We as a family decided to go for lunch yesterday to this terrible place. the restaurant was not half full and although we had a reservation and on time, we had to wait for over 15 minutes for tables to be put together for us. After being seated and looking at menu we ordered food at 2:51 PM. Waited for... More

There is a certain romance between food and the palate. Nothing is as mouth watering as the sound of the sizzle, or the aroma when a waiter passes by with a tray. It's a bummer when it's for the other table. This time I ordered what they had. The Fajita. I ordered the chicken and steak fajita. As the waiter... More

Well prepared food. Friendly staff. My favorite is the Salmon Parilla; a tender salmon fillet topped with shrimp, scallops and a tasty sauce, served with brocolli, potatoes, and black beans.

We frequent Sol Azteca and go there for many of our special occasions. The food is consistently excellent, the service is attentive and friendly and ask for Fredis (Freddy) when you go. THe bar makes excellent marguerita's and with a heavy pour. also -- don't leave with out trying the tres leches--best I have ever had.

My husband and I eat here as often as we can, and we're never disappointed. There are so many reasons to eat here: the bustling efficiency, the fast and friendly service, the amazing portions and tastes, and the fact that even if there is a line at the door, waiting for a booth or table is never a hardship.

We are regulars at Sol Azteca and always find the food to be outstanding. One surprise is their salmon dishes. Something you would not expect to find at a tex-mex restaurant. All of their platters are great as well as their frajitas. Service is top notch.

I have eaten here several times. The food is fresh, and you can get things that are not traditional fare. Their seafood soup is a winner, as are most of their fish dishes. Fajitas are good as well. Service is fine.
