Over this past weekend JP and I had the opportunity to have some much needed time away. We felt it was a good time to go and try out some food spots we’ve been meaning to get to in the past few months. On the agenda, Salsarita’s Cantina!
Unfortunately I left the camera in the car, so we didn’t get any shots of our meal. JP and I, always love a good dose of Mexican cuisine. This place has come highly recommended by a few of our friends. We were out and about cruising the town, and decided to stop in. Before we arrived, JP checked with a friend for some suggestions on what we should order. We were told the Beef Burritos and Taco Salad were good choices.
Salsarita’s is located at 5135 Sunset Blvd Suite H Lexington, SC 29072. Right in the shopping plaza were Target is. Walking into Salsarita’s isn’t like the hip and ultra modern Chipotle. It has a more rustic appeal to it. The place was packed, but there was plenty of seating. Glancing over the menu, they offer Tacos, Taco Salads, Burritos, Quesadillas, Nachos, Salads, Enchiladas, and even pizzas! We were told for the burritos we could just pick a tortilla size and then start choosing our ingredients. There are two sizes for the burrito regular and large. Regular is a normal sized burrito and large is just ridiculous! LOL We chose the regular because we wanted dessert afterward. We chose the shredded beef burrito. We filled our burritos with shredded beef,rice, black beans, hot salsa, cheese, flavored sour cream (not sure what is was flavored with), and gauc. We also ordered a side of chips and warm queso. The price was pretty reasonable with the addition of drinks. Speaking of drinks, they also offer Margaritas and Non-Alcoholic Margaritas.
Okay so here is the moment of truth. We got our goods, it’s tasting time! The chips and queso were pretty tasty. Tasted like most of the chips and queso we’ve had at other places. So moving on to the burrito. My first bite seemed okay. I thought it tasted pretty good. I think JP felt otherwise about his. As I got deeper into mine, I noticed that the beef was extremely salty. JP and I both agreed it was very salty! We both had to throw on extra dashes of hot sauce to make it through. LOL If it weren’t for the over saltiness I would have given the burrito a decent rating. Because it was so salty I can only give it a 5.5. JP gave it a flat 5.0. Overall the meal was just okay for us. I think we need to come again and try something else before we can really say we either love or hate the place. I will say we did like it better than Moe’s!
