Salsarita's is an awesome restaurant and bar! The atmosphere is lively, great for friends and family. It has more options than competitors, and a great build your own option. I have been to Salsarita's countless times, and haven't been disappointed. The signature Quesorito is must try! I highly recommend giving Salsarita's a try, trust me you won't be disappointed. ;)

Eating healthy is a personal matter of choice. We love this place because it fits into our busy lifestyle. All fresh food choices, made right in their kitchen, we were pleased to see whole grain rice offered with black beans, your choice of meats...gotta try this with the pulled pork...and of course, the Pico de Gallo. As an added treat... More

Always enjoy fresh, made to order food from Salsarita's! I enjoy eating anywhere that the food is literally put together in front of me. You can pick exactly what you want in your tortilla or bowel to ensure your food is made exactly as you want it. I would definitely recommend!

The service is fast and the food is great. I love the pulled pork with black beans and cheese. Everything tastes great, so it is hard to go wrong because you tell them what ingredients to put in your dish.

Although the food isn't awful, the way the staff SLOPS it together in front of your eyes is extremely unappealing. It reminds me of a cheap cafeteria. They are a take off on Mo's and pretty much the same thing without the pleasant staff.

We have eaten here in Hickory, Charlotte and Myrtle Beach and it never disappoints. The ingredients are fresh and very flavorful. My wife loves the Taco Salad and I prefer the vegetable Burrito, both are fantastic when loaded with the black beans, refried beans, rice, fresh grilled peppers and onions and all the other great flavor packed toppings. The flavors... More

My sister, daughter and myself ate lunch here the other day. The food was good and fresh ingrediants. I really enjoyed my buritto bowl. It is resonably priced and was worth every penny. Wish we had one of these back home.

We are fans of Salsaritas and have eaten at this location a few times. Our favorite menu item is the Two Taco combo, which comes with chips and a drink for $6.79, which is very reasonable. They have lots of fresh ingredients to choose from and you can see everything as they add it to your taco. The pulled pork... More
