If you're flexible with your time and can enjoy a meal you waited too long for with an empty soft drink, this is a great bet. I recommend the The Amigos Enchiladas, though I've ha...


I've been really uncomfortable with some of the comments made by a particular waiter the last couple of times I went. And the food was all messed up too. Guess it won't be my favo...

Decent Mexican Crusine Close to Downtown 8/24/2005

If you are looking for a place for a group from work to go for lunch and are sick and tired of the chains (Chevy's, Chipolte, Baja Sol, etc) you might want to check out Salsa a la Salsa at the very beginning of Eat Street next to Market BBQ. With a bar you can get marguirettas and wine and there is plenty of room for large parties of people assembling for office party lunches. The major claim my office mates made about Salsa a la Salsa was that it was Mexcian owned and run and thus more "authentic" that Tex Mex and the gringo buritto bandit bunch. And it's probably true but there are a variety of authentic Mexican-style eateries these days from southern coastal seafood grills to a corn based rural tortillas and full red sauces. This cruisine follows more closely the second, although, here in the US lines if distinction become blurred. As I like my food hot and full of spicy kick I found their green and red salsa's lacking any punch. Served with chips on the table as you come in, the red tomato salsa was really nothing more than diced tomatoes and onions. When we requested a dipping salsa for out chips, they augmented our options by adding a creamy pink coction to the table that had a bit bigger flavor but certainly not HOT. I had grilled fajitas ($11.99) and they were good but not anything that would make you roll your R's and from the plate of add-ons they forgot the guacamole which I sadly missed. Usually, when I order fajitas, they serve them with warm flour or wheat tortillas but these were small round white corn and, again, that is the style and regional difference coming into play. The Arnie Palmer (ice tea and lemonade mix) was delicious and the people I sat next to have fluittas and they said they were good but not anything like the best they've ever had. The atmosphere was nice and roomy inside a dining room of of paintings fomr the Trujillo Gallery and a very pleasant surrounding in contrast to Taco Morellos further up the street. We didn't try too much outisde standard faire fo lunch. The next time it might be a bit more adventurous to try their walleye tacos, Devil Mary Chicken Wings, and pupusas--cheese-stuffed masa pancakes. more
