We took a seat and waited for our food. I had the Chicken Guisada. For $10, I got an amazing amount of food. My husband insisted three chicken breasts must have been cut up to give me so much meat. The chicken was served with white rice, all in a brown gravy, with tortillas on the side. It was really very yummy, but I couldn't finish it all. My husband had several fish tacos. He was a little disappointed, but he was rather spoiled when he was first introduced to fish tacos in Kauai. The fish at Taqueria del Sol was fried and placed with tartar in a soft tortilla. He wished he had tried the beef brisket taco that was listed as being served with red chile sauce, cilantro and onions. Yet the fish taco meal (with a side of refried beans) was filling and quite inexpensive. The cheese dip for the chips was good, too.
I'm not sure I would drive out of my way to eat at Taqueria del Sol, but if I lived in the Northside area of Atlanta, I would eat there often. This is a definite bang-for-the-buck kinda place with decent food that is popular with a lot of people.

they also offer a range of salsa and cheese appetizers as well as enchiladas and special daily entrees. their menu finishes out with a nice variety of side dishes (i always get the jajapeno cole slaw, to go with my fish tacos!). the tacos cost $1.95 each, as do the sides, and the enchiladas are $2.95. the dinner entrees can range from $9.95 to $14.95. they also offer a full bar with a variety of tequilas you can't pronounce let alone sample masterfully.
the style of service adds even more interest to the experience: you pick up a paper menu at the door and wait in line to order at the register (this line can sometimes take as long as 45 minutes to survive, but once you've gotten to the counter, the hard part is behind you), and there are NO RESERVATIONS. once you order, you choose your own table among the possibilities inside (including a tall stainless steel square top seating large parties of up to 12 or 16 or smaller parties willing to mingle) or on the patio (which is heated in the winter). your food follows behind you promptly. the tacos are generally served in plastic baskets, which only serves to make diving into them that much more accessible!
this is by far and away my favorite place to eat in atlanta for its accessibility, the quality of the food and service, and generally the ambience and lack of pretense.
