This rather shabby Mexican restaurant nevertheless serves very good food. We ordered Full Meal burrito de carnitas and enchiladas suizas. Both were excellent -- although the burrito arrived as a carne asada instead of carnitas without warning or clearing it with the diner. This was the only ding on the experience. The refried beans are the tastiest ever along with... More

One of the friendliest restaurants in town. Their menu consists of many pages of great food. The prices are reasonable, and there's outdoor dining when the weather is nice.

Came here for lunch with my family. It is about what we expected from the random pick as we were driving: not so great but not terrible either. The food came in big portions but wasn't anything to write home about. The ground beef in one of my enchiladas didn't taste great (a little thin for my taste, beef seemed... More

The menu is what is usually offered in Mexican restaurants. The service is good and servers are quite friendly. They offer a few unusual alcohol drinks. The food quality is good. Nothing outstanding about this place but it is a pleasant place to dine.

outside looks a little run down, inside good food, friendly service. Stopped by here after mountain biking because it was the first mexican place we saw. Happily it exceeded our expectation. The water even brought our kids a free dessert afterwards.

The food was just alright, the service was just alright, the chips were served cold...who has ever had cold chips at a Mexican Restaurant...not me...well now I have. This restaurant is kind of run down and could use a remodel. I would take a pass and try another restaurant.

I was seeking a dining spot within walking distance of the Guest House where I was lodged for the night. I prefer walking to avoid driving as I enjoy drinking more than driving. Sol de México filled the bill as they served me an excelente Margarita & my guacamole and chiles rellenos accompanied by a chilled Pacifico were up to... More

So I go to this place often. I love it! They have good service and great food. The chimichangas are perfect the cheese enchiladas are so cheesy and filling and the pollo a la creme is to die for! I've come to know that this is a family run business. They are very kind and always welcome me with a... More

I went here because I had a coupon but even savings won't convince me to return! The flavor was awful. My mother-in-law ordered a dish and got something completely different which she refused to eat. There was also a bad smell which made me loss my appetite. For good Mexican check out El Rinconcito or Jalapenos.

If you've ever been south of the border, this place is pretty much it. Quite a variety of dishes, a few somewhat Americanized, but most pretty authentic for what you'd pick up in Mexico. Good side dishes, great meal pricing, and all of the traditional fare, tacos, taquitos, enchiladas, are quite good. They have a full bar by the parking... More
