“Best in Madera”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for traditional Mexican food at a good price then Sal's is the place for you. The shrimp on the specials is a real treat but I more often stick to my standby, the Chimichanga. Filled with your choice of meat and then deep fried and covered with sour cream and guacamole, this dish will never disappoint.

“5 de Mayo. ”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

This is not my first time here, and that is why I am now rating it, after like 7 times eating here not by my choice but friends who actually like the chips and salsa, so to be honest it's not that great and the service is best from the buser than by the waitresses, I'm not sure if is because of the general thing about Mexicans don't tip well, which on my part just don't apply at all, good service always gets from me at least 25-30% tip but here I just didn't feel welcome, the food is just OK and if you order tacos of any kind make sure to check again because I got more cabbage than meat or fish, totally not work paying something you don't get. Anyway the only good thing are the chips and salsa.

“Sals is Heaven!!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Everytime I visit Madera I make sure to stop by Sals for some of the best mexican food ever. The Chili Cheese dip is a meal in and of itself and is fantastic. Everything I have had here is great. The service is always good. This should be on the 'Do not skip' list of Madera. The atmosphere won't blow you away but the food will. The shrimp enchilada is well worth a try as well!
