Salsaritas is one of the places I frequent when looking for variations of things to eat in Uptown Charlotte. They call themselves a 'fresh cantina' and also provide a healthy alternative to the regular mundane (and unhealthy) fast food chains. All of their veggies and meats are prepared daily. They offer a variety of Mexican cuisine from tacos to enchiladas. The lines are long but tend to move rather quickly.
Salsarita's is great Mexican for downtown. The food is very fresh and hot, and the service is good. Just make sure you are prepared to order...they will push you through the line very quickly.
As far as downtown goes, this is a competitor to Johnny Burrito. JB has slightly better flavoring, but I think that Salsaritas tastes slightly better because it seems more fresh. Also, unlike JB, they are more than happy to take any form of payment. Add to that a nice environment to site down and eat, and Salsaritas is a great place for downtown lunch dining.
Pros: Fresh food, Quick Service (even when lines are long)
Cons: Know your order and be prepared...they push you through quickly!
