The food here is not bad, but El Vaquero is the best Mexican restaurant in Mattoon. The service at Don Sol is not great either.

Complimentary warm chips and tasty salsa arrive at your table immediately. Their margaritas are the best in town and the menu selection is unrivaled and really good!

My wife and I recently visited Don Sol based on a suggestion from a social web site posting. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and well staffed. The menu selection will satisfy almost anyone with a variety of tempting entrees. My wife ordered the chicken fajita burrito and I had the chicken chimichanga. The burrito was as big as a... More

We usually visit Don Sol when we want a night out as a family and it's always good. There has been a couple of times service was slower but during those times, I noticed they were hiring so I completely understood. You can't go wrong with the food here and atmosphere is great.

Prompt, Courteous, and Attentive Service. Clean & Quiet. Large Variety on Menu. Typical to the True Mexican Heritage, the food portions are HUGE, HOT (Not 'Warm'), and inexpensive! This place is great for a quick lunch, Casual Business meeting, or Date. Bring the whole Family and expect to be treated like you're family yourselves! My Wife L*O*V*E*D their Watermelon Margaritas!... More

We really enjoy the food here and appreciate options that aren't smothered in the white cheese. I also like that the menu is decent for kids. Service has been hit or miss for us here. Good food.

The food is fantastic....best place in Mattoon for Mexican menu! Always hot and they give your good servings. The drinks are awesome. The margaritas are the best ever! Don't know what they do to them margaritas, but they are awesome. Great service and great prices. The restaurant is always real nice and clean every time I have been there.
