The other day I was running some errands on Rochester Road up in Troy and came across Salsarita's - a Mexican Cantina restaurant that I hadn't seen before. I needed to grab some lunch so I decided to check it out.

It had a cute decor with Mexican tile and colorful murals. It was similar to a Baja Fresh, where you order your food at the counter. I ordered a barbeque chicken pizza. Chips and salsa were separate (no salsa bar), so I got a combo that included them and a drink.

The moment I saw them start to make the pizza, I knew I wouldn't love it. They put the toppings on a very thin tortilla which had been already baked and was brown. The toppings were great, but I just didn't like the crust. The salsa was good with fresh cilantro (but I like Baja Fresh's salsa better). The chips were ok - very thin, a bit oily, and I thought they needed more salt. So my opinion was that it was ok. However, I could see that they were grilling the chicken behind the counter and it looked really good. I'd be willing to try it again and order something else - they had lots of other options. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing.

It looks like Salsarita's is a franchise and there are other locations in Ann Arbor and Brighton with more coming in the Detroit metro area.
