“Burgers and Tex-Mex”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Sometimes you fancy a burger so this was our thinking. Its located down beside the old supermarket and Museu Romantic.
The restaurant itself is very nice looking. The menu features plenty of Mexican food as well as burgers and standard American fare.
We were the first table so needless to say the service was great. We shared a couple of combo starters which were very filling.
The BBQ burger was tasty. The fries are grand- nothing special. Everyone had different mains and we all enjoyed them except for my friend who had the steak. He thought it was a bit gristly and tough.
SoCa is great if you want something different to tapas and sandwiches. It's fairly reasonable and they do have a three course menu for around €25 if you're hungry.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Located in a back street but we sat outside and it was lovely to watch the world go by. My husband had the chilli con carne starter which was lovely and tasted very authentic, I had the mozzarella rolls, lovely, followed by the curry quesadillas , I know it sounds strange but they tasted fabulous, my husband had the burger which was nice. The mojitos here are truly superb, will return here without a doubt on our next visit .

“Nice restaurant but average 'American' food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

The menu is sort of American but really a mix with what Americans call Mexican dishes (Tex-Mex in Texas). It is different from the usual menus in Sitges, so for a change in fare, perhaps worth a try. The decor is classy and the waitstaff was friendly and efficient.

My Newport Beach hamburger was decent size on a toasted bun. The meat was tender. My main issue was that it was too salty. One should not get a main "flavor" of salt from a hamburger. The fries were OK but thinner and smaller than, say, McDonalds (definitely out of the bag and not home made). For ~$13, you can get a really good hamburger and fries where I live in California but this was not close. I didn't try any of the Mexican food, so I can't judge that.

There is a small outdoor terrace on the street but unless you can put up with exhaust fumes, noise and cigarette smoke, the quieter indoor tables are a better choice. The prix fix menu is 26 euros, which is a good buy if you are really hungry.

“Really wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

I really can't speak highly enough about SoCa. I'd expected okay Texmex food and so so service but it far exceeded my expectations on both counts. Set just off the main strip, the restaurant has a cool modern feel decked in Californian imagery. There's an extensive menu of essentially Texmex food and cocktails. We both went for what turned out to be huge starters of patatas followed by mixed fajitas. The food was really tasty and well cooked, and the service friendly and efficient.

“Make time for SoCA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Great burgers, burritos and other Californian favourites.

Visited on a very full peak season night and we needed to add more people to our table which they gladly accommodated for us.

Prices very affordable, decor and welcome great.
