    Best Mexican food!!

  • *****

    They are the best i have been going to this wonderful restraunt since 2007 and the family and food atmosphere is amazing and we will continue to go. Wonderful restraunt and atmosphere.

    Food was amazing and very authentic! My husband ordered the Chimichanga lunch plate and I ordered the fajita lunch plate. The fajita meat was extremely tender and full of flavor. You get a ton of food for the price and I feel the quality was great!

    They loose the one star for a couple of reasons. They were cleaning out old food from the refrigerator in the dining area, their little girl was so cute but playing and touching all of the clean silverware laying it on the table , and they were mopping when we walked in so instead of smelling food we smelt cleaner (a huge pet peeve of mine). And the salsa had way too much lime in it

    The owner (I assume) and his daughter helped us and were very kind and had good customer service.

    I look forward to visiting my in-laws on the weekends because I know we will end up eating here. The charro beans are the main reason I crave this place all week long..... best charros EVER.
    Flautas, enchiladas, fajitas.. love it all.
    Also, pretty good margaritas!

  • *****

    Great service and nice people. The prices are good too. The best restaurants are always the small mom and pop places.

  • *****

    This is our families Sunday tradition brunch spot. Every time we go in there, were greeted like we're family haha. The main guy knows our orders by memory. The food reminds me of my grandma's cooking back in Mexico. This is NOT Tex-Mex food & I will just leave that at that. This is hidden gem of Katy.

  • *****

    After a 50 mile commute to the location, on initial arrival, the facade was a little tired and somewhat unimpressive. Once inside, the atmosphere was aged but clean and warm, with police officers dining which is always a sign of a place with good to great food. The wait service was EXCELLENT, attentive without being invasive and very friendly. The complimentary chips and freshly prepared red and green salsa's were vinegar based, slightly spicy and DELICIOUS! We had queso with charizo appetizer, tamales, enchiladas, street tacos, and beef fajita papa nachos. As born and bred native Texans who know good TexMEx, we can honestly say ALL WERE EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD. Last but not least, the restrooms were aged but as clean as any public facilities we have ever experienced; genuinely clean, not covered up with heavy fragrances. Well worth the 100 mile round trip, WE WILL BE BACK!

  • *****

    Easily one of the best Mexican restaurants around good food good service and the Rosa chicken is the best

  • *****

    Laid back atmosphere. Fast service. No wait at all. Happy hour until 7 pm. Tried the crispy shredded beef tacos and they we good. Lots of beef, in house fried taco shells (fresh out of the fryer), and decent rice and refried beans. Not the best Mexican food ever, but good for the price. My family will come back again. I would rather support a locally owned business than a big chain restaurant.

  • *****

    Wanted to find a good place to have a Mexican breakfast here in Katy. Found it! I’m picky and this place has a fabulous breakfast. I recommend the Migas or huevos a la mexicana. Really nice people too.

  • *****

    Just visited this restaurant, the food is not bad at all, I have a high expectations for Mexican food because I grew up in south Texas Rio grande Valley, I will return for sure .

  • *****

    Delicious! I had the breakfast torta! It was perfect and the right amount of everything! Definitely a great breakfast! My husband enjoyed his meal as well! Plan to give their dinners a try!

  • *****

    Great place. The staff is one of the best! Thanks for bringing my order to the vape shop!

  • *****

    Best place in Katy. Great food and the margaritas hit the spot. Staff is always nice and helpful.

  • *****

    Always supporting family owned restaurants! Usually we go to Chuy's for a tex-mex meal, but we decided to check this place out. The food was delicious and service was quick! And they allow dogs outside. I recommend this spot!

  • *****

    The breakfast here is awesome!! Very clean and the authentic decor is just like your in Mexico. Very friendly people I sure enjoyed talking to.

  • *****

    Food was delicious! Got a breakfast Mexican torta that did not disappoint! And it was not pricey at all either. Will be coming back to check out their lunch or dinner menu next!

  • *****

    Great food and great people that treat you like family when you walk in the door!

  • *****

    A fantastic place to eat. Homemade great food with great prices. We’ve been eating at cafe del sol for over 18 years. Great quality.

  • *****

    Love this place!

  • *****

    Really needed some breakfast tacos this morning, decided to give Cafe Del Sol a try - and we were very impressed. Awesome food! Love the tortillas and the salsas. We had the fully loaded torta, and several tacos. I recommend the sausage breakfast taco. This feast set me up for a very wanted solid Saturday morning nap.

