Ask someone where it is ... and they can point you to Salsa.
People who have visited Asheville only once can tell you how to find your way to what was once just a burrito counter.
Now, over 20 years later, it remains one of the most enduring, immovable icons of Asheville, a celebrated Mexican-Caribbean bistro and multiple award winner.


Both English and Spanish are spoken at Salsas - from the kitchen, to the wait staff and with guests. Inclusion and diversity are core values and frankly part of what makes this place
one of the best in downtown Asheville.

Salsa is the best disruption if you're having a bad day,
and the big happy exhale as part of a perfect one. 

If you are an Asheville local or have visited our city in the mountains, you've heard of this restaurant, and its owner, chef, and inspiration, Hector Diaz, and how both inaugurated the city's journey to becoming a thriving food destination.

Fabulous Food!
You can get anything you imagine here in the way of Carribean eats. We had pork and butternut squash Paquitas and and veggie goat cheese paquitas. We also got Plantain fries. Everything was delicious and the servings were large and reasonably priced. Don’t miss this place! It is worth a wait!
