Food is good, portions adequate and not over the top and reasonably priced. Not noisy, pleasing decor typical of a "South of the Border" feel and the wait staff is attentive.

Visited on a Wednesday night. The special for the night was the California Burrito. I had mine with steak and my wife had it with the chicken. The sauce was very good. It was not stuffed with rice or beans like some places. The burrito filled the plate from end to end. But you didn't feel overly stuffed after dinner.... More

We don't get here enough. It's close to our house. The food is great and the staff are nice. WE had the nacho chips which are brought to everyone and I ordered something different, "El Cazuelon", which is three kinds of meat: chicken, steak, and chorizo with rice, and frijolies. I also had a Negra Modello. My wife had just... More

The most recent review was about a girl "playing" with her foot, I was there and the girl simply tied her shoe... It's really embarrassing for the last person to lie about what happened. I love the food! Service is great! The place is clean! I highly recommend El Salto! Both locations are great!

Food was Mexican want to be. I saw one of the waitresses sitting out front and took her shoe off and was rubbing her foot. Told our waitress about it and she talked to her . The next thing I saw was that same waitress giving someone a to-go container and her finger were touching the inside of it.....She didn't... More

I stopped along the way for a lunch. I found that the staff was very attentive to my needs. The waiter got my meal promptly to me and I was able to get back on the road quickly. The lunch fajita is terrific. Plenty of food – too bad I didn't have any way of taking it with me…

I want to jump up and shout about this small Mexican restaurant in Maumee Ohio (in where Kanbaatar?). Relatively close to and South of the I-80 / I-90 Ohio Turnpike the first thing that grabbed my wife and myself was a GIANT basket of corn chips with a large jar of Salsa and a bottle of more Salsa on the...

Just old good food. Try the lava bowl meat combo. Step up from your normal fajitas. Sometimes the smaller less known places are best

This is a local Mexican Restaurant that we don't get to much. We had dinner here and it was good and their margaritas were great. The interior is okay and the chairs are very cute. The food seems a little more authentic Mexican compared to other restaurants we've been to. Definitely a nice, quiet place to enjoy the company of... More
