Good food, prices and very convenient!

If you are staying at the Holiday Inn Express, this restaurant is in the same parking lot area. The food is pretty good and the service is fast. They were able to handle a large group (45!) with a few days notice. Not all the waitresses speak English very well, but if things are getting lost in... read more

I love the food and the staff at El Sol. The salsa is very tasty and hot. And the portions are quite large, which is fine with me because I will have leftovers for another day!

We found this small restaurant in the side of the highway after a long drive and were looking forward to a good dinner. We were very disappointed in our dining experience here. The staff was friendly enough, but the food was nothing great. My enchiladas were fine, not fantastic, not disgusting. My husband ordered a Camarones dish which was described... More

This is a fairly good place. Wenatchee has A LOT of Mexican food and it just doesn't stand up to it's competition.

We pulled in because it was there and we were hungry! The margaritas were very good! The chips and salsa were fine. Our order was delivered quickly and the fajitas were great! But the ambiance is, well, odd. Truthfully, it's like a Denny's. No atmosphere, you won't linger, but you'll be fed quickly and on your way. Sometimes, there's nothing... More

Good to Average+ food with very good service by very pleasant staff. Had no complaints with the food quality, nothing outstanding, just well prepared and very tasty fare. We have a few very good Mex restaurants in Coeur d'Alene so our expectations are bit above Taco Bell or Del Taco and this little place did just fine! We had only... More

I ate here with a large group including several children. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was adequate, except for my son's cheese quesadilla that had a burnt flour tortilla and loads of disgusting, goopy cheese (seriously, how do you mess up a cheese quesadilla?). The margaritas were nice. The next night we ate at La Fuente and... More
