“I dream of Sol Food”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

In San Rafael there are a few places that have this kind of consistant quality and service. Also the options for delivery, call ahead pick up, or take your chances showing up. There can be a line out the door at any time of day. They are that good.

“Fresh and tasty”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Just try it! It's delicious, it's fresh, it's unpretentious. Yes, there's always a line at meal times but it's a great excuse for just stopping the rush and visiting with your friends while waiting. And it's well worth it!

“Good lunch spot”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Informal environment and good food at a reasonable price. Especially like the shrimp choices and plantains. If you don't like sitting next to strangers you may not like the ambiance.

“Satisfying food, some waiting”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I liked their food a lot. The San Rafael restaurant always has a line to get in, so be prepared to wait outside. You most probably will have to share a table, so don't go here if you need to have a very personal conversation with someone. The Mill Valley site is really for takeout.

You can't go wrong with the food. You order, pay and sit down--they bring it to you.

“Salty and fatty and that's about it”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Wish I could love this place, but, the reason the food tastes "good" is that it is loaded with salt and fat. It may be that they have added more veggies but all they had when I went was salad greens and fried plantains, which of course is actually a fruit behaving like a squash.
