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...

I thought the food and pricing was great, this location is noisy and a bit crowded with a line out the door the whole time. Some inside & outside seating, service is alright but you have to order everything at once as you don't have a tableside server

I enjoy this place as the service is vey helpful and they help to find you a seat while you eat for your food. The price and value are really worth it. The guacamole and chips are vey fresh. My favorite taco is the fried chicken one. The others are all good but that one to me is most original.... More

My wife and I come to this taqueria all the time. Delicious tacos good margaritas and my wife is a big fan of the enchiladas with the green salsa. Line is intimidating but it goes pretty fast. Parking is a hassle with the construction.
