Long lines, familiar faces and that lemon cream sauce

At this point, what else could it be? Taqueria del Sol, Decatur’s goldmine for date nights, girls’ night out or family dinners continues to be an iconic eatery.

Not only is the food to die for (I mean, just drive by on a Friday or Saturday and look at the massive line that wraps around the parking lot), but eating at “Taq” has become a rite of passage for Decatur teens, too.

Pull up on any night of the week and you’ll be greeted by the familiar faces of neighbors, friends and acquaintances. But Taq is more than a commonplace for community eats. After all, there’s a reason it’s so popular. Maybe it’s the low prices and open-air atmosphere, or maybe it’s simply just the food.

With a menu stocked full of mouth watering tacos, enchiladas covered in a variety of Mexican-inspired sauces and delicious sides that get your stomach grumbling, Taqueria del Sol has all of the essentials.
