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

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

This place still makes their own empanadas and tortillas. Great breakfast burritos, chorizo is nice and spicy, beans are delicious. The place is small and packed on saturdays for breakfast, not open on Sunday. My favorite is their pineapple empanada. You always get chips and salsa with your breakfast, warning salsa is addicting. Just an FYI, they do close early.

Fantastic Mexican food. I love this place. Service is very friendly and the food is as good as can be found. The shrimp burrito is fantastic. The sauces and tortillas are the best. GET THERE!
