Best Salsa in Town

Who has the best salsa in Atlanta? I have my favorite, and I doubt anyone can convince me otherwise.

For me, the best salsa in Atlanta is found at La Fonda Latina. My favorite location is Candler Park, but the salsa is just at good at the other locations. I love it! I could drink it. It is fresh, not too hot, and goes well on everything. Perfect consistency, perfect flavor. A second runner up? Cantina La Casita in East Atlanta. Good spicyness, great texture, hint of pepper, plus they have a salsa verde that rocks!

Who do you think has the best salsa in Atlanta?

On another note: Why don’t either of these restaurants have a visible web presence? All I can find is reviews.

    The Smoked Salsa at Raging Burrito is pretty fine.

    Totally agreed that the food at Nuevo Loredo is awesome, but the salsa is not, in my opinion, on par with La Fonda’s.

    Can’t say that I have had the smoked salsa at Raging burrito. Will have to try that one out.

    Used to be Sundown Cafe but now I have to agree. La Fonda. Particularly Candler Park.

    The best used to be at U.S. Bar Y Grill. Man, do I miss those (Used to be one at Howell Mill & Collier and another on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs).

    Does anyone know where to find salsa like they used to have?

    There is a wonderful, small cuban-style restaurant in the stripmall at Collier and Howell Mill called “Salsa” that features a salsa trio featuring three different peppers and styles. Ask nice and the chef gives you nice, thick, bready corn flats to eat with the different salsas.

    It’s a very family-friendly place so it’s not for those who don’t want to sit near children or babies but it’s great for everyone else.

    I love to get the smoked salsa at Raging burrito. It is amazing. I always get their trio of smoked salsa, great guacamole and queso or the unique pineapple salsa. I love to hang out on Raging Burrito’s huge patio and drink one of the 16 beers and relax and enjoy the good service.(my wife always gets one or twoof the potent raging margaritas) I just found out about this place and I have been a regulat all suummer. I found the website while googling is how I first heard about it. Now I go from my house in vinings to Decatur to get the salsa and tasty burritos. I get the bbq chicken burrito,or cajun killer buttito and my wife gets the thai salad everytime we go. Try it out soon.
