My friend and I took our 3 teenage girls here on a weekday for lunch. It wasn't busy and we had time to peruse the menu board which unfortunately didn't do much to explain what exactly each menu item was. We ended up ordering some shredded beef and carnita burritos, chicken tacos, and one "killer burro" with shredded beef. We... More

We ordered two breakfast burritos for takeout. The portions were generous, but overpriced compared to all of the other places in the area. We had to stand in the vestibule and wait for neatly 30 minutes for our food. I doubt we will return.

We got takeout burritos in the early morning. Had to wait about 15 minutes. Food was great. Super bueno burrito was very good as well as my boyfriend's breakfast burrito with eggs and an assortment of meats. This place serves Mexican food along with bakery items. Prices are not cheap.

Went here for a business meeting. Parking and seating is limited. It is a basic Mexican menu. Ordered a carne asada burrito and apple empanada. The burrito was fresh and delicious. The empanada was extremely tasty. If you eat in you get chips and salsa. Service was excellent and helpful. I will personally make this a regular stop.

My grandmother and mother were both raised on a ranch near Saltillo, Mexico and this place shares their recipes. Of course, I love everything here and at their sister restaurnat El Zocolo! They have the best Mexican pastry, pan dulce, in Arizona. My favorites are the cookies though because again both flavors, the wedding cookies and the orange cookies are... More

This place is one to visit. The tortillas are fresh and home made so as my daughter says, " Mexican food is all about the tortilla". Fresh is best and this place is is definitely fresh. I order to go as I work about 2 miles away and with other Mexican restaurants closer I choose this one as its the... More

We've gone here for a few years now. The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. I've tried a bunch of different dishes, and have never been disappointed. You always see the same welcoming faces. The first time we took young kids, I was apologetic about the mess that small fingers make with rice. They joked about how it's... More

Also the staff that works their is just so friendly, it might even be the owner I'm not sure but either was every time I go they... More

I’ve driven by El Sol Mexican Cafe & Bakery over a couple of hundred times and never thought about going into the place. After stopping in recently, I’ll admit I’ve made a mistake and should of stopped into the place much sooner. From the outside, it doesn’t look like anything special, it looks like a whole in the wall, but... More
