Salsitas Mexican, in Phoeniz AZ and surrounding Wed, 11/15/06 11:21 AM (permalink)
Has anyone eaten at this eatery, it's a pretty grungy place, but you know a mexican place is awesome when all the menus are completely in spanish (no english), there are no white folks there, only mexicans. when they take your order, they start cutting up the ingredients, meaning, they won't slice up a buncha tomatoes in the morning, they go thru them one by one as they need them. This includes any meat they will use, they will start to cook it when you order, so everything is sooooo juicy and fresh! Yup, it is called Salsitas, they won't have a website, but I took a pic of a girl with all their addresses on it!

    The picture wasn't clear enough on my computer to read the addresses, and I have neve heard of the place in Phoenix. I am willing to do a little research, however! I'll keep you posted.

        We have recently had a few Salsarita's Cantinas move into Pittsburgh. When I ate there the other day, I asked if it was a chain and they said yes. Could these places be the same?

            No white folks? Only Mexicans? And do you find that offputting?

              Hello All,
              Sounds like an adventure. We have a few places like
              that in Harrisonburg, Va.. I went to one locally and had
              the best food and an enjoyable talk with the waiter.
              Sometimes we need an adventure to discover grow and
              also realize how small the world is. I loved the food
              and found my waiter and I were pretty much the same, except
              he had a harder time because of prejudice.
              By the way, he was a legal immigrant.
              But the food...it was great.
              It was strange going into this restaurant, a bit scary.
              I guess I feared being the immigrant.
              Take Care,
              Fieldthistle

                A Salsarita's opened up near me recently, but I haven't had a chance to go there. I was just looking at their website and it looks interesting.

                  If you are familiar with Moe's Southwest Grill, Salsarita's seems to have a similar concept. Nothing special, but not bad for a quick lunch.

                    Thanks for the information. I'm afraid I've never heard of Moe's Southwest Grill, though. But I'm certainly willing to give this new place a try. There's a Chipotle Grill right around the corner from this new Salsarita's that I have been to.

                      Michael
                      Moe's S W Grill is a chain operation like many of the new sub chains and other 'semi-fast food'. Several have opened in the Louisville area recently. I think the quality is only fair, and the value is NIL. $7 for a rice&bean-filled beef Burrito is a ripoff to me. We will not go back after trying one not long ago. They seem to pride themselves on the cheerleader service style, lots of yelling of greetings and 'banter with customers' while waiting in line for your order......instead of the food quality and value. Lots of Volvos and Minivans parked there...and not a Lopez or a 'low-rider' anywhere in sight. If anyone spoke Spanish it was as the result of H S Spanish-midwestern version!!

                        Thanks Al. I'll stay away if they ever open one around here.

                          I believe that this restaurant and Salsarita's are totally different. Salsarita's just opened two places in Knoxville and they are a chain. the place described on this thread does not sound like a huge chain.
