Best mexican food I've ever had and the service was incredible! I highly recommend...I have no idea what happened with an other poor service review but we experienced top notch from Decca...his first week on the job and he's great!

So to start we were the ONLY people in the restaurant, not only did they give poor service but also they could not understand why we were furious. After requesting margaritas twice, the margaritas came at the end of the meal. Half the meal came out while 2 people in our group of 4 sat and waited 20 for our... More

Worried when I found out El sol closed. We live 40 miles away. Javier is still worth the trip. I used to have work parties there. Now I can again !

I have been there twice and it is correct - the name has changed recently to Javier's Hacienda. It is unfortunate that the restaurant is located a little away from the main area Downtown but it is definitely worth it. The food has an excellent flavor. I can still taste the incredible guacamole in my mouth... Ingredients taste fresh and... More

So, my wife and I love Mexican and just recently moved to Indianapolis. This was our first date night out with kids at home with a sitter. As we were driving there, my wife was a little uneasy about the location and honestly in the back of my head I was half wondering if our car would be ok for... More

Not in the best neighborhood but well worth the trip. This is a family owned, real mexican (not tex-mex) restaurant. The service is incredible and the food is so, so good! We've gone here for special occasions often over the years and it is one of our favorite places

Good Mexican food at very good prices. I loved the fresh-made guacamole. We saw the waiter make it and it was perfect blend of heat and taste. Definitely getting that again. The chips and salsa are good. Portions are on the large size so come hungry or plan to take some home.

If you want to get past the typical tacos and burritos, El Sol's is the place to go. An Indy landmark since about 1974, do not let the somewhat plain exterior fool you, inside it is a fiesta. Try the Bistek Ranchero. I have been going here for over 20 years and have a hard time getting anything else.
