Not as good as the last time.....
The food was good, as usual. However, the service was slow and not particularly attentive, which detracted from the overall experience. And it took the waiter forever to take the check.

Sol Azteca has been great
Sol Azteca has been great forever! Not just the standard Mexican food but some good specials and regional dishes. Love the cabbage salad! Always delicious salsa! Lots of fresh cilantro! Even good shrimp, a vanishing breed in this part of the world!Just wish other restaurants knew how they keep up the quality, friendliness, ambiance... year in and year out... wish we went there more often!

Cinco de Mayo LOVE
This place did NOT need a gimmick (hats or beads) to get people in the door - it just needed its lovely menu. All of the food was amazing. I am from southern california and I have an "issue" with new england mexican food BUT Sol Azteca hit the spot.
You will enjoy this.
A note though - the noise level here can get beyond boisterous. (you've been warned)

My family and I have been going to Sol Azteca for many years. We can honestly say that this place is like wine - it gets better with age. Sol Azteca offers authentic Mexican food - or as authentic as one can get in Boston - and the service is great. Their drinks are good and they offer many delicious vegetarian dishes, as well. This place has a little bit of everything for everyone.

Reasonably priced authentic
Reasonably priced authentic Mexican fare. Get the specialty margaritas, they are well worth the slight up charge.

Incredible authentic Mexican cuisin
Truly authentic Mexican cuisine! This mainstay has been around since I went to college in the 80's. It has to be great to survive this longevity. The food is well-prepared, fresh and very tasty. The drinks are also well-made. The service is prompt and friendly. We drive all the way from Rhode Island to eat here because of the food!

Great Mexican Food!
The food here is really delicious- Mexican food cranked up a notch! And the portions are HUGE! Don't make the mistake of asking or more complimentary chips!

Outstanding, attentive wait
Outstanding, attentive wait staff. The food was extremely fresh. The delicious sauce does not mask anything.Generous portions,too

We were a group of 6 friends and all of us except one are Veggie. We were able to get Veggie options but the only problem was whichever dishes had rice those had to be substituted with veggies and beans as the Rice had chicken broth. They did mention that in the menu and so we avoided it which was good on their part.
Salsa and freshly made Jalapeno sauce was great!! You can ask for Jalapeno sauce as it was not on the menu.
Overall great service and good food!!! Will definitely visit again..

Great food with quick service. Large portions so great for lunch the next day!

Loud but tasty
We went on Friday evening for a quiet dinner and were seated across from a group of 14 who were drinking and quite loud. We could barely hear ourselves think, let alone converse. The service was good, but slow as the wait-staff were over-subscribed for the number of indoor and outdoor tables they were serving. We went inside as we thought it would be a quieter experience but wound up with full bellies and broken eardrums. The guacamole was superb, and the meal for two was quite tasty, with a delicious tostada and very tasty black beans with rice.

Great service and good food.
The service was great unfortunately I did not get the server's name but he was awesome and did a great job recommending dishes and the service was not rushed. The margaritas were very good and well made and food portions were generous and very authentic tasting. A little on the expensive side.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again Sol Azteca delivers.
This is just an excellent, and consistently so, restaurant. The food is terrific, and the drinks are amazing. Best Sangria I've ever had, hands down. Get the large carafe, you'll want more!

Amazing Food and Staff
Love this place!! Super friendly staff, great food..very fresh. Large selection of specialty drinks. Hidden gem!
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice break from tourist spots.
Easily found just a couple blocks from subway stop on Cleveland Circle line. Obviously very popular neighborhood spot with a long ancestry of serving the area. Food was well above average and service was prompt but overbearing. Thought the drinks were a little lacking in both flavor and alcohol. Better to go for the food than the beverages. Outdoor dining option is a plus.

Guacamole among the best I
Guacamole among the best I have had. Margaritas also good.

We have gone to Sol Azteca for as long as it has been in existence. Our children grew up at this restaurant. Whenever they. Come home to visit this is where they want to eat. We also come here before the Sox games great food, friendly wait staff, it seems like we come home.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still the best
Always the best attitude and food! Always consistent for 40 years...!

Would go again
I loved the food, the place was quiet, easy to get to, and just absolutely delicious.

