I enjoyed my meal here. The salsa was quite good - tangy and spicy. My margarita was well done - a generous size and appropriately potent. The service was fast and friendly. Would definitely visit again.

Every time we are in the area, this is a must stop. The food is delicious authentic Mexican. The staff however is Kinda come and go, sometimes you get a good waiter sometimes you don't, but other than that it's a great atmosphere and you have to try the green sauce and enchiladas.

We ate here while visiting the island for the weekend. The food was OK but not as good as we were hoping. The chips seemed rather stale and our entrees were just not that tasty. The service was pretty good, though, with our waitress doing her best to accommodate us.

The place was huge and the service was good. The food was good... I had some questions about the way things were prepared and the server gave me a dish that wasn't what I asked for... I ended up with a chicken burrito instead of a chichen chimichanga.. the meat was flavorful and tasty and prices are reasonable..

Hot, fresh and very good food. We all really enjoyed our meal last night. FUN atmosphere and service was very good. I had the beef enchiladas and it was a generous portion. I don't think you'll leave hungry. I thought it was reasonably priced also!

We love Salsa's. We eat here everytime we come to town. The food is good beer is cold and the atmoshere is upbeat. The only problem we have had is the wait staff understanding us and getting our order correct. We say small they bring big. That ends up costing me. I do wish that the fajitas had more meat... More

Beautiful Mexican restaurant with a lot of selections in seafood, chicken, beef and pork. Mariachi band was present during our visit. Service was excellent and friendly. My only negative was that to request spicy salsa for our chips was an additional charge for a small bowl, and the increase in hotness was negligible. Still, great food!

Description
Opened in January 1998 by Jorge and Antonio Oyervides and a friend, Frank Diaz, Salsas Mexican & Seafood Restaurant is their first restaurant, though the three have been in the restaurant business for more than 24 years. Salsas is located at 4604 Seawall Boulevard - and features plenty of parking, a breathtaking Gulf view from our enormous outdoor patio, and beautiful sunshine.Our fine Mexican restaurant is bright, clean and colorful. Each table features two tantalizingly-different salsas, along with crispy, light tortilla chips. The menu offers traditional Mexican dishes like chicken or beef fajitas, enchiladas and burritos, plus some not-so-traditional platters such as seafood with a south-of-the-border flair. We invite you to savor your favorite dish and enjoy our frothy, refreshing margaritas. Happy Hour is Monday thru Friday from 3pm to 7pm. Salsas offers a daily Lunch Special from 11am to 3pm Monday thru Friday. Pickup orders are welcomed; simply call ahead. We look forward to serving your entire family!Salsa's Mexican Restaurant offers a breathtaking Gulf view from our enormous outdoor patio, and beautiful sunshine. Enjoy our colorful, delicious Mexican food along with a frothy, refreshing margarita.
