This Cuban restaurant has really good food, but the service is really slow. Reservations don't mean you will get in on time either. The restaurant is pretty small and there aren't a lot of tables. With that said, I would still go back there to eat. The Cuban food is good and different than you get most places. Go to... More

This was my second visit to Sol and it was so disappointing. Quite boring to not good. The Steak chimchurri was very overdone with minuscule serving of the chimchurri. The Loaded Tamale appetizer was tasteless and cold with no meat. The loaded Nachos weren't loaded at all. The waitress was clueless although sweet. I'd personally rather have knowledgable and helpful.... More

This restaurant is located down a short, charming alley. When you step inside, it's a delightful surprise of ambiance. The restaurant serves Cuban food. We had the black bean soup, salads with one of their homemade dressings, and then the entrees. Also, since it was Thursday night, I had a sangria. The sangria was so delicious! The black bean soup...

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.

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.

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... More

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... More

Visiting Sol took me back to one of my favorite restaurants in the Caribbean, El Metropol. The Cuban bread was authentic and delicious we ordered the Ropa Vieja with rice and black beans. Amazing!! The maduros were sweet and delicious. To finish my friend had the tres leches and I ordered the flan. It was heavenly with a nice cortado... More

My alumni friends and I headed up to Sol for brunch on Saturday and had the greatest time! Our server was Dakota and she was so sweet. We'll definitely be coming back every time we head back to Athens. The food was awesome, but my favorite part was hanging out with Dora. She had us cracking up and made our... More
