The best burritos around that area – I love their burritos. They are good and cheap compared to the yuppy box up the street, Chipotle's.
My favorite Mexican restaurant!! – I love this place. The location on Duraleigh is convenient to both my home and office and is, without a doubt, the best California-eqsue Mexican food. It's not heavy nor greasy yet extremely flavourful and filling. I can eat here and I don't feel guilty afterwards. And they're not afraid to use Cilantro like a few Mexican restaurants I've visited. They cook your order as your order it; none of that pre-made and heated junk, so it truly is fresh when you get it! The staff is very friendly as well!
AWESOME FOOD - NO CHILDREN, PLEASE – The atmosphere is very bland. In Morrisville there are only two high chairs for our kids and we've had to LEAVE twice because they were taken. The management seems not to care. The food is awesome but come on people - buy more highchairs - people have babies and they need to eat!!!!!!
Great food, great location, great atmosphere – This place has great California Mexican food. I loved the food at the N. Raleigh location, so I was sooooooo excited when they opened the Morrisville location b/c now I can go there for lunch. I like the atmosphere of the Morrisville location, too. I feel like I'm in Redondo Beach every time I go there.
Take the not-so-subtle hint.... they don't want kids in there – Well, I have NO idea if Salsa Fresh in Morrisville is good or not. I used to go to Salsa Fresh in Raleigh all the time when I lived close by. And I was SO excited about a location close to me now!! But when I got there... there were TWO, YES COUNT THEM TWO high chairs in the whole restaurant. So, I had to leave. I can't hold my toddler and my baby and feed them and myself at the same time.
Won't be going back.
Mexican that's good ... and good for you. – In Short
A counter. A TV. A few cute tables. On the surface, Salsa Fresh is no more than one of those cookie-cutter, strip mall takeout joints, but true burrito aficionados know better. Salsa Fresh serves California Mexican cuisine. Offering a thoughtful selection of burritos, quesadillas, nachos, tacos and fajitas. Tortilla chips arrive unsalted, fried fare sizzled in cholesterol-free canola oil, and the guacamole is made from scratch.
Satisfied a Mex-Craving – My visit to this restaurant hit the spot when I was hungry yet craving something lite and fresh. The service was friendly and orderly and the food was reasonably priced. The portion was larger that expected. Loved the self-service salsa bar. Warning: the chip salsa dip is extremely HOT!
It's Fresh – This activates all of your taste buds. I recommend the chicken taquatia's and great nachos. You should also try their newest salsa it has black specs in it and is very different from the norm. We always get takeout from here. Not a place to take your new boy/girl friend on a date but great for a quick bite at lunch. P.S. try the quesdia too.
"Fresh" is a fact! – Fast service and delicious food--Salsa Fresh is not greasy like the usual Mexican/Tex-Mex establishments. Be sure to try the enchilada-style burritos or the quesadillas. Casual, clean, unpretentious, and VERY tasty! Doug, manager of the Strickland Rd. location, is very friendly, helpful, and informative.
Great "Baja" taste ;) – Great "upscale fast food." The food is standard TexMex fare: big burritos, fajitas, quesadillas, and tacos. It's almost identical to the Baja Fresh chain, but has much better salsa.
Plus they'll treat your burritos in two awesome different ways: Enchilada style, with melted cheese and sauce, and Chimichanga style, which is fried with a side of guacamole.
Just remember to bring cash. No credit cards.
