Stopped by for lunch. We had fish and shrimp tacos. Both were OK but could have used a touch of lime or pickled onion or something. The surprise was the Mexican Hot chocolate which is for 21 and over.

cute little restaurant with dining inside or outside along the Avenue. Tacos are to die for as well as their brueschetta, great value on both items. Happy hour is nice when you can sit outside and have a margarita and snack!

The Latin/Puerto Rican food at Sofrita is delicious, no matter what you order. My favorite is the Firehouse Fish Tacos, and they make the best guacamole I've ever had at a restaurant. It's a great place to eat while strolling around the fountain.

Visited the restaurant several times last year. Excited to go back and were completely disappointed. Starting with the drinks ( mostly ice and soda, even with choosing the more expansive sangria). The menu is HEAVY on battered food, such as the impossibly greasy cod fritters....More
