Good food, bad service.

The waitress said they were shorthanded, Ok, I can deal with that, we weren't in a hurry. The food was good, I cannot complain about that. The part that ticks me off is that the waitress added her own generous tip to my credit card bill for our table of four! It was posted,as most places do, about... read 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.

Buena Vista is not a very commercial town and we stopped by one restaurant, viewed it's fried menu items and went down the street to Casa del Sol. It is a small place with three rooms serving somewhat traditional mexican food. There is a small courtyard that offers service in the warmer months. It is clean and brightly decorated. The... More

We had been to this restaurant in the past and wanted to return out of nostalgia. We called them at 6:30 to ask how late they'd be open and we were told 8:00 p.m. We got ourselves together and arrived at 7:00, to a closed restaurant and a rude hostess telling us to go elsewhere. No problem there.

The service was absolutely brilliant! And the food was just as amazing! Thanks for the fuel for the drive to wolf creek!
