Driving south on 99 from Bay area and wanted to stop for a meal. Looked it up on line, and was not disappointed. Tacos and enchiladas were quite good. Have to say the chili relleno was a bit tough. Authentic food. Service was good as well. Nice find in a shopping center that I wouldn't have found on my own.

They serve authentic mexi with good size portions. The restaurant is small and fills up fast for lunch and dinner.

Worst sals restaurant I've been too! How people can eat Mexican food with no flavor is beyond me. I'll never come back my wife's carne asada tacos were so Blaw and my Famous fancy burrito was gross and smallest fancy I've ever had! This place sucks. Also my wife said no cilantro and they put cilantro on her food really... More

Having any event that is a go to appetizer platter. We also love their shrimp and avocado cocktail. They have great salsa and chips. It would be great to see an expansion on this place as it is always packed. Kids and families are always welcome here and they have great servers.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner plates are definitely very tasty. A la carte menus are very good if you don't want to eat that much. Salsa is definitely very good and also the selection of alcohol is good.

I thought this place was a great place to eat and I would say that I am a little more critical when it comes Mexican restaurants because I'm Hispanic but overall I would defiantly eat there again if I where in the area!

The fancy burrito and chimichanga rock! The food comes out of the kitchen too hot to eat and that is a good thing. Staff is quick and friendly without "fishing for tips."

Sal's is my go to place for Mexican food in Madera. The food is great and the price is good. The place is always busy so that is a good clue that it is a popular place.

Thank John B
