We had reservations and people without reservations was seated and served before us. Then we waited an hour food our food and our oder was wrong. When we did receive our food we didn't have silverware. We wait for 10 minutes for the silverware but decided to leave without eating.
The food and atmosphere are authentic. The quality and taste of the food is outstanding. Our waiter, Steve, was very helpful and courteous. We highly recommend El Sol for an authentic Mexican dining experience.

Dinner on Saturday night. My wife and I tried the Birria specials...tacos for her, a burrito for me. Both were delicious. El Sol is one of our favorite restaurants in the Harrisburg area based on always meeting expectations, friendliness of wait staff and value.
Really good food, service and incredible value!
Food, service, atmosphere are ALWAYS consistent for a wonderful night out!
We were on a family vacation and found this gem of a restaurant on open table. It was the most delicious Mexican food we have had in a long time. The guacamole, ceviche, pitcher of margaritas, grilled salmon and molcajete were superb!! The highlight of the dinner was the tres leches dessert which we devoured in minutes with 4 forks! If you’re looking for a delicious Mexican dinner in a warm family-run setting, we highly recommend this place!
A very enjoyable dining experience. The positions were large and the service was excellent. The fajitas portions are large and full of a great mix of chicken and fresh vegetables. The nacho sampler is a great choice . Looking forward to the new location opening in Mechainicsburg, PA.
This place is at the top of my list! The food is delicious, the atmosphere warm, interesting and unique and the partitions between the tables lend an intimacy to the open floor plan. I’ll be back!
Excellent food and very authentic Mexican. Our server was Cassidy, an amiable and helpful young man. Thank you for a nice dining experience!
Maria was a wonderful server. Met friends we hadn’t seen in over a year. There was a large party there that was pretty loud but overall was ok.
The server was great! The food so good. I especially like the goat cheese guacamole. There was a Pomegranate Mojito that had mint in it and it was out of this world.
Always a wonderful experience, food and ambiance are great!
Our waiter, Randall, was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the menu. They have a pretty extensive drink list. I absolutely will go back if I'm in the area. The food is so great.
Good is always amazing and fresh! Cassidy was great as our waiter
