Taqueria del Sol

Few things say “fresh” quite like a good taco does, and that’s what Taqueria del Sol offers. With locations in West Midtown (in the Westside Provisions District), Cheshire Bridge, and in Decatur, you can feast on some of the tastiest guacamole in the city, order up tacos or enchiladas, and if it’s cold outside, get yourself a bowl of chili.

Unlike most taco shops, which seem to collect knick-knacks that evoke So-Cal or Mexico, Taqueria del Sol is clean, uncluttered, and each location has big windows and a bright covered patio. If you didn’t know better you’d swear you could hear the surf right outside the window.

This is a first-come-first-serve operation, so when you get in line (and there’s probably going to be a line, and that’s a guarantee at lunch time), pick up a menu and start figuring out what you want to eat. The amazing staff move the line quickly, so you won’t have to wait very long to order. If you’re in a hurry, and there’s room at the bar, that’s the place to go.

Highlights

Tacos

Well, duh. With fillings from classic fried fish to shredded brisket topped with pico de gallo, you can’t really go wrong.

Shrimp Corn Chowder

Thick, creamy, a little kick in there, no skimping on the shrimp…Taqueria del Sol knows how to put together this Southwestern chowder that will have you getting back in line for more (seriously, why didn’t you sit at the bar?)

Guacamole

A little bit chunky, a little bit creamy, this is the Donnie and Marie of guacamole. No, that’s a compliment, we promise. The only problem with it is that there never seems to be enough (but really there’s plenty, we just really like guac).
