Salsa's is our choice for Mexican food when in Galveston.. While not being authentic Mexican food, their complimentary salsa is simply delicious. (We bought some to take back home ) We don't eat the avocado salsa. We really enjoy the shrimp cocktail. SPICY!

Previous reviews indicated this place was decent, but this wasn't our experience. Waited an excessive amount of time for our food, salsa was marginal and chips were cold and soggy with grease. NS.More

Salsa's location right on the Seawall is nice, especially if you want something other than fried seafood. The atmosphere is classic Tex-Mex. The margarita I had was very good, and chips and salsas were excellent. However the food itself was mediocre, actually rather bland. Also,...More

I ate there and I did not find it to be that good for Mexican food. Even the grilled shrimp was skimpy.

Description
Opened in January 1998 by Jorge and Antonio Oyervides and a friend, Frank Diaz, Salsas Mexican & Seafood Restaurant is their first restaurant, though the three have been in the restaurant business for more than 24 years. Salsas is located at 4604 Seawall Boulevard - and features plenty of parking, a breathtaking Gulf view from our enormous outdoor patio, and beautiful sunshine.Our fine Mexican restaurant is bright, clean and colorful. Each table features two tantalizingly-different salsas, along with crispy, light tortilla chips. The menu offers traditional Mexican dishes like chicken or beef fajitas, enchiladas and burritos, plus some not-so-traditional platters such as seafood with a south-of-the-border flair. We invite you to savor your favorite dish and enjoy our frothy, refreshing margaritas. Happy Hour is Monday thru Friday from 3pm to 7pm. Salsas offers a daily Lunch Special from 11am to 3pm Monday thru Friday. Pickup orders are welcomed; simply call ahead. We look forward to serving your entire family!Salsa's Mexican Restaurant offers a breathtaking Gulf view from our enormous outdoor patio, and beautiful sunshine. Enjoy our colorful, delicious Mexican food along with a frothy, refreshing margarita.