A Great Mexican Meal
My favorite thing about this place is that they know not to oversalt their food. Typically I find Mexican food to be soooo overly salty, but not here. The chips and salsa are without salt, and all the food was flavorful without being salty. This is a great spot for GF diners because so much of their menu is gluten free -- I'd say 90% or more!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time we come to Boston from SF to visit our BC son, we dine here. We happened upon this place through an Open Table search for places to eat in the vicinity of our son's dorm. What a find! The sauces here, including the cilantro, mole and veracruzano, are simply outstanding in their flavors, textures and combinations. I am also partial to the house made red Sangria which has makes typical Sangria seems sugary and boring. Have a wonderful time at this unique restaurant - and I hope you have one of the many waiters or waitresses who have made recommendations and enhanced our own dining experience. See you at Sol Azteca.

Fine Mexican food, lively atmospher
The food is good with a lot of variety--we were handed four different menus of drinks, small plates, specials, and regular items. Each dinner comes with rice, beans, and a tasty cabbage slaw. My enchiladas were delicious!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We like this restaurant,.
We like this restaurant,. Food , service, ambience all very good. Menu could use so e updating. I don't think it has changed mush in 15 years.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner! Very varied menu and food was extremely tasty (some Mexican restaurants prepared food that is too bland). Luckily we found this place (right off the T) as we are big Mexican food fans. This was authentic Mexican food (not mixed up slop, as I call it). I had chicken mole enchiladas, which was served with black refried beans, Mexican rice, and marinated cabbage that was almost like warm cole slaw. All very delicious. We are from out of town but will be back when we visit Boston again.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
still wonderful after all this time
My husband and I started going to Sol Azteca the week it opened, as we lived around the corner. As we moved out of the neighborhood, this was the first time we brought our two children. Everyone ordered something different, and it was all fantastic. This is a warm comfortable and delicious restaurant.

Great Mexican food
Sol Azteca is as good as there is in Boston for Mexican food. It was a little noisy, partly because there were a lot of Sox fans there on their way to game 2 of the World Series. I always enjoy this place.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great neighborhood spot with friendly staff, amazing food. The quality of the ingredients are outstanding...very authentic! The margaritas by far I think are the strongest in Boston! =0)

Great Mexican Food
Great Food, service was awesome. Menu was very diverse. Thank you for a great evening!

Best Mexican in Northeast
This was a euphoric experience. The good was amazing, the people were nice, and the eclectic scene was comforting.
First, the food: everything we ordered was better than the next. The two of us were "over served," meaning we had to bring everything home bc we kept adding to the mean. We even ordered a second Camarines al Cilantro just to bring home! This is the best Mexican dish I have ever had.
The staff could not be nicer. It seemed like they all ran the joint, and knew everything about the food, even that the salsa was prepared slightly hotter that evening! How cool!
The setting is extremely authentic.
Best food I have ever had!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I haven't been to Sol Azteca for 15 years and it seems nothing has changed...which is a good thing. Great "traditional" Mexican favorites with a few foodie oriented entrees. I stuck with the old faithfuls of enchiladas and chiles rellenos and was not disappointed.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Chicken Soup !
Had the chicken jalapeno soup on the special menu not sure if this is the regular soup they always have or not but this was special. The broth was so delicious I would of had them keep bring bowls of this and forgo my entree but the entrees were good too!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A group of us ate here before a show. The food was authentic, drinks strong and service fast. All at a great price, definitely a neighborhood gem!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food, drinks are all so good! So authentic, not trendy...which is a breath of fresh air from most of Boston's restaurant. Great staff!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Reliable, not too salty, GF Mexican
I love this place. Food is good -- reasonable portion to price ratio. The food is excellent -- not too salty, well seasoned, and generally very authentic. The mole sauce is excellent. The guacamole is fabulous. The red wine sangria is divine. The service can be a bit slow, so this isn't a great spot to go if you're in a rush. It IS, however, a great place for groups, as they have several seating areas and tables can easily be pushed together.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service was GREAT so was the prices. There were three of us that after seeing "The I Love Lucy Show, Live on Stage" and one of us has a gluten allergy. This restaurant is gluten free too. So if you like Mexican and in the area definitely try this place.
12/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have gone here over the years and appreciate the great house margaritas, people and service, a consistently delicious food. Thanks!
