This restaurant is no longer a La Salsa franchise, though it is still a Mexican restaurant. Coincidentally, the quality of the food has declined with this change. The change in the food is subtle, but all point to lower costs. For example, the veggies in the no rice no beans burrito are less plentiful and cheaper (e.g more corn, no... More

When we first walked in I just didn't expect much. Thinking it more of a fast food place. However, one bite in my enchilada and I was in awe! I make enchiladas. I know the difference between homemade & restaurant quality. This was amazing! If I ever have the opportunity to return, you can guess what I'm ordering!

I don't generally eat in chain places, much less review them, but maybe this will help someone else to make a choice. The chain issue comes in because the place is almost devoid of atmosphere, except for that which is company-approved. Similarly, service is kind of production line - though pleasant and quick. If you like true Mexican or Tex/Mex,... More

I tried the taquitos with chicken and chips. I ordered a regular margarita. My food was delicious and my drink hit the spot. The salsa bar had the best variety that I have ever seen. Truly impressed. The mango salsa is really tasty. I can't wait to go back. The employees are very odd and make it uncomfortable when you... More

Stopped off for a quick bite to eat halfway along an all-day drive. I had the chicken taquitos....a bit too doughy, too greasy, and lacking in any real taste. It all would've gone down better with a cold beer, but since I faced several more hours of driving and was already tired, I stuck to water. None of the various... More

Food was a huge disappointment. Visited on a Thursday night not busy at all. Food was lacking flavor and room temperature. Ordered fajitas expected sizzling platter everything on it was cold. Rice was undercooked. They have a salsa bar that you can help yourself to but there was nothing special. Kids ordered enchiladas, lacked flavor and looked like they came... More

We have been here about 5 times since it opened, most recently being in August. This is a great place to stop. The food is very good and the portions are large. The service is also very fast. This is located near the Olive Garden at the entrance to the Rockaway Mall.

This was my first time visiting La Salsa and it was delicious! They have at least 5 different salsas that were all very good also. My husband and I at the taco's and we both were very satisfied. The employees were very helpful and friendly.
