Nothing extraordinary here. Small walk-up-and-order fast food place with several tables outside in shade. Small bar. Nice friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

We always enjoy stopping in at Salsarita's. The service is always fast and friendly and we really enjoy the food! We stopped in today and had Quesadillas and built a Low Carb Taco Salad.