  • *****

    Love this place for authentic Mexican food! The taste is like being back at Grandma's house. Go for breakfast or brunch to start your day off with a smile.

  • *****

    This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants to eat here in Katy! The food is delicious along with their desert.. specially the flan! The staff are very sweet and generous. The owner is such a sweet, kind hearted person. I also forgot to mention that they have a bar ... with happy hour although I cannot remember the time... their micheladas are also very good!! I strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

  • *****

    We have been here twice now. Fairly good food at reasonable prices. While the prices weren't as cheap as some had made it seem, they weren't bad either. I would say the food is on par with the other chain restaurants in Katy (chuys, jimmy Changas, etc.). They do have great micheladas which is always a plus with me. Definitely worth a try if you are in the area.

  • *****

    My sister and I come here often. We love the tamales. Closest ones I can find to mom's tamales. Everyone is always very attentive.
    Pricing is descent too.

  • *****

    This place is awesome and the service and food is great... definitely keep coming back for more..

  • *****

    Been there MANY times. Always a pleasure. Family owned. Like them so much we even had them cater my wife's father's 80th birthday party. The food AND service were the hit of the party.

  • *****

    I love this place! The food is great, service is exceptional, and the prices are awesome. I highly recommend it if you're looking for authentic Mexican food in the Katy area.

    This is not a glamorous restaurant whatsoever, it has a laid back, homey feel where you don't have to dress up to go to. I recommend their fajita tacos and the fajitas dinner, the portion is so big that 2 people can share a fajita dinner for 1 and get full. They also have several beers and liquors to choose from to wash down their delicious food.

  • *****

    Loved this place. They veg Quesadilla was amazing. One star less because the cops were not thin. Salsa was good

  • *****

    Good place for a quick, affordable breakfast/brunch on Sunday. Food comes out quick. No frills, good food!

  • *****

    Always on the lookout for a good breakfast spot and this place did not disappoint! The breakfast was fresh and well made. The salsas are fresh and taste great. I will definitely be back.

  • *****

    I live in the neighborhood that backs up to this little gem and I frequent this place a lot, especially for breakfast. This is a family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant and they treat you like their family. As soon as you walk in they greet you and allow you to sit where you want and immediately start catering to you. Everything is fresh. This morning I ordered my fave, Huevos Rancheros, with eggs over easy and bacon. My meal came out is less than 10 minutes, piping hot and the tortillas so fresh, I had to let them cool slightly. The ranchero sauce used is slightly tangy, but not spicy. Try the chips with the homemade red salsa...one of the best around. If I come here for lunch or dinner, I love getting the enchiladas or the tostadas. The food has never disappointed. Definitely a place to try!

  • *****

    We had a very nice breakfast. The coffee was smooth. We ordered eggs with beans , potatoes tortilla & fresh veggies: tomatoes, avocado . The potatoes were perfect. The cafe can be peaceful & relaxing. Today they had music on & the soccer games so it was a Lil noisy.

  • *****

    I ordered a custom burrito. It was perfectly.
    We had sopapillas & coffee. Very nice.

  • *****

    Just finished eating Chile Rellenos. Pretty good. If you're are looking for traditional Tex-mex, they fall a bit short. However, it is authentic Mexican food and very fresh. Today the cheese queso was very thin and soupy. The queso plain is a bit on the pricey side. Everything was good though and fresh. In the past I had their enchilada trio. It was very good but again, not quite Tex-mex. Probably much healthier though.
    Overall a very satisfactory meal with good service at a reasonable price.

  • *****

    Seriously amazing flavorful, savory, delicious food. I ate here as I was in the neighborhood and om goodness, have I found a great spot! We spent the night saying ..taste this.. this is tasty! this is so ggggoooodddd! This place is easy to miss on the map, but please go to this location and grab ANYTHING off the menu. ITS JUST THAT GOOD! I rate it the top 5 of all "Mexican" restaurants in Texas. I had the Verde enchiladas and the hand made tender corn tortillas were mouth watering.. the chicken was shredded and full of flavor. The verde sauce was hand made and felt like your Abuelita (grandmother) made it from scratch letting it simmer all day. the rice was a food group in itself and the beans, well they are so wonderful beyond belief! ENJOY!

