“A Good Quality Restaurant without Fanfare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

There is nothing particularly exciting about this restaurant or its location. However, the food is good and fresh, the place is very clean, and the staff are friendly and attentive. I wish the owners would gravitate away from the standard American sandwiches and salads and towards have some specialty entrees each evening. It has the potential of moving evolving from being a good small town bistro to something special. The wine is good, but glasses are a little expensive. Better to get a bottle since Maryland allows you to take the wine home if you don't finish it.

I don't fault the owners for being a little conservative and focusing on American standard fare since Hagerstown, Maryland, does not have a particularly sophisticated restaurant-going population. Unfortunately, anything the restaurant would do to become more innovative would likely be met by public rejection.

“Really enjoyed this restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Our granddaughter did a great job picking this restaurant via Trip Advisor reviews while our family was in the area visiting Antietam. Something for everyone on the menu. Delicious food, good presentation, and service was very good. Good prices as well.

“Great place! But don't expect Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

This is a wonderful place. The name has Mexican all over it. It's defiantly not Mexican. The food is delicious. Worth every penny!

“Fresh food, great service, consistent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I visit Cafe Del Sol / Hagerstown once a month for a business lunch. The food is always very tasty, fresh, and served at the correct temperature. The wait staff understands the menu, listens, offers good suggestions, is attentive, but obtrusive.
Soups are great! I love the tomato bisque. They offer a wide variety of salads. I have enjoyed the California, Mediterranean, Mandarin, and Del Sol. If you like gourmet pizzas then you will enjoy the selection they offer. My customer and I enjoy this restaurant because the food is very good and fresh. They have a lot of healthy options, and the service is great! I highly recommend.
