HIGH SIDE! 300 W SACKETT AVE. | (719) 539-4742

Mike and Sara's go-to restaurant. We have never had a bad meal here! Expect excellent bar food & interesting specials. High Side has one of the largest riverside patios in town!

TACOS EL TAPATÍO 136 E WEST 2ND | (719) 207-4487

To be honest, every Mexican restaurant in Salida is excellent! But we decided to list Tacos el Tapatío because we love its hole-in-the-wall atmosphere and extremely friendly staff. Mike's favorite: Tacos, especially the Carnitas Sara's favorite: Crispy Chile Rellenos with Rice & Beans

CURRENTS 122 N F STREET | (719) 539-9514

About as fancy as we get! We recommend Currents for great steak, seafood and comfort food. The owner is a lifelong Salida local & is often seen bartending.

BOATHOUSE 228 N F STREET | (719) 539-5004

Boathouse is a Salida classic with a large menu that can please just about anyone. Especially good for large groups, Boathouse has a great location right on the river and a fun bar scene year-round. Mike's favorite: Chicken Tenders Sara's favorite: Ahi Tacos

216 FERRARO'S 216 F STREET | (719) 530-9463
