    The best Mexican restaurant in Downtown Joliet! You might know chips and salsa as a snack you enjoy while watching TV with friends. Salsa, meaning “sauce” in Spanish, plays a bigger part in Mexican cuisine than just a dip. Not every salsa is spicy. They help enhance the flavors of the meat in tacos. That’s why no taco is complete without a little salsa on top. Stop in and try our authentic homemade salsas!
