Restaurant Review: Sabor Y Sol Mexican

It does look a little cheesy.

  Sometimes when you happen upon a place you make a quick judgement by the building facade. Near the crossroads of 7th Street and Southwest Boulevard in Rosedale you will find this uniquely designed eatery. When you first see Sabor Y Sol you would easily pass it off as a cheesy Mexican restaurant. You may question the quality of authenticity of the food, but you would be off target. This place has a look designed to attract attention, and a menu full of items designed to keep you coming back.

Great guacamole.

  Every Mexican restaurant starts you with chips and salsa, but why not kick it up a notch and have their Guacamole Ranchero. Made fresh with avocado, tomato, onion, and spices, this appetizer really hits the spot. If you prefer you could pick a cheese sauce to accompany your chips or just share one of the nacho offerings. There are also a few quesadilla and flauta offerings that could serve well as an appetizer.

Good size portions.

  If you are in the mood to stay toward the healthier side you can always order the Fajita Salad. Made with either chicken or beef this dish will serve as an entire meal. There are a handful of other salad options, and almost all of them come with a serving of meat. If salad isn't quite what you are looking for they also offer a couple of soup options.

Tacos street style.

Nice flavorful tacos.

  We are partial to tacos, and Sabor has a good variety. You can get the more traditional style served with pork, beef or chicken. Maybe you will want to sample the "street taco" version, which is becoming more popular around this region. Whichever style you pick, you will find them well proportioned, and not too salty. 

Carnitas De Res dinner.

  If you are like us you prefer to order an entire meal, and then try your best to see how much you can finish. The prices at Sabor will allow for this without breaking the bank. Many of the dishes, like the Carnitas De Res, come with sides and condiments. It is clear that they do not want you to leave hungry. The service can be a little slow at times, but for the price it is easy to overlook. You won't find a packed house like they have in the Crossroads, but that makes it that much easier to find a table. This place doesn't have a website that I could find, but you seek out more information by looking them up on Yelp or Tripadviser. They do have a Facebook page if you want to do a search. 


  1. Believe I'll give it a try, sounds good.

    1. I certainly hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  2. It is, Mary Ann. You really need to try the guacamole.
