We probably should've known better when on an empty Saturday afternoon, our waitress told us that "the machine is old and slow. It can't do something like that", when we asked her (before ordering) if we could get two checks for our two families. Um, ok? So being polite, we just left it as one check (so as not to... More

We have been to Sol several times, in the downstairs bar area. We've been when it was busy and not busy. One bartender will give you a basket of chips when you order drinks while you have to ask the other guy for them. Staff should be consistent. The glasses are clean and the drinks are good. All the food... More

This is one of those restaurants that I have been meaning to get to. What a shame to have waited so long. Very busy place and noisy on a Saturday night. They only take reservations for groups of 6+. But you can call ahead to put your name on the list. Parking is in front and the best back. Rear... More

From the moment they make the guacamole at your table, to the time your meal comes out and it is huge, this is a great night out. Big menu. We are regular mexican food eaters, and I can say this was very good. Some of the appetizers I had never heard of before, but they were excellent. You can't go... More

The atmosphere was pleasant. I enjoyed the food and service. The price matched the quality nicely. I enjoyed my taco salad and their selection of craft beers. Everyone in my party of four enjoyed their dinner.

Been here 5 times and never fails me in any way. This time was seated within 5 minutes. If wait is longer they take your phone number and system will send you a text when ready. Chips and salsa come to table before you even get your drinks. Drinks are large and you can get them "supercharged" with a straw... More
