    Have been to Sofias many times and have never been disappointed. I love the food, the drinks, their sangria is amazing, no complaints at all. They even accommodated us by preparing guacamole without onions since my SIL is allergic to them. Staff is very helpful, knowledgeable and very attentive. We will be back! Ohh and dont forget to try their two for one drinks every day of the week, which varies according to the day.

    Always have a great time at Sofia's - the food is always excellent and pretty authentic; the waiters are very attentive but not over-bearing, the atmosphere is lively and fun. They now have a prix fix with some pretty good options, which is a nice plus. I definitely would recommend Sofia's.

    The tacos are amazing, tres leches cake was really good and the service was very friendly. Two reasons for deducting a star: 1. Music was too loud. 2. Misunderstanding over “Margarita Monday”. They promote it as “buy one get the second one free”. Logically we thought that meant buy two and pay for one. It doesn’t. It basically means one free refill per person. We didn’t want two drinks each, and had we understood that, I would have ordered a beer and my wife would have ordered a glass of wine. How hard would it be to say “one free refill”? The food is good enough that we’ll definitely come back. We just won’t order margaritas!

    Was sat outside. Didn’t ask for outdoor. The bugs and mosquitoes were out of control. Unfortunately we ate very fast and left. Wish we were given a choice. I made reservation but didn’t ask for outdoor. Unfortunately. May take a while for us to come back. And I simply love the food and the waiters. Very professional

    Awesome service food and atmosphere. Frozen margaritas were a great way to start our evening. Had the pulled pork burrito and black bean amd corn burrito. All was delicious and a perfect ending to our day out on the golf course. Did I mention margaritas?? Awesome all around without breaking the bank!! Big thank you to all the staff Planning our next visit real soon

    Service was great, loved our waitress. The food was absolutely delicious. Only issue was the noise level, it was kinda loud and hard to hear each other. Otherwise, it was a great experience. This was our 2nd time there and we’ll definitely be going for a 3rd.

    If you are looking for a very loud very boisterous place that serves great food, this is the place for you. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the service was dealing with the large crowd and noise. They made you feel welcome and not stressed. Food was fresh and prepared beautifully. Highly recommend.

    The food was okay nothing special BUT good tasteful food my husband liked the chicken and rice . Downside, I made reservations a month in advance and still waited 45 minutes. I understand it was Valentine’s Day so that’s why there was a long wait but only thing is they don’t have an area so that you can sit and wait people literally was in the walk/door way the place is tight. Another thing I did not like was the fact that it was a prefix menu there was no place on the website that stated for the night of Valentine’s Day it will be a prefix menu. So some where that have stuff on the menu for $20 My husband ended up paying $200 for food we did not eat. All we wanted was some tacos and some drinks we had no choice but to get a full meal. Over all experience was okay.

    The service was absolutely terrible. We ordered and then waited for 30 minutes without any chips or salsa and waited for our appetizers. Then our entrees came out. I asked about our appetizers and the waiter said “oh I didn’t write it down.” However we did see him write it down. Then he said don’t worry, I didn’t charge you for them. It was extremely disorganized and very disappointing. No apology and no manager to step in.
