Poorly treated by management – My wife and I have been here a few times, and it is never really great. The food is okay, and the service is less than stellar. I keep thinking it is because the waiters and waitresses are really busy, but I hardly see any business in this restaurant. in the times we have been We went again with some friends, and our waitress seemingly forgot about us on the patio, and we had a coupon, and the couple we were with had a coupon as well. The waitress never came back, and so my friends had to go to the bar to pay their check, and when the waitress finally came to pick up our check, she refused our coupon, saying "1 per table". Well, for one, this could have been avoided if she had bothered to come out and give us our checks, and two, the manager on duty would not hear anything I had to say. No where on the coupon does it say "one per table" and he kept pointing at a rinky dink sign that looked like a permit on the window when you walk in, saying that it explains everything I need to know. Very rude, and in fact, I had to take my coupon out of his hands, because apparently he wasn't even going to give it back!
If you want to eat here, really go somewhere else. There are much better mexican restaurants around with much better service. I would love to describe some redeeming qualities that this restaurant has, but I really can't.
okay - may or may not return – We tired Sol's for the first time this weekend because we got a gift certificate off of a website, which I am apparently not allowed to type in this review. Great deal, but as a condition of the certificate we had to spend $35, so we got more than usual for just 2 of us. We sat on the patio... not a great patio, but it was perfect weather, so that was nice. The waitress was fine, not terrible, not outstanding. Alcohol was included with our certificate, so I had a margarita and my husband had a beer. Beer was fine, margarita was terrible. If we eat here again, I will definitely not have the margarita. ($5.50). For dinner we had beef fajitas and sol's pechuga. The fajitas were good (although I could have used more sour cream and guac) ($12.95). Sol's pechuga sounded better on the menu. The chicken didn't seem to have much flavor ($11.95). We also had a bowl of queso. We took a lot of food home and had it for lunch today. Not bad as leftovers.
Overall, not a bad experience, but nothing compeling to make me want to come back. I'd have the fajita's again, but not sol's pechuga. Most dinners were between $8.50 and $14.
I give up – I keep trying to give this restaurant another chance because I love Mexican food and it's so close to my house, but after last night, I finally give up. It's not out-of-the-ordinary for service to be slow (to the point of lazy), but it was so bad that I left a less than 10% tip. I can't recall the last time I left less than 20% for anyone, even when I've gotten bad service. The food took a full 30+ mins. to get to our table and when it arrived, it was cold. We were so hungry that we ate it anyway. My husband had the tamale plate which was not only cold, but the taste was so bad that it was inedible. I ordered a beef taco salad, which had a tiny portion of ground beef and was topped with caked, cold queso. Our kids had fajitas and these were at least edible, although my youngest son got shrimp fajitas, and the whole plate had a total of only 6 shrimp.
I finally give up! My husband and I keep going because we want it to be like our early days of eating at Sol's Taco Lounge in Deep Ellum, but it doesn't come close, and even worse, there is no chance of making a new memory at this spin-off. Gross, cold, slow, disgusting- and a waste of $50- that's my review.
AMAZING FOOD GREAT MARGARITAS – After reading the bad review i thought hmm... let's try this anyway. One bad experience doesnt make everything bad especially when it comes to drinks. So off we went.
Imagine my surprise to find out this place is related to one of my other favorite spots in Dallas. Sol's Taco Lounge in Deep Ellum once again i felt like home. This place serves up some AMAZING FOOD, from Enchiladas to Tacos and Chalupas. To my favorites yea!!! Guiso de Res and Fajitas!! Now let me tell u a lil secret!!! On WEEKENDS at 8am you can find one of the most AMAZING MEXICAN BREAKFAST as well as PANCAKES for the traditional. What a great place to have a mimosa bloody mary or even a frozen rita on the Patio!
Sol's is very family friendly sometimes too much so but you have to realize the neighborhood feel of things. So time it right or get stuck in kiddie land which i must say the staff handles well. Sol's is a place everyone should try. Remember the bad review complained of the drink not the food. ILL RATE THE FOOD 5 STAR as for the Drinks... JUST AS GREAT!
One bad experience. – I had a bad experience there. My drink had an insect as a garnishment. Everyone was nice about it but I've stopped eating there.
Editorial Review – Tex-mex favorites served in a family friendly setting with outdoor seating.
