I could eat at this place every day during happy hour. The street shrimp tacos and house margaritas are excellent. Outdoor seating is available but during the season those seats fill up quickly. The guacamole with homemade chips, my mouth is drooling as I'm typing its so good. In the heart of downtown Fountain Hills, another place to visit with... More

We were looking for something near our Fountain Hills hotel...something different and quaint. We struck gold at Sofrita! It's a small restaurant, with a great patio area, complete with tiki-style patio umbrellas over each table. We started with the Elote ("street corn") and freshly made guacamole. Both were delicious! And, the mojitos...one of the best I've ever had! For our... More

I've been at a conference in Fountain Hills this year, which has been catered by Sofrita. They have served breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and potatoes with extras that was delicious. The lunch both days were amazing and I can't wait to bring my family to the restaurant sometime for dinner. I've enjoyed the baked chicken, veggies, orzo, pasta,... More

For the aftermath of your morning morning stroll try this for breakfast or lunch. Sit outside if the sun is not overbearing and your dog is welcome. Pleasant place to watch the morning strollers. Bacon and eggs for breakfast and maybe the dog will get a snack of bacon from your server.

A local contact suggested we have a late lunch here, which we all enjoyed. Green pork soft tacos were irresistible, so all three of us ordered them. They were tasty, imaginative, and filling, with plenty of pork, veggies, green sauce on the side, and a sprinkling of pepitas. Fresh iced tea and house-made lemonade were terrific. All the surfaces inside... More

I've eaten here a few times. I can't think of anything that was "to die for" as far as the food is concerned. The mango mojito or maybe it's a mango margarita is freaking amazing though and I would come back just for that.

My coworkers and I met here the other evening to enjoy cocktails and tapas. Everything was delicious and service was great. We are planning to return to try other items on the menu that we just did not have room for. My favorite so far was the shrimp taco. Even the dessert was awesome! Great restaurant and worth the trip!

This little place was an unexpected find- it's tiny indoor seating area was packed and everyone's food looked amazing. It's not the usual Mexican place - no free chips and salsa - but the tacos are WOW!!! We got the ropas tacos, which is shredded beef - presentation was trendy, and the taco fillings were too - the fried potatoes... More
