My recent experiences at US Mexican restaurants have been boring until this week when a friend took me to Plaza Del Sol. I was surprised by the wonderful, fresh flavor of my dish, loaded w rice, beef, cheese and some veggies. I cleaned my plate like a child working on a sucker. I can't wait to take my family there...

Yummy chips and salsa! Nacho app. Was very crunchy and cheesy good. We had the shrimp casa. W/ guacamole salad. It was delicious. It came with belle peppers, onions and cheese inside. Staff was friendly. Beverages were cold :) it was a great time.

My first experience at Plaza Del Sol was a good one. The food and service were both very good. We will definitely be back for more.

I really like chicken, but sometimes I just have to change it up. Today I ordered the shrimp plaza quessadilla with a quacamole side salad. It may become my favorite meal at Plaza Del Sol. I suggest you try it too.

It had been over a month, since we ate there last, and I wish we had not waited so long; queso was good; tortillas were hot; salsa was fresh, and the Sol Special was very good

We arrived at 9:45 and asked if the kitchen was still open. The staff told us yes. We were served chips and salsa quickly. The food was terrible. How can you mess up a cheese quesadilla? They did! The margaritas were not very good at all! Disappointment. Disappointed we chose to eat here. It used to be good my husband... More

This used to be one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. It's nice inside, clean, and friendly staff. But the menu has shrunk to just the basics and prices have gone way up. I don't like paying 5 star prices for a 2 star restaurant.

We have been eating there about every three weeks for more than twenty years. We enjoyed it so much that we always brought our guests to our favorite Mexican restaurant. I'm sorry to say our last visit may be our last. I was very disappointed with the new menu. All of our favorites meals have been removed and the one... More

This is a place that we have gone to for 5 years. Prices were great, service is good, its not fine dining but somewhere to go and relax. I would normally rate this place a 4, now it's down to a 2 with the exception of our favorite waitress. She has been spot on for years and we always request... More
