City chain’s salsa bar something to behold
Everything good about the newest Salsa Grille on YMCA Park Drive was also everything that was bad about it.
Owners Chris and Jerry Rongos got the look right on this Salsa Grille Northeast for sure. It is clean, modern and streamlined so the lunch crowd gets in, orders and gets to eating quickly.
It is a far cry from the taco bar at George’s International Market on Broadway where the brothers’ chain has its roots.
The menu has the same fresh, tasty ingredients that made the old taco bar a hit and what led to the growth of the brand.
But being so much like the bigger chains also means some of the things that made the old taco counter : and the folks working it : so great are missing in this new very corporate setting.
