Reviewed January 11, 2013

Nice lunch spot. Their hot sauce is awsome and they have a great lunch menu. I always get the chorizzo burrito!

Have been to Salena's a few times now, and every time I have a blast, food and drink is very good, staff is EXCELLENT, and overall experience has been a good time.

“Fun Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Great place in Village Gate to grab Mexican food. It's a great venue to grab a drink and the food is always constantly good.

“Skip Salena's - Disappointing”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Everything good about Monte Alban is what is missing from Salenas. It has the reputation but you will be disappointed with the food. Plus the acoustics of the place are horrific. Every sound reverberates off the walls and hits you in the eardrum. Really, find another place for your Mexican food fix. This place is uniquely average. There are a few other good places to eat in the same building complex that are much better than Salena's. It is not that the food is awful, it just isn't any good. You could make it better at home. Plus it is a bit pricey, especially if you want a beer or two with dinner.

“OK Mexican.”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Salena's has always been a staple for Mexican in Rochester but I've never gotten why it's so beloved. Mediocre food, bland rice and beans and overpriced for what it is. There are certainly now better options - like Paulas and other more authentic and tasty options.
