Really good food, service and incredible value!
Food, service, atmosphere are ALWAYS consistent for a wonderful night out!
We were on a family vacation and found this gem of a restaurant on open table. It was the most delicious Mexican food we have had in a long time. The guacamole, ceviche, pitcher of margaritas, grilled salmon and molcajete were superb!! The highlight of the dinner was the tres leches dessert which we devoured in minutes with 4 forks! If you’re looking for a delicious Mexican dinner in a warm family-run setting, we highly recommend this place!
A very enjoyable dining experience. The positions were large and the service was excellent. The fajitas portions are large and full of a great mix of chicken and fresh vegetables. The nacho sampler is a great choice . Looking forward to the new location opening in Mechainicsburg, PA.
This place is at the top of my list! The food is delicious, the atmosphere warm, interesting and unique and the partitions between the tables lend an intimacy to the open floor plan. I’ll be back!
Excellent food and very authentic Mexican. Our server was Cassidy, an amiable and helpful young man. Thank you for a nice dining experience!
Maria was a wonderful server. Met friends we hadn’t seen in over a year. There was a large party there that was pretty loud but overall was ok.
The server was great! The food so good. I especially like the goat cheese guacamole. There was a Pomegranate Mojito that had mint in it and it was out of this world.
Always a wonderful experience, food and ambiance are great!
Our waiter, Randall, was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the menu. They have a pretty extensive drink list. I absolutely will go back if I'm in the area. The food is so great.
Good is always amazing and fresh! Cassidy was great as our waiter
Great food, helpful staff. Most importantly, they are taking appropriate health safety measures. Thank you!

Very good. Staff was friendly and service quick.
We had a fabulous meal. My sister and I were having a girl’s night out and this was perfect. From the skinny margarita to the Queso fundido to our entrees, everything was wonderful and so was the service. We will definitely be back.
Food and drinks were outstanding. Considering measures given for Covid, ambience wasn't too bad.
Goat cheese guacamole was the best!
We love Kayla. Wanna take her home with us! ;)
Food is amazing!!! Fresh, bright and beautifully presented!! Ceviche is top notch!
We love El Sole Mexican Restaurant. I love the grilled fish taco. The flavors are delicious. I only wish that you used wild caught cod and not tilapia.
Visited often for lunch and happy hour, but just enjoyed an amazing dinner for an early Valentine's Day. Excellent food and service.
Food and drinks were delicious. Waiter was ok. He wasn't bad, just odd. But it wouldn't keep me from coming back. Everyone's personalities are different.
Food is delicious, plentiful and affordable! Service was great too.
The food is always delicious at El Sol. They're taking the necessary precautions to protect customers during the COVID pandemic.
Great place to have a Spanish meal, friendly service and "safe" environment. Get your reservation in early.
We were waiting over 20 minutes and no one even came to our table. The restaurant is only at 50% capacity and still, no one saw us be seated?? We had to physically flag someone down to come over and speak with. No manager was ever sent over, nothing. It was supposed to be a night out for my husbands birthday (drinks, food, adult time) and nothing was even addressed for it, even though I marked on the reservation that it was a special night out. So disappointed.
The food and service are always excellent!
Food excellent, service excellent, patron margaritas highly recommend; mojahecte bowl great; I highly recommend the ceviches, great place
Food was really good. This is a little gem. The guac was on point. Service was really good. Recommend it for date night, catching up with friends, or just some good Mexican food.
Fantastic gem of a restaurant in Harrisburg. The food was authentic and absolutely delicious. We love spicy food and El Sol delivered on spicy. The spicy shrimp left a true burn on my tongue and I loved it. The margaritas were the best I've ever tasted. I don't leave near Harrisburg, but when I'm near there, I will surely go back!!
Thank you El Sol!
