I love the enchiladas... My kids love the queso and this place has top notch service. We go here about 3-4 times a month.

You can judge a good Mexican restaurant by how good the basics taste. Their rice and beans were so good...too many times the cooks put too much salt in these San Antonio Tex-Mex restaurants...I was delighted that Salsalitos Mexican rice we not overloaded with salt. Also, my fiance prefers to eat black beans and usually they aren't offered at other... More

By far one of the best restaurants in the area!! Service is always great and food is delicious. Menu offers authentic mexican favorites with some local taste added in for a perfect combination. Very good lunch specials and excellent dinner options.!!

This place has so much potential. We visited on Sunday evening because we didn't want to wait in the enormous line at El Chapparral. Our food overall was decent, but the service was extremely disappointing. Our food for a table of 4 did not come out together. We were half thru before the tortillas arrived, our waiter kept disappearing and... More

This was our second time to eat at this restaurant and while we didn't get a good waiter, the food was delicious. I purchased the fish tacos which came with cabbage, avocados and this delicious chipotle creme sauce on the side that I could have eaten on everything, it was that good! My husband enjoyed the beef fajitas quite well.... More

There are far better Mexican establishments than this place. The margarita was great but the salsa that came with the chips was bland and tasteless. I order the fish taco lunch special and substituted one puffy chicken taco. The puffy taco was okay. Not as good as Henry's Puffy's Tacos further down Bandera. The fish taco however was horrendous. It... More

Went to Salsalito's tonight for take out dinner. It took nearly an hour to complete my order. In the beginning, no one seemed to want to come over to take my order. Once the order was submitted, it took for ever for the food to be ready. several employees blamed the delays on not having enough staff. A manager never... More

We had the cheese dip- ordered a small but was not enough so we ordered another large. The salsa was great! Puffy tacos were excellent. Enchiladas were good too. Very nice friendly people, even though it was busy.

Salsalito's is one of our favorite local restaurants. My wife and daughter had cheese enchiladas. They report they were yummy, cheesy, and the chili con carne was very good. I had a tamale plate and it was great. My gold margarita on the rocks was one of the best I've had. Not sure I know what a five looks like,... More

Went there with wife, son and 3 grandkids. I'll summarize...Decent food, portions and prices. Rice and borracho beans were very good. Fajitas over cooked. fajitas chimichanga...( one was good, the other swimming in oil (go figure). Overall good including service.
