I eat here regularly when in town as they have an outdoor private patio with a fountain that most days no matter what the weather is comfortable and I bring my quiet well trained mini schnauzer companion with me in her stroller. Service is good, food is good.

Even though there are Mexican restaurants much closer to my home my family and I like Sal's. The service is usually attentive and the food is quite good. The beer is overpriced, but that's a different story. I think Sal's has the best chicken soup anywhere. I mean, the spices, the meat, everything together is just amazing. That's the main... More

Saturday evening at Sal's no wait. Chip and Salsa was fresh good. I had the 3 item combination plate with 2 cheese and 1 chicken enchilada served with bean and rice.

Sal's Mexican Restaurant has been around "since the beginning of time"! Always a friendly and efficient wait staff. The food is authentic and very tasty. Not a lot of ambiance but a fun place to eat.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Delicious! Quantity of food is large. Chips and salsa is a winner! Excellent mexican food with a family tradition. Feels like you are driving to someone's home in a residential area. Don't worry. It's worth the trip! Service was not a fast food atmosphere. It was busy when we visited and I was told it stays...

Not much to look at from the outside but they sure know how to make good Mexican food. Their enchilada special is to die for. An excellent place to eat at if you are passing through Madera.

Service started out a bit slow, but when chips and salsa arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. They were great! The margarita was also quite good. I ordered Sal's Fancy Burrito for dinner and it wasn't good unfortunately, but the chips and salsa and drink made up for the not so good entree.

Went their with friends and everyone loved their meal. Enchilada Suizas (My Fav) and they were wonderful. Love the table salsa and chips. The place is always packed so the noise level can be high. Lots of choices.
