“We like to sit outside because the decor inside the restaurant is somewhat lacking but the great food and service make up for the drab decor.”
“This place is the BEST, I don't even mind dining or having a drink alone here, I feel right at home.”
“the food is not that good, and you'll just leave with a bad taste in your mouth (from the food) and the service!”
“there wasn't much on the menu for vegetarians, so my co-worker and i split the mama's nachos as an appetizer, which were mediocre.”
“do have to say that the margaritas were really good, but that's about the only thing this place has got going for it.”
“will definitely go back, and recommend this restaurant if you're looking for an unpretentious environment without sacrificing great taste.”
“live in the neighborhood and eat at this unpretentious Mexican restaurant regularly because the food is very good, prices are reasonable, the service is friendly and fast, and the atmosphere is cozy and casual.”
“its a decent value you get your choice from a list of about seven items (tacos, enchiladas, as well as other dishes i cant pronounce), and for an extra $3, you can add an appetizer as well.”
NOT good. The interior of this place is awful and the food is even worse.
Not Recomended!. I really don't understand why this place is still open and much less the good reviews. To start with this Mexican was corrected twice on how to pronounce Chile Relleno. The waiter actually pronounced the "ll" as the l in lousy service. When the food did come the tamales were cold hard and oddly colored. I have never seen tamales like those anywhere in Mexico. The quesadillas(ll as the y in yucky cheese) were made with-get this-with American singles cheese. Really?! When food was returned barely touched no inquiry or compensations were offered. To be fair I have tried this place twice and know that the only thing holding this place up are the walls.
Great Food+ Great Drinks+Great Times=Perfection. I couldn’t possibly count how many great places I’ve eaten at in NYC, Westchester and the surrounding areas and this place is number one on my list! This place is the BEST, I don’t even mind dining or having a drink alone here, I feel right at home. The food is fresh and delicious, the drinks are phenomenal and the staff is outstanding! The atmosphere here is joyous and that is thanks to the wonderful staff. Salsa y Salsa has become the choice spot for my friends and me to meet up, have drinks, food and relax and have a good time. We love the people here, enjoy the company of fellow patrons and the ambiance that this all creates. This is certainly a happy place to be and I highly recommend it!
Mucho Margaritas & Mexican Food.
We love popping into this no frills Mexcian restaurant for a quick delicious bite to eat. All of their food is freshly prepared, spicy and simply satisfying.
My boyfriend insists that they have the best mojitos, while I prefer their amazing margaritas. We like to sit outside because the decor inside the restaurant is somewhat lacking but the great food and service make up for the drab decor.
Whenever we are eating here, we see people we know walk by and last time we were there, people kept joining us. The staff was really accommodating by bringing us more chairs and adding a table onto ours. It was great fun!
Best mojitos around!. The food here is pretty good - good portions and tasty, tasty, tasty. I was there last night w friends and we came specifically for the mojitos - they are the best in the city! A little pricey, but super-duper good! And we had Juan as our server - he was very nice and did not rush us out the door so others could be seated. That in itself is crucial when I decide to return to a place - I'm paying to be there - so don't rush! Salsa y Salsa is a cute little joint that is unpretentious and worth a trip.
I have ate there 4 times and each time the food was great! Service is relaxed but NOT slow. The food is more of a Mexican fusion than out right Mexican. They take some typical Mexican dishes and change them around. I did have one that I was not crazy about but I failed to notice the sauce was mole which I am not a fan of either. I will say one negative thing, there salsa's are not that great. The chips are yummy but the salsa's all have a strange taste to them.
The prices are good as well as the drinks.
NOTE- This is NOT a place to go to if your in a rush or have a large group of people.
Wind down with good friends, good food and great margaritas!. I'm shocked at the poor reviews for this place! I've been 3 times and plan to go back, for my birthday, this week! I've been a party of 2 and up to a party of 5 and have enjoyed myself each time! I seem to go for a late lunch or early dinner. It's low key, the atmosphere is kind of tacky, but bright and cheerful! I would agree that this is not the place to come if you're in a hurry. But, don't we need to slow down from time to time? The staff is polite, but not on fire to get the job done. With that said, I've never felt that I've waited too long for anything. The margaritas are some of the best I've had. As far as the food goes, I haven't had anything but the chile relleno yet, because it is so delicious!!! My friends have all enjoyed their food as well... chicken enchilladas, fajitas, some kind of sandwhich, etc. I've been in the industry for nearly 20 years, so I'm usually the one who's annoyed at bad service and food. I silently cheer to think that the owner actually throws people out of his restaurant! (No offense to the ones who were kicked to the curb.) I have wanted to do the same thing myself many times. In this city, we're so used to getting everything and anything we want, I think it's easy to lose sight of reality at times. I say, recognize that you're in a Mexican Restaraunt, you know, the place where they take naps? Relax, have a drink, go with the flow and expect to have a good time and maybe you just will.
Who said it wasn't good?.
I was taken here by a friend, and if there is anyone that knows about Mexican food, it's me. I was very satisfied by the food and drinks. The place is nothing fancy, but the food and margaritas were great.!!!
I had an avocado salad with shrimp to die for!!! try it!!
I also had a "Chile Relleno", and even thought it was not filled with the traditional fillings, it was still excellent in taste.
If you plan for a day in the city, and want a relaxed spot where you can sit, eat something tasty and chat your tongue away...go here... I loved it and will be going back for my B-day before hitting the club...lol
So, anyways, I think this was a great place and would definitely recommend anyone to go there...just remember, this is not a fancy place...
food CHECK CHECK CHECK!!!
One of the best Mexican meals I've ever had!
Go anywhere else....i. This is a small storefront restaurant on 7th avenue. It is decorated with photos of purple hibiscuses stuck to the walls- (strange for a mexican restaurant). The service is not good! it ruined the entire experience. Upon arrival we were seated and waited 15 minutes for anyone to come and bring a menu. When they did they did said ''sorry'' and left..... We waited and waited for everything... The 3 different waiters that came to the table were NOT FRIENDLY. The table was covered in dishes and the waiters were chatting and no one came to ask anythingever! When someone managed to flag down anyone to order an new drink they just brought a new one and plunked it down...leaving the old one. After we ate and they finally cleared the plates after begging them to clear the table..., they never came back, ever. we had to ask for a check, they never asked if we wanted anything else, if we enjoyed ourselves...anything. We paid and left....no one said good bye. thank younothing.
