I went into this place not knowing what to expect. The building was a great lime green color with the interior decor set up in a cool country style; drinks in jars and picnic tables etc. I ordered a sandwich with eggs, ham, cheese, tomatoes, onions, and jack cheese. It came on bread that was... read more

Great food. There are two sides a sit down restaurant and a to go Café right next door to each other. Went there two days in a row. Was recommended by a local. Line and wait can get long.

But the service was fast, our sandwich come in last of 5 minutes. The food it is great and tasty. I extremely advise to order the... More

This is my absolute favorite lunch or dinner place in Marin. The flavor is phenomenal, each and every thing on the menu is delicious. You usually sit with other groups at your table so be prepared for that; but it is such a great experience. Sol food is always crowded and lively!

Came here when visited a few years ago, still very flavorful. Very very tender ribs, no sauce needed!!! Also had black beans and rice and iced coconut latte. Delicious!!! However, the long lines tell you that you need to eat here. Worth the wait.

Absolutely delicious sandwiches! The meat was flavored all the way through. I know "beans and rice" sounds boring, but it was SO good! Being of South American descent, it was like family cooking. Parking is a little tricky, and there's a line, and it was even raining, but it was SO delicious! Homemade hot sauce on the table was awesome.

There is almost always a line outside. That says a lot. I love the melt in your mouth ribs and the plantain chips. The soup is rich and tasty.

We're always very happy with the food we get delivered from Sol Food. It may not be fast, especially on weekends, but they're usually accurate in their estimated delivery time, and the food arrives hot.

OK, I realize I'm in the minority so with that said, I have to say that I've never been fully satisfied at this restaurant. I keep trying different menu items but I keep getting disappointed. Service is good but the food is getting old. I doubt I'd go back anymore. But here's the deal, I've had catered food from Our... More

On the way back home from dropping off people at SFO we decided to give Sol Food a try. Maybe my expectations were too high based on all the good reviews but our first visit last night was just ok at best. Waited about 10 minutes in line which actually was perfect as it gave us time to look over... More
