Another Mexican place opened up that is close to home and its so much better. El Salto is better than Pepes for sure. Their salsa has a lot of cilantro in it and it seems to over power it. Chips are hard and thick. It's...More

Good food good service. The Bistake El Salto is fantastic. Get the flan for desert. Sometimes there is a long wait. But worth it.

The fajitas - awesome. They ask of ID's and we weren't carrying one so couldn't order alcohol. Lots of mosquitoes outside so make sure to apply a insect repellent if you are going in evening. Food is very nice and service is a little slow.

Come here for business ocassionally, but not too often because it does take forever. The food is good but not great. If you have the time you may enjoy it. It does have a nice atmosphere.

As the mother ship of a series of Mexican restaurants in the Porter County area this place had to be good to allow their business to be built. The food is pretty good. Not extremely authentic, but it is well presented, and comes with a...More

I haven't been to El Salto since Serranos opened up but some crazy drunk driver plowed into the rehab at 10am and shut down that entire plaza so I defaulted back to El Salto since it's 1/4 mile away. The service is as I remembered...More
