“It has changed, not for the better!”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

3 mos. ago I would have given this Salsaritas an Excellent rating. Something changed - I believe in their management. Most of their regular employees were let go. Since then the food is not as good. I've also noticed a change in the cleanliness of the restaurant. The glass partitions that separate the food from the customers in line are now filthy! I used to go here 2 to 3 times a week, but I think today was my last visit. I got 2 soft tacos w/chicken. The chicken now is on the greasy side and has a "wet" taste. I have no complaints about the servers. They are always nice & friendly. The ones they let go were also great! Just wish whatever occurred that implemented this change had never happened. I think I'll try the other location up the street even though it is not as convenient!

“Few times a month”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We go here a few times every month. My kids love it here. The one at Blakeney in South Charlotte is good. The one at Ballantyne is also good. That location may still have kids eat free events. The food has always been fresh. The staffing seems to change often and they are so busy that sometimes the tables aren't always cleaned off. The service is inconsistent, but food is consistently good....Also, they have a "frequent buyer card"...great deal!

Love the pizza and the burritos. Do not care for the tacos too much.

“Great airport food1”
Reviewed 15 July 2011

I just had a grilled chicken salad at the Salsaritas in Concourse E at the Charlotte, NC airport. The romaine lettuce was fresh and crisp, grilled chicken spicy and not fatty, and pico de gallo fresh and tasty. Without any salad dressing or cheese on top, this made for a healthy, low-cal (I hope and think!) lunch. Price with a soda was $10 and change. The service was so-so (the poor gals working there looked bored out of their minds) but they made the food to order. I still prefer the salad at Chipotle but for airport food, I highly recommend Salsaritas and think it makes a great choice.
