My favorite thing at El Salto is the simplest - the basket of tortilla chips that are brought to our table within seconds of being seated. If they're salted, I can't tell, and that's what I like best. I can pretty much eat the whole basket without even thinking about it, dipping chips in their simple pureed salsa before cramming them into my eager maw. If I want to make those chips go even faster (or have an excuse to ask for a second basket), I order us an appetizer of queso con chorizo: molten white cheese flavored with bits of chorizo.
Most of the time, however, we simply order one of the many super-cheap combination platters. I usually choose one that has a chile relleno, and sometimes an enchilada or burrito. This one has the former and a tostada.
If you're not into the combo platter thing (all under $8, by the way), there are also fajitas, huevos rancheros, carne asada, and many other dishes to try. We've enjoyed everything we've tried there. It's not fancy, it's not pretty, but it's filling and it's good.
