Welcome to Sol Azteca, one of the oldest mom-and-pop Mexican restaurants in Boston. We continually strive to bring you authentic Mexican food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are proud to use many fresh ingredients, sauces made daily, hand-made desserts, and some of the tastiest margaritas around! We look forward to making your dining experience memorable!

Sol Azteca, (which means Aztec Sun), has been open since 1974, and is still under original ownership. A native of Mexico, Rafael Osornio, had a vision to bring traditional recipes from different regions of his country, including Puebla, Veracruz, and Mexico City. Sol Azteca can still be found in its original location in Audubon Circle at 914 Beacon Street on the Green C Line, just a short walk from Kenmore Square and Fenway Park.

Coconut milk, mango, jalapeno, and chipotle pepper, are some of the exotic ingredients we use in our home-made sauces. Indulge in the most traditional sauce of Mexico, rich Mole, over a boneless chicken breast or enchiladas; Jumbo shrimp with fresh cilantro, lime, garlic; Chunky guacamole, Grilled Sirloin, Fajitas, Vegetarian dishes, and Gluten-free entrees you'll enjoy here.

What goes better with Mexican food than a tasty margarita? Choose from pomegranate, melon, or have an original made with one of 12 premium tequilas or our in-house infused spicy tequila. Our award-winning red sangria, imported Mexican beer, or one of our carefully-selected wines will compliment your meal.

I've been to this location once, and the one in Newton a few times. I came here with a large group, and the wait staff seemed slightly overwhelmed to serve our party of about 10 people. When we arrived we ordered a fair number of drinks, and they brought out chip and salsa for the table. The staff ended up getting a few of the orders confused, and some things either weren't brought out, or were extremely late. We were hoping to be done within a certain time period because we had plans after dinner, but things just took forever. The food itself was pretty good, but I don't think I would come here again with a large party.

Love everything about this place. Not from Boston but got really lucky finding it. Great food and some of the best salsa I have ever had.

Tasty food - especially any of the shrimp dishes, and the guacamole. They are one of the few restaurants in the area with outdoor seating, so on a nice day if you're lucky you'll be able to snag a seat on the sidewalk patio.

I have never written a review of any sort for any product, restaurant, etc., but my experience at Sol Azteca on Sunday, June 2, was so awful I feel compelled to warn others. The service was not unfriendly but lousy (we waited over 30 minutes after ordering to be served, notwithstanding there were very few other customers (that should have been the first red flag). The waittress avoided our table for so long I eventually had to go find her to order a drink (and ask whether they had forgotten our order). The mojito I ordered tasted like a bunch of syrup on ice and the food was poor. My enchilada from the "specials" list was edible (nothing special, just edible fuel), but my husband's seafood (Veracruzano?) tasted bad and then made him feel horrible all night. The refried beans (hard to screw up) tasted like they'd been around a week too long and were way too salty. The cabbage just looked old. I guess the rice was palatable, if unremarkable. The chimichanga eaten by the 12 year-old among us was ok, but he was starving (especially after waiting so long to eat) and didn't think it was good enough to finish. All in all, a big waste of money and I'll never go back. I think it's time for Sol Azteca to call it a day.

It's a bit pricey but they give you big portions. The service is great and the decor is great too. They have authentic Mexican food, which is hard to come by in Boston.

the service was really great. very much enjoyed the decor. the food was average. i was very surprised that even for their vegetarian dishes they used animal products.
