We pulled into Kingsburg about 8 pm after driving for several hours. We were tire and hungary and after checking into the Fairfield Inn we asked about restaurants in the area. The desk clerk recommended Salazar's which she said was within walking distance. After starting to walk we decided it was more like a driving distance, so my husband went back and got the car. This place is located in the same area as the K-Mart but on the farthest side of that area from the motel (which was a "backyard neighbor"). The place seemed to be a local favorite. This is a smallish town and we were concerned about how late restaurants would be open. We arrived at Salazar's about 8:30. They were only open until 9, but said we were fine, to come on in, no problem. Since it was late I ordered the taco salad which was described as choice of meat, beans, tomatoes, and guacamole on a bed of lettuce in a taco shell bowl for $9.79 The server suggested the shredded beef. I asked for no guacamole and no raw onion garnish. My husband ordered enchiladas in green chili which the server recommended for $11.99. The complimentary corn chips were crisp and hot and the salsa was mild and tasty. We were hungary and ate more of them than we should have. When the meal came it was a lot of food. My husband said his was good. My salad was a little disappointing in that it was a whole lot of shredded beef and beans in the bottom of the taco shell bowl with a little lettuce and tomatoes on top. I had wanted it the other way around. By the time we were served they were putting the chairs on top of the tables and cleaning up for the night. This probably would have been a better selection at 6 pm than at almost 9 pm. The food sat heavy on our stomachs. We realized afterwards that somewhere in Kingsburg there is a Denny's which would have been open all night and served lighter food. That night it would have been a better choice.
