Found this to be average Mexican restaurant. However, the chicken mole was fantastic. We came later on Taco Tuesday night, so it was very busy and we had a long wait. The salsa bar was good.

Salsa Brava has some amazing salsa. I would suggest mixing the pico with the pineapple habanaro salsa. All the food here is amazing. For a quick small meal, the quesadillas are delicious. Lunch and dinner, the enchiladas are great. My favorite is the sour cream...More

The servers and staff here are great! I expected different but excellent Mexican food here. It was good, but just average with not too much flavor. I like the salsa bar, but again, the salsa was just average.

We found this place on the Diners, Drive Ins and Dives website and figured we would check it out on our way through town. We loved everything we ordered and thought the service was great. Extra bonus that it happened to be Margarita Monday!

Reminded me of my grandmother and aunts cooking. Very good and very great prices! I got the chili relleno meal deal, 1 enchilada, 1 taco and 1 relleno. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing.
