This is not traditional Mexican food with a fried chicken taco or a beef brisket taco but the flavors were amazing. No excess of sour cream or cheese to make you feel uncomfortably full. Shrimp and corn chowder was excellent - wish I had 2 bowls. Nice sweet tea.. Looking forward to going back for guacamole and other parts of... More

As long as you enjoy good food, done quickly, & don't mind waiting in line for a little while, Taqueria del Sol will make you happy. They have a regular menu items plus three meal specials that change weekly. It is not a typical restaurant service, but it has never disappointed my family of four for monthly or more visits...

Their fish taco's are amazing. But you will need one of their Texas Margaritas to make it just right. My only problem with this restaurant is When Is it Open. I have taken friends and family their many times because I brag about them so much and NOT Open. Usually not a planned but an impromptu meal. Gotta check their... More

This is a great place, very popular -- good tacos, good margaritas. If you need a tasty, quality fast Mexican fix, definitely check it out -- just be prepared for a bit of a line.

We waited forty minutes. Was well worth it. Plenty of tables. Great atmosphere and awesome tacos. Would just suggest including corn tortilla as an option.

This is a good example of how sometimes people follow the crowd. Don't do that. We stood 45 minutes in line to eat tacos that were at best average. The place looks cool cause it's simple BUT the food was at best average. Want a better place for Latin food ? Go to Calle Latina a few blocks away.

The food here is quite delicious. The atmosphere is simple, you walk in, order and pay at the cash register, seat yourself and the food is brought to you. We had the cheeseburger tacos and the brisket tacos. Both were very tasty. The tacos are on the small side so I would order at least two for a meal. We'll... More

Of the taquerias around, the best and has been around for a long time. I prefer to hit it when the lines are not so long and sittting at the counter can avoid that as well, if there is space.

I love the dishes and they are consistently good but the line out the door is no fun. Usually the line moves quick but it's still 20min or longer wait. I guess if you stand there and drink a Margarita, which is delicious, then the wait isn't so bad.
