Visited Sausal for lunch for the first time; really enjoyed the tastes and variety they had to offer; we enjoyed a wide variety of appetizers and entrees and found them all to be excellent. Nice variety of local craft beers. Will return to this excellent...More

Great place to unwind and drink after work or with friends. Food is Mexican with a twist. Healthy selections too. Ordered their tacos, nachosnwith spinach dip and tostados. Wide selection for drinks. Service is exceptional. Resto a bit pricey too.
