You could tell by the tortillas and beef this was made by someone whose mother taught them to cook. Many patrons were Mexican that's usually a good sign. The waitress was very good and our service despite a buzy time was very good.

Cotija's is great authentic Mexican food and my favorite place in Salina to eat. They are very reasonably priced with a nice atmosphere and good service. None of the other Mexican places in town come close to quality.
