                          We made reservations at the last minute and asked for outside seating. The manager was extremely accommodating and very helpful. We had an amazing meal and sangria! The seating is in the sidewalk in the city so a little bit noisy but fun. Love this place!

                          If you live near Beacon and Park Drive, You're no doubt familiar with this neighborhood gem. Quality and service have been legendary at Sol Azteca for decades I'd imagine. The entrees are always great, the Margaritas are superb and the Queso Asado just might be the Mexican equivalent to crack (soooo good). Support this restaurant during the pandemic. Thye've never let us down!

                          We arrived at 4pm but in actuality the restaurant really opened at 5 - Open Table needs to correct opening time. But no matter the charming manager adjusted hours for the 3 of us. We had a nice table in the shade on the patio. Very nice social get together for us in this time of pandemic isolation. Great music playing for nice ambiance. Food delicious. And staff was GREAT!! Wonderful evening.

                          My family has been going to Sol Azteca since it opened so of course I’m biased and I think it’s amazing. Just want to note that they don’t open until 5pm but for some reason Open Table has reservations starting at 4pm. I don’t want anyone making reservations then getting mad when they show up and it’s closed. If you like real, authentic Mexican food please go and support this family owned small business.

                          Best Sangria I’ve ever had, not too sweet! The server was delightful and the ambiance is cozy. Good sized portions

                          It may have been chilly outside but the staff was warm and welcoming. Great guacamole and nice flavors. True Mexican food.

                          I’ve been going to Sol Azteca since the 80’s and it never fails! The cilantro chicken is so amazing! One of my favorite restaurants.

                          The manager (?) that night was very gracious and kindly opened a section of the restaurant that was normally closed on Sundays to accommodate our party’s disability needs. The waitress we had was also very attentive and considerate.

                          Saturday is Date Night for this long-time married couple, and we have often celebrated at Sol Azteca over the last hundred years or so! We love it.

                          Great food, hard to get the waiter’s attention but food came quickly when we did order. Not cheap, but definitely worth it in a city that has limited options for Mexican food.

                          They were super accomodating to us as vegans and to my allergy stuff. The wait staff and the food was fabulous. However, I was super disappointed that the rice was made with chicken broth. They made that very clear on the menu, however, which I appreciated.

                          This had been one of our favorite restaurants for over 20 years. The food is always wonderful and it’s a great atmosphere. Their mole sauce is the best I’ve ever had anywhere! (If you like that) and every other dish we’ve ever had has been just as good

                          Go here only if you have low standards for food and service. We were a party of four, and came at 6:30. the restaurant was not crowded. Two of us ordered fajitas, one ordered a shrimp dish, and one ordered fish and pork tacos. We also ordered guacamole for the table. The guacamole came on time, but the main courses didn't come for almost an hour! I had to ask the manager to fix the problem. He explained they were serving a large group in another room. The fajitas arrived shortly thereafter, and the other two dishes arrived about 10 minutes later. The meat in the fajitas was lukewarm, and the rice and refried bean were cool to room temperature. They had obviously been ready long before and had sat under a heat lamp. Fajitas are supposed to come hot and sizzling, which this was not. And the refried beans had congealed into a glutinous brown slab. I complained to the waiter, and asked that the plates be reheated. He said he couldn't do that. The other dishes were also lukewarm. We were happy to get our check and leave. The meal cost about $100, including three glasses of wine. I tipped the waiter $20 because waiters in the US are underpaid. I hadn't been to this Sol Azteca for years, and only came because an out of town guest wanted to. Now I remember why I have avoided it. By the way, I had a similar experience at their branch in Newton Center, because another friend insisted we go. The service there was ok, but the food was horrible.

                          I lived in the Southwest for many years, and was spoiled to have an abundance of great Mexican food. This place was just like being back in Tucson, Sonora Mexico. Food was out of this world, wait staff was efficient, friendly and definitely not in your face. Service time was fast and the food was incredible, very authentic. If it hadn't been snowing, could have sworn I was in Mexico. We are going again next time we're in Boston.

                          The food was delicious and wonderful; the server seemed to be scattered and a lacking in service. We had a wonderful time, but there were moments in which it was clear we hadn’t decided what we wanted and we needed space. Our server asked us 5+ times over a course of a few minutes what we wanted even after we said we needed time to figure it out. It made us uncomfortable because we had stated our boundaries, and they weren’t respected, and it made both of us want to leave.
