We caught up with a representative of Sol Mexican Grill during H Street Festival a few weeks ago to learn more about their first stationary restaurant that is coming to H Street soon. Sol Mexican Grill currently has two food trucks that roll around downtown serving a variety of tacos, burritos, and bowls featuring chicken, steak, carnitas, brisket, and vegetables. Our favorite is the chicken bowl where they give you a generous serving of your choice of grilled chicken (tender and not overcooked), rice, beans, lettuce, corn, cheese, sour cream, guacamole (extra), jalapeños, onions, and three different types of salsa (the spicy one has a good kick).
Sol Mexican Grill will be opening at 1251 H Street (next to Smith Commons) in what used to be a Chinese takeout place (Danny’s). We were told that they are ready to move forward with a complete renovation and remodel but have run into some delays with the permitting process. They were hopeful that the new place can open up by or in December sometime. The new place will feature two floors. The first floor will be somewhat fast food like and will feature the food that Sol offers in its food trucks served up quickly. The second floor will be more of a lounge that will offer drinks and also have a small patio in the back. We hope to be able to welcome them to the neighborhood before the end of the year.
