Great home made food in an adobe house. Cute as anything with interesting southwestern recipes such as Chicken Mole and a very interesting chile relleno casserole. It's been there for 40 years for a reason!

Casa del Sol has been a great place for Mexican food for several decades and does not disappoint. You can get out of the intense high country sun and eat in one of the quaint dining rooms or out on the shady patio with fountain and plants. I recommend the pachuga suiza dish and a margarita (very limey and fesh... More

There were 4 of us and nobody was happy with the meal, or prices. The waitress was great! It's a cute place, but 3 of us ordered the salad with our meal, which they serve their homemade dressing. No taste to the dressing. One person ordered the albondigas soup, which was light broth with 2 small meatballs, nothing else. Two... More

I was on a business trip and stopped by because they were busy the night before. I am so glad I stopped! I had the #1 combo, great if your hungry. Chicken Enchiladas were absolutely incredible, I have had nothing like them. A deviation form the norm, the Chicken Enchiladas had a white cheese and sauce that was outstanding. If... More

My family and I did not like the food there. Service and building were great. The food is different from typical Mexican food, and we did not like it.

We have eaten several times on vacation at this restaurant. It has a very nice atmosphere, including a nice courtyard eating area. Menu was good, and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere, and enjoy eating here each time we vacation in Buena Vista.

If you remember true NEW Mexican food these people still do it right. They are consistently good. Red Chile is just like so many of us from Southern Colorado/New Mexico remember it. Thanks for keeping genuine tradition alive!

I've eaten here on two trips and enjoyed it both times. A bit of a hole in the wall, but the food is decent. The pechuga (chicken breast) was quite good. Depending on the waitress you may have to explain what you want very carefully! I got more than I wanted to eat because I don't think she understood "a... More

Our family has been coming here for 30 years and we always love it. It is a special place and the food is a cross between south western and Mexican. The Carne Asada steak is always delicious as are the cheese enchiladas with home made red chili sauce. The margaritas are great also. Don't expect the usual. Enjoy the unique... More

Food was good and the ambiance of the courtyard is the best my husband has seen! He had the Pechuga Swiss and I had the Cheese Echilada combo. Their salsa was fresh, chunky and not too hot. The busboy was very polite and thanked my husband for his service because he noticed his Air Force cap.
