“Fried Chicken. Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Got the Blue Plate Special of the Day: Fried Chicken. Yum. The tacos are usually what I order, but the fried chicken on Ancho Mashed Potatoes was too good to pass up.

“Good reasonably priced food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

My wife and I are regular customers. The system of standing in line to order and then finding a table is a bit quirky to some but it works. You can also check in with whoever is keeping a waiting list for the bar and sit down and order from there as seats are available. This works well for couples or singles.

“One of the best "light" meals in Atlanta.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This has consistently been one of my favorite restaurants for the past ten years. It has always been a real treat, even if the lines are quite long. Amazingly efficient and quick service once you are through the line. We've transitioned pretty successfully to taking our kids, who do find the normal items a bit spicy, but love the kid's menu. Don't forget a margarita on the rock with salt!

“Always a good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Taqueria del Sol is always a great place to go for tasty simple Mexican. The fish tacos and salsa trio are excellent! The line to get a table can get long, so order a margarita while you wait. If you want to have a long drawn out meal, this isn't the place to go. They turn over tables quickly. The laid back atmosphere is family friendly and perfect for a nice summer or fall evening.

“First Time Visitor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Ate here today for the first time. I work in downtown Decatur and pass the place every day but during lunch the line is usually too long so I don't go.

Went on lunch late today, so decided to visit since I was talking about Mexican food earlier and they came up.

I got the blue plate special and it was decent, not too salty. But it was typical Mexican restaurant IMO and not worth the hype that the place gets. I live near downtown Atlanta and know at least 3 other restaurants that aren't chains like this one that are better than this one.

But they were decent and they were not super expensive. I thought the blue plate special was reasonably priced, about $7 for carne/piece of steak, an enchilada, and rice. I'll probably go back and try a taco. They were over $2 for one and I was afraid they'd be regular sized and I'd have to buy 3 or 4 to be satisfied so went with the special.

They have a really small menu for a Mexican restaurant IMO.
