Baby Salsa is one of my favourite places to go for dinner, whether it be for date night or with the family. The deck is nice in the summer and the servers are great. To top it off, the food is delicious and authentic. Yum!

Based on the reviews I thought this place would serve fresh healthy Mexican food. The quesadilla was a gooey mess of paste with 2 tiny red pepper diced pieces. It is served with more filler food - a white rice with red color. This stuff...More
