“One of the best restaurants in Palo Alto”

Palo Alto Sol Restaurant
Ranked #60 of 365 Restaurants in Palo Alto
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 26, 2008

Palo Alto Sol is a local's favorite for all the best reasons - it's a lovely place with warm, excellent service and always-delicious food! It's "authentic" Mexican, not Cal-Mex, and one of the few reasonably-priced restaurants in super-expensive Palo Alto. Try the family's mole sauce or special cream-chile sauce specific to their home region (or go 1/2 and 1/2 and try them both!) There are three "Sol" restaurants, two are located in Mountain View, owned by this family and this is my favorite of the three but they are all good.

Great tequila, but the server kept hitting on my date.

The food is really, really good. Great fresh salsas. I can't decide which of the three salsas are my favorite.
It is a busy restaurant so I understand the people that worried about the service, but I was there on a busy wednesday night and the service was great--very attentive. Would definitely go again!
