Salsa a la Salsa is famous for its margaritas. The restaurant"s recipe aims to master a mix of sweet and sour tastes with fresh lime juice and house tequila in sizable 16-ounce glasses. Regulars also like the warm cactus chicken salad, which consists of sautéed cactus leaves tossed with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, chicken, avocado, and queso. The restaurant aims to keep the place as comfortable as possible, which is why they keep the prices competitive ($9 to $13) and build a fire in winter.
