Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I live in Arizona and when we are in town, we always hit Sol Azteca or REAL Mexican food. I love everything on the whole menu and my wife especially loves the pollo cilantro. You know everything is freshly made and nothing comes from a can. It is a great place to have dinner before a Sox game. Just a short walk to Fenway."

  • "It has been years since I had been to this restaurant. I used to think this was such a special place, maybe it was or I was just young! Went to Sol Azteca before a Sox game. It was not crowded but there was a large group celebrating and they were very loud. That wasn't bad I don't mind celebrating but imagine a totally full restaurant! Despite the fact that the restaurant wasn't full, service was very slow for everything drinks, water, food. Food is still decent and reasonable for the amount you get. Overall an ok dinner. "

  • "Food was very poor, hardly warm. Enchiladas were $15 and not worth it. Service was slow, disorganized, margaritas were watery. If you want Mexican food, go somewhere elsewhere."

  • "The restaurant was serviceable, and the staff extremely cordial. Despite using lots of salt (too much!) the food was rather bland. Prices seen quite high for the value of the food. The ambience did suggest Mexico, however."

  • "We all enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. My only comment was the ceviche was rather bland. But after being in LA where Mexican food is so fantastic maybe this isn't a fair comparison. Beware however, parking on the street csn be a disaster. We did not see any sign that the parking was for residents. I mean they had parking meters which we filled correctly and somehow managed to get a ticket. Guess the city needs money,"

  • "Free Chips and Salsa with any emtree ordered. Excellent sangria, sopa de pollo y arroz ( Chicken soup with rice ), and mouthwatering tacos fritas with ground beef. A mainstay in Boston and so close to Fenway Park!"

  • "Sol Azteca used to be a staple "go to" restaurant but the quality of the food has declined considerably. Our waiter was great and made the evening, but I have been very disappointed my past few visits."

  • "We used to live in Boston in the 70's. Can you imagine our surprise that Sol Azteca was still serving their great Sangria and guacamole. Glad we found them again. Nice place."

  • "Went early on Saturday day niught with our 2 kids (7&4). The service staff was very attentive and polite. They even had a kids menu. The food was good, could have used more color on my enchilada mole poblano plate, but the meal was delicious. My husband and friend both had the steak & shrimp fajitas, tasty, but didn't come out sizzling as you would expect at other chain like restaurants. Their homemade salsa and chips is delicious. The place lacks in ambience, but has a lot of potential to improve. Its a good place to go if you are in the area."

  • "The margaritas are clearly from a cheap mix. I thought I was drinking some type of cleaning detergent. Stick with the bear. The salsa is pretty good if you doctor it with limes and salt. The entree's were tasty. I wasn't blown out of the water or extremely underwhelmed either. I just thought there could be a better blend of spices in the food."

  • "We had a reservation for 8:00 pm on a Saturday night and were seated after only a few minutes. We waited about 15 minutes before the waitress came to take our drink order. She told us they were out of all soft drinks. We ordered our food and the waitress told us they were out of guacamole. What Mexican restaurant is out of guacamole? After waiting another 30 minutes, the waitress came back and said they were out of cheese for the item my son had ordered. We cancelled his order. The food finally came about 15 minutes later. During the meal the waitress never came back to ask if the food was okay or if we wanted another drink. I hadn't been to Sol Azteca in years and will not return again any time soon."

  • "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."

  • "nice place; sangria was great. food was very good. nice people. enjoyed it a lot ."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "For a casual place to grab some decent food and great margaritas, this fit our needs just fine. Nothing superb, but a nice spread of menu options and a casual atmosphere."

  • "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!"

  • "Always good for groups and with kids. I like that they give you the option to combine items on the menu. Service can be slow at times and not all the dinners come out at once but the food is very good and authentic in flavor and presentation."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