  • *****

    Good, cheap, and fast Mexican food. Service is always warm and friendly. I've been here at least a dozen times and I always enjoy the ambiance. Never super crowded, always clean, and a good place for families. $8.99 for a two item combo plate at dinner is a steal- and I always have leftovers. Snuggled back in a shopping center off Franz and 99. Highly recommend for a casual dining experience close to home and easy on your wallet. Only thing I can say I haven't enjoyed thus far is the queso and the burrito smothered in queso (should have read the description- my fault). My favorite items include the cheese chile relleno and the chicken fajita soft tacos.

  • *****

    Great family owned restaurant. Had breakfast. Looks like a good place for happy hour

  • *****

    Pretty good grub, and different than the run of the mill tex-mex. The staff are all very friendly and eager to accommodate.

  • *****

    Came here yesterday for breakfast. The place wasn't too packed but it got busier later on. Our waiter took my drink order while I was walking in since my friend was already there which was fine with me. The faster I get stuff, the better. I had to ask for chips and salsa which is a little weird but then again it was like 1030 am so maybe they don't do chips and salsa till later. I ordered 2 breakfast tacos--bacon egg and cheese and I added potatoes and guacamole. My friend ordered the huevos rancheros. The owner also walked by so we asked about the tamales and he said we could order singles so we also ordered one pork, one cheese & jalapeo, and one dessert tamale. We really likes the pork tamale and we also enjoyed the tacos and huevos rancheros. The only slight issue was trying to get our bill at the end. There were only 2 waiters and one of them was also the bartender. Luckily we weren't in too much of a rush so it wasn't a big deal. I would definitely come back for breakfast, and I'd like to try their lunch/dinner!

  • *****

    Just tried this place today and it was amazing. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. I strongly recommend this place.

  • *****

    We stopped in for breakfast. We tried two of the breakfast dishes, one with Verde sauce (chilaquilas) and one with Ranchero sauce (huevos rancheros) and both were delicious. Sauces were perfect, food was cooked well. Service was good and the coffee and horchata were good. What more can you ask for? We will be back for breakfast again!

  • *****

    Del Sol is one of the best Mexican restaurants in west Houston! My wife and I ate there for breakfast. The Huevos Rancheros and breakfast Torta were phenomenal. I'd highly recommend this place for breakfast lunch or dinner. We will be back! The staff was very inviting friendly and made you feel like family!

  • *****

    This place is amazing! The food is awesome; big portions, made to order and served hot. Their spicy salsa is bomb! The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. I had the del sol burrito and it was enough to eat for lunch as well. My husband got the juevos rancheros which were also spectacular. If you're looking for an amazing breakfast spot in Katy this is the hidden gem you've been looking for.

  • *****

    Awesome place to grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the people are super friendly. Everything is fresh! My new favorite restaurant. And it is a great place to grab fresh tamales.

  • *****

    I don't give many places 5 stars but this place hit the spot a couple nights ago. The chips and both salsas were great to start out! My wife had the chicken tortilla soup since she was feeling a little sick and she loved it! I had the street tacos and they were made to perfection! The extra green salsa they brought out for that was fabulous as well. It had a good kick to it. Overall I would recommend this place for anyone looking for good Mexican food and good service. The staff was exceptionally friendly. See you guys soon!

  • *****

    Family like atmosphere, polite friendly service that was spot on! Had the fajitas for two and they were so yummy, came out sizzling hot with the hand made tortillas. The kid options were a big hit too! Definitely going back!

  • *****

    Excellent food and service

  • *****

    Service, price, and food is good. It was not very crowded, way better than standing in line at IHOP on a Sunday morning. Food is authentic, not like Franchise Mexican.

  • *****

    This has been our go-to spot for years. I'm a huge fajita head and what I like about this spot is their beef fajitas are delicious and much more reasonably priced ( though I love these restaurants I don't always feel like paying their prices ... Pappasittos, Cucos, El Tempo, original Ninjas ) Never have to wait to get seated and most importantly HOME MADE tortillas!

  • *****

    I love the breakfast here. We try to make it in every Sunday morning. Great people.

  • *****

    We have lived in Katy for 6 years....found Sol on the web this morning and decided to try it out. Best Mexican breakfast I have had since moving here. There were lots of regulars so I know it is consistent. I know I will become 1 myself!

  • *****

    Awesome food great prices & great magarita for $3 during happy hour.

  • *****

    The migas were great and the service was good.

  • *****

    This place is delicious. We shared the mixed chicken and chorizo tacos and couldn't believe how ridiculously good they were! The staff are more than friendly! Hope to be back soon!l.

