“Best Mexican in town”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

El Sol is a newer hot spot in Cape Girardeau right across the street from the university. The renovated building has a lot of charm and there is ample off street parking. The wait staff is very friendly and there is a warm Mexican hospitality to them. The food is the best Mexican food in town and the price is still reasonable. If you are looking for Mexican food, this is the place.

“Nice addition to crowded Mexican restaurant market”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Newly opened. Familiar employee faces from other Mexican restaurants in Cape. Food is good, with some different menu items than the competition. Overall very good.

“Favorite new place in Cape Girardeau!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Locally owned and operated this wonderful Mexican place provides a casual atmosphere, great food, friendly service with a smile, and a family friendly environment on Broadway - the main street in downtown Cape. Priced just right the menu is very broad with selections, mostly traditional but many very non-traditional. Personally I love their soups - chicken, shrimp, and on the weekends they offer pazole. Be sure and try the table side guacamole served by Luis with flair! Yum!!

Co-Owner Antonio is always ready to greet you! Be sure to tell him Judy says "Hi!"

“Great Mexican food! Great service!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I always enjoy the food, service, and drinks at this restaurant. Great place to eat and relax! It's close to the university for before or after ballgames. The servers are always there ready to seat and serve. Great margaritas! Try "Diane's favorite" salad. Can't wait to sit on the patio when the weather gets nice.
