I ate here after it received glowing reviews from hotel staff where I was staying. I cannot imagine why. The food was the level of a burger bar not a quality restaurant. The meal came to $9 so I got what I paid for, but it was definitely not a high quality authentic Mexican restaurant. Service was excellent and the price of the meal was good.

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.

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!

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.
