Salsa a la Salsa Uptown is a casual restaurant that specializes in both traditional and contemporary Mexican cuisines. It is also popular for its exotic range of margaritas. The interior of the restaurant features several traditional Mexican art pieces and handcrafted accessories. The restaurant's atmosphere is warm and family-friendly. Outdoor seating is also available at Salsa a la Salsa.

Begin the meal with burritos available with several filler options including shredded beef, grilled steak, chicken, chorizo, fish and fresh vegetables. Try a taco dish served with Spanish rice and choice of beans. Next, enjoy a chimichanga. This is a deep fried burrito filled with beans, rice, corn salsa, onions, ranchero sauce and topped with melted cheese. For the main course, pick from options like Chile Relleno topped with ranchero sauce and salmon tatemado with tomatillo sauce. The enchilada is also a recommended dish at Salsa a la Salsa.

Good service, food, and drinks. For some reason, there was hardly anyone there on a Saturday night. It seems like a pretty good place to go get some food and drinks. It's a little expensive so maybe that is what's keeping people away.

Excellent margaritas, on a pleasant patio and very tasty food. Some of the best Mexican food in Minneapolis.

I have my 30th Birthday Dinner there and they were so accommodating and everyone that worked there was extremely nice and made the party that much better! They were there whenever we needed them! I had about 20 people there and we all fit no problem! We didn't feel crowded at all! I can't wait to go there again! I am so appreciative of them and it was the best birthday thus far!

I was coming from Florida to spend time with my boyfriend & he mentioned this restaurant, I right took his word & decided to come with him to enjoy some delicious food . The food there is amazing , the portion provided was perfect & the setting of the area was relaxing and very artsy in my opinion . Customer service was amazing , had multiple different associates coming to our table to refil our drinks , clean up empty plates , bring us nachos & more . Very respectful & helpful with ordering your food & describing the menu for someone's who unsure .

I've been here a few times, always enjoyed whatever I've ordered. My favorite is the chimichanga. The drinks are all fabulous.

This is one of my new favorites for a really good margarita, good food and a place in Uptown where it's easy to park. The service has been inconsistent - sometimes very good and sometimes inattentive. There is a large outdoor dining area which is great. The food is good - but the real draw for me - is the margarita. I will go anywhere for a fresh, simply made margarita with great tequila. So..... I'll be back!

I went with four other friends to Salsa a la Salsa on Cinco de Mayo. We had a reservation but still waited upwards of 20 minutes to be seated. We were all extremely hungry, so we ordered food and drinks as soon as our server came to our table (which was probably 10 minutes after we actually got seated). The server returned a total of two times to get us more rounds. Over an hour and a half passed and we still didn't have our food. When our server finally came back, we asked about how much longer our food would be, to which he replied that he forgot to put it in. He didn't even apologize. So we went to Uptown specifically to eat at this restaurant and didn't get any food. It was overall a poor experience just because we were so hungry when we came and we left just as hungry. The drinks were good though.
