good tacos and food but the line to get in can a long wait during lunch rush hour If there is room at the bar, you can go straight there and order and eat at the bar without waiting in line

Great casual Mexican with inventive flavor combinations. This is not a sit down restaurant in the traditional sense. You will wait in line similar to a fast food place, make your order and then the food is delivered to your table.

Arrive at opening time or bear with the long lines. The carnitas and brisket tacos are my favorites and are always great. Don't miss out on the salsa trio as an appetizer. And if they are offering the shrimp tacos as a special, those are awesome. Service is pretty fast but it an be troublesome finding a table sometimes. I... More

Taqueria has the best fish tacos's in town and for that I love them. Just about everything else, I hate - the long lines, the inability to get more than one drink wihout having to stand in line again, the inability to order more food without going to the end of the line, the small and only one size of...

This was a great place! The food was delicious. They have a lot of variety to choose from. Different flavors or tacos and enchiladas. Also the margaritas were delicious! There is outdoor seating and the service was very fast. I would suggest that you get their early. I guess there is a line out the door almost every night! I... More

Let's admit it, what we really crave here are the amazingly delicious frozen margueritas! The food is top quality and very creative. this "Mexican" restaurant takes a bit of artistic license in offering briscutt and greens on the menu, but they are both delicious. The greens have a dash or red pepper that gives them appeal. There are several in... More

Waiting in line for tacos seems tedious, however the line moves and the tasty envelopes of meat and sauces (choices) are awesome! The margarita you can sip while waiting in line makes the time fly!

When I'm in Atlanta, I find an excuse to stop by Taqueria to get tacos. The variety is great (brisket, carnitas, chicken, fish, veggie, etc), and everything is always delicious. My favorite item on the menu isn't even a taco, but rather their Shrimp Corn Chowder. The staff is friendly and service is quick, even with long lines during lunch... More

We go to Taqueria del Sol every time we're in Atlanta (about four or five times a year). That should tell you something right there. You can't go wrong with either the fish tacos or the carnitas tacos, so really, what I recommend you do is get one of each, and then also get the table an order of guacamole... More

Delicious food, quality margaritas served deli-style to an always-snaking line out the door. Not allowing drinkers to occupy a table stinks.
