  1. Boca Chica and their Taco House have excellent house made salsa. Pineda also has some good salsa.

    1. I just bought some at El Burrito Mercado. They have a fresh salsa bar.

      1. Agreed El Burrito Mercado. EVERYTHING at their little deli counter rocks. As well as their prepared for takeout, and their pre-made meats, beans and rice by the pound. I also buy fajita mix from them. Fast and cheap. I also really like Pepitos. Very heavy on the garlic. Their take out on 46th has a salsa bar. As far as Pico del Gallo - haven't found a decent one that beats my homemade. A shame too, I HATE making it. Chop, chop.

        1. Check out the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta in the St Paul this weekend. There's a salsa competition :
