Baby Salsa is one of my favourite places to go for dinner, whether it be for date night or with the family. The deck is nice in the summer and the servers are great. To top it off, the food is delicious and authentic. Yum!

Fresh ingredients, excellent service,tasty food. Reasonable prices. Their screaming hot salsa is what it says. I have to mix it with the sour cream they offer. Excellent spot for a quick meal or take out.
