A Locally Green Establishment – Cafe Sol Azteca is a member of the LocallyGreen network and they recycle all of their waste vegetable oil locally -- kudos for 'going green'!

Great atmosphere – The food and service were fine, but what I loved best was the cute courtyard for outdoor dining. My aunt moved to Newton 25 years ago and Sol Azteca is one of her favorite restaurants in the area. I went there for the first time this summer and was very pleased. The menu is not extensive, but they have all the authentic classics. The meals are large, so you might even end up having some to take home with you. The location is very convenient, as it is usually not hard to find street parking and it is also right across the street from the T.

Over priced and under seasoned – If you're looking for a new scene and decor, this is the place for you. But if you're looking for something that's going to give your tastebuds a run find another place to dine! The service was great, the people are friendly, and the location is cozy but the food wasn't worth the price. There just wasn't enough flavor for me.

I like it! – I don't claim to be a Mexican food conniasseur, but I do tend to enjoy this place. The decor is cute, the service is good, and the food is flavorful without being too salty.

Newton Center hosts MetroWest's most authentic Mexican dining experience. – The Scene
Having served award-winning Mexican cuisine since 1974, Sol Azteca (there's another location near the Fenway) enjoys a loyal following. With exposed brick walls and traditional fiesta decorations, the subterranean dining rooms all share a casual, homey atmosphere. Congenial waiters clearly take pride in their service. Beware the acclaimed house sangria--its lethal.

The Food
This is not a shopping mall Mexican restaurant. Corn tortilla chips and a muy picante house salsa greet diners as they sit down. Superb starters include fresh, creamy guacamole and a smoky queso asado (a blend of three cheeses, baked with sliced chorizo). As for the entrees, a combination of enchiladas rojas (beef with red sauce), verdes (shredded chicken with green tomatillo sauce) and poblanas (chicken with fantastic mole sauce) can't be beat. The light, homemade flan (caramel or vanilla) is perfect for dessert.
