Was in town for business and colleagues recommended this place. I had the steak fajita salad. Will definitely return.

With so many things on the menu, it’s to do anything really well. They could do with more emphasis on the Tex-Mex and less on the burgers etc. After all their roots are in Mexican food. They brag about the tacos. So revamp the menu...More

Good food, somewhat non-traditional Tex-Mex. Tacos with steak bits good, but not a replacement for traditional flavor. Cheese enchiladas good, but not great. Good avocado/bean side dish & re-fried beans. Great pinto beans. Rice was bland. Choice medium red sauce or a little spicier green...More

ONLY thing that we did not like was the “cheese” dip for chips. It was more like a beef broth soup with cheese in it. Besides that, for sure recommend!!’

Higher quality Tex-Mex cuisine with some alternatives. Many varieties of tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, and salads.

My daughter was craving Mexican food after graduation so we headed to Salas. The restaurant is very inviting. We had some decent food, but nothing we are accustomed to. It was more Tex-Mex rather than real Mexican food. The red sauce tasted like it came...More

Hi there, I'm so sorry you didn't thoroughly enjoy your food at my restaurant. I can assure you, we make all our sauces from scratch...nothing is canned. Different regions prefer different food prep styles; we at Salas aim to offer a wide enough variety, with...More

I was not impressed with the food. The dip was watered down with broth and to be honest it was gross. The food wasn't that impressive either. Says it is a cantina but the food I got was bland. The positive I have to say...More

Cory, I'm sorry you didn't love the food, glad you loved the margarita. Our complimentary queso is the same recipe we've have for over 60 years...I am starting to see new people from different regions who aren't used to it. (BTW there's no broth in...More

It had been a few years since I'd had Salas' fajitas. I saw that they had a new location, so I set out from Okc to experience the new facility. I was not disappointed! Their beef fajitas were delicious, as was the Margarita. But the...More

Ya'll need to wipe your menus down. Dried cheese dip on the menu is totally unappetizing. The cheese dip is unique - it tasted cheesy, chicken-y and spicy. Good, but definitely different. And watery. The salsa is waaay too hot - one dip and I...More

Hopped in for an early dinner. Checked on wine and they carry Sutter Home brand so opted for margarita instead. Started with cream of jalapeno soup because I had never heard of it or had it before. It was very mild though and reminded me...More
