Salsa Grill is the place to enjoy Spanish, Latin American, or good ol' American food in Woodlawn, right near all that Social Security office stuff. It's not fast-food cheap, but the portions are huge and the quality is special dining level. Owner Jay Angle scours local farmers' auctions, small family farms, and even his own garden for the finest produce and meats.

The food is absolutely the best! Beautiful artwork that is for sale and Jay, the owner, is great! He uses the freshest ingredients and hand picks them himself. Last time I went I got a dish with filet mignon that was spot on perfect and so tender you didn’t even need a knife! We had a party of 5 and the bill was $130–definitely a good deal. No alcohol but you can bring in whatever you want to drink and they will accommodate you. I have always been pleased with the food and the portions are huge! My meal took 3 plates! You cannot go wrong eating here.

We have been coming to Salsa Grill for years and just love it. The food is always outstanding and the portion sizes are very large. When we bring new people there, they always like it. Jay, the owner is wonderful and visits every table when he is in. Besides the quality and variety of food, we especially like that the restaurant is BYOB!

One could see how this restaurant could be overlooked in the strip shopping center, but I am so glad a friend suggested it. I was there on a week day with coworkers for a casual lunch. The menu had something for everyone, with great selections at different price points. The service was outstanding. Our server was attentive without being annoying, and our meals came out together in a timely manner. The food was delicious and the portions generous. All in all, I can't think of a thing to complain about. If you're in the neighborhood, I definitely recommend you drop in.

Salsa Grille has to be one of the best restaurants in the state. The owners take pride in their meals. The ceasar salad is the greatest start to a dining experience. The strip steak was fork tender, and the arroz con pollo was soooo good. but save room for dessert. between the strawberry shortcake and the crème brulle it is impossible to choose which is best. Do not be deceived by the front door. You cannot judge a book by it's cover. By this I mean you have no idea how first class the food is until it makes it way to your tongue. Hats off to Carlos and Jay.

Never a bad meal at Salsa Grill. We've been regulars for over 20 years and it's where our family likes celebrating happy events. The place ain't fancy, but oh, the food... Best cream of crab soup in Maryland and probably the planet! We had variations on paella, Caesar salad, crab cakes, and fish. I always get the tapas sampler as my meal and it's good for two more days of leftovers. You will never leave Salsa Grill empty-handed. The portions are huge, so don't let the prices scare you. Jay and team, another WOW experience!

It's hard to find a restaurant that can accommodate a large group, especially on a Monday (so many restaurants are closed). Salsa Grill never disappoints. We've been eating there since Jay started it up over 20 years ago. We joke that our kids grew up there! Jay has graciously welcomed our daughter and her boyfriend as regulars now too. Our meals were at the usual level of excellence. The only negative was a lack of attention to things like empty water glasses. But that's not enough to keep us away in the future!

The food was good. The service was ok not fantastic but not great; appropriate for the location. There weee two minor issues that occurred that annoyed the table of 7. First, we were only given one bowl of chips and salsa for 7 people which was annoying because the rule is one bowl per table regardless of the number of people. Second, there were three plates of food that sat under the heat lamp for upwards of 10 minutes while the remaining items were made. That would not been a huge deal if we had not been sat in front of the kitchen.

What a fantastic evening we had at the Salsa Grill. Jay, the owner, and his staff warmly welcomed us. We were a party of 12. They graciously started us off with several Tortilla baskets with Salsa – fresh, crisp tortilla with a delicious salsa. Carlo, our main server, and his staff were amazing – they managed to keep all of our dinner orders straight. We enjoyed the following: Cream of Crab soup (beyond decadent – expensive but worth it), Carne Asada, Chicken Curry Wrap, Chicken Caesar Wrap, Grilled Salmon, Gulf Fried Shrimp Platter, 3 Paellas, Beef and Vegetable Empanadas, Roasted Chicken, Chicken Parmesan pasta, and Escabeche de Corvina. We really had an around the world tasting of foods. Everyone was thrilled and raved about their dinners. What was really nice was that the restaurant was quiet, and we could carry on conversations. Jay ended our evening with something sweet – a Baklava – just perfect. BYOB with no corkage fee is always a plus for our group. Thank you so much for a great dining experience. We definitely will be back.

We met a friend for dinner at the Salsa Grill. Jay and Carlo came thru as always. They are so welcoming. We really appreciate a restaurant that is quiet enough to have good conversation. We had to have the Cream of Crab soup – pricey, but so worth it – they only use jumbo lump crab – make sure to bring some sherry with you – it finishes the soup perfectly. My husband had the Shrimp and Scallop Alfredo with penne pasta – a scrumptious dish. I enjoyed the Chicken curry wrap filled with chicken, Spanish rice, stuffed potatoes, olives and eggs – an enormous wrap. Our friend went for the Cheesesteak sub with onion rings. The one thing you can say about the Salsa Grill is that their portions are very generous, which means you have leftovers for the next day. Carlo and the rest of the staff took excellent care of us – so attentive. I was amazed at one of the specials that the lady at the next table ordered – a fried hard crab – it was so big – looked to be lightly battered with a crab cake inside. I wondered how you ate it; she explained that you eat just like a regular hard crab. She said it was delicious.

This place has great food. Expect to leave very full. It used to be a diner kind of ambiance, but it was rehabbed and is much more pleasant. It isn't really right for a date. The shopping center it is in is kind of sketchy. It is still worth the trouble. The salmon is grilled in a pizza oven, and it is always wonderful. The shrimp all covered in cheese is excellent.
