“Good food, prices and very convenient!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

If you are staying at the Holiday Inn Express, this restaurant is in the same parking lot area. The food is pretty good and the service is fast. They were able to handle a large group (45!) with a few days notice. Not all the waitresses speak English very well, but if things are getting lost in translation there is always someone working that can help out. I would oh back!

“Great food! Very good 'Rita's! But.....”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We pulled in because it was there and we were hungry!

The margaritas were very good! The chips and salsa were fine. Our order was delivered quickly and the fajitas were great! But the ambiance is, well, odd.

Truthfully, it's like a Denny's. No atmosphere, you won't linger, but you'll be fed quickly and on your way. Sometimes, there's nothing wrong with grab and go, you know?

“Good Quality Mexican Food”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Good to Average+ food with very good service by very pleasant staff. Had no complaints with the food quality, nothing outstanding, just well prepared and very tasty fare. We have a few very good Mex restaurants in Coeur d'Alene so our expectations are bit above Taco Bell or Del Taco and this little place did just fine! We had only a few nights to try different places on this short visit, so the many recommendations from locals to try the many Mexican places in town were difficult to choose! We tried El Sol and walked out full and pleased with our meal and no disappointments. When traveling, that is a sign of a good establishment!

“Adequate but you can do better if you want Mexican food in Wenatchee”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

I ate here with a large group including several children. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was adequate, except for my son's cheese quesadilla that had a burnt flour tortilla and loads of disgusting, goopy cheese (seriously, how do you mess up a cheese quesadilla?). The margaritas were nice. The next night we ate at La Fuente and it was a lot better!
