Stingy with the Salsa – I ordered today for delivery to our business. Simply salsa, chips and guacamole. I got a small bag of chips and two of the tiniest condiment cups, one with salsa and one with guac. I don't know how they expect someone to stretch chips into that wee little bit of salsa. And the worst part is they charged me $3.25 for what was basically so-so chips..........I won't do that again!
Get with it, folks......if I order chips and salsa, I actually would like to have enough to get through the chips. Especially if you're going to rape my pocketbook. That burns me up and I won't EVER order from there again! I know they don't care because it's all about the bottom line. GREED!
Overcharged by 3 times!! – I ordered my meal. The lady ringing me up who hardly spoke English was taking a long time to process my credit card for under $10. I waited and waited, even asked if everything was okay, and she in 3 words reassured me that "yes, take long". Finally it went through. My meal was okay, not impressed but it wasn't the worst. The organization tactics they have is not the smoothest, not to mention the place is tiny. The next morning I check my bank account online to find that the lady ran my credit card 3 times the amount. I call them up to inform them, and Luis said if I were to run to the store, he'd be able to fix it fast.
I had a few minutes before I had to get to work, so I waited on line and when I got to Luis, he phones another manager at another location. That manager then insists that I go home, print out proof from my bank account. I had already mentioned I can pull my bank account on my phone. I told him I wasn't leaving and come back for a THIRD time since this was their problem. After convincing them of their problem, he handed me my money in cash. For what it's worth - I'm never going back there again.
Great lunch spot – This is one of my favorite places to go to lunch! The steak quesadilla is addicting. And the salsa is very good.
SALSA ROCKS – I love salsa fresh...........yum especially the guacamole...............its one of the best mexican restaurants ever.......i dont know why stupid people are talking bad about that restaurant. I love the place where it is located. I love the chimi changas or the chicken quesadillas.
Great steak quesidillas & pico de gallo. Staff super-friendly. My family's favorite resteraunt. – Great quesidillas, best pico de gallo I've tried anywhere. We have also been pleased with the vegetarian burritos, rice and black beans. We used to visit weekly, but the Morrisville location is closer and we now go there unless we're near Duraleigh for some reason (Carolina Hurricanes hockey!)
Several people seem unhappy about the limited number of high chairs. Our solution was to buy a portable booster and keep it in the trunk. It was inexpensive and we knew our child would always have somewhere to sit. (Conveniently our elder child outgrew the portable booster before our second child needed it.) Why let a lack of high chairs limit your choices? The Morrisville location has some booths and lower chairs, it's more kid friendly in that regard although they also have just two high chairs.
Good, Cheap Mexican Food! – I now live in MD but I used to work at Kroger at the corner of Creedmoor and Strickland Roads. We would get Salsa Fresh at least once a week. I love there shrimp tacos! Chips salsa and guacamole were a staple also. The staff is friendly and the prices a cheap for the quality of food. I love this place and when I visit NC I try to stop in and get my Salsa Fresh fix!
Good cheap mexican, no kids please - much better than Moe's – Looking for Moe's, but don't want to drive to Briar Creek? Excellent Food. Pleasant outdoor eating. GREAT salsa. Great Burritos.
Yummy Salsa!!! – Love, love, love this place!!! I've only tried the chicken tacos so far and they were amazing. I loved their salsa, too, it's so tasty, fresh and delicious, and far better than any other salsa I've had around here. I'm glad I found this place! Oh and the guacamole was good also!
Barely OK – I'd say the chips were bland and the salsa was OK. Lots of choices of salsa that was merely OK, but none of them knocked my socks off. I felt like the "chip salsa" was made about an hour before it was served. It tasted "fresh" all right - so fresh it tasted like tomato and onion salad. I had the Nachos with black beans and added chicken. All I can say about this concoction is that it was DRY. Really, nachos need a little more wet ingredients to make them good, and this dish needed queso sauce and lacked it. Since the chips are only OK to start, and they had only dry shredded cheese and black beans, with a dollop each of guacomole and sour cream, it was just a dry mess, and the tomatoe and onion salad that should have made it bearable didn't, b/c it just wasn't that good. I think I'll try it again and this time I'll try the burrito my friend had and hope they make the salsa the night before so the flavors have time to marry. Some things shouldn't be too "fresh".
LOVE THE TAMALES!!!! – Love it! I'm from California and find this is the closest thing I can find to what I'm used to. The salsa is great and the tamales are wonderful. The prices are reasonable, too! I just wish they'd take the offensive sign at the salsa bar down. That's really my only complaint, but otherwise people are friendly and the food tastes great!
