Since the early days of being down in the hotel I have calling Sol Azteca as a favorite among Mexican Restaurants. The part that draws me in is the relationship I have built over the years with the staff. The important part the food is great, I've never had a bad meal and often I have been in a mood... More

Went for lunch after seeing the reviews thought it might be worth a try. I will say that the salsa was very fresh tasting but unfortunately that was the highlight of the entire meal,everything else was simply average. The fajitas were lacking in meat and very heavy on big chunks of tomato. The queso dip was bland absent of any... More

I love the food at this place. Their camerones rancheros is outstanding. All the traditional foods like tacos, enchiladas, etc. are all good. Their rice is better than most...no clue why?? The salsa is so fresh and delicious!

Sat down and almost instantly the waiter got our drink order. Within a minute drinks were on the table along with hot chips and some great... More

Actually take a look at the menu, there's so much more than just the normal burritos, etc you find at every other mexican restaurant in the world. Some of my favorites include the shrimp cocktail, chicken noodle soup, whole fish, chili's poblano stuffed w/ potato and the fajita nachos! Always my first stop as soon as I get to visit... More

I tried Sol Azteca after a long time of being away. The food was average, nothing that made me say "wow". Service was good.

I visit here weekly. Great frozen margaritas, which is how I rate Mex Restaurants. Everything is good, with excellent service.

We really like the chips and salsa to start our meal, the food is always hot and has great favor and presentation. The service is always there but not rushed or intrusive. Prices are in line with other resturants in our area, Good American Mexican food.
