Description: Tucked in a corner alleyway of Newton Center, Cafe Sol Azteca is a cozy and enchanting authentic Mexican mainstay for over 20 years. Featuring cuisine from the Mexico's capital you'll be won over by their cilantro and mole sauces that will make you think you just stepped back into the old country. A full bar features the classic requests of sangria, margaritas, and cervezas while adding plenty more like Mezcal drinks and their "to die for" Mango Mojitos. Nightly chef specials along with an extensive traditional and specialty menu leave your taste buds with plenty to experience. Catch them in the warm weather and join them on their outdoor patio featured on local television programs as the place to be.

Sol Azteca is cozy and inviting inside in the colder months, and a real oasis (hidden in an alley) for dining al fresco in the warmer months. This is not a fancy place, and the menu is standard and never changes, but it is consistent. The margarita selection is good, as is the sangria. The guacamole, tacos, enchiladas and other "traditional" menu selections are always fresh and good, but if you want something different and you like cilantro try the gambarones (shrimp) or fish in cilantro sauce. We come back to Sol Azteca time and time again when we crave traditional Mexican fare.

Great place, cozy.
The food is very good and accurate.
Prices are ok.
I recommend the beef and the guacamole. Margaritas, as well!

Visited Cafe Sol Azteca this past week and truly enjoyed the outdoor seating area! It's relaxed, comfortable and welcoming. The service was challenging as the patio was packed and there were only 3 staff on. Sadly, it took 10 minutes for our chips/salsa, 15 for someone to take our order and another 25 minutes for my friend to get her drink (coke).

I ordered the fajitas and my friend had the combo. The food was good and the portions seemed reasonable. I wanted to give this restaurant a "very good" but could not based on the service. We were never asked if we wanted refills or more drinks as we ate. I hope the lack of service was due to someone being out.

Overall, I would give this place another try as it has a great atmosphere and the food was good!

Small and very friendly, this restaurant provides very good food although a bit pricey for Mexican. Cadillac Margaritas are great, so bring a designated driver if you want 2 or 3!!!
