The La Salsa concept was born during a pioneering road trip to Mexico in the late 1970s, when the company's founding fathers were lured south by pristine beaches and the promise of adventure. But it was the food that truly defined their experience, opening their eyes to the bold tastes and flavors of Mexico. Inspired by their travels, they opened the first La Salsa in 1979, which would grow into a thriving nationwide collection of more than 100 restaurants. The concept was simple: combine the flavors and recipes of Mexico with the freshest ingredients available. This philosophy remains in place today, and La Salsa is constantly updating its menu to reflect the spirit of Mexico's many culinary influences, with dishes inspired by the seafood of Baja, slow-roasted pork carnitas from Guadalajara, creamy beans from Chihuahua and bright sauces from Monterrey.
