Went to El Salto tonight with my family and some family friends.... It was the last time I will eat here. First off, they crammed 7 adults and a 1 year old into a tiny corner booth that was big enough for maybe 5 people. The waiter, Matt, was running around like a chicken with his head cut off but...

Our absolute Place for Mexican Food in Porter County. The service is attentive and friendly. The food is plenty and relatively inexpensive. Family friendly, also a full service bar. There are many Mexican restaurants in the area. We have tried most of them, but this is our choice. My favorite id Burritos Mexicanos

After out enjoying some of the beautiful sunshine and weather, I was still having a craving for Mexican food. I decided to treat myself to a different place that I have not been to before. Of course, you are a little skeptical of trying out some places, but that is the only way to explore and have more choices. Very... More

We were seated at the bar and immediately taken care of. I had the burritos and my wife had a veggie burrito. She also had a "Sangrita" drink and LOVED it! Service was very quick and we were impressed at how quickly the food came out. The atmosphere was nice and the people friendly. Highly recommend this place.

My go to for Mexican food. The drinks and drink specials are great. I really enjoy the taco salad. The beef is flavored well. Spice but not to much spice. You get free chips and salsa which is fresh and you can tell the chips are house made.

Stopped in tonight for dinner. We have been many times before but tonight, it was really good! The salsa was perfect. We have plenty of left overs for tomorrow. We were not disappointed. Our server was fantastic. I wish I could remember her name. Stop in & grab a bite. They have nightly specials. Tuesday's & Wednesday's are margharita nights.

My family and I have enjoyed El Salto's for many occasions from anniversary celebrations to school field trips. For the last 2 years I have brought my Spanish level 3 and 4 students here to have a day of complete Spanish speaking and authentic Mexican cuisine and culture. The waiters and waitresses speak Spanish to the students and there is... More

We had a lovely dinner here. We ate outside under the sun umbrella and enjoyed the evening. The chips and salsa are great as were the fish tacos. I also ordered queso dip that was excellent. I felt the staff was very attentive and quick to serve. A very family friendly place with lots of options for everyone.
