We have dined at Hacienda Real several times now, and without exception the food and service have been superb. Each dish tastes fresh, served by attentive, professional staff members that seem to care about the food, and the customers, they serve.
We love Muchas Gracias .for a fast meal, but for a little more formal, sit down dinner or lunch, it would be difficult to top this restaurant.
It's definitely a favorite.

We order take out every time we visit Salem. Wonderful service, fantastic food. Never disappoints. The restaurant itself is not suitable for large groups.

We arrived at our hotel right before dinner and the front desk suggested that we try La Hacienda Real for dinner. We were very surprised at how good the food was. The chips and salsa at the beginning of the meal were very fresh and we got to watch the ladies make fresh tortillas while we waited to be seated. The menu had a very large selection with two pages of seafood dishes alone. I grew up in Arizona and have pretty high standards for Mexican food and I'd definitely go back for dinner again.

I do enjoy their food but it is a bit on the bland side (for the "Gringos" I guess,) but I always order the hot sauce extra hot so I can pour it over everything. The service has improved recently - no more young women milling around out front and gossiping - even get smiles from the servers now. I like the conventional items, such as enchiladas, tacos and rellenos and haven't ventured into the rest of a large menu. Probably would enjoy it as well.
