :) the outside seating was a nice option. Go!

Salsa's is always popular and you may have to wait for a table, but it is well worth the wait! On a Wednesday night we were able to be seated immediately. The service is excellent-always friendly and helpful with suggestions on the menu. Mexican food...More
