for $3 and under I can enjoy a Cup of the "soup of the day". The Pezole (sp?) is DELICIOUS with all the 'sides' tossed in and the lime squirted over the top. Meaty, tender pork with Indian corn (Hominy) in a flavorful yet NOT spicy red sauce. The 'sides' to toss in that "complete / bring out the Full... More

Salvador's was a great place to eat. We came in right before closing (didn't know the times of operation) they didn't say anything to us, we got great service along with a great meal and no one rushed us.

Food is freshly made, and tastes like you would get in a restaurant in Mexico. Sausage usually great and made on site

On our way to Tenaya Lake in Yosemite National Park we stopped by Salvador's for breakfast. Taking a risk as we've never eaten breakfast at a Mexican restaurant we were pleasantly surprised. Our server was super friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant. Our breakfasts were delicious and we could tell the food was prepared with great pride. After we ate... More

No one will be offended by this place, but it's nothing to rave about. Salsa was too mild for our tastes; usual menu items included basic enchiladas, tacos, etc. I had the chile relleno, and was pleased that it wasn't too egg/breaded up. Mrs. C. had the shrimp fajitas. Staff was pleasant; decor was eclectic (stereotypical serapes and sombreros, combined... More

Good Mexican food on our first night here. Good service and fair prices. Even our vegetarian daughter found something yummy. Took leftovers to the hotel and ate them the next day

I went there with a friend for lunch and the service seems to be going down hill. The food was good but I wasn't impressed

Being locals, we eat at Salvador's often. The food is prepared Baja style and served hot, tasty and in a timely manner. The servers are friendly and accommodating. My favorite dish is the chile verde enchilades (pork) and my wife's is the chicken fajitas. Both are delicious. Salvador's is a favorite for locals.

Thank Gary F
