Great place to stop on the way to the beach

We stopped on the way to the beach to pick up some lunch and a few drink. I had a Bob Marley sandwich. Really good. Some spicy kick to it, which I like. Others had the empanadas. They also said they were good. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars was that for three lunches (one sandwich, some... read more

My husband and I stopped on our way to the beach... OPEN weekends only! We were lucky to catch it open, not only did we have the best food all week, we had some great tips as to where to go on the island... A real "mom and pop" type of business... Highly recommend you give this place a try!

Get the Cubano sandwich - it is delicious. Portions at Sol Food are generous, the prices are low and the service is friendly.

Best pork carnitas! A must stop on the island - great to grab on your way to the beach. Also, another couple got the brownie and told us it was to die for.... It was!

We have been by for the past three days and it's never open. It looks like it's been closed for months.

Had the best carnitas taco of my life. It was huge!!! We also had a cherry Arnold Palmer that was delicious and refreshing.

Some of the best beach food on the island. Although we love everything on the menu...it would be great to see some variation. We ate there almost every day and got tired of the same choices. Don't get me wrong....still our favorite place to grab lunch for the beach!

Excellent spot to check out--we grabbed some food here (wanted to order the entire menu) to have lunch on the beach. The food was really tasty, and the portions were more than enough. It's not a coincidence that they open at 11 and are out of food by 1:30--don't miss it.

Let's be clear: this is truck food, not fine dining. That said, we ordered double what we should have. Each one of us ordered the selection of three choices for lunch to eat on the beach. One order would have been plenty for two.
