“Average Tex Mex”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I see there are two of these on TA. I think this is the original. The food here is average, but it is served hot. The prices are cheap and the service good. Because of that, the restaurant is often busy with families. No reservations. Just a waiting line. The location is an old fast food establishment, redone. The restaurant has been there for years now. It's not much on ambience, but it's good for a fairly quick, decent, inexpensive, mexican style meal.

“Consistently Delicious”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

El Salto is nothing short of yummy and never failing, always gut filling portions that leave your pockets happy! Texas sized drinks are not overpriced and the salsa n chips served before your meal is always fresh. I adore their enchiladas while hubby claps his hands like a baby when they bring out his flaming hot Fajita plate. He always asks, "how do they make it sizzle like that?" And before you know it, his mouth transforms into a Hoover suction and the food is sucked down, Olympic style...in seconds.
This is truly one of our tried and true places in Baltimore. El Salto es muy fantastico for category: Value Meal.

“Typical Mexican fare at a reasonable price.”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Nothing fancy, nothing offensive. Free chips & Tomato salsa. Guacamole is supermarket quality. Food is doused in melted cheese.
