El Sol Mexican Restaurant
ExcelledThe food was great but what made the place special was the waiter. Top notch guy who paid attention and anticipated our needs without swarming5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnough optionsI enjoyed the broad but not overwhelming menu and enjoyed our meals. Chips and salsa were good--bringing hot sauce to add to the excellent salsa would have been a nice addition. I had never had fish tacos that I liked, so tried the taco option where I could pick 3 different tacos--one was fried fish taco, one a beef taco and one salmon. They were each very good and the variety made it even better. I had the frozen house margarita (least expensive) with salt and it was very good. The service was good but it was Cinco de Mayo so a little busy. Prior visits the service was even better. Servers always very polite and engaging--a nice addition.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMagainate there for the umpteenth time and enjoyed the food, drinks, desserts and service as always.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Mexican CuisineThis restaurant is outstanding! The food is excellent and the service is prompt. We usually order the Enchiladas Mexicana and get one of each (beef, chicken, & cheese). It's delicious every time. They offer many good specials, as well - and a lot of fish dishes. If you are looking for real Mexican food (and not Taco Bell), this is the place. Not expensive, either.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff made the kids feelThe staff made the kids feel special.Josue was great!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways FunAs always, a fun night at El Sol. Staff responded perfectly to specific seating request provided through Open Table. We wanted romance and a two hour experience and we got it! Menu is the most fun in town -- full of experiments -- shared appetizers and meals for two. Definitely my place to eat with a date whenever there is a downtown event.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visit your restaurant aboutWe visit your restaurant about every 3 months or so. And we just love it there the everyone is very nice and the food is fantastic! We will continue to come as often as we can. I grew up with Mexican food and this is very close to my moms cooking.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at El Sol even though we've heard about it for years. The service was great and the menu was definitely several steps above the typical Mexican restaurant fare. They offer an extensive and unique cocktail list. All the drinks our group had were very good.
The menus was also unique and offered something for everyone. The fish tacos were wonderful.
We did not have dessert but they sounded delicious!
We definitely plan to go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI checked off Romantic-- butI checked off Romantic-- but wanted to comment on that. The decor & ambiance was condusive to a romantic atmosphere, however, we were there on a Friday night and it was very crowded, and changed the atmosphere somewhat. Not in a bad way - a more "energetic, fun" way! Would certainly recommend El Sol, and will certainly return!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome girls night out!Server was knowledgeable and fun! She was accommodating too.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMquaint and delectablebest jalapeno margarita ever! food was delicious, too.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find close to train stationThe reason I picked El Sol was for its proximity to the train station, but the reason I will return, is because of the quality. Service was prompt and attentive. The food was tasty and fresh. While we read the extensive menu, my husband and I enjoyed the house margaritas, which are generous and potent, and the guacamole, which was very fresh and served with delicious corn chips and salsa.
I had the chicken mole, which was very good. I am not a fan of spicy food, so this dish was great. My husband enjoyed his tres amigos, and we both loved the mango cake for dessert. The bar is partitioned off from the dining area, but the noise from there carries, so don't expect a quiet evening if you go. We will go again, I want to try more menu items.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was plentiful and delicious.Food was plentiful and delicious. Service outstanding. A great place for a business lunch.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
