Live their food. The chips and salsa sampler is a must every time we go here. Margaritas are vey good and we have tried many Doukenie items and they all have all been delicious.

Great food and excellent service. It is always a pleasure to visit El Sol.
The food was DELICIOUS! Excellent restaurant to visit if you love authentic Mexican dishes. Our waiter was also fantastic. Definitely coming back soon:)
We dined with my niece and her boyfriend. We all enjoyed our food very much! Our service was excellent, the food was hot, and ambiance was lovely as usual. There was noise but it was the sound of happy diners having happy conversations. Thank you for a nice evening!
Good carnitas and tacos. Service was super fast! Drinks were great.
Have been there many, many times over the years. Consistently excellent food, service and ambiance. One of my favorites and the by far the best Mexican restaurant in the area!
Some of the worst Mexican food we’ve eaten.
Business lunch for six folks. Excellent Service and treat food. All person very satisfied with their selections.
Great pick for a place we went into blind. Wish we weren't from out of town so we could come back again.
Everything was splendid!
I highly recommend the trio ceviche!
Great food. Excellent customer service. Great Cocktails. Sangria is excellent. Goat Cheese Guacamole appetizer is incredible. Highly recommend a stop. Nice restaurant serving Mexican cuisine. Nice location in downtown Harrisburg. We try to go there at least once a month. Convenient on street parking or valet service for a small fee. On street parking is free after 6 pm.
Excellent food, drink, and service. Overall excellent experience for my group.
We were seated quickly, the drinks were good and the food was great as was the service. Would highly recommend.
Visiting the city and it was close to the hotel. It was quite good overall! Happy that we chose here.
The services is great and the food is always delicious!
The hostess seemed a bit overwhelmed, our server forgot some of the items we ordered
Very busy on Saturday evening and the staff appeared rushed, but doing the best they could. That left little time to provide the extra touch we all sometimes enjoy. However, El Sol sets a high bar for itself, as my dining experiences have always been very good to excellent. As always, the food was excellent and the menu selection wide-ranging.
Consistently excellent food and service... Start w/the chips/salsa and guacamole... Ceviche a good choice... shrimp soft tacos...
Great experience. Fun setting.
Great service. Food was amazing.
Aleays great food. Waiter did a wonderful job considering he had so may tables.
Ate at El Sol Express (Lindle Road) the night before & the food at Express was better than the full service restaurant. The Guacomole was good. The Chile Rellenos (cheese stuffed) were a little soggy and they were not hot enough to keep the cheese melted. The fondue was a big blob of melted cheese with small particles of mushroom, green onion and pepper. We were hoping to love our experience but the food was not that good. Our server was great!
The food is very, very good. Excellent menu and the waitress was very professional. This restaurant is worth a trip to Harrisburg, PA.
My family came into town from NC. Had to take them to their favorite restaurant!! Shaq was awesome!!
Excellent Mexican food and loads of choices. Well done!
I heartily recommend the Bistek Guadalajara to any meat eaters. It is wonderful.
Very good meal
We had reservations and people without reservations was seated and served before us. Then we waited an hour food our food and our oder was wrong. When we did receive our food we didn't have silverware. We wait for 10 minutes for the silverware but decided to leave without eating.
The food and atmosphere are authentic. The quality and taste of the food is outstanding. Our waiter, Steve, was very helpful and courteous. We highly recommend El Sol for an authentic Mexican dining experience.
The food was excellent and presented very well. The house margaritas were awesome! Great overall dining experience!
Excellent food and drinks - always a great dining experience.
To noisy for a catch up and waiter Randall accommodated requests to turn down piped in music. Only complaint.
