I love Mexican food. Its not hard to get me excited about a new Mexican restaurant in Miami. However, its also not that hard for me to end up disappointed. But you know what Mexican restaurant I tried recently that didn't disappoint me? Salsa Fiesta. It's. So. Good.
Its right off of Biscayne Blvd on 29th Street. I've already gone there like 5 times. I love their Nachos Fiesta with beef. Their food is highly satisfying.
One of my favorite parts of the experience: You can start munching right away while you're still looking over the menu. They have a platter of chips and the Hot Tamale dip at the counter between the cash registers. What I do is serve myself my own little container of their red salsa at the little serving station right next to the cash register and pick at the chips on the counter. I do love that salsa. I want it right now.
Second favorite part of the experience: The margaritas. SO GOOD. I love margaritas and I've actually never been one to stray from the original margarita on the rocks with plenty of salt...but the first time that I went to Salsa Fiesta, I ordered my regular Margarita and they showed up at my table with a strawberry margarita. What a pleasant mistake. I order it every time that I go now. Still with plenty of salt...and its heavenly.
Third favorite part of the experience: You order at the counter when you get there and then wait for your food at your table. Why doesn't every restaurant make you pay before you eat? Its so great to just get up and leave once your done with your food.
My one complaint about Salsa Fiesta? Their margaritas are like $13. Come on now, people. Its not like we're at a club on South Beach. Thats a ridiculous price for a drink at a little restaurant on Biscayne Blvd. Don't believe the price on the menu. I think thats only referring to happy hour specials. End result is I normally can't order more than 1 margarita with my food because I don't want to be homeless next month.
