I frequent this restaurant quite often. The cashiers leave a little to be desired, but the wait staff is great. They know their menu & their friendly. Little fun fact: They have the best fries ever!

I have been taking my family to Cafe Salsa for 25 years. The food has never changed and is not only high quality with great flavor but plentiful. I have never had to send back a single item and often referred friends from out of town here. The service though is by far the best feature ever. Chendo and Juan... More

Cafesalsa has the best tortillas and salsa. We pick them up for parties and friends look forward to eating them. The atmosphere is fun and welcoming. The food is tasty with an extensive menu. Service is always terrific and prices are reasonable.

I went here with a group of 17 people. The servers were very attentive with us, bringing each person their own bowl of salsa and lots of chips. Whenever the chip bowl was low there were more chips coming without having to ask more. The chips and salsa were great. I had the steak burrito and that beast was fantastic.... More

Best Mexican sit down place in all of lagrange area hands down. Stuffed Carne Asada I highly recommend. But seriously, everything is good. Best complimentary chips and salsa around. None of the other Mexican in the area comes even close to beating this place and quality of food. Coming from a true foodie and Mexican food enthusiast

I'm always looking for new Mexican restaurants to try and have been meaning to try this place for awhile. I think I was expecting the restaurant to be a little fancier on the inside, rather than the typical cheesy-outdated-Mexican décor. I'm not even sure if this was considered Mexican décor as they were playing Backstreet Boys. The chips seemed very... More

Food is average, price tag is high. Staff is clueless to customer needs, seem much more intent on hooking up with each other than serving customers. Much better choices in the area, for much more reasonable prices.

We have passed this place many times and stopped for dinner. It was a busy Friday night and the place was busy. Upon being seated while looking around I noticed that the pattern on the booths/tables was very floral from the 1980's or before. The rest of the décor was okay it was just the bold floral patterns that threw... More
