I am astounded to read a review that someone had a bad experience at Salazar's! I've eaten there about 5 times and it seems like each time I go back the food gets better and better! Iv'e had their Boss Margarita and I honestly loved it,

I was invited to lunch at this restaurant in a group of 13 people. The host & hostess recommended this place, so I was expecting something reasonably good. Then I saw the menu. What kind of self-respecting Mexican restaurant serves Chinese chicken salad or burgers? Well, I figured I could at least get a margarita and the food couldn't be that bad, right? Wrong.

The first margaritas my husband and I ordered turned out to be made from sweet & sour mix and ice. It's not like there wasn't *enough* tequila, there was absolutely none. I thought maybe the waitress thought we ordered "virgin" ones by mistake, although who orders a top-shelf virgin margarita? I didn't want to make a fuss because we were sitting across from the host and hostess. So we drank the sweet stuff and ordered their "Boss" margaritas that contain no sweet and sour mix, so there could be no mistake. Yay, we got two more glasses of S&S mix and ice. Whatever. As they ignored my repeated requests for water, and we had been in the sun all morning, we eventually drank these as well.

Now for the food. My husband's burrito was bland and flavorless, but at least it was edible (we were ravenous). The carnitas I ordered were undercooked, the tortillas were so overcooked they were hard, and the rice and beans were inedible. The chips were marginally okay, but the salsa had a really off flavor. Yes, I'm talking bacterial growth.

I got a chance to look at the bill before it was paid, and sure enough, we paid over $40 for 4 glasses of mixer. The wait staff was surly and inattentive, even though the place was not at all crowded (big surprise).

The only good thing about this place was that I temporarily lost a bit of weight about 6 hours afterward.

We used to go here all the time for lunch. The food is awesome and the service is also great! It's a relaxing place to eat. We ususally like to eat at the bar, where it's more of a secluded area. Chips and salsa are the best and are always greeted. The lunch specials are affordable.

Bartenders are lazy and don't know how to make drinks. They are lucky that they are one of the only bars in Kingsburg so they are able to stay in business. Somebody please open a bar in this poor town that knows how a bar should be run.

Pros: Only bar in town

Cons: Idiotic bartenders

Very good traditional Mexican restaurant. Portions are good, the salsa's always freshly made, and the prices are right. I've had just about everything on the menu and can say with confidence that you really can't go wrong.
