Salsa at Lone Star Texas Grill
Where to get Salsa


2007 Oct 1
I think it's within the past few months that they've changed their salsa. It's still nice and fresh, but I preferred the older version. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I thought it tasted a bit sweeter than before.

Am I crazy or have they changed their salsa recipe in the last few years? Still a great salsa but I find it has a different kick to it now. I can't quite figure it out but I think it used to have more cilantro.

Perfect salsa! If you are looking for something similar at home try Kickin Salsa.

"The one that all others are compared to" -- yes. And a total thumbs-up on the chips, too.

Lone Star's pico de gallo is the best salsa in town -- the one that all others are compared to. Fresh, zesty, with just a hint of jalapeno heat.

I think there needs to be a differentiation between fresh and jarred salsa here. I haven't had the fresh salsa, only having noticed it recently, but I have had the jarred one and did not like it.

I too like this salsa. When its at its freshest it is truly awesome.

But then I prefer freshly made salsa over canned. Sig Oth likes it cooked and in a jar. S'ok, makes more for me!

Oh, okay. I just picked some up, and said "Mmm -- Lone Star-y."

Indeed. Very tasty.

The house brand tortilla chips are a thumbs-up, too.

Farm Boy makes a "Fresh Salsa" that is the closest thing to Lone Star's pico de gallo that you'll find. The quality is highly variable depending on tomato availability -- sometimes it's so bad that you don't want to eat it, but other times it's almost like Lone Star.

I am big into the "Garden Fresh Gourmet" salsa these days. The "Jack's Special" variety is excellent.

Ditto on their tortilla chips and guacamole.

I love Kickin Salsa as well, but have had bad experiences as well. When purchased from the Vanier Loblaws, I've at least TWICE purchased bad, or almost bad salsa of this brand. Both times the due date was many days away. The one time, it just smelled downright rotten when I opened the container. I 'figure' it wasn't likely the producer's fault, but more likely Loblaws left it on a palette in an unrefrigerated area for a day or two, but either way.. not an experience I'd like to repeat.

Great minds think alike. ;) I've actually wanted to comment about Kickin Salsa for a while now but didn't know where to put it. I was introduced to it years ago by the owner of the company who was giving out samples at a grocery store. She makes it locally and from scratch (at least at the time). I've been hooked ever since.

Just a note it only lasts around a week since it contains no preservatives but it should be no problem finishing it off in time. ;)

Loblaw's sells a locally prepared salsa called Kickin' Salsa which can be found in the produce section with the pre-cut fruits/veggies. Very strong onion/garlic flavour with just the right amount of cilantro. It's a little thicker than Farm Boy's version and costs ~$5 for a 500ml tub.

Kickin Salsa is amazing! Very similar to Lone Star's salsa. It's sold next to the pre-packaged veggie trays and such (usually at the front of the store).
