El Sol Azteca Mexican Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Bright and glittery, this Ashburn Tex-Mex place turns a simple Mexican meal into a big-deal event, with so many menu choices that patrons may be overwhelmed. Appetizers follow the usual pattern of nachos and tableside guacamole. But the standout starter is the queso fundido with melted cheese and grilled chorizo. There’s a lengthy list of salads, chimichangas, quesadillas, fajitas and burritos --- and even an abbreviated kids’ menu. For business folks on the go, El Sol offers an express lunch with the typical Mexican suspects: chili relleno, taco salad and burritos, among other options. One of the most appealing aspects of the restaurant is its sunny décor and complete bar area, where folks can cozy up for a few shots of tequila.
