Sad to see this business shut down, Alberto served up some good food. I have heard rumors that a new owner will soon reopen this location under a new name.

Not a fancy place, by any means but El Sol delivers a hearty, flavorful and generous meal at a very reasonable price. Alberto and wife Brandy keep an assortment good tequilas in stock, but not much else. They do have a smattering of beer and...More

We thought El Sol was fabulous. The ambience is friendly and the restaurant has attractive decor. The co-owner served us and she was delightful. The menu choices were unusual- I had Hannah's garlic chicken fajitas. The blackberry daquiri was tasty. We will definitely return.

We are frequent patrons and clearly view El Sol the best Mexican food in the area. It is a family restaurant and you may be served by mom, the wife or the son. Alberto, dad, cooks but comes out to say "hola" to folks.

Living and staying in a small tourist town, it amazes me the quality of local owned restaurants, rather than a chain or a franchise, this food was excellent and great value, Parking not so good.
