I've been to Puerto Rico & I must say my Cuban sandwich & the tostones I ordered were just like in PR!! Others in my party ordered the bistek sandwich & loved it! Make sure you either order a pancho or limeade drink!

Ate lunch here recently while visiting nephew in San Rafael (his recommendation, living in area almost 2 yrs, his fave place to eat!) and enjoyed fresh-tasting, delicious authentic PR food! Very crowded, waiting about 10 mins for our table of 6. Delicious specialty drinks, loved the chicken thighs and rice! Be careful about nearby on-street parking (only until 4:00 PM,... More

This food is fantastic. My favorite is the pinto beans with olives-- add a little of their hot sauce and YUM! One of my favorite restaurants. Eat there, family style, or take out!

I must say I am a frequent visitor of this place, and have had it delivered many times. The place is crowded which I don't like. But the food is fresh and yummy with lots of options. It is informal.

Great! Fresh! Tasty! Nice family style eatery! Always busy ( a lot of locals eat there)! Service is fast and friendly! Our favorite is steak salad- grilled steak with onions and fresh salad with their own dressing of oil and garlic.... yammy

They serve pretty good food, but not worth the price you pay for. Also I can say that they do miss a big dish that is a must when it comes to Puerto Rican food, which is the arroz amarillo (Arroz con Gandules). Other then that, most of their dishes are typical Puerto Rican/ Caribbean food. But because of the... More

If you like Puerto Rican food, this is the place to go north of the Golden Gate. Their signature Cubano sandwich is amazing. I hate to say this but it's all I ever get there. I know I'm supposed to try different things but I love the Cubano. My grown daughter tells me that the other items on the menu... More

A friend took me to Sol Food at around 1pm on a Saturday. A short line outside of the door moved very quickly, and staff was courteous and efficient. But THE FOOD. Superbly tasty food in filling portions. I am visiting the area from the East Coast, and this is a restaurant that I will go home and talk about.
