For our family this is one of our favorite spots to eat in Whitman County. They are impeccable with the quality of their food, cleanliness of their restaurant and their professionalism. They are well known in the area and well known for their recipes. I worked in Colfax and I am very familiar with their restaurant. If we had company... More

This was a surprise, not just finding a Mexican restaurant out here, but finding a great restaurant. The atmosphere was great and the food even better. The chips and salsa can make or break your experience and they come out swinging with fresh warm chips and nice homemade salsa. A bit runny and not very hot but still fresh flavors... More

One of the few places in Colfax open at night. The menu offers the usual range of Mexican dishes with the inevitable refried beans, tortillas and rice, but there are one or two more unusual choices. Large portions. Wine by the glass. Obviously popular with locals.

I ate here one night when I was in Colfax. I found the Arroz con Pollo bland and watery with a small amount of rice so the liquid was sloshing around the plate. There was a decent amount of chicken. The tortillas were OK. I might eat here again but would probably choose another dish. I was seated quickly and... More

Sol Vallarta is a great little Mexican restaurant in downtown Colfax. First thing that really impressed me how much affordable this place is compared to Seattle area restaurants of the same kind. Most combos you'll find for about $9-$10. We were seated in a timely matter and the service was good. We found the food to be excellent. My enchilada/relleno... More

We love the Sol Vallarta and are lucky that we live close by. The food is great, the portions large and service is helpful and friendly. We have gone to other Mexican restaurants and this is one of the best. I usually order the Burrito Sol Vallarta and it is huge so get to take some home for later. My... More

I have eaten at Sol Vallarta at least 50 times over the past 17 years, and have yet to have a dissapointin meal. Their carne asada in particular is outstanding. The service is always welcoming and friendly, and the atmosphere is comfortable. In my opinion, it is the best restaurant in Colfax (I think I have eaten at all of... More

We stopped for lunch while traveling through Colfax. The service was fine. The food was OK. The interior is pleasant and roomy. Nothing special about the food or the service. We'd go back if it was convenient, but would not make a point of eating here.

Sol Vallarta is a family favorite Mexican food restaurant, with quite a variety of dishes. The food is Americanized, but tasty and spicy. Arroz con pollo and fajitas are my favorite dishes. The Mexican family provides friendly service, too. Our kids come here first when they are back in the Northwest to visit!
