Sol Azteca: New Restaurant at Ellsworth and Baseline


Those seeking authentic Mexican dishes have a new local option at Sol Azteca.

Sol Azteca Mexican Kitchen opened in early July at the corner of Ellsworth and Baseline next to the SodaCrush.

Owners Ivan and Violet Garrido and their family saw an opportunity to bring back the flavors of Mexico in the East Valley. The Garridos have both worked in the food service industry since they were teens and were excited to open a place of their own where they could showcase their combined family recipes to create true authentic Mexican dishes.

The red and green chili is made from chili’s they roast in house. Corn tortillas are made in house as well, Soft tortillas
are made locally everyday and the Garridos are continuing to seek out additional local suppliers.

One of their main specialties is Molcajetito, prepared with carne asada, chicken chorizo, and
cactus, and topped with grilled onions, queso fresco, and a molcajete salsa.

Tampguena is tender, grilled
steak plus a cheese enchilada with pico, fresh guacamole, and sour cream.

Sol Azteca also offers street tacos including carne asada, grilled chicken, carnitas, and al pastor. Al pastor is a mouthwatering, seasoned pork with pineapple popular with street taco vendors in Mexico. Sol Azteca also offers seafood tacos.

There are quite a few breakfast options, including breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, chorizo, and machaca.

The restaurant employees seven people and they are hoping to expand in the future! It took about a year to open the restaurant. A family member designed the décor of the restaurant to give it that
vibrant Mexican style.
