The patio is a lovely place to have Mexican food in the summer. Prices continue to increase for food that is good but not extraordinary. Have been coming here for years and do enjoy the salsa. Have always liked the Combination plates and it is...More

First a fair warning, plan on having a designated driver if you have more that two of their margaritas. They add something that just makes the delicious! We have dined here many times over the years and have never been let down. In the summer...More

Good food but over stuffed with chips and salsa. Drink selection of Scotch was limited and the virgin mojitos were quite tasteless - not enough mint.

I had to make a 'once a week' rule with my husband. He would want to go a couple nights a week otherwise! He's a huge fan of the chicken fajitas, and I'm in love with their mole sauce. I recommend not driving if you...More

I was in the mood for a sit down dinner, and I wanted Mexican. This restaurant has good Margaritas and I enjoyed the enchiladas. The service was good. Typical Tex-Mex.

Sol Azteca has been among my favorite restaurants of any type, for more than 25 years. The food is top-notch, and the wait staff are happy to accommodate my picky ordering. They have many delicious offerings, including several non-spicy options, in case someone in your...More

A warm summer evening is the best time to visit Sol Azteca. The outdoor patio is colorful, and a great place to enjoy fajitas or enchiladas. Nothing too fancy here.

Second time we've been here and wasn't disappointed. Authentic, fresh ingredients, huge servings and great service. Everything came out piping hot and was delicious. Guacamole is AWESOME! A bit pricey for our normal dinner budget but location dictates price. Was well worth it!

Sol Azteca is cozy and inviting inside in the colder months, and a real oasis (hidden in an alley) for dining al fresco in the warmer months. This is not a fancy place, and the menu is standard and never changes, but it is consistent....More

Great place, cozy. The food is very good and accurate. Prices are ok. I recommend the beef and the guacamole. Margaritas, as well!

Description
Tucked in a corner alleyway of Newton Center, Cafe Sol Azteca is a cozy and enchanting authentic Mexican mainstay for over 20 years. Featuring cuisine from the Mexico's capital you'll be won over by their cilantro and mole sauces that will make you think you just stepped back into the old country. A full bar features the classic requests of sangria, margaritas, and cervezas while adding plenty more like Mezcal drinks and their "to die for" Mango Mojitos. Nightly chef specials along with an extensive traditional and specialty menu leave your taste buds with plenty to experience. Catch them in the warm weather and join them on their outdoor patio featured on local television programs as the place to be.
