We have had 20 something people helping us move forward both yesterday and today (family, friends, co workers, other people’s friends and family!), putting to shame the demolition and repair teams seen on t.v.
Their efforts remind us again what is important in life, and the love surrounding us keeps stopping us in our tracks. Literally. Sometimes society makes us forget that we actually live in a world filled with amazing human beings, and we cannot thank each one enough times to do a “thank you” justice.
For the record, we had to pull out the ceilings, the carpets, and most of the walls, but luckily the kitchen, the electric, and the bar were spared. Now that demolition is done, a company is coming in to dry out everything with special equipment for a few days, and then we can start to rebuild. Best case scenario is September 6, so we will keep you posted.
The upside is that we will be putting new paint on all the walls (Kathy’s murals will go back up!), new carpeting, and a new ceiling. Gotta look for the upsides!
"Hands down the best Mexican in Rochester!
Plenty of good drink selections on top of their great menu. It may not be the most authentic Mexican you've ever had, but it sure is scrumptious!" - Mike P. 6/29/14
"We were a party of 4 and all but one, experienced Margarita drinkers. We had the Grand Marnier margaritas and they were excellent! We all loved our food and the previous negative notes about the Stuffed Avocado are hard to understand. Two of us had that and we're delighted. Our server was great and all the supporting wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive. We came close to not going here tonight and that would have been a huge mistake!" -Dennis R. 5/24/14
"My husband and I visited your establishment Friday evening. It was the second time for me, but the first for him. We had a wonderful time due to the incredible food and fantastic service...we live roughly 40 minutes away but it is truly worth the ride !!
He is already asking about going again :-)" -Christine H. 6/30/14
"My wife Susan and I had lunch at Salena's today. Our server was one of the best we have ever dealt with. She was funny, attentive, and made the entire experience very enjoyable, and downright fun. I imagine you have listen to enough negative things, so we hope this is a welcome change for you." -Jim V. 6/14/14
"Our server was great!!!! Prompt, an pleasant! Love that you have a lunch selection menu. And the service is fast enough that we can fit it into out work schedules with ease. Keep it up and we will certainly be back!!! Did I mention the food was fantastic?.....But that's just a given." -Kimberly C. 7/9/14
"Myself and 3 friends visited on Cinco De Mayo this year. We knew it would be busy and it was but our wait was only 35 minutes. Our server was very friendly, still received our food and drinks timely and everything tasted great. I have been coming to Salena's for many years now and will continue making it one of my favorite Mexican food spots." -Tania B. 5/9/14
"We had a lovely dinner there tonight and want to thank waitress #280 (Kathryn) for he good care.
