This could be so good

We stopped in for dinner and it wasn't busy. The food sounded good and was OK...not great, but OK. This little place would be fine if you like smaller portions and the service was very good.

This unique restaurant has been in business for over 40 years. My family has been visiting it on our annual trips to BV for the last 35 years. It is a little bit different which is why it is such treat. The red enchilada sauce is New Mexico style and the Carne Asada is amazing. The #4 with a cheese... More

The food was fantastic. They ran out of queso, so we didn't get to try that, but the chicken enchiladas were great. The shrimp quesadillas were also fantastic and full of flavor. I had mine in a flour tortilla, as being from Texas, it's the only thing that makes since for a quesadilla...not corn as the menu said. Unlike a... More

I really wanted to like this place. Thirty plus years in business means you must be doing something right! My hubby had the large taco with the special meat (hamburger). It wasn't large or special. I had the chile rellenos and it was better, but not great. The wait staff was good, but it just wasn't enough to compensate for... More

There are about 100 (good) things to say about this place! Great authentic Mexican food, no tex-mex. Casa Del Sol was wonderful! The waitress was just a gem. She was so kind and friendly! It's rare to find such exceptional service these days! The food was great! I loved the old charming decor to the place, but sitting on the... More

I haven't had "Mexican" food like this since the 70s. Hard taco shells with a chili beef mix etc remind me more of an American idea of Mexican food than anything authentic. But the family is lovely and the combination of an old log cabin and a courtyard with a tiered fountain are great. Too bad about one bland taco... More

The place is alright. The servers were alright. Now for the bad, This place is a good place if you want to open a very romantic French style restaurant maybe a nice upscale steakhouse restaurant. However it is hard to knock 40 years of service to a community, but the menu had roughly 20 or so items. The downfall of... More

Awful food, awful service and we tried the place twice just in case the first time was a fluke. Apparently it wasn't, because the experience did not get any better. We love Mexican, but because there is a better place with better service and food in Buena Vista, we will be giving that place our business and not Casa del... More

We've been there four or five times over the last couple years. The first few times, the food was more authentic Mexican. The last visit, I wondered if they changed the menu or the chef. It was still good, but not as good as I remembered.
