Looking for an inexpensive alternative to chain restaurant? This is it. The food was very good and inexpensive. Especially since they had a lunch menu. My husband is GF and they said there some Options for him. He at black beans and rice and did not get sick

We have never been disappointed with our service or the food, and there is usually a 10% off coupon in one of the local flyers.

There is a Taco Bell a few blocks down. Go there instead. Or better yet to Taconooga. Plaza del Sol has the least "inspired" Mexican food I've ever had. They do the least amount of work they need to do to squeeze out the most money they can out of every sale. Only in Chattanooga, a city with bad Mexican... More

My recent experiences at US Mexican restaurants have been boring until this week when a friend took me to Plaza Del Sol. I was surprised by the wonderful, fresh flavor of my dish, loaded w rice, beef, cheese and some veggies. I cleaned my plate like a child working on a sucker. I can't wait to take my family there...

Yummy chips and salsa! Nacho app. Was very crunchy and cheesy good. We had the shrimp casa. W/ guacamole salad. It was delicious. It came with belle peppers, onions and cheese inside. Staff was friendly. Beverages were cold :) it was a great time.

My first experience at Plaza Del Sol was a good one. The food and service were both very good. We will definitely be back for more.

I really like chicken, but sometimes I just have to change it up. Today I ordered the shrimp plaza quessadilla with a quacamole side salad. It may become my favorite meal at Plaza Del Sol. I suggest you try it too.

It had been over a month, since we ate there last, and I wish we had not waited so long; queso was good; tortillas were hot; salsa was fresh, and the Sol Special was very good

We arrived at 9:45 and asked if the kitchen was still open. The staff told us yes. We were served chips and salsa quickly. The food was terrible. How can you mess up a cheese quesadilla? They did! The margaritas were not very good at all! Disappointment. Disappointed we chose to eat here. It used to be good my husband... More

This used to be one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. It's nice inside, clean, and friendly staff. But the menu has shrunk to just the basics and prices have gone way up. I don't like paying 5 star prices for a 2 star restaurant.
