Good food but service with a blah!.
The salsa is always delicious and the chips fresh. Their carnitas are to die for. The beans and rice are cooked and seasoned to perfection. They have a signature drink called el vampiro absolutely fabulous. Their margaritas are better than el caminos and the pitchers with top shelf liquor are considerably cheaper. Now if they could only teach a few particular waiters manners it would be five star for sure. ( we get him at least every other time we go which is weekly but we continue to go because the food is so good lol)
Authentic Mexican food.
The food was authentic Mexican! Cosy atmosphere and quick, friendly service. They have many, many selections to chose from on the menu and immediate service. Almost as soon as you get seated they bring an abundance of home made chips and salsa. It's really difficult to not make your meal on those alone! Your meal arrives way before you get to eat all the chips and salsa you can hold! I think this is Toledo/ Maumee's best kept secret! It's now my favorite place!
Cielo on Earth.
Disclaimer: From what I am about to write, you might think I am waxing overzealous, but I swear, I mean what I say in all seriousness. El Salto is the finest Mexican dining experience this side of the Rio Grande. They serve a fine comida in a warm, no-frills atmosphere, and they even play Jeopardy with closed-captioning if you're there at 7:30. I like to sit in Pedro's section, but I know for a fact that the entire wait staff is uber-charming. Go, but don't tell your friends. I don't want it to become too trendy.
El Salto- muy bien!.
This is a very laid-back restaraunt. The atmosphere is modest and pleasant. El Salto has without a doubt the most authentic Mexican food in the greater Toledo area. The staff speaks slighltly broken english, but are surprisingly eager to serve you. The prices are as reasonable as anywhere and I recomend that if you want authentic Mexican food, try El Salto. Note: "el salto" translates as "the jump." Enjoy!
