In the mood for traditional, mouth-watering Mexican dishes that will leave you in a comfort food coma?
Well, you could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Pinole Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
El Sol Mexican Restaurant, 224 Pacific Ave., Rodeo, is a family-owned restaurant that serves fresh and flavorful dishes to die for.
El Sol, opened in 1982, was a Best of the Bay 2010 nominee for Best Mexican Food.
Start with the famed El Sol Nachos ($5.25) and the savory Southwest lumpia ($6.50) – enticingly creative and crispy. For the next course, order either the two cheese enchiladas with rice and beans ($7.50) or the carne asada burrito ($6.75). Make the burrito “wet” for $2 more. With both entrees come with delicious mountains of oozing melted cheese and a succulent, soupy red enchilada sauce.
Tummy not tickled yet?
