My lunch buddy and I wander around the area once a week, While we had been trying lots of pubs recently, we realized we hadn't been to a Mexican restaurant for a couple of months. We automatically returned to Plaza del Sol, and were happy again. The classic Sonoran/American Mexican food was perfectly made, quickly served and tasteful. Prices are... More

My family and I have been going to Plaza for years now. we have tried just about everything on the menu and have not been disappointed once. every once and a while they get caught short staffed, which means you might have to wait. The food is worth the wait!

We have a good selection of Mexican Restaurants in our area. Mexican is our favorite food. We've eaten authentic Mexican in several areas in Mexico; Oaxaca, Colima & Guanajuato and at our friend's houses who are from different areas of Mexico. So, we have been fortunate to have tasted excellent Mexican food. So, right now in Elk Grove, we enjoy... More

We really enjoy the taco salads. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Prices are reasonable. Decor is old, but they are trying to make improvements.

My wife and I had heard good things about this restaurant through a couple of friends. We are new to the area so we decided to give it a try. What a nice surprise! This place is the real deal. Everything was fresh and home made. No canned food! The Enchilada sauce was particularly good. The rice was moist and... More

The portions are generous and every meal I've had has been good. They have a separate, full bar too. The service has always been great.

Tried this place after someone told us about it. They recommended the Carne Asada and we found out why. It was really good. I also tried the Fautas but they weren't anywhere near as good. They tasted like they were cooked in a deep fat fryer that is used to cook everything else under the sun. Go try the Carne... More

I've been here several times now purely because it's in an ideal location and not forgetting both the food and service is good. We are always made welcome and overall, we've rarely had go complain.

We go to this little out of the way Mexican restaurant quite frequently. We have found this little gem to have the very best red Pozole in the area. We have even been down in Mexico and cant seem to find any better. The wait staff here is also very friendly and inviting to all that come through the door.... More
