Such a fun place to stop after any kind of day in Salem....
This is our second visit to this fun restaurant! We love the staff here-so friendly and helpful! I enjoyed a delicious raspberry margarita with my two tacos. My partner had a couple of his favorite beers and he also had tacos but he also tried the potatoes (papitas) and I went for the homemade corn chips-delicious! Next time I will have the paella again-too good to wait too long!
Brew Pub With Satisfying Cuban Vibe
Authentically delicious Cuban food with great local beer. Order anything and you'll be happy. Order the churros and you'll be ecstatic. If you're a local great candidate for your go to pub.
A great spot in Salem for food and brew
I love this place. Any time I am passing by Salem I try and stop for lunch. The food and beer are both really good. The staff is friendly. The food comes in a timely manner. The paella is as good as any I have had in this country.
The vegetable taco had great flavor. The salad had a ton of lettuce but the pumpkin seeds and toppings added good flavor. The raspberry margarita was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful. The queso came with pretzels for dipping and we asked for chips which were also good.
great beer and food to go with it
We first heard about this brewery from Tacovore in Corvallis, which serves Xicha's excellent lager. At Xicha we tried and enjoyed their pilsner and malbok. We anxiously await being able to buy these, and some of the others, in a local store! The nachos were a full meal, and the tacos were perfectly seasoned, both served hot in a cast iron skillet. They have an interesting variety of beer and menu items reflecting a broad geographical background. Our only caveat for those who use reading glasses is - take them. The font on the menus is about 6 pt, and the beer menu is printed on dark paper. It was pretty busy when we were there on a Sunday mid-afternoon, so it probably gets really busy at regular meal times, deservedly so.
