Review of Salsaritas Fresh Cantina in St. Matthews
Salsaritas Fresh Cantina is in St. Matthews in the shopping center with Kroger on Hubbards Lane. They have Kids Eat Free nights on Mondays and Thursdays so I thought I would give it a try! It’s not particularly close for me, but when I’m getting 2 free meals, we are willing to drive a little further and I just combined it with a trip I needed to make to that area.
We went on a Thursday night at around 6:30pm and it was not crowded. There was ample seating and we did not have to wait in line to order. I ordered two kids meals for my children, the cheese quesadillas and the pizza. They came with chips, a drink and a cookie of their choice. Those were free since we were buying a few adult entrees and it’s one free kids meal per adult meal purchased.
I ordered the chicken tacos. You get to choose toppings and I selected a medium salsa, sour cream, cheese and lettuce all on a soft taco. It was a combo deal: 2 tacos with chips and a drink for $5.99! My cousin was with us and she got the taco salad bowl and customized that like I did my tacos and my husband ordered a huge burrito full of chicken, rice, beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream and everything else! I also got some queso to go with my chips.
For three adult meals with drinks, queso and chips, it was about $18. And, that’s with 2 free kids meals so 5 of us ate for $18 – not bad at all. We filled our own drinks and got utensils and lots of napkins and sat in a great family table in the corner of the restaurant that’s a circular booth. My kids really like that table for some reason.
I really liked the chips! They had a seasoning on there that was spicy but had a great lime taste to it, nice and salty. Awesome chips. My tacos were really hearty and tasty and the kids at their quesadillas and pizza (basically and open faced quesadilla) really well. The cookie was a good incentive. My husband and cousin reported that their food was delicious as well and both of them agreed, the chips and queso were fantastic.
Everyone left the meal satisfied and we spent less than $20 to have a fresh meal that wasn’t of the chicken nuggets and fried variety! Tucked away in the shopping center at Hubbards and Westport road, parents need to find this place and try it out for something fast, fresh and inexpensive.
They also have take-home taco meals for 4 for about $20, they cater and if you dine between 2pm and pm daily, you get free chips and queso. And, as I mentioned, buy an adult entree, get a kids meal free on Monday and Thursday nights from 4pm to close. When you are there, pick up a loyalty card and use it to earn free food. They also host parties and fundraising nights. And, yes there is more, on Saturdays if kids have a sporting event and they go to Salsaritas in their uniform, they get a kids meal for just $1!
Salsaritas is a really family-oriented restaurant that I am glad we discovered. Next, we’re trying the take-home-tacos!
