An exciting atmosphere, always feels like a celebration. Food and cocktails are very tasty. There are a few unique shooters and variations of tequila.

Was up in JHB for work and my brother suggests this new causal Mexican place for a bite out. What a great fresh and hip little place it was. Cocktails flowing, young happy people having a great time and of course well prepared tasty Mexican food to make what was an unexpectedly great evening. Well done Salsa team may you guys grow from strength to strength.

Spent an awesome afternoon with family at this fun, trendy spot at Bedford Centre, the Nachos hit the spot, the soft shell tacos and I tried all 5 on the menu where hit and miss. The prices were reasonable but not the best Mexican ever.

The good - bright, cheerful and unpretentious decor. The waitress was warm, friendly and attentive, food and drinks brought out promptly. Cocktails were very tasty.

The not so good - food quality was ok. The pulled pork was drastically over-sauced, which then defeats the purpose of having a taco. The waitress did not explain the menu to us, so we missed out options we could possibly have enjoyed better.
Was also really odd that bottles of Louisiana Crystal were on the table. Hot sauce is Southern and not Mexican. I'm all for Joburgers being exposed to other flavors of the world but can we try be authentic and get things right? Salsa bills themselves as 'authentic' and 'Mexican grill'. What is served is more Cali and Texmex. Never mind problematic stereotypes referenced in the menus. Enough about that.

The ugly - it was noisier than a night club. So noisy that we could barely hear the really nice festive music they were trying to play (never mind hear conversation). Also, several clearly underage folks - particularly girls were buying and drinking shots.

Hubby and my toddler visited for lunch and enjoyed the variety and the atmosphere lots of fun. Love the crocheted blankets for patrons comfort outside and the manager was so kind to my son. I had the nachos and my son of course ate half of mine and just sniffed his ribs and chips (kids!). Hubby had quesidila as loves calzone so this was a different experience.
