Went on the recommendation of some local folks. Bright, lively, friendly. Creative combinations of standard American/Mexican food, but well-done. We went on half price margarita night, and half price was less than $3. The restaurant is in an older brick building that's heavy on atmosphere. You should absolutely go.

Visited El Salto after the Theater At The Center performance in Munster. It is very close to the theater and serves excellent Mexican fare...and their margaritas are "ginormous" at a very reasonable price. Chimichangas and tamales were our choices served with their infamous beans and Mexican rice. Their menu is very large with choices to cater to every appetite. The... More

Nice variety of mexican fare. Margaritas are awesome! We enjoy the main courses. We order the meat soup to share and dip chips in it. Yum.

The food is good for the portion you get. It basic Mexican food but made pretty well. The pricing I found reasonable and did not set me back a great deal for what I got. I think overall if your looking for a decent choice for Mexican food this restaurant is good.

The Restaurant was highly recommended by locals. My visit for dinner was a big disappointment. Restaurant is part of a local chain,place is dirty and outdated. Crowded, a lot of local regular visitors who seem to like the place. Service is poor and irregular, wait for ordered food way to long. Prices are reasonable, however the food very bad. Drinks...

I enjoyed lunch here while visiting the town for a wedding. The food was good overall and the prices were reasonable. The food is not the most authentic but the mole sauce was tasty and the homemade salsa was good. The lunch specials are well priced and service was fast.

Needed a place to go for some drinks & food. We go there a lot & most of the time the food is just what we ordered. Good not great, but they do make great Margaritas I all different tastes & sizes.
