The chicken is delicious, rice and beans with ripe plantains is a must. Tostones not as good as they should be, still OK.

Sol Food is one of my comfort food go-to's. I go for the classic Cuban Sandwich...delicious. And the plantain chips...don't miss them. There is always a wait and always a line...so just be patient. The chicken with rice & beans will make you melt.

I nearly gave Sol Food only 4/5 because it is always so busy, but I can't, in good conscience, give a place 4/5 for being too busy under the weight of its own success. These folks simply make delicious food, and a great number of people want it, myself included. We are very fortunate to have such reasonably-priced, delicious food... More

Stopped here for a late lunch. Even at 3 pm, there was a pretty good number of customers so thought the food would be pretty good and wasn't disappointed. Had the large order of Chuletas Fritas (pan fried pork chops) with black beans and rice and plantains (went with one garlic and one sweet). Everything tasted great and was served... More

The food here is just so tasty. I was sad that they were out of the rotisserie chicken by 4pm. But the ribs were super good. Been coming here for a few years and always leave happy. It is crowded, that's really the only downside.

Disclaimer: I grew up eating Puerto Rican food, so my expectations might be a little higher than others. A friend of mine mentioned this place and the very next day, I see them on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I took this as a sign I needed to check it out. We arrived around 10:45 a.m.. on a Thursday. Not busy... More

I loved this restaurant every time I tried it. Everything is delicious, fresh and sooo puerto rican! I loved the mariquitas and maduros so bad!!!!! Salads, chicken and sandwiches....Even The drinks are unforgettable. If I will ever have The chance to go back to San Rafael I will definitely stop by again.

As a local I have always been amazed at the constant waiting lines outside Sol Food. The food is always the same menu with a few specials, and it is reliable , reasonably priced , and fresh...but not over the top outstanding.What I realized is that the interior design of this place , the color, the funky old doors leaning...
