    Love love this place! You line up and order food at the counter. I LOVE the té helado (orange-mango tea), must get! I like the bistec better than pollo al horno.

    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.

    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.

    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
