We had my father's suprise birthday party there and the food was amazing, the staff was wonderful, we couldn't have ask for anymore. They served over 40 people within 10 mins., everyone there just loved the food and the homemade tortillas were so good. THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR PARTY SUCH A SUCCESS.

Anyone who would like to visit the restaurant should pay heed to comments from those with a professional and/or unbiased standpoint. Unfortunately, the negative comments listed are a result of a smear campaign by a particular group of diners. The first negative review was written on the exact day when the dispute occurred and describes events inaccurately. The patron and their guests were asked to leave the premises after their alloted and *agreed-upon* ending time for their event had passed (another event was scheduled to occur after theirs). They were overly inebriated, became confrontational and physically threatening, and had to be removed by members of the Fresno Police Department who provide security for the restaurant.

Pros: amazing food! Try the Relleno de Res!

this place is terrible. poor service, disgusting drinks, and food was hardly edible. Not to mention, my date and I were surrounded by total sleaze. I think they only hire people straight out of the dump to work as the security guards. They are recognizable around town...total jerks. Some of the table wait staff people were nice, but they contrasted greatly with the overall experience of this joint.

Pros: waitstaff was okay

Cons: everything else

This place is one of those unprofessional, no-class, poorly managed and operated venues that perpetuates and maintains the low quality level that plagues Fresno food/drink establishments. The owner fronts as a professional but cheats his customers with terrible food and a watered down drink service. At a family event, hundreds of guests were shocked and disappointed by the way the owner and his staff handled their customers. After hiding behind swarms of grunting meathead security guards who got their immature aggression out on undeserving patrons, the owner broke the law by charging his customer's credit cards for amounts that were never authorized. Charges should and will be pressed. Fresnans beware...and take your money and time elsewhere. These guys don't deserve your patronage and should not stay in business.

Pros: it gets hoppin' after 10pm...IF you want to hang out with a bunch of rent-a-cops.

Cons: pretty much EVERYTHING. how sad.

Do not ever go to this restaurant unless you wish to be dragged out by a group of thugs posing as security gaurds if the owner decides that your party does not fit in with his trashy nightclub crowd. I too attended this infamous rehearsal dinner and was horrified by what happened. A mellow gathering of family and friends turned into an episode of Cops when the groom's brother/best man, one of the kindest people I know, was physically forced out of the building by the bouncers.
In addition to this completely inappropriate occurance, the service was terrible. We stood around for two hours with very little to eat or drink, and whenever we asked staff members for chips or water they acted as if it was a huge inconvience. The buffet was finally served at 9:00, and halfway through the line they ran out of food. While people were still waiting to eat we got the word that we were suppose to be out by 9:30 to clear the way for the regular Friday night crowd, complete with hired strippers standing outside. I know the family who hosted this event well, and they never would have agreed to these conditions had they been told, as the owner claims. PLEASE BOYCOTT THIS ESTABLISHMENT!

BOYCOTT THIS CORRUPT NIGHTCLUB POSING AS A RESTAURANT!

I recently was involved in a wedding rehearsal dinner at Salsa's for two of the most respected families in this community. It had been exclusively reserved for over a hundred people for the entire night. Well, the service was nonexistent, the food was disgusting and not what was promised or charged for (and ran out), the bathrooms were unsanitary, and without warning the manager and his security thugs kicked out all of the gentle, well-bahaved professional people who had travelled from all over the world to this special event, so that they could turn the place into a skanky nightclub, with strippers posing outside -- a complete shock to the families, and which was never previously disclosed. It ended dramatically when the best man was violently dragged out by the neck by the pathetic security guards because he stood up against the injustice of the establishment. The police called and I think charges might be pressed. I am a kind person, but the manager, Jesse, is a pathetic, lying slimeball, and a fool, because we would have stuck around spending a lot more money. PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS BUSINESS -- AND SPREAD THE WORD.

I recently attended an event at this restaurant and was shocked at the level of disrespect shown to all of the guests and the unprovoked and excessive violence on behalf of the security staff at this establishment. The manager that was supposed to be in charge of hosting the event was utterly useless, rude, and had no control over his establishment. The food was never prepared on time, the guests had to ask repeatedly to get a drink as nothing was out and available. I would never recommmend this place to a single person- there are plenty of mexican restaurants in fresno that not only have much better food but also treat their guests with respect and do not run a shady business. I suppose I can understand why they need so much security seeing as it is clear that the clientele they attract for their nightclub that they run after dinner hours is drawn in by the strippers they have paid to stand at the door. Two of the guests in attendance were dragged out of the restaurant in a violent manner because they asked to speak to the manager because guests were told they had to leave even though no mention of this had been made to the people who were hosting the event. The manager had lied and said that the restaurant would be available to the party for the entire evening- and instead kicked everyone out after about 2 hours. This was a rehearsal dinner and it was very unfortunate that so many of the guests had to witness such atrocious behavior on behalf of the staff at this disgraceful restaurant. Bottom line- never support this restaurant- you will be disappointed by their food and shocked by the way they run their restaurant. tell everyone you know.

I attended a private party at this establishment, only to have it come to a screeching halt when over 100 guests, including grandparents and small children, were rudely and violently forced to leave by hired goons posing as security guards so they could turn it into a nightclub (why they bother I have no idea, as the only nightclub partons I noticed after everyone left were maybe three trampy girls hanging out in front). The food was tasteless (until they ran out, leaving several guests hungry) and overpriced, the drinks like sugar water, and the manager, Jesse, needs to take a refresher course in hospitality and management skills. The service was non-existant. One server for 100+ people. We had to ask five times for a basket of tortilla chips. Then waited another 30 minutes for margaritas, which they expected us to portion out from a giant glass with a teaspoon. I've seen many restaurants come and go at this location, and I suspect this one is on its way out as well.
