It's small. It's quaint. It's LOVELY. I went early because I heard it was popular. It quickly filled up. The chips and salsa were good. The lunch was fast and the service excellent.

The food is great. Lots of fun, great margaritas. Monday and Thursday specials make it even more affordable.

First solea and a decent one. Had better food before and friendlier service too. Their jumbo margaritas are the main reason people go there.

Can't believe I hadn't reviewed one of my favorite Mexican joints in the Valley. From early on, Solea in Mensha was our place to go after a successful gallery opening for house Margaritas and Queso Fundido. (Freie cheese and chirozo). The quaint atmosphere can feel crowded, but never uncomfortable and the service is always on the mark. Bartenders do an... More

While they have 3 locations, the original in Menasha is still the best. Small and always busy, it's worth the wait as the food, drinks and service are all excellent!

We lived in Menasha for 4 months now and have noticed this place is always busy. So, we decided to give it a try. They served me the best Chimichanga I have ever had. I even tipped the cook. The salsa for the chips is thick and tasty but not burning spicy. They served refried bean dip with the complimentary... More

This little restaurant is always busy. Their food is very good and service is always friendly and quick. Food is plentiful and tasty and their house margarita.. delicious! They have an avocado salad that is very good with chicken or steak if you aren't in the mood for something heavy. Always enjoy going here.

Had a business lunch here. Great food. Salsa had a great flavor. They also provide a bean dip with the chips and salsa. Enjoyed the chicken burrito. Fast and friendly service.

The Solea in Menasha is by far the best Mexican restaurant and the best of the Soleas. It's small and intimate with beautifully painted tables, wonderful service, excellent food and great margaritas. Have been to many Mexican restaurants and some are "canned and artificial". Solea is the real thing and highly recommended.

Solea is one of our favorite restaurants. Their house margaritas are great/unique. My favorite dish is chicken mole of which there's a couple of types. Besides the food and drinks, we love the local feeling of this little hole-in-wall. The decor is not perfect - which is exactly how we like it. The table tops were hand-painted with different images... More
