Overpriced, horrible service, and food is not good. We came here for a family dinner. What a disappointment. Took two hours to get our food. Never did get our drinks we ordered. My husband ended up leaving with the kids as I waited another 30min for the bill. There was maybe two other tables. Waiter spent most his time outside... More

I always base my opinion of an authentic Mexican restaurant on the quality of their salsa. Great family restaurant and I have brought business groups from 12 countries here. Always satisfied and never hungry. Third generation family owned authentic meals. Can't go wrong and pleasant people.

Love their handmade fresh daily foods!! Handmade flour tortillas -which there are not many mexican restraurants out there now that make fresh ones anymore! Their shredded beef is so lean and their sauces are the best!! The fresh salsa (not cooked) is always excellent!!! Great friendly service and great food!!! Love this place!!!

The owners are very friendly and have been in the business for as long as I can remember. Service is excellent and can be fun at times. The food is always good and the portions are generous. They have good Mexican beers on tap.

We started eating here many, many years ago. A second location was opened in east Salem that we started going to because it was closer to our home. After eating there for 30 years, we thought we better go back to Los Baez before it closed due to retirement. Wow, what a change. The place has an old feeling and... More

Portions are large, prices are decent and the staff is so pleasant. Most Mexican food is alike, but I really enjoy the Fajitas at Los Baez.

We visited Los Baez 10 years ago, and weren't impressed. Even less impressed this week. Food wasn't very tasty, portions were very small ( small ice cream scoops for rice and beans), the waiter not at all friendly. We would most likely not go again. Restrooms, while clean were very outdated, paint chipped, old, dark and just not inviting.

This has always been our favorite Mexican restaurant in Salem, but lately we have been disappointed. The smiling, friendly faces and excellent service has been replaced with slow, impersonal service. Their salsa remains some of the best you'll find anywhere. But food quality is down from what it used to be while prices continue to increase significantly. What once was... More
