No thanks, I'll pass. – I've lived in Oxnard for twenty years, and et plenty at Sal's.
Even when he was alive, I was never very impressed with the food in his joint. Having grown up in El Paso, eating there seemed like a very whitewashed affair. Their fajitas were decent, the beans and rice run-of-the-mill, and the chile colorado dry and powdery.
I've heard that since Sal's death it's gone downhill, which only decides me further to avoid the place. I live in west Ventura, and have these wonderful little down-home restaurants which, while not fancy, dish up great food at much better prices.
We Miss Sal-Avoid this place! – This restaurant used to be loved my thousands. And since Big Sal died its gone in the toliet. Yes having a great street appeal and inside apperance is nice but it is not everything. Sal knew good food and he knew that looks didn't make the food taste any better. I would have no problem paying for a good looking place if the food was half decent.
Face it when Sal died the placed died with him... We miss you Sal.
This place used to be great. – I have been going to Sals all my life. And you always knew what you were going to get. Good food at a good price. Sals was never great food, but it was NEVER bad either.
However since Sal passed away and his kids took over they renovated the restraunt, which now looks nicer than it did, but they passed this cost along to the customer. So the prrices are much higher than they used to be. Now Sals kids run this joint and they are greedy. The prices have gone us 70 to 80% in the last 5 or 6 years.
What is worse is that the quality of the food and service has plummeted. In the last 4 times I have been in, I have not recieved what I had ordered. Plus the food was cold. Service was terriable.
I would definatly reccomend avoiding this place.
Great food Good Service – The Food is wonderful and inexpensive. The service is always great and management is always hovering to see that everything is perfect. Traditional mexican food at a good price
Great Food & not expensive – Great Authentic Mexican Food! From the Chips & Salsa, to entrees, Sal's is the Best in Ventura County. The Big Burrito is Huge (about 1 ft long) and loaded w/meat, etc. You can't go wrong w/this place for food and value on a budget.
