Something has gone very wrong here. Having been a regular for about 20 years, the service on a slow Monday was just hard to imaging ever being so poor. Sorry to say I'll have to think more than twice about going back, but if the busboy turned waiter with a pizza face is on your station, either get another table or just get going.

Good Mexican food in Boston. Love the combination plates- so much food!! The margs are strong too! Don't get a house margarita- try one of the other tequilas and you'll be much happier (no sour mix). The patio is great when the weather's nice, and the inside is nicely decorated and comfortable too. There's isn't much parking, so take the T or bus. Pretty empty on nights of Sox games so that's a great time to go!

This is a great Mexican place in Brookline. The atmosphere is authentic as well as the waitstaff. I highly recommend the sangria which has cinnamon in it, which is a nice touch. The service is great.

Sol Azteca offers delicious Mexican food in a beautiful environment. The service is excellent, with hosts and waiters who genuinely cater to you. The prices are inexpensive! I've tried many different dishes in this restaurant and I've never been dissappointed. Even the pink cabbage that accompanies each dish is tasty. And the restaurant itself is beautiful, with tiled tables and walls and Mexican artwork and all around. They offer yummy drinks, too. This is the best Mexican resturant I've ever been to, and the place is simply lovely.

PROS: Excellent Mexican foo, wonderful service, beautiful artwork and fair prices
CONS: None

I discovered Sol Azteca by word of mouth. Thank God! I have continued to visit this quaint cantina at least 10 times a year. They make the best Sangria in the world. It is a blend of red wine, fresh fruit and a touch of brandy. It

I had been to Sol Azteca a few years ago and wasn't that impressed then either. I decided to give it another try. The food was bland. It didn't have much taste. I ordered the Taco Frito and the Quesedilla combo. Sure the portions were plentiful and the other food items looked very colorful however the actual entree was rather dull.. I left feeling like I was missing something oh I know THE TASTE. Also for the price of a dish $12.95+ you can't split an entree with your companion.
Perhaps I am looking for a more americanized taco taste if that the case then I sure won't get it at Sol Azeteca. I will not be back, two times disappointed is enough for me.

This place is pretty good when it comes to the food. I recommend it if you have the money and are willing to try mexican that isn't exactly traditional mexican food. I'm not saying that the food is bad (it's definitely great to eat), but this restaurant has interesting twists on some of the plates. The one thing that threw me was the fact that the quesadilla was deep fried. It seemed more like an empanada than a quesadilla in form. It was still really good though. I liked the different style, but it just wasn't a quesadilla to me. Also, I was a little disappointed that they didn't serve any of the traditional drinks... I really wanted to have some horchata with my meal, but they don't make it. Even still, I would go back to Sol Azteca at any instant (at least if I have the money).

Pros: Great Food, Ambiance

Sol Azteca has the best authentic Mexican food in the city of Boston. It really is a memorable culinary experience. I travel quite a bit for business, and it's some of the best that I've had outside of Southern California or Texas. The mole sauce is amazing.
The service, at times, can be a bit spotty, but generally it is very good. They can get very busy, though, so it can be a bit hard to get in there, sometimes, especially on the weekends.
The drink prices are good, and they certainly don't go light on the pour, so be prepared. I highly recommend Sol Azteca.

This place has good food but the service is terrible. Every time I'm there it takes them forever to sit you down, even when its half empty. Once you sit down they don't come to the table until 15 minutes have passed by. I guess they can get away because they know people love the food. The Cadillac margaritas are really strong! Don't drink them if you need to drive. The flan is amazing, but get the regular one, not the coffee flavored one.

Pros: Food, Margaritas

I have been going to Sol Azteca since it first opened (about 3 times a year). The food is authentic Mexican fare, so if you're expecting Tex-Mex Taco Bell this place is not for you.

The waiters are of Mexican descent and have always been courteous to me and my friends and family.

The restaurant is set up so there are waiter stations in each room. Drop a fork and the waiter will be there with a replacement before you look up.

I recommend anything with a mole sauce, it is the best I've ever tasted and I've spent a lot of time in Texas.

For drinks the best value is the Cadillac Margarita. If you're driving limit yourself to one.

It takes about 1 hour for the entire meal (with dessert and drinks).

Relax and have a good time and a great meal.

The food at Sol Azteca was great, but i will never be back. The service was S-L-O-W and it wasn't even crowded. There's no reason why a simple meal (no appetizers or desert) should take almost 3 hours there!!

Pros: good patio, not well known, good sangria

Cons: slow service, unattentive waiters

We stumbled upon Sol Azteca last Friday night looking for a nice summer spot to unwind and have a decent meal, and hit the nail on the head. The service was impeccable - friendly, casual, and not overly obtrusive. The patio was perfect for the hot, muggy night, and the Sangria was divine. The chiles rellenos were delicious and VERY reasonably priced, and the shrimp in coconut milk were out of this world.
This may not be the fanciest or most pretentious place in town, but the quality/ambiance/price ratio is perfect, and you will leave feeling happy and relaxed.

Pros: Patio Seating, Great Service, Price

Try he Newton Patio which is accessable via a little alley off the main street. The patio is cool quite dining spot with quick seating thanks to one of the best Hosts in town.

The Mole is always my favorite on enchillada or whatever. I recomend the basic magaritta and extra red cabbage as your sides.

Never had a bad meal in 5 years.

This is hands down my favorite mexican place of all time. The food is amazing, as is the sangria. I have never had a bad experience here. The most I have ever needed to wait was 10-15 minutes and the food is well worth it at either location.

Pros: sangria, chips and salsa, wide range on menu

Cons: parking is tricky

This is the hidden jewel of Mexican restaurants. They don't advertise which means they don't get a lot of reviews. We've been going to both the Newton and Brookline Sol Aztecas for years and years. It's consistent and good. They DO need, however, to add a few vegetarian meals to their menu. Overall, a wonderful bet for a great meal.

My fiance and I are from Texas and have been craving Mexican food so we decided to try Sol Azteca, which we had read so many good things about on citysearch. We got there around 6pm and were seated and then had to wait a good 20 minutes for our waiter to come around (after we flagged someone down). The food was different than what I was accustomed to (Tex-Mex) so I had some questions. I started asking the waiter about some of the menu items (simple things like are your tortillas corn or flour?). He got so mad that I was asking questions and would just nod and stare off into space, he acted very snooty towards us. After we decided we needed more time to order, he got madder and just walked off grunting and shaking his head. We decided to leave and will never be back.
