Easily the most juicy and flavorful carnitas in Orange County. Sol Agave has a unique modern twist on Mexican food that is unparalleled to any of their competitors. Not only is their food quality and exceptional, but also their customer service is super phenomenal. Hands down my family's favorite restaurant in all of California.
Sol Agave is my favorite place to go for Mexican food and Cadillac Margaritas! Their Shrimp Taquitos are my favorite! You get a large jumbo shrimp wrapped in a delicate tortilla then deep fried and topped with fresh lettuce and pico de gallo, and a delicious creama on the side for dipping. It is soooo good! My husband loves the Sugar Cane Fillets, also to die for! Top it off with any of their margaritas (they are all good, trust me I've tried them all) and you have a match made in heaven. Then best part is I live right across the street from Sol Agave, I can walk! If you haven't tried them yet, you must go!
calamari was delicious, but the greens were a little spicy
The best I have ever had
I frequently visit the San Juan Capistrano location by my house and the Mission Viejo location for happy hour with my co-workers after our hospital shifts. The margaritas are second to none! The variety of flavors are always fabulous. The pork belly taco appetizer is a must! My personal favorite dish is the carnitas soft taco and the chick mole enchiladas. The guacamole is made fresh to order and is always great for sharing. I will continue to visit Sol Agave, as the food and customer service is always a pleasant experience! It is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Orange County.
Sol Agave is my family's go-to for Sunday dinner and special occasions. We are completely obsessed with the carnitas and butter cake - yum!! My husband and I are very picky Mexican food eaters and I'll admit, a bit critical of service when we go out to eat... but we are never disappointed when dining at Sol Agave! The staff is friendly and attentive - rounding out our great experience. Order on DoorDash or visit in-person when restaurant dining opens back up!
My very favorite!! Have had them many times. Huge shrimp, wonderful flavor, great dipping sauce!!!
Sol Agave is hands down the best place around for brunch. We had been going to the Mission Viejo location every Sunday for about 6 months up until the COVID lockdown started. Now we miss J.J. and all the staff that make this establishment so stellar. The service and food is always on point! Every dish that comes out of the kitchen looks amazing! We've basically tried everything on the menu, so it's really hard to pick a favorite. I will say that every dish we've tried has been perfection from presentation to flavor. I asked our daughter instead to pick her favorite dish....and Butter Cake won. There is always room for Sol Agave butter cake and no matter how full you think you are, you'll be amazed at how every last bite disappears in a matter of minutes. Sol Agave does it right. The attention to detail along with the friendliness and focus on service makes this a place that we looked forward to going week after week. We can't wait to go back when life returns to "normal" and it's one of the things on our "first to do" list!
It's hands down the best butter cake you'll ever have the pleasure of introducing to your tastebuds!
This is the soups of all soups - mild spice, creamy, and flavorful. Uniqueness at its best! Pair it with the grilled caesar salad for the perfect combo.
This soup is crave-worthy!!! My favorite! Highly recommended!
I can't pick just one thing to rave about! Too difficult. Everything here is wonderful....the welcoming spirit, the ambiance, the margaritas (OMG) and the food is delicious!!!
The carnitas is Wonderful! Love this restaurant! Knowing you're getting good quality organic and local foods satisfies the so as well as the tummy tummy! The carnitas portion is plentiful! There's always enough for leftovers and so good!!
I can't say enough about how much we live Sol Agave! It is our everything restaurant- have lunch, date night or celebrate our birthdays! I love the deconstructed pork belly tacos because they are so flavorful and we live for their tacos and taqueria! And for dessert the Mexican coffee and butter cake!!!
I love this place! It's our go to restaurant for meeting friends for happy hour or dinner and sometimes just a special night for the two of us. The food is always good, the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is a perfect balance of casual and classy. A true gem in south county. You must try the butter cake (one to share is plenty) and the Sol Agave Old-Fashioned 😋 Yum!
This was such an amazing dish! Just the perfect amount of seafood and cheese and the sauce was so tasty! The sour cream sealed the deal! Add a skinny margarita to complete your meal 🥘
My wife and I shared the Carnitas, more than enough for two. They are fantastic carnitas. Perfectly prepared, a little bit of crisp on the outside and tender, melt in your mouth on the inside. My daughter and son-in-law dined with us. I can't recall what they ordered but I do remember how much they loved the food. Everything we have tried in the three visits so far has been spectacular. We will be return customers often.
Incredibly tender, delicious, and enough to feed two!
Let's start with the service. From the most welcoming hostess, to great service throughout the meal. We usually dine at the bar, and as soon as we sit down we are greeted with fresh chops, refried beans and salsa. Miguel and JJ are fantastic bartenders, and always accommodate our special requests. Happy hour food items are delicious and generous portions. However, their famous carnitas are the best I have ever had! They are most, with crispy exterior and plentiful. Served with rice, beans, gauc and tortillas. On nights that we decide to do another dish, we order one of these for take out - it is that good!!!!! Desserts are great, and I also highly recommend ending your meal with a Sol Agave Mexican Coffee.....unlike anything you have ever had. Amazing.
