As good as they say!

Before arriving on Vieques I read/heard all kinds of wonderful feedback about Sol Food, and what they say is true! This is a perfect stop on the way to/from the beach. The food is delicious, inexpensive, and quick. My husband and I split a huge Cuban sandwich and a beef empanada, and we talked... read more

This place really is great. The food is authentic and made while you wait. People are friendly and all I can say is if you've made it to Vieques, GO!

Nice to come out from the beach to find this little gem. The food was delicious and reasonable. A wonderful little pit stop that will definitely satisfy your taste buds.

Great food for a good price - we had heard about this food truck and were lucky to accidentally finding it on our first day of our vacation. Wanted to return, but unfortunately it was not open for the rest of our time on Vieques. Definitely worth to stop by and pick something up! All four of us had something... More

After many vacations to Vieques I've never had the pleasure of stopping at Sol Food. It's right outside the entrance to the Fish and Wildlife preserve. We ordered 2 sandwiches the Bob Marley and what they recommended the Ruben. Probably the best sandwich I've ever eaten. You will moan over these flavors. The spicy with the sweet, and the bread....unbelievably... More

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 empanadas),... 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.
