(map) Salsa’s is so new that they offer a semi-apology for any stumbles during their “soft opening,” but our experience was all good. From the opening tart, frosty house rita and trio of house-made salsas to the freshly made tamales, Salsa’s seems like a welcome Tex-Mex addition to the neighborhood. Below, a tempting array of salsas accompany tostada chips made on site.
The space has been remodeled with built-in booths, a colorful tiled mural and low wall dividing the restaurant from the bar. Below, well-seasoned fajita tacos served in tortillas made in-house. Choice of beans includes frijoles, charros or black beans. You can also get a variety of other tacos (fish, barbacoa) and enchiladas.
Salsa’s offers an assortment of freshly made tamales, like green-chile cheese, chicken mole and tomatillo chicken. They are served as a plate, but you can also order one or two on the side.
Shrimp nachos were loaded not with those teeny little food-service shrimp, but with juicy chunks of bigger shrimp, spicy guacamole and lots of cheese. Below, the low wall dividing the restaurant and screening tables. There’s a well-appointed patio which should be a nice option once the weather cools off.
