We have been going to Sol for years now. Not sure what changed but the food just has not been the same. Not sure if there is a new cook or just becoming lax in their cooking. May be willing to try again but was really disappointed the last two times we went

Without a doubt the most pathetic $18 ribeye steak I have ever been served. It was as thick as a #2 pencil and about as tasty. I asked for medium but it was tough and gray. the burritoes were 95% rice. Excellent service, if only the food could match it.

My wife and I went there for dinner on Sunday night. The place was fairly empty. The bar was not appealing and looked more like work area for servers. Food was bland and tasteless. I ordered the cheese enchiladas that were served room temperature cold. Overall not impressed. The restaurant gas potential but needs a new chef and cleanup of the bar area.

The food was great, but we seemed to be waiting a long time to give our orders and to get the food out to our group. We were however a large group so that may have played a role in the wait.

Decent food at a good price. Service was reasonably quick given that they were busy. Sangria tasty but not overpowering - 1/2 pitcher a little small for 2 people. Casual atmosphere probably encourages people to be louder than they need to be.
We will go back.

We always have a good time at Sol. We had the stuffed jalapeno appetizer - stuffed with something special every night. This night it was shredded steak. Excellent. And the always reliable "guacamole live" - prepared right at your table - was tasty as always.

Excellent authentic mexican cuisine. This place should NOT be missed!
The service can be hit or miss, our first time was in a large group but our
server hit the mark. He was attentive, prompt and the orders were correct. Our
second visit was a polar opposite in every way with the exception that the food
was still excellent.

Great local place, with consistent food at a good price, but service is so bad that it may not be worth returning. A shame because the group does a much better job on service at other establishments it owns. Server disappeared for nearly 25 minutes during meal and manager on duty seemed more interested in holding up the wall than assisting in a clearly understaffed dining room. Not sure that we would return.

Had a great time catching up with an old friend here. We were not rushed at all, and the server was very attentive to our needs. The only fault I found is it took a little longer then expected to get our drinks. Other than that, great restaurant. Will definitely return!

Fod was very good...especially the guacamaole. Only negative was the service.....got mixed up a couple of times with other tables.....no chips for the salsa until we asked. It was a busy night (mothers day) so I suspect they were crazed...minor hiccups...still a solid place for good mexican food. Will definately be back.

Great atmosphere for our group of 14. Our waitress was very attentive. The kids loved the taco's and atmosphere of this restaurant. Outside seating looked very nice and cozy, but was pouring rain and we had to sit inside. Everyone was happy with their meals and drinks. We all loved the fresh made guacamole made right at our table. Everyone enjoyed the large on tap beer selection and Margarita choices......

The food and sangria were great, but the wait staff was extremely slow. There were times when we felt like they forgot about us. They also did not apply the discounts that were offered to the bill, however once we said something they applied them.

My friend and I enjoy the atmosphere, the chips and salsa with a pitcher of your red wine Sangria after a crazy week at work. We then order our main course after relaxing for a bit. Thanks for not rushing us out when we linger too long. Great staff.

I was hoping that this restaurant would be authentic mexican food. I was highly disappointed with the quality and flavor of the entrees that were ordered. I could have whipped up better Mexican fare at home with more robust flavor. I do not recommend and will not revisit. I felt that service was lack luster and about the best thing that we had ordered was the Sangria.
