Charming restaurant, delicious food, good drinks and a professional server. We enjoyed the guacamole & chips as an appetizer with the house margarita...mmm :) Dinner was very good too. My husband had Lobster Enchiladas and I had Pollo Costeno-topped with spicy chorizo. Both dinners were tasty and very filling. We enjoyed trying El Sol, it is a little expensive, but... More

We made reservations at El Sol for ourselves and 10 friends at the recommendation from another friend (the one recommending unfortunately couldn't join us). We parked a block away in a lot so we didn't have to worry about street parking. We arrived at the exact time of reservation and our table was ready and waiting for us. We were... More

One of the better dinning experiences in Harrisburg. Nice bar with great Margarita's (Margarita Fresca is the best). Interesting menu. Love the homemade guacamole. Especially love the lobster enchilada's! If you love Mexican food this place is a must!

This is a charming restaurant, on a comfortable corner of the city, with delicious food, drinks and professional staff. The decor is muy mexicano tipico, with a little surprise bursts of star lighting and tucked away booths. They have even been flexible enough to entertain high school field trip students without much fuss and confusion. Each person was treated as... More

If you are looking for a place with very good food and pleasant and friendly service then be sure to go to El Sol's when you are downtown in Harrisburg. It's one of the very best Mexican restaurants that I have eaten in!

I love bringing my friends here! Every time the food is delicious and the service is great! Everyone that works there is so friendly. Everything is great here but my favorites are the enchiladas with the rice and beans on the side. It is kind of a small restaurant so I would definitely recommend reservations.

Four of us had lunch here, and every dish was excellent. We shared the guacamole appetizer, which was in a chunky style and tangy with onion and lime juice. Salsa and chips also were first rate. A lunch special of fried egg on shredded chicken and taco slices was something different. Dining companions praised the carnitas and pulled pork enchiladas.... More
