I love their beef stew, the best that I ever had. Also love their version of eggs benedict! Would go even more often, but the lines can be very long.

This was wonderful. The service was ok but the food made up for any mistakes they made. I would go back anytime.

Love the atmosphere & the menu. Our favorites are the steak sandwich, the pork chop, the whole fish special and the large vegetarian for a hearty & healthy lunch. Take out is also very good & fresh.

Someone told us about this place so we had to check it out. We were very pleased with th food. The cashier was not very knowledgeable about the menu and not really a great seating area. *note: this review is for the Miller ave location, not the San Rafael. Over all, we wish we had one of these in San... More

Brave the lines and enjoy a tasty meal in a Caribbean style environment. Tables are shared, conversations are lively, the atmosphere is fun. The vinegar sauce is quite special.

Well staffed, marvellous aromas, very fresh, ridiculously big serves, happy customers even in the inevitable queues. Try the rotisserie chicken and add a little of the orange looking piquant sauce - wow. Having just returned from Puerto Rico, these guys are the real deal only better.

In need of cozy comfort food with snappy delivery. This is it. Ordered it for four days straight and the menu is expansive enough to accommodate varying tastes for lunch and dinner. Menu also offers daily specials, fresh California salads and ala carte quarts/sides.

Why the lines form outside at Sol Food is beyond me. I've eaten there twice and each time have found the food sorely lacking in taste, quality or presentation. You walk in and LOUD noise assaults you. The music is loud as are the diners who try to talk over the music. After waiting on line outside, you wait on... More
