I come here rarely even though it is very close to where I live. I decided to drop in because I was looking for Mexican fare. Sat at the bar. Usually the bartenders provided the best service. Apparently this bartender missed that memo. I ordered a drink and asked for a menu. Drink came and 10 minutes later the menu.... More

One of the better places to eat in Olney Maryland. The service is impeccable and the staff is very friendly. The last time I went in, I had the Lomo Saltado and it was wonderful.

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.
