In 1979 La Salsa first opened as a chain of Mexican "taquerias". These were neighborhood restaurants where locals and gourmets alike, gather to eat the "specialty of the house" - the soft tacos, which are so much a part of the Mexican culture. Today, La Salsa owns and operates an expanding chain of quick, casual restaurants specializing in tacos, burritos and other items served in the style of Mexico.
Why La Salsa?
La Salsa's personalized approach combined with the Company's reputation for serving fresh, healthy food, provides a unique and consistent experience to a broad range of customers in the community. This approach results in significant positive word-of-mouth and repeat business.
La Salsa restaurant designs stimulate all the senses to create contemporary festive-like atmospheres that celebrate the authentic heritage of Mexico. Inspired by the vibrant colors and rich textures of Mexican art and architecture, La Salsa restaurants use a combination of colorful ceramic tile, authentic artwork, and accent lighting. The restaurant design allows for flexibility in the design and construction phases which supports access to multiple retail configurations.
Our Concept Is Simple
We take time-honored recipes and update them to bring the bold tastes and flavors of Mexico to life in a variety of unique dishes. We are constantly updating our menu to capture the spirit of Mexico's varied regions, with dishes inspired by the fresh seafood of Baja, tender steak that transports you to the plains of Pueblo, and marinated chicken breast grilled over an open flame.
La Salsa makes everything FRESH to order, each item at La Salsa begins with the freshest, quality ingredients. La Salsa uses only highest quality proteins, marinated sirloin steak, boneless skinless chicken breast, seasoned fish, and shrimp. The assortment of fresh ingredients, spices and sauces bring out layers of flavors in a variety of classic and contemporary menu items. La Salsa is known for its unique proprietary sauces including creamy Baja sauce, a robust Roja sauce, Ancho-Chile sauce, and its famous tangy Chile-Lime dressing.
The hallmark of the La Salsa restaurants is the display kitchen and a fresh salsa bar, which allows customers to garnish their food with a wide variety of La Salsa's "signature" salsas and trimmings that delivers a full sensory experience. We offer seven varieties of salsa to choose from, fresh cilantro, onions and spicy carrots.