  • *****

    If you're looking for a place where you can sit down and eat good Mexican Food prepared just like you like it, or just want some good Fajita Tacos & a few Beers. This is the Place. I recommend you try their Margaritas & Micheladas & the CoronaRita.......!

  • *****

    Just tried this place for the first time and it is wonderful. The service is great and the food is even better. The street tacos are amazing! You also need to get the pineapple water and if you are daring add rum to it. This is a hidden gem!

  • *****

    Came for breakfast and it was great! I had breakfast tacos, but it was a tough decision from all of the options they have. I can't wait to go back & try something different. Not to mention, the service is so good! Our waiter checked in with us often and with a smile. You can tell they are all about taking care of their customers.

  • *****

    Stopped in for breakfast and it was EXCELLENT! I'm stuffed and happy! The Cook did an amazing job with the Chilaquiles and Verde Salsa, with eggs and Carne Asada. The salsa verde was great, and not spicy, which I was a little fearful of at first but was actually very mild. The secret is out, the food is great, Go and Eat!

  • *****

    Food is delicious. This is authentic Mexican Cuisine done to perfection. Every dish I have tried has never disappointed.

  • *****

    Salsa is so good. Margaritas are super good! Food was tasty and the staff was so warm and nice! Very happy to have stumbled onto this place.

  • *****

    Great food, speedy service, and very reasonable prices. Owner is always on site to greet you with a smile. Welcoming atmosphere where staff remembers you and your favorite dishes. Wish more places were like this!

  • *****

    Great breakfast tacos!

  • *****

    Amigables servicio Muy atento y muy rica comida recomiendo altamente

  • *****

    Great food ! Nice staff! Reasonable prices. What's not to like they will even go out their way to make the kids what they want even if it's not on the menu!

  • *****

    My now husband and I have been frequenting Cafe Del Sol since we first started dating 10 yrs ago when they were off Franz Rd. The family has always remembered us and welcomed us with smiles. We've never had a bad meal here. The Torta's have become our favorite and their green sauce by far is my favorite from any Mexican restaurant we've eaten at. While in our busy chaotic lives in the past year we've stopped in maybe twice but those two times we were recognized and welcomed back right away. This speaks volumes to me and also reminds us we need to go there more often. I'm all about supporting family run establishments and Cafe Del Sol will always have a special place in mine and my husbands lives.

    Stopped by here after my dental visit around the corner. Food was average.

    Delicious food!!! Stopped by for the amazing salsa and handmade tamales to go and found a great Family owned and operated restaurant with authentic recipes. Nice little happy hour at the bar inside. Very nice atmosphere and wonderful staff and crowd. Try the Fajitas!!! Worth the trip!!!

    loved it

    I have to drive an hour to get here!!! for the chicken soup. the best

    The staff is attentive, food is absolutely authentic. Most of all they treat you like family!

    My family and my mother-in-law have been here a few times now and now I can include other in-laws as well. It is a great little place in s strip center for real mexican food at a decent price and healthy portion. My kids eat what they get (if you are a parent, you know that is - a lot of the time - a big deal) and they get more than enough. I have found every dish I have gotten there very good, hot and fresh. Last time I just shared something with my son: nacho cheese and taco beef covered french fries. Wow. C'mon - you know you love cheese fries - and adding taco meat to it... I'll admit, it sounds like a kid's meal (and that is one reason I got it) - but their thicker cut fries that were crisp on the outside and light/fluffy on the inside combined with the cheese/meat: fantastic and $5 for a rather large plate of them! Comfort food. Now if you wanted 'healthy' - don't go with my cheese/meat fries suggestion - but they have other things that will MORE than suit your needs/desires too!

  • *****

    I love this place! They are a small neighborhood restaurant with excellent food. Prices are great and they recently added some very friendly new staff. There is also a small patio if you would like to sit outside. Good for a quick meal, family time or just to get a yummy Mexican food fix. The green sauce is a don't miss!!

  • *****

    Best hidden little gem in the area, great food and service. I'll be returning, on a regular basis. Can't wait to try the breakfast items.

  • *****

    First time here, staff was friendly, ordered Mexican Chilaquiles, it was really good, I added eggs and steak, I should have left the steak out, everything else was really good. Will come back and try other items.

