They sure know whats cooking at Solea. All great food from south of the border. I believe the building used to be a corner gas station from the 1940's, so it's a tight fit table-wise, but the food is excellent.

Solea is the very best of the many Mexican restaurants in the Fox Cities!!! With 3 locations, we are always near one. My favorite is the cozy Solea in Menasha. When we eat there we feel we are on vacation! We have tried many dishes and all have been GREAT!!!

When my fiancé says we are going here, I know I'm getting a good buzz. The house margaritas are the best! Bean dip and salsa at the tables.

It's small, a bit outdated, the music a bit too loud, and it gets crowded. But the staff is friendly, service is prompt, the food is consistently good, and the house margaritas are the best in the valley. We've been to their newer, larger restaurants, but keep coming back to the original. Try the carnitas or the fajitas, you can't... More

Solea is the BEST place for real Mexican food in the area. Their Fajitas are the best ever and the portions are big. While waiting for your order you can enjoy free nacho chips with 2 sauces.

By far one of the best restaurants around. It's small but worth waiting for a seat. Great drinks and reasonable prices. Friendly staff and speedy service. While there are a few other restaurants in this "chain", this location is my favorite.
