Sol Azteca Restaurant
Specializing in authentic Mexican cuisine and located in Boston on the Brookline/Boston line. Sol Azteca serves an array of popular and traditional dishes such as tacos, enchiladas and tostadas. Made from scratch salsas and sauces, home made desserts, hand-fried chips daily - this is not fast food. Fresh ingredients and real chile peppers are used in our recipes. We make Mole Poblano sauce in-house from scratch - that's over 20 ingredients! Some of our signature dishes include Shrimp Cilantro, Pollo Mango, Chiles Relleno, Chilaquiles. Chips and salsa are complimentary with each entree. Come enjoy a margarita made just for you with our house-infused spicy tequila, mezcal or another fine tequila, our award-winning sangria, imported Mexican beers and wines.
Family friendly. Kids' menu. Vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are also available. Outdoor patio. Private room for birthdays and functions up to 50 people.
It had been years since I'd been to Sol Azteca...and it's still one of the best Mexican Restaurants I've enjoyed. Pama-Rita is delicious...as is the black bean soup, carnitas and guacamole! Check it out!
Birthday dinner! Made a notation on the reservation, and yet service staff forgot to acknowledge it at dessert.
Best enchiladas verdes I’ve ever had!
My nephews 21st birthday
Very accommodating for a last minute reservation. Host was pleasant. Margaritas were not very good with a lot of ice. Fajitas were very good with a large serving although there could have been more tortillas. Chicken quesadilla was terrible. Deep fried with plain chicken inside. No flavoring or cheese. Rice seemed dry and old. Tab was reasonable.
Excellent food (the guacamole is tremendously good) and drinks. It's a great place to dine on the patio.
Food was a little bland and service was a bit slow.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner on Saturday of Labor Day weekend at Sol Azteca. Boston was crazy busy with BU student move-in but Sol Azteca did a fantastic job getting us seated and served efficiently. We enjoyed dining at an outside table and the food was delicious. The owner made sure we were seated promptly and checked on us during our meal. We felt very welcomed and appreciated. Thanks to the entire staff for an enjoyable dinner. We will definitely return when we are back in Boston to visit our daughter. :)
The service was very very slow but the food was good.
Was great our waitress Dilly was fanatic . Food was great and a lot for the money . Drinks are also great . I’d recommend it . Everyone works there was super. nice.
We will be back soon.
Surprisingly, other than shrimp, no seafood on the menu. Otherwise, good Mexican staples. But menu could be updated
I grew up in So Cal and I love authentic Mexican food. We live in NJ now and don't have any really good Mexican restaurants near us. We do seek them out in NYC and when we're in other big cities. I had read many of the great reviews and we were super excited to check this place out. The restaurant was in a good location, beautiful authentic decor. Friendly, but slow service. Food was fresh but not very flavorful...the four of us had a mix of menu items, including a special...they were all just okay. Margaritas were watered down, weak. All in all, it was just "meh." Bummer...
We have been going to Sol Azteca since it opened in 1973. It has always been one of our favorite restaurants. We always considered the chips and salsa the best in the city, but we did not enjoy the new chips and salsa. The rest of the food was good, but not quite as good as in the past. The banana / caramel dessert was excellent as always.
We are regulars here. The service is great and outdoor patio just the thing in the summer.
Great food, great waiter, great atmosphere , delicious pork tostadas
I've been eating here forever. They are one of the longest running Mexican restaurants in town and it is because their food service and menu choices are spectacular. Outdoor seating in the summer is really nice. Inside in the winter is warm and cozy. Always a great dinner.
I love Sol Azteca. The food is always wonderful and super yummy margs.
Wonderful as always. Have been going there since they opened in 1974. Always fantastic. Best salsa I have ever had. Absolutely my favorite for Mexican food.
Amazing food, drinks and service. A bit pricy for the area
My wife and I had a lovely meal. I had a great Flor de Cana run and Mexican coke for my cocktail. I had the tasty chicken and rice as well as the savory Fish Veracruzana. My wife enjoyed the Mango chicken. Great service, outside seating and flavorful food. Prices were fair; portions were large. This was a great meal.
The menu at the restaurant was different that what was online which was a little disappointing, as I couldn’t order what I originally wanted. The food came out really fast, but took a bit for a server to initially come over. Food was good overall.
Sol Azteca is always a favorite stop for us. Great food and amazing sangria! Relaxed atmosphere and terrific staff.
Overall fine - sat outside so minimal restaurant noise - food was good but not exceptional - service seemed slow though it didn’t impact us because we were not at all in a hurry. It was okay but no real need to hurry back.
Food and drinks were delicious. Service was great. Very happy
Very excellent food, margaritas, lighting, and service. Thank you!
Good place to catch a good meal before a good game!
Consistently good if not innovative. Some outstanding dishes such as the Queso Asana. Plus they make a great Margarita
Consistently one of the best restaurants in Boston and some of the best Mexican food I have had. Cozy but without feeling crowded. And great sangria
The service and food were both great. We both had fajitas, vegetarian for my sister and shrimp for me, both were excellent.
One of our favorite local restaurants. Always good.
Great food, friendly service in a quaint atmosphere. We'll come back for sure!
Always a great experience at Sol Azteca! Such a low-key place with delicious food and tasty drinks. It's the perfect place to grab a bite after work with friends and/or co-workers. The enchiladas with mole are a staple for me, and the complimentary salsa is delightful, especially paired with an order of fresh guacamole.
I’ve been a loyal customer of Sol Azteca since they opened 45 years ago! The food is the best tasting, most authentic Mexican food I’ve eaten anywhere in the US! The menu is varied and I’ve had the opportunity to try just about everything. The sangria is absolutely the BEST. The salsa and chips are better than anywhere. The queso is delicious. The veracruzano sauce is my favorite. The banana and caramel dessert is unique, light and perfectly SUPERB.
Back in the 1970s I lived around to he corner. Now I make the hour trip when i want to make sure I get a great meal.
Everything was completely amazing. Delicious food, great service, and the best frozen margarita!!
My party was courteously greeted when we arrived. The host dismissed, with a gentle and non-fake smile, my apology for being 10 minutes late. Our waitress's timing between asking what we wanted to drink, to eat, whether we were pleased, etc., was just right. I ordered the molé poblano. The chicken was moist and falling apart, the molé sauce was well balanced and thickened by reduction just so, the other parts of the dish were tasty and comforting. The management runs a tight ship while maintaining a welcoming atmosphere.
The queso asado (fundido) was a fabulous appetizer with the homemade chips. The enchiladas were equally delicious. The fajitas were somewhat disappointing in their presentation (not "sizzling"), but was tasty. The fajita tortillas were seemingly "old" or overcooked in that they did not roll up well (hardened). Friendly staff and fun ambiance. We'll be back!
We have never been disappointed at Sol Azteca over the many years that we have been going there.
Nice environment, our waiter Miguel was awesome make us have a great time there, the food it's good, fair price. Original Mexican flavor and Mexican people that's the Best.
A nice place for authentic Mexican fare. Go early and it's kid-friendly, go later and it's a nice romantic setting with good drinks. My only suggestion would be more consistent lighting throughout the restaurant.
they used to serve the best drinks. the last time they were barely drinkable
