The food is good, but not special. They have a good assortment of beers--both domestic and imported. The house margaritas are not very good.

The service is spotty.

First, Tripadvisor still lists Girasoles as being in Poncha Springs. It is in Salida on US 50.

We ordered a variety of dishes and all in our group were well satisfied. Being from OK we are used to TexMex and were delighted with Girasoles' less firey version of Mexican. We all commented on their salsa. Unlike at least one earlier reviewer, we did not wait unduly long either to order or for our meal to arrive. In fact, if you pay attention you will see the place is very actively supervised. A good thing indeed in a restaurant.

Can't stop without saying how entertaining and personable our waitress was. I regret I did not get her name, but she was a delight. It would have been worth the trip just to be around someone so upbeat, cheerful and so concerned that we get what we wanted and liked what we got.

The place was NOT busy yet we waited for everything. Someone to wait on us, the drinks, the food, the bill, even the credit card machine was incredibly slow.
People that came in after us actually left before ordering.
Food was OK, but not worth the time spent.

The mexican food here was delicouis and the mixed drinks were wonderful too. Very good place to end your evening with and relax after a day of site seeing in this area. The seafood was really good. Would highly recommend.

My opinion of course, but this place really is authentic.
Out on 50 in a strip mall, so it's not like you'd propose there, but the food is fast and tasty, and their tables allow for big groups. Good prices, alot of tasty chips and salsa, so you really need to give this place a try if Mexican food is what you're tasting.
Enjoy, Salida1048
