The salsa is prepared table-side, but that's just half the story: chunky but evenly spread, Guadalajara's salsa gets a spiciness from jalapenos and chile de arbol that's fused into the mix.
1750 E. Fort Lowell RoadTucson, AZ 85719
More often than not, the salsa that's given to you practically before you sit down is served with piping-hot chips. It's a one-two punch, those warm chips cradling the garlic-y, thick-but-not-too-chunky, peppery-but-not-too-hot salsa.

It's a good thing the El Indio menu is huge, because that tomato-y salsa tastes good on everything from the cactus-and-egg burro to the potato tacos.
1749 N. Oracle RoadTucson, AZ 85705
While salsa at the upscale celebration restaurant is definitely smoother than some, it’s the smokiness that makes it special. Finely blended, it utilizes a cadre of roasted tomatoes and dark peppers.
110 E. Pennington St.Tucson, AZ 85701
Can we use the word sensuous to describe a salsa? Because, somehow, shoveling the mild, oh-so-tomato-y Poca Cosa salsa in on chip after chip just feels so right.
