Sol Azteca

I ate here last night and it was so delicious!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We had a buywithme deal – one appetizer, 2 entrees and 1 dessert for two people for $30.

The restaurant was almost completely full when we arrived, on a Monday night, at 7pm but we were able to get a table without waiting. Our server was very attentive, and super friendly! He was so knowledgeable about the menu and which items were gluten free ☺ The best part, being, big water drinkers, was he left the pitcher on our table THANK YOU! That saved both him and us a lot of hassle!

The chips are corn based and gluten free and salsa was the best salsa I’ve ever had! It was a little bit spicy but incredibly fresh! For an appetizer we shared the Chamaorritos – grilled chicken tips in chipotle pepper, basil, onion, garlic, mango, orange and anise sauce. It was delicious; mouth watering good! The chicken was so tender and cooked to perfection.

For my entree I ordered the Chicken Enchiladas Verde, which came with rice and black beans. I was pleasantly surprised by the use of Corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas in many of their dishes. My boyfriend ordered Pollo Mango – Grilled Chicken breast in a mango, garlic and chipotle pepper sauce. He loved it; I thought it was good but a little too sweet for me! We both had to take half our meals home because the portions were pretty big.

For dessert we split the vanilla ice cream topped with Kahlua liqueur, also delicious. We were so full we were only able to take a few bites. Our meal would have cost us $48, but we had the $30 deal so we lucked out a bit.

A good portion of the menu is gluten free. The Mole Sauce is not.

I highly recommend Sol Azteca for 2, 4 6 people or more! The prices are reasonable and the food is great! I will be going back for sure!

  1. I'm pretty sensitive to gluten and I wanted to know if you knew if the chips were done in their own separate fryer or with the rest of the gluten containing foods. Thanks!

  2. I just called, they said that their chips are fried in the same oil as their chimichangas, so they are not.
