Awesome Food & Lively Scene
The food was awesome - we had the salmon tostadas, the tacos, chips & salsa, and side salads. It all had delicious flavor. The service is simple & fast (order at the bar) and the staff is super friendly. We sat on the covered patio and had a lot of fun. We'd definitely go back!
Dive restaurant good food but lousy service
I had the chicken mole enchiladas - very good mole sauce. Also had a margarita which tasted they poured the mixer out of a bottle - yuck - I'd go with a beer next time. The server seemed very disinterested and very slow.
Tasty tacos and tostadas
We visited for lunch. Husband had the 'mixed' plate and ate every bite of the shrimp, fish and veggie tacos. I ordered the special of the day, chicken tostadas. One of the tostada ingredients was pineapple guacamole - so delicious! Everything was very fresh, and the casual outdoor seating was nice. Friendly service. Definitely worth a visit.
My Favorite Place in Salem
This is one of my favorite places in Salem. The food is delicious and the establishment is fun and clean. I love their outdoor seating. The service is great. Every employee is warm and personable. I haven’t had anything on their menu that wasn’t top notch. I recommend their costillas, fish tacos, or a salad and add prawns when you want something light. They brew their own delicious beer and have great margaritas. It is in an industrial area so it makes it one of Salem’s hidden gems!
Don’t believe the gluten free markers on the menu. Everything except tacos is subject to cross contamination. It’s “gluten lite” only, and this celiac will still be hungry after dinner.
