Since we were out west, we had to try real western food. Salsa Brava was highly recommended, and we now know why. The service was great, the food was excellent, and the tortilla chips were the best we ever had.

This is a very popular spot in Flagstaff. We hit the Wednesday reduced price guac and margarita. Their speciality is a pulled pork which can be served in numerous ways and we chose the taco. Server was terrific and the service was fast.

We picked this place to eat because Guy Fiery ate here and gave it thumbs up! Wow!! Absolutely the best food! We had the navajo tacos and they were CANYON size! So much food we could have shared amongst all 3 of us! We also ordered the table side guac too... DELISH! And last but not least we had the... More

Really authentic Mexican restaurant with plenty of choices. I like how you can fix your own salsa (hot to mild, green or red). Love the combos and the fajitas. Better go early especially on weekends as the restaurant is always crowded.

The portabella fajita is awesome! Very flavorful and not any under cooked carrots or broccoli, like other places like to throw in. Only onion, peppers, and mushrooms, guac and sour cream. I did miss the cheese! Decent rice and beans as well. I did not especially care for the salsa bar; too hot and the mild wasn't really like a... More

On recommendation of our Grand Canyon tour guide we went to Salsa Brava East this evening for dinner after spending a day at Grand Canyon National Park. The food was really good. I had a chile relleno combination plate and my wife had the sour cream chicken. We both enjoyed our dinners and the service. We got there about 5:30... More

I've been to lots of Mexican food places, and this is the first one I've seen that has fry bread. YUM! I had the fry bread and beans, and when I told the waiter I needed the vegan version, he gave me the grilled veggies instead of meat, and also substituted them for the rice, which he said was made...

Go for the smoky salsa - outstanding! I had the carne asada Navajo taco and it was huge and very well done! The Blanco Chimi is great too! Service a bit slow is my only complaint...

Great Mexican food off Route 66. Salsa bar not for wimps, be prepared for savory spice that will stay with you for a bit. Their grilled veggies are a great option for those not wanting the traditional Rice and beans which they also have. Smoked chicken mole and regular enchiladas also a house favorite. Love the atmosphere and staff is... More
