My daughter and I went here for lunch on Saturday. Service was ridiculously friendly and fast. They serve some of the best Mexican food I have ever had - the homemade Jalapeno stuffed peppers were incredible! Also highly recommend the Fajitas - just a great overall dining experience! Thank you!!

We were looking for a new restaurant with good quality food for a reasonable price. Our daughter, a Salem State student, recommended Howling Wolf. After searching, and coming up short, we decided to give this place a try. It was late (well for us) about 9pm when we arrived and I was surprised to see how busy it was. It... More

We brought our teenager daughter and her friend here for a late lunch while visiting Salem. It was an easy pleaser for all, from the guac to the tacos and sides of rice and beans. We all enjoyed the food and the girls even tried some ceviche which we enjoyed as well. The table was full, with fajitas, shrimp tacos,... More

Came here on an extremely busy night, however, even with a packed house and lots of noise our waitress was attentive and extremely pleasant. The food was incredibly good and I would absolutely recommend going.

I got take out and the food was great for take out. Worth the price and taste for take out. Probly better to dine as it always is but worth a delivery or take out.

This place never lets me down. Even after new management took over, the place offers great food at great prices. If Tex-Mex fare, music, friends and a salt/sugar rimmed margarita is your thing, you need to visit. Arrive early at prime times as there is often a line (average wait weekend nights 20 mins).
