Without a doubt this is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Athens. I've wondered what makes their food so different from others and have finally decided it is because they prepare your meal just before it is served. Whether vegetables or meats, the ingredients are raw until they are grilled for your burrito, tacos or whatever. At the Tallassee location you... More

Nice place. Highly recommend. Three of us stopped here for dinner recently. The place was clean, staff were friendly, extensive menu, terrific food, good size portions, fair price. What more do you need?

Sr.sol is one hell of a chef! The food is wonderful here. Staff are helpful and friendly and the place is very clean. Very good salads and steaks! Would recommend for family trips. Thought it was nothing new but was in for a surprise. The traveling Mortician

When I used to go to this spot fairly often, it had a different name (which escapes me now). Assuming that they still have the same quality food and drinks, it's some of the best Mexican food in Athens. The prices aren't too bad, either, and it's a good location to either downtown OR to the liquor store if you're... More

Went to Sr. Sol tonight alone traveling for a conference and sat at the bar. The staff across the board was beyond friendly. Every single person I interacted with acted like I was the most important customer in the establishment. The food was excellent and the beer tasted fresh and was in a nice very well chilled mug. Could not... More

We chat with the owner whenever we see him -- he is so sweet and goes out of his way to make sure everything is good and everyone is... More

I don't know why I'd never eaten here until today, having lived in the Athens area for the last 30 years or so. But one thing is sure, it won't be the last time. From the moment i tasted the chorizo burrito with cheese sauce, I was in love. My other three lunch partners were equally impressed, both with the... More

My family and I have enjoyed dining at Sr. Sol since they opened their first location in the old Huddle House off Tallassee Road. I make every effort to try new things there and I've never been disappointed, but I always go back to the following: the barbacoa tacos (perfectly filling), the torta loca (a symphony of meats), the chorizo...

Not only because it is in my neighborhood but Sr. Sol has such good food and great servers. I eat here about 3 times per week. Very good experience. I love this small "hole in the wall" feel.
