Lots of locals eat here, with the parking lot typically busy. Quite a variety of great Mexican food, a great salsa bar, free chips, nice selection of drinks including a variety of beers. Friendly, quick service and clean bathrooms. What's not to like? There are 4-5 other Mexican restaurants in town, and they're all good so the visitor can hardly lose and locals each have their favorite. Salsa Brava is ours. Good vegetarian options, too.

As a family, we eat at Salsa Brava every opportunity we get. My wife loves the spinach enchiladas and has them add chicken and portabella mushrooms. I crave the Yucatan carnitas and get my fill every time we go. Kids order off the kid friendly menu, usually the mini burgers. Portions are huge and I usually take home the leftovers for lunch the next day. Excellent value for the money.

Just nothing special. Food is adequate but certainly nothing more than that. Adequate parking. Service is ok but not great. Since Flagstaff has several excellent Mexican restaurants, I'm not sure why you would want to go here.

Walked in and observed tables open, but wa advised it would be 25-30 minute wait. They had on the bilboard happy hour specials, but when we wanted drinks they stated it was for the bar only!
Ordered the carne avada, it was fair. Serivce was not friendly.

We stopped in tonight because we had heard on Diners drive-ins and dives With Guy Fieri.... That this place is a do not miss when you're in the area!!
And let me just say, " he is right! "
They have a salsa bar which contains seven of the finest salsas.
We ordered the evening special which was called, "Tacos AL Pastor"
Spicy but yummy. "Lobster and shrimp enchiladas." Double Yum!!
And last but definitely lot least...
The three-time award-winning
"Carnitas". Yummy also!!!
