Excellent food. Excellent service. Delicious! Quantity of food is large. Chips and salsa is a winner! Excellent mexican food with a family tradition. Feels like you are driving to someone's home in a residential area. Don't worry. It's worth the trip! Service was not a fast food atmosphere. It was busy when we visited and I was told it stays...

Not much to look at from the outside but they sure know how to make good Mexican food. Their enchilada special is to die for. An excellent place to eat at if you are passing through Madera.

Service started out a bit slow, but when chips and salsa arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. They were great! The margarita was also quite good. I ordered Sal's Fancy Burrito for dinner and it wasn't good unfortunately, but the chips and salsa and drink made up for the not so good entree.

Went their with friends and everyone loved their meal. Enchilada Suizas (My Fav) and they were wonderful. Love the table salsa and chips. The place is always packed so the noise level can be high. Lots of choices.

Went into Sal's with some business associates - had very good Mexican food - had two burritos stuffed with beans and cheese. Chips were very good too.

The dinner was very good and enjoyable. The only suggestion I have would be to upgrade the chips, they tasted like the big bag brands from the discount stores. Other than that it was all good.

This is highly rated restaurant so I have some expectations when I came in. It is in a strip mall and doesn't look like much from the outside. Staff are friendly and attentive. Chips and salsa are very good. I had the Eleanor salad with no dressing and looks very dry. Very likely other dishes are much better.

Stopped in for dinner. Very good chips and salsa. Hope Sal's combination. Chicken enchiladas and beef taco was excellent. Chili Rellano was a little small

We stopped in Fresno on the way to Yosemite and went to Sal's because it was highly rated. It was conveniently located just off the 41 freeway in a strip mall. I had Sal's original combo, my wife had chicken enchilada's. She said, "this chicken tastes like it came from a can," I agreed that the chicken in my taco... More

Grew up in Selma where the original Sal's is located. We always go to Sal's a couple times when visiting Fresno. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly.
