Sol food has struck a foodie nerve in southern Marin. Flagship San Rafael location is lauded by an eclectic mix across all peoples who call Marin home. Everyone likes this place, featuring unique Puerto Rico inspired offerings. Popular and tasty. Also has good veggie options.

Our out of town friends count on visiting Sol Food or bringing in their fave menu items. We catered our son's after-wedding lunch with Sol Food. Great success. Something for everyone. Put me down for a 2 piece pollo al horno dinner with maduros!

It's nice caribbean style food. What more to say? Remarkably popular, counter service, sit where you can, always a line out the door. No alcohol, I like that.
