3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 NEW

We've been coming here for years and it seems that it's just not the same. The restaurant wasn't that busy and it seemed to take some time to get our food. The food is good though. The chips aren't anything special and the salsa tasted like any jar I can buy at the store. The place also is getting a... More

We were excited to eat here, thinking that it would be like some of the New Mexican restaurants we have visited. The salsa was more chopped tomatoes and cumin, the "soup" was watered down beef broth... More

We descended on this place with 14 adults and children shortly after arriving in town for a week at Rainbow Lake Resort. We were seated in the enclosed outdoor patio, with a fountain in the center. The little ones enjoyed throwing pennies into the fountain, while the adults enjoyed Margaritas and taking pictures. Good food service, although the bill took... More

Pretty expensive, not for the family traveler unless you have a six figure income. Mexican food nothing special, nice waitress.

This place is my favorite one in Buena Vista. The cheese dip, the pachuga and the margaritas are unforgettable! The outdoor seating is quite delightful. I always enjoy my visit here and the servers are wonderful. LOVE LOVE LOVE

The food was authentic Mexican not Tex Mex. One of the best places I had ever ate in a long time. Our server was very friendly and told us about each of the sauces .We will be back

Casa del sol creates great homemade Mexican food - I like the freshly made guacamole and the chicken enchiladas have amazing flavor. The patio/courtyard is perfect when the weather is nice

Casa Del Sol has been in business in Buena Vista forever! The Pechuga Suisa, which is chicken, cheese and sour cream in a tortilla baked to perfection, is wonderful. It is $10.95 without the chopped green chiles on it, including a small salad. My husband always gets the seafood enchilada. They have a good Maragrita and Mexican beer selection. If... More
