The Wednesday and Saturday specials are outstanding, shredded beef burritos smothered in chile con queso, with a side of guacamole. Great for friends and family visits.

Off the beaten path and clearly favored by locals. La Salita served up a great meal for all in their casual, down to earth, strip mall setting. Chili rellenos and guacamole enchiladas were spectacular. Perfectly on the spicy side.

I always come here and grab the 3 item combo, grab the meat of the day in 2 enchiladas along with a swiss cheese relleno. Absolutely amazing. It does get busy so I recommend showing up early.
