    The vibe is great here, full of locals, large servings and happy people. Service is great, but you must first order and pay at the register. Prepare to stand in line. No res. #cglifestyle

    Get your fill of hearty platters of Puerto Rican meats, rice, & beans at Sol Food in sunny San Rafael. Use the spicy & vinegary Pique hot sauce liberally and read about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Most go for the chicken or beef platters, rounded out with pink beans, rice, salad and sweet or savory garlic plantains. Lines are long, but plentiful portions make it worth the wait. Read more

    At first glance, the line outside might seem daunting for the hangry. Luckily, it moves quick & the food inside is worth every waiting minute. Try the bistec sandwich washed down with a Te Helado.

    Oh god, even the plain rice is amazing!!!! The hot sauce in the table is runny but spicy and oh so tasty. Big line out front but moves fast & worth the wait

    Surprisingly good for food allergies! They use rice oil in the fryers, have several gluten free entrees and offer sandwiches between fried plantains instead of bread!

    The plates here are good, but the sandwiches are even better. What started as a farmer’s market booth now has 2 locations near each other in San Rafael, the “big place” and the “small place.” - Jeremy

    If you don't mind the smaller quarters, try their 4th street location right around the block. Skip the long lines and eat in micro authentic Puerto Rican style. Excellent service to boot!

    After a day of hiking at Point Reyes, this is one of the best places to stop by on the way back to San Francisco. Table service is 20-40 min. during peak hrs., but they do a quick takeout! Eat in car!

    The bistec sandwich. That's what you came here for. Juicy, tasty, perfect. Btw there are three Sol Foods in a two block radius, so check the other ones if the line is too long.

    instead of getting the vegetarian combo, get a side of rice, side of beans, and side salad. you get twice the amount of food for the same cost! also get it for there they skimp on to go meals.

    The food isn't bad, but holy crap is it overpriced. $19 for a sandwich that lacks an adequate amount of the meat it's named after, and a limeade that's half ice? C'mon, son!
