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.... More

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.... More

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... More

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,... More

The strawberry Margaritas tasted faintly of raspberry, who knows if that was intentional, but it is good. The standard chips came with ho-hum pico de gallo (made with anemic tomatoes) and a green chile salsa that was very good. We both had the taco plate with rice & beans ~ the sides were good, albeit unremarkable. The tacos were quite... More

I went with a couple of friends for a Mexican groceries shopping spree and for lunch we decided to treat ourselves to some Mexican food. The food was truly outstanding. I had what were most likely the best enchiladas I have ever had. I ordered the ones with three different sauces and the mole poblano had a very memorable complex... More

A La Salsa, located in the Midtown Global Market, has some of the best Mexican food in Minneapolis. They also have a most impressive array of tequilas as well! The atmosphere is cozy, warm and inviting. You can dine at the bar or a table and the service is friendly, and extremely attentive. They serve one of the best Chile... More

I really wanted a margarita and we were at the Global Market (which is awesome), so we ended up here. It was totally empty on a Thursday afternoon, so we had great service. The food, however, was less than great and neither of us cleaned our plates (which we usually do). The margarita was average. But, really, Mexican food in... More
