“Awesome Food- Awesome Staff Since 1942 WOW!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Friendly Staff, really wonderful home cooked food at reasonable prices. Passing through on a music and radio tour and could not believe how good the food was and how inexpensive. Attentive and friendly staff, giant margaritas. You can't go wrong here.

“The Chili Con Carne is Awesome!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

When I visit Fresno and have time for lunch I always stop at Sal's Mexican Restaurant for the Chili con Carne. It is large chunks of slow braised beef in a delicious red sauce. The beef is beyond fork tender and melts in the mouth. The spice on the sauce has just the right kick. Lastly, the spot on the plate where the red sauce and beans meet is pure magic. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Lunch service is fast as well. Sal's is a great place. Try the short-ribs too!

“Favorite Mexican Food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We ate here last night and were pleased as always. We eat here at least once per week and the food is awesome. Normally when the portions are large a place is compensating for poor quality. Not Sal's. the quality is what keeps us coming back.

The meals are very tasty and large. The service is friendly and quick. And the prices are very reasonable. The inside is cozy and comfortable the patio is cold, no decor, plastic chairs.

“The best Mexican food!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Sal's is the best Mexican food hands down. There is a wide variety of dishes from which to choose. I have never been disappointed. The staff is extremely friendly and if you are a frequent visitor, they usually remember what you order. Excellent all the way around.
