We came for a late dinner and weren't disappointed. Their Guacomole is great. We had also the salad with chicken and the chicken soup. Both were delicious and good late dinner meals.

Whenever I crave delicious, healthy Mexican food, this is my goto place. Freshly prepared and consistently excellent. Enchiladas Del Sol is my favorite dish. Also, Vegetarian friendly.

The food is generally good here, but not great. The fish tacos are a bit soggy, and the fajitas are not served on the usual sizzling platter (and there are only two small tortillas on the side). The chips and salsa are very good (three...More

I went to Sol for dinner with my daughter while visiting. We wanted a casual but substantial meal -Sol fit the bill well. It is a relatively small restaurant - the decription of "hole-in-the-wall" comes to mind. We were seated quickly on a Thursday night...More
