A good review for a Maine Mexican Restaurant by a Texan

It took me a couple of trips to Sunfire to really appreciate it. First of all, the chips and salsa are appetizers rather than complementary, which seems blasphemous. Also, they need a really good chili con queso. Probably most restaurants need a really good chili con queso! Instead of the... read more

We were traveling in the area and were hungry for Mexican food (make that QUALITY Mexican food) and a quick online search turned up two Mexican restaurants close by. Oddly, both close at 8PM (must be a Maine thing). At first blush, "Sunfire" was a warm and charming place with a decent menu. The waitress was pleasant enough and our... More

A friend and I visited a couple weeks ago. The margaritas were tasty...a bit too sweet but the glass was very shallow and didn't hold much at all....the food was waaayyy over priced for the quality and portions. I was shocked that we had to pay almost $5 for a small basket of chips and salsa. That is usually free... More

We went there at 6:45 as we walked in we stood there for about 5 minutes. There was only one waitress for entire restaurant. There were about 10-13 tables seated. Once the owner sat us we were ignored for 15 minutes and within that time the owner went outside took the flag down and flipped the sign to close. I... More

Really great food. Nice atmosphere. They have been here for 12 years. Prices are higher than we are used to across the USA, but the value is there. Give them a try. We are glad we did!

Everything about this place had me smiling. Very well decorated, EXCELLENT service, and delicious food! I was amazed by how much I loved the salad that a got (although now I can't remember what kind it was). The waitress was very personable and always made sure we had what we needed. We actually saw her in the grocery store a... More

Well if you love Mexican food I wouldn't suggest this place. It was just ok. Server was very nice and drinks were pretty good. Homemade tacos are better.

We stopped in for a light lunch after visiting the Farnsworth museum, and were overall happy with our experience. There was only one server for the entire restaurant (the gentleman behind the counter didn't seem to be helping her at all), although she was working hard and very nice.It just made for a bit slower service. The lunch specials were... More
