Stopped for lunch and found the food to be right up there, service was over-the-top and price was right. Hard to be disappointed here. Chips and salsa had a nice fresh flavor.

Been driving by this place for a few years and we finally decided to stop and give it a try. Food was very good and the menu choices are extensive and interesting - I had a pregnant burrito. Decent food prices and happy hour drink options too. And the decor is fun and flavorful.

We had a farewell lunch at El Senor Sol. We were all very happy for the food. Portions were very generous and prices are very convenient. They serve burritos, burgers and a large variety of mexican and text mex food.

I ordered a large dos equis which came in a huge mug. It took some effort to get the whole thing down. I ordered the divorcidas enchiladas, so I could sample both the red and green chilis. The red chili was flavorful with medium heat. The green chili was very spicy and about 5 hours later gave me a bout... More

No complaints but not exactly stellar. The food tasted good but the drink prices were outrageous. I would recommend this restaurant but be warned about the expensive margaritas that were not that good.

The carnitas are the best I have had in years. My boyfriend had the taco/burrito/enchilada combo and he raved about all three. The service was excellent and the drinks were good and strong. Prices are reasonable. What more could you want?

I've been here a couple times. The food was good to very good. The décor is typical Mexican restaurant. The chicken enchiladas are nice. The salsa is a bit on the spicy side - nice. Good service. Fair pricing.
