Great place to get some simple tacos. More Americanized tacos.. fried chicken, fish, brisket. I ordered the brisket tacos and the fish taco. Brisket taco was just ok. Fish taco- took a bite and did not like it At all. I left it in my plate,when an employee( possibly the manager) saw the taco he asked if he could get... More

Have eaten here at least 7 or 8 times and love it. You wait in line and order at the counter, doesn't open for dinner until 5:30. If you get there right at 5:30 there will likely be a decent line. I usually get the carnitas tacos and brisket tacos which are excellent. Family and friends have tried the other... More

We have gone to Taqueria del Sol too many times to count and always enjoy. It is a drop-in, eat and dash, kind of spot. This place is a "Southern twist" on Mexican food. The Salsa Trio is an excellent starter. All tacos are good but The Memphis is a must for me. I prefer their margaritas on the rocks... More

I read this was a busy place with lines. But I went after typical lunch hours, and although still busy, got a seat. I had the blue plate special (pork with rice) and a brisket taco. Service is great and the food was fresh and very tasty. I asked 'what am I missing' and the counter person suggested turnip greens.... More

Taqueria Del Sol is simple goodness. They pretty much have tacos, enchiladas, cheese dip, guacamole salsa and a few sides. It is yummy. Be prepared to wait though. There is typically always a 20 to 30 minute line. You cannot, let me repeat cannot, sit down before you order. They will ask you to get up. Initially I was annoyed... More

I had the Memphis taco and it was the best thing I've had in a while. The bbq sauce is a perfect accent to the coleslaw, something I usually hate. I had to restrain myself from getting another. I also had the chips and salsa, which was equally good. I will be returning soon.

Several people had told us what a great place this was. People outside waiting for it to open usually means a great place. Wrong. Chips and dip, usually free at other places, cost @$4. 1/2 cup guacamole @$4. Enchiladas were no better than a Taco Bell. Yuk. Spend your money at Twisted Taco or No Mas Cantina and don't be...
