Salsa's is always popular and you may have to wait for a table, but it is well worth the wait! On a Wednesday night we were able to be seated immediately. The service is excellent-always friendly and helpful with suggestions on the menu. Mexican food with a Caribbean flavor-the dishes are interesting, flavorful, and served piping hot. Of course they...

We just had dinner 2 nights ago at Salsas in downtown Asheville and it was very good. We arrived at 7:45 on a Wednesday night and had no trouble being seated. However, within 30 minutes the place was crowded. The Mexican+Caribbean menu puts a unique twist on favorites that mostly works to the benefit of both. The guacamole+chips was fresh... More

This is the best Tex-Mex food ever. We ate here after having a friend recommend it and it was wonderful. The portions are really big and you think you're not going to be able to eat it all, but you do because it's just that good. When we left we didn't leave with that over-stuffed, bloated feeling--it was a "good"... More

We always liked this spot in downtown Asheville. Good fresh Mexican with a Caribbean flare. Good margarita and guacamole-salsas. Ever changing menu with upscale food.

It's not a fancy place but has a nice atmosphere. The food was prepared guickly and brought out hot and was extremely tasty,... More

This was our second visit to Salsa's, and it was just as wonderful as our first visit last year. If you want some incredible food with unique flavor that you'll be talking about for weeks, this place should definitely be on your Asheville itinerary. Great vegetarian and vegan options as well. Substitute tofu for anything on the menu; it's delicious... More
