Success! Thanks for posting your review of Salsa Mexican Caribbean Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

We REALLY enjoyed Salsa's....! A must...

Friends of ours recommended Salsa's in Asheville during our visit to the Carolinas. We did not get there until minutes before the 3 p.m. lunch closing time. There was another couple also wanting to dine there per their friends' recommendations as well. \r
The staff said they would be closing but because we had come from afar, agreed to stay open to serve us. What a treat as the food was so worth it - healthy

Ugly servcie from a poor excuse of a waitor

My family and I ate at this restaurant last night. It was highly recommended by a friend. We recieved poor service from our waitor who was not proffesional to say the least. The food was not that good, we ordered water to drink,and that's what we got, warm tap water with no ice. We left 4 full plates of food on the table and had to go to McDonalds afterwards to get food that we could eat. When we were ready to go w... view more

Not what it used to be

I lived in Asheville until 2000 and Salsa's was always my favorite restaurant. I return to Asheville every year and Salsa's is always the one place I am sure to visit. Two weeks ago my husband and I had lunch there and were extremely disappointed. We ordered the chicken nachos which normally are huge and piled high fresh tortilla, yucca, and taro chips, and unusual ingredients with eclectic and exotic flavors. Wh... view more

Well worth the wait!

I've eaten dinner at salsa's many times - each time waiting anywhere from 2 minutes to an hour - but it's ALWAYS been worth the wait. Start with their house margarita - fresh citrus blend of flavors, not sickenly sweet, way too easy to gulp down. I have rarely eaten off of their regular menu - they have a Fabulous and extensive list of specials that have alway been fabulous. We recently had an empanada filled with pe... view more

Great Mexican/Caribbean food

Originally stopped by on a Friday night for dinner but it was too busy so instead went Saturday for lunch. This was some of the best food I've had in a while....I had the special pork fajita. I cant wait to go back to Asheville to eat here again. Although this place is probably always busy, trust me its worth the wait. If you're visiting Asheville, this place is a must for lunch or dinner...or both.

Flies, flies, flies

Food was so-so. Fish special was overcooked, other entree ok. Flies everywhere, manager and waitress admitted ""they are always a problem."" Service poor, waitress attitude was flippant. Plunked bottles of soda down without straw or glass, needed 2 requests to get glass. When complained to the manager about poor food and flies in food his attitude was, ""if you don't like it you don't have to come back."" Needless t... view more

Best fusion food ANYWHERE

My boyfriend and i stumbled into salsa on a random trip to asheville becuase it was the only place open and oh what a find! the food was the most amazing blend of mexican, cuban and caribbean. what wonderful and unexpected flavors that were still so familiar and satisfying. needless to say we often make the 3 hour trip to asheville from columbia, sc where we now live to eat at salsa (hate to say it but sometimes mu... view more

Hearty Portions, Terrific Service

What a gem! We visited Salsa on July 3 at the tail-end of the lunch rush, wrote our name on the list, and waited about 15-20 for a table. Despite it being very hectic, the server greeted us with a smile. We ordered the hibiscus tea--this is a must-try! My husband had the organic chicken empanadas and I had the organic chicken enchiladas. Both had avocados, onions, pinto, and black beans, cheese...the works. Bot... view more

This place is just plain delicious. I had the organic chicken empanadas and they were such a medley of delicious flavors that i almost still can't believe it. I would bet that the vast majority of dishes here are superb. \r
Only problem with my visit was the jamaican fritters appetizer...the description sounds amazing and the actual dish failed to deliver. \r
Overall, however, this place is great.