Love the atmosphere but best of all the flavors! The jalapeño creams soup is my all time fav!! Thank you.
The best Ceviche EVER! Also had the Villa Rica sea bass SO delicious. Highly recommend Sol=Agave!!!
I have enjoyed many plates of carnitas but the flavor of the Sol Agave carnitas is the best I have tried. Lightly crisped but so tender a knife is not needed. Paired with their homemade tortillas and side dishes and you have a great meal. Don't forget the margaritas!
Our entire family are regulars! We have tried many of their dishes and love them all. A must try is the Carnitas, literally the best outside of Michoacan! The Taquiza is a great one when you can't make up your mind which kind of street taco you like, The mole, ceviche all of it is so good! I know the culture and cuisine, They did a great job bringing it here.
This is the best Mexican in Orange county, hands down! There's not one dish that we've had that wasn't completely gourmet. The bartenders are the best in the business, and their sangria's are by MILES the best we've ever had! We're here if every weekend, we can wait until they open the dining room back up. I work Monday through Thursday waiting for Friday to have my sangria's. The staff is better than the food, they're like extended family, we love this restaurant!
I love cherrios because the custard is so good and there is so much cinnamon also I love the amazing icecream on the side.
This is the best dish on the menu! The combination of the portobello mushrooms, steak, onions and cheese is truly mouthwatering. Every time I go I have to order it, it's truly amazing and well worth the price.
Best carnitas ever! Pulls apart perfectly! Highly recommended and a lot of food.
I had this as part of restaurant week and it was fantastic! The shrimp was huge, tender and moist. It was perfectly cooked and crispy. One of the best things on their menu!
Very generous serving; the mole enchilada was particularly tasty!
Have been coming to the restaurant for a couple years now but this last trip we tried the Tour of Sol Agave Specialties.........and needless to say its AMAZING! Love the mix of all the great flavors of the restaurant! Such a great dish to share with someone. Cant wait to have it again!
Definitely the one of the best restaurants in South Orange County. The carnitas are so juicy and flavorful. From the chips and bean dip to the most amazing churros, Sol Agave is a must for any meal. Not to mention, the margaritas are delicious!
Without doubt the best carnitas dish i ever had?
Ive been to Sol Agave in San Juan Capistrano with my family several times! This place is such a treat. It is so convenient to make a reservation online which goes smoothly every time! We have had Sophia as our waitress once before and received excellent service which brought us right back! Requesting to be served by Sophia of course. Her service really tops off our experience. Upon arrival, chips, beans, and salsa are delivered to the table! Love the addition of the beans, such a nice touch! For drinks, we ALWAYS order the Sol Agave Old Fashion which is incredible! Made table side by a very talented and knowledgeable bartender! This drink is well worth the price and tastes out of this world! We love it so much that we purchased some ingredients to make it at home ourselves (definitely did not come out the same). We have also ordered the raspberry chipotle margarita, frozen coco, and watermelon margarita which are also delicious! For the meal, we like to order family style, trust me, you should too! I highly recommend the carnitas, sol agave salad, sol agave para dos, and the villa rica. Everything is cooked to perfection, drinks are always full, and ambiance is tops! Sol Agave is a treat for my family and I, check them out, you won't regret it. Cant wait to be back!
Sol Agave Steak Fajitas nourish my soul. Their chips, salsa, and guac are the best in the game and their proteins are always prepared excellently! On top of this, the staff is beyond nice. Sol Agave really is my favorite restaurant for all of these reasons.
Simply mouth watering and make sure to have your waiter bring more plantain chips because they are like no other !!!!!! You'll want to eat the entire bowl like I did... but don't because you'll need room for that entree ❤️❤️
Because last year celebration was such a memorable experience we will B dinning again tonight 4 birthday celebration. Pleasantly surprised my server remembered me & prompt 2 offer cocktails. Main entrees always so delicious & your ceviche best ever. I'll confess the modern edge aesthetics also savvy lure.
We ordered this dish for the table we also ordered the shrimp taquitos and the taquizo (tacos). We also had the grilled pineapple spicy margarita and the raspberry spicy margarita. For desert we had the fabulous flourless chocolate cake. Oh my gosh, we are forever Sol Agave fans. The food was amazing, Our wonderful server I cannot remember her name, was so welcoming and knowledgeable. She put together the ceviche at our table, it was so fresh and delicious. The tacos were so full of flavor, and the shrimp taquitos were out of this world. The margaritas were sooo good. The cake wasn't too sweet or heavy it was also delicious. We really loved everything. My mom was visiting and this was the best decision we made, to take her there. We can't wait to return.
These are So good. My favorite go to...never a scrap left :)
Oh my goodness, I am in love with the cazuela de queso! It was very delicious and the atmosphere was amazing; the staff was very knowledgeable about the food and very friendly to us. Thank you for making our first Valentine's Day special for us. Great service!
