Sol Food has a wide variety of tasty options that include different meats and vegetarian options. Everything is flavorful and pretty unique; there aren’t many places around that offer this type of cuisine. It is one of our family favorites. There always seems to be a long line out the door which says something about the demand and the niche it fills, and it’s also why they can afford to charge a little more than “fast casual” usually does, but those two reasons are also the reasons why it’s not five stars on my opinion. It’s a little expensive and too busy for a regular family meal. It if you’re cool with that than there’s nothing bad to say. Their take out and pick up options are reliable too. They always read your order back to you, always get the order right and are always within the delivery time window they tell you.

Although this restaurant is ALWAYS crowded, they do a great job of working fast to accommodate the line to get in. The chicken is cooked to perfection and the beans are awesome. I recently had the beef sandwich (forget the real name) and it was out of this world!

These ribs are some of the most delicious I've had in a long time. The sides were great too. Definitely try the limeade, it's very refreshing. There was a bit of a wait but it was totally worth it.

We always try to stop here when driving out of SF. The restaurant is about five blocks off the freeway, making it easy to get to. Parking is on the street, which can be difficult. There is usually a line, but it moves quickly. The special today was chicken and rice with plantains and beans. It was seasoned to perfection. The sparkling limeade was great. All round great meal, quick service. Just was perfection
