Tucson has to be one of a very few places where when you ask for the best salsa in town, you get 478 nominations for 67 different restaurants. And that doesn’t even include the multiple nominations for “my mom’s salsa.”
Guadalajara Grill was a clear favorite, with 84 total votes — it takes our No. 1 seed in the Salsa Madness bracket. The salsa at Guadalajara Original Grill on East Prince Road, and Guadalajara Fiesta Grill on North Kolb Road, was a clear favorite among commenters.
El Molinito, with locations on East 22nd Street, West Ina Road, North Pantano Road and one to open soon in Oro Valley, takes the No. 2 seed.
Rosa’s Mexican Food on East Fort Lowell Road, and Mi Nidito on South Fourth Avenue in South Tucson, round out the top four.
