We didn't call early enough to get a reservation, and they didn't open until 5pm on Sunday (7/9/17), so we figured we'd just show up at their door a 4:45pm and see what happens. We weren't the only ones; there was a line of about...More

The salsa was not to my liking. It tasted more bbq than spicy. The chips lacked salt. The dinners were not spiced up enough. The server was tired and unenthused. The restaurant is loud and hot unless you're seated outside

I consider myself a foodie and would say this restuarant is on my top selections for mexican in all my travels. I had the enchilada and lobster quesadilla AMAZING!! Lime cilantro soda was also a great drink to cool down in summer!!

One of my favorite restaurants we visited on our long New England trip. Food was delicious and not overly priced, service great, ambiance great, Margarita most excellent!! Would defiantly make a point of returning if ever in the area again.

Food was ok, nothing amazing. Nothing memorable about the meal. If you crave Mexican and a margarita this will do it. But don't expect to me wowed here. If you are walking by and you are craving mexican in downtown Newport this is your place.

I love Perro Salado, and I agree with all the five-star reviews below, and I love the short ribs and the avocado fries and the white bean and kale salad. However, diners should be aware of something that was new to me: two of us...More
