Chef MZ, Salsa Grill Helping Community During COVID-19

Like all restaurants in LA County, The Salsa Grill is limited to takeout and curbside pick-up options to share its Mexican Cuisine with the community.

Salsa Grill Helping Local Community During COVID-19

With dine-in service unavailable, Chef Marco Zapien and team are keeping it fun and giving back to the community, while offering some of their classic favorites available for takeout, curbside pick-up and delivery.

The most popular special so far is a meal that feeds 4-6 people and includes a salad, choice of entrée (Chile Verde, Chile Colorado, Chicharron, Carnitas or Chicken Fajitas), rice, beans, chips, salsa, Tortillas and soft drinks. Plus, anyone who orders this takeout/pick-up special will get 2 pounds of uncooked rice and beans and two rolls of toilet paper, all for only $39.99.  

Chef Zapien’s creative giving doesn’t stop there. He’s helping out families with kids with $3 individual kids’ pizzas with the purchase of any entrée.

Even more, all entrees come with a free soft drink or coffee.

For over 25 years, The Salsa Grill has been a favorite spot in the Pico Rivera community and beyond and wants to give back.

“We want to give back to the community that’s been supporting us for almost 26 years,” said co-owner and Executive Chef, Zapien.

Zapien will also be filling up “ollas” (pots for soup) with his fresh menudo and pozole, which will be available on weekends starting on Saturday, March 21. Patrons can purchase their favorite by the quart.

The Salsa Grill is located at 6702 Rosemead Blvd in Pico Rivera. Call ahead orders can be made by calling 562.942.7072 and menus can be viewed online at
