This quaint restaurant is tucked away nicely in the SOMA district, away from the more heavily trafficked 2nd Street but still within walking distance of all major downtown attractions. The food here always tastes freshly made with high quality ingredients. Be sure to stop in...More

This is the best Mexican food in Harrisburg. The lunch specials are great. I love the fajitas for dinner. The guacamole is great. I'd upgrade from the house Margarita. I think there is a happy Hour, but I have not been.

Let me preface this review by saying Mexican food is not my favorite, but I always enjoy my meal at El Sol. The staff was friendly and attentive. I wasn't thrilled with the selection of beers, but that's highly subjective so I can't fault them...More

I did not have nachos so I do not recall if they had nachos. I'd hate to assume one way or another. I'd suggest checking website for the menu or calling them directly.
