We all need a good Mexican joint to get our fix and this is the place in midtown to do so. There was no trouble to get a table on a Sunday evening. Service was a bit slow despite the lack of a crowd. They did not have the tequila I ordered but had other quality stuff which tasted amazing. Our entrees were served warm and were very tasty. Good room around most of the tables for a wheelchair, if needed.

Located in Midtown Global Market, A La Salsa is good, fresh, authentic Mexican food. Large portions at reasonable prices, and well presented. A very colorful atmosphere with friendly staff and delicious house margaritas. This is not part of the food court or other shops in the market but is accessible via the market even after the market area has closed. I'm already planning my next visits to include more friends and family.

The best mexican food I have ever had, hands down. We are currently at another mexican restaurant in MN and wish we could go back to A La Salsa!

Amazing. Don't miss this place! The shredded beef burrito was to die for. My husband had the three Amigos enchiladas and loved them!

We were staying at the Sheraton located next to the MIdtown Global Market, so we decided to have dinner there for the convenience. Luckily we chose Salsa A La Salsa. It was inviting, with friendly wait staff and nice decor. We chose to sit at a table and had a couple of cocktails first while we unwound from the day's travels. Our server was Bernabe and he was a treasure.

For an appetizer, we selected Devil Mary Wings with a roasted jalapeno cream sauce. Yummy.

For entrees, we ordered Relleno A La Carte and Chicken Chiltepin (very hot). The server suggested the Chiltepin would be too hot and to order it with the Devil Mary heat level. He was absolutely on target. The Chile Relleno was filled with ;Queso Fresco, garlic, oregano and fresh thyme, topped with ranchera sauce. The Chicken was boneless, skinless strips cooked in fresh garlic, wine and a chile sauce, served with black beans and flour tortillas. Fantastic. I highly recommend.

Can't fault the food quality or quantity, but let's face it, you're in an open market. At least it isn't the food court, though. The pork tamales (3) were more than enough, without sides. While the pork had a nice bite to it, the masa was almost creamy, but still had substance. She had the chicken mole. A qtr chicken, dark or white meat, she got white. It comes with tortillas, rice, and two black bean tamales. Huge take-away box, obviously. We'll be back.
