“Really tasty, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

The food was delicious with good spice and heat. We had a variety of dishes,. seafood, beef, chicken, and pasta. All were flavorful. Large beer selection for those who partake. The location is off the main street with a very comfortable, casual feel. Wait staff was friendly and service was good.

“Stellar food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

The signature mohitos are amazing - get the pitcher...you're welcome. The pork/mac-n-cheese was excellent and the iced Dirty Chai was a perfect ending to the meal.

“Best Mac and Cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Sol has a very intimate and appealing atmosphere down a quiet alley in uptown Athens. I have friends who are big fans of brunch here but I much prefer lunch and dinner. The ropa vieja is delicious (I tried that in a rice bowl at lunch),
but the best and most popular (among my friends) is the BBQ pork Mac and cheese. The pork is served on top of the Mac smothered with a sweet BBQ sauce. The Mac and cheese is gooey and delicious. Service is typically fast and friendly. There is rarely a wait for a table.

“Sol Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you are in Athens, OH, give Sol a try for lunch or dinner. They are a small Cuban-influenced restaurant. Their menu isn't huge but everything I have had has been excellent. They source local ingredients as much as possible. The Cuban sandwich on their in-house Cuban bread is the best I have had. A little gem in a side alley that will bring some Cuban sun into your life.
