Salsa had a very strong tomato base. A little cilantro would have made it great. I wasn't a fan. I got the Pollo Cancún. It was okay. Good serving of chicken, and that tasted great. It comes with their "famous" cheese sauce. It seemed they put two teaspoons worth on and it just soaked into the rice. Water tastes fine.... More

This restaurant on Ritchie Hwy in Glen Burnie, in a standalone building easily seen from the Hwy, has very good Mexican Food and top flight Margueritas. The service is always prompt and friendly, and the waitstaff was always tolerant and receptive to our attempts at fledgling Spanish. We were regular patrons, but have since moved away; when we are in... More

Thank you for all of the reviews for El Salto. My husband and I were looking for a local Mexican food place for date night. So I went on trip advisor and found El Salto. I had never heard of it, but my husband had been there before and said it was good. I wasn't disappointed, the food was great,... More

This is not your typical chain Mexican restaurant. Instead, this is more like a small eatery you'd find in a typical Mexican town. Portions are big, prices very reasonable. Good selection for vegetarians like my wife. Can't wait to go back, this is one of the places I really miss from Baltimore.

We have been coming here for many years. It started out as a dirt-cheap hole-in-the-wall. As they have continued to upgrade the property over the years, the surroundings have become much more comfortable and the prices somewhat less of a bargain. Not everything on the menu is great, but they do a few things very well. Their fajitas are as... More

Salsa is mostly just pureed tomatoes. But the lunch fajitas were very good. Not very hot or spicey but good flavor. It is from the mixuchan (sp) region. I have learned authentic Mexican places are very authentic to their region. My favorite region so far is Jalisco!. This place serves good portions for good pricea. Fast and friendly service.
