“This truck will surprise you-”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Permanently parked outside the entrance to Sun Bay, they have the best pulled pork sandwich on the island. Empanadas are excellent as well. Very generous portions. Beware, as previous poster mentioned, they have a sign that says, "we are open until 2, or until the food runs out".

“amazing food near lots of beaches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were hungry and tired after a long morning at the beach and sol food was perfect for lunch. It's located at the entrance of the wildlife refuge. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. I'ts the best food we have ever had out of a food truck! we will go back again.

“Best food truck on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Tried Sol Food before going to La Plata Beach. Had the pulled pork sandwich, pork carnitas. Food is excellent, and the portions are large. My only (small) critique is that the hours are somewhat unpredictable, since the food can run out early.

“Just an average food truck”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We tried this truck and the one in front of it, La Taina. If you like to try real Puerto Rican food and not only sandwiches, I think you shouldn't choose this one. The pastelilos were OK but not as good as the ones from La Taina, and they don't have hot platters. It is still a good option if you are leaving the beaches but do not expect to get the Caribbean flavor.

“delicious and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Pulled pork with a pickled red cabbage was great. HUGE sandwich for $10. Opens at 11:00 - 3:00 or until sold out. Don't miss the brownies for dessert!
