As a person in search of gluten free food it was nice to find this restaurant. We went there three times during our 9 day holiday. The first time I had the sampler taco dish - 5 tacos! I loved the food, the location on the patio in the nice sun and the peace and quiet of the area.

Sofrita's.....easy to miss as it is a block off of Saguro just west of "The Fountain". Arriving at 11:00 we wondered if we had made a good choice as it was empty of diners. That changes quickly as at noon it is "SRO". Menu is unique, nothing out of a can here, true Mexican fare. Noticed a couple of reviews... More

We had dinner there last night and the service was very slow. We had to wait 30 mins after we were seated to order a drink. The drinks were not worth the money. The food was ok, will not go back again!

This is our third time visiting Sofrita's.... and this is a second review. We wanted to make sure that we let folks know that service seems to have improved. No small thing for this otherwise busy resturant in a town with not much to chose from. First, we noted some small changes to the menu. We had brushetta (warm artichoke... More

went to the Thursday market and found this place. Sangria was so tasty and don't get me started on the guacamole . That is the best I have had. Then a nice combo of tomato bisque and grilled cheese. We sat on the patio . That was very nice. Super nice staff

Have been here twice and felt the service was atrocious both times. No more for me! It is a great location and nice outdoor seating. Too bad it is all spoiled with poor service. Umbrellas are too low and impede the sidewalk as well.
