Located in a strip mall in Creve Coeur, La Salsa, which originated in the Los Angeles area in 1979, serves fast-casual Mexican food. The menu features the staples - tacos, burritos and quesadillas. Specialties include the California burrito - beans, avocado, jack and cheddar cheeses, lettuce, rice and salsa - and the fire-roasted bowl - chicken, zucchini, corn, broccoli, carrots, beans, rice, cheese, poblano crema and cilantro. Diners order at the counter and then choose a seat in the dining room, patio, or belly up to the bar for a margarita or beer. La Salsa also features a salsa bar with mild, spicy, creamy, and sweeter options.