  • *****

    Recently moved to Houston from California and this is by far the best Mexican restaurant we have dined at in Texas. It's a small quaint restaurant (not decorated fancy) that serves fresh homemade dishes. I had the enchilada verde and a michelada that was amazing. My fianc had the beef fajitas that were extremely tasty too! I would recommend it to anyone who loves good Mexican food.

  • *****

    Everything is fresh when ordered. They don't disappoint me everytime I go there. The green salsa is the best!

  • *****

    Needed a Sunday lunch for the family and thought we'd give this place a try. It had nearly no customers when we got there. It was myself, my wife, my mother-in-law and my two children.

    The server was very polite and attentive. I believe the owners and/or family was sitting near the entrance. The place was clean and quiet.

    We ordered our drinks, decided what to get the kids, and then, as our drinks arrived, we were ready to order for everyone.

    Lots of chalupas all around along with some chicken tenders for my daughter and a beef taco with some charro beans for my son. I got a chile rellenos with tostada. We also ordered some queso.

    The chips and salsa was tasty. My son and daughter overindulged on that. The Dr. Peppers were good (well mixed) and my mother-in-law stayed supplied with fresh coffee.

    The queso and flaky 'chips' it came with were very good. The beef was seasoned well on the tostados and chalupas. The spanish rice seemed to be made in house, very good. The charro beans were well seasoned.

    My daughter ate most of her chicken tenders and dipped her fries (very good fries) in the queso. My son ate his entire soft taco and beans sans the tortilla itself. My wife and mother-in-law seemed to enjoy their choices. The poblano pepper in my chile relleno seemed to be a bit on the young/tough side, still decent taste. The ground beef, again, was seasoned perfectly for the occasion. I would give the food 3.5 stars on its own, service takes this places little higher.

    There was some sort of tension - unknown - going around with the owners/family and our server (not necessarily between them, just all around) but it did not affect the service or food quality.

    Short version: service was great, food was very good (even to younger eaters) and the atmosphere perfect for the time and company.

    I would go back and my mother-in-law - who lives nearby - said she would go back on her own on some random Sunday in the near future.

  • *****

    Nice dog friendly place. We sat on the small patio with her dog and enjoyed in enchiladas and migas. We will return.

  • *****

    This was our first time here and brought my huge mexican family. The staff accommodated our table very well. The rice and beans taste homemade just like my mother home cooking. The chips and salsa were very tasty and the food was great! Will come back again! :)

  • *****

    After about five visits I can say this is the best Mexican Food in Katy hands down. The Chimichanga, Chille Rellano, Chipotle Chicken are all great. The green sauce is amazing with always fresh chips. The best part is the great service from either the chef/owner himself or one of the wait staff members. Worth every penny and will be back soon.

  • *****

    Nice family owned restaurant. We just moved to this area of Katy and were looking for a close Mexican restaurant to eat at. Food was good and so was service. Nothing fancy, but very casual/comfortable. Only suggestion is that the salsa have more spice. It had a very good flavor, but would like it more if it were more spicy.
    We will visit again. Recommend.

  • *****

    They have a patio, accessible through the restaurant.

    We had our dog with us & we were looking for an outdoor eating spot in the Katy area that would accommodate the need to bring her with us.

    They allowed us to bring our dog through the restaurant out to the patio.

    I confirmed that they've allowed other patrons to do this & are very dog friendly.

    They even brought her a small bowl of water without prompting.

    It's a family affair; the kids handle seating & serving. The youngest brought us our salsa, and the middle children were out every few minutes checking on us, clearing tables, bringing food, refilling chips & water...the service really is great!

    The chips and queso are house made flour tortilla chips. The queso is your standard TexMex yellow velveeta style.

    Breakfast is served all day on weekends.

    The food was really good, the ambience was standard Houston TexMex; casual, relaxed, family oriented.

    Margaritas are the standard sweet lime & tequila mix (that is to say...good!)

    The menu is huge. If you have a hankering for it, they offer it.

    They have desserts, they're just not on the menu.
    (The flan is delicious!)

    The breakfast tacos were excellent. All of the ingredients were hand sourced; home style, grilled potatoes, skillet grilled tortillas, made exactly to order.

    It's a great, family run, small business that serves good food in a casual environment, with fantastic, attentive service at a reasonable price.

    Excellent! Headed home and wanted a good breakfast we were not disappointed. The chiliquitos were delicious and the green sauce fresh and tart. Be sure and ask for the spicy version if you like it hot. A must stop!
