Local restaurant with fresh ingredients, awesome guacamole and cheap prices. Win in my book.
Wonderful and fresh Mexican food. Great choice for a quick lunch.
Great food, poor service – The Tacos here are really good along with the rest of the menu. It is always packed and has all kinds of people coming in there, but the one thing that makes it only get 3 stars is the service. They are not friendly, they kind of give you dirty looks from time to time if they don't like what you said or you made your order to complicated. Our waiter dissappeared on us, and we sat with empty drink cups for like 15 minutes before I flagged someone down and asked them if they could get us some drinks. They said they would find my waiter and he still took another 5 minutes before he came. Its a shame that such good food goes to waste with such poor service.
Good food - not at all family friendly! – We've always enjoyed their tacos - despite their long lines. However, they are not in any fashion or form family friendly! They do give you dirty looks when you bring in a lil' one...
so so food – The tacos are good and cheap, but the service here is cheap too. The waiter was rude and disappeared for almost half the night. We had to flag down a different person, who told us that he would look for our waiter.
service isn't good – The food is forgettable, but the customer service was not. Seriously, I wonder how this place stays open with all the bad wait staff reviews its been getting. The waiters were very slow with our orders and our refills. I understand that food takes time to cook, but when it takes more than 30 minutes, there's something seriously wrong.
If I wanted thrashy service I would have just gone to some seedy dive. Save yourself the money and the aggravation
RUDE!!! – I had actually been a frequent guest at this restaurant since it is close to my office and very affordable. On my last visit, the gentleman at the cash register verbally berated my friend. He was extremely condescending and dismissive and we left with my friend in tears. There is no way I will EVER step foot in this place again. There are too many other options in Atlanta that offer quality food with quality customer service.
For Heaven's Sake, Why? – "Northern hospitality with Southern efficiency."
This is for the Decatur location - can't seem to move it though. Anyway...
Avoid this Faux-ican disaster. The only thing authentic was my disgust.
We got such terrible and unjustified treatment here from the manager (as a group of people of color) that we thought the place might be run by bigots. Was ready to call the NAACP, until I read the citysearch reviews and learned that they are equal opportunity douchebags. And, seriously, the food is just "okay," at best. I don't see what the hype is about. Por favor.
This place is so not worth it. You'll get better food and much better treatment elsewhere. I can only explain this place's popularity as a successful psychological manipulation - making people think that if the lines are long and customers put up with abuse, the food must be good and the place is worth it. Trust me, it ain't. Don't fall for it.
I don't get it – This is a great place for college kids who want to get a couple of cheap tacos, eat quickly, and leave the restaurant. With all the tasty and affordable Mexican food in Atlanta, I'd rather sit at a table and enjoy my food comfortably versus waiting in a long line with no guarantee of a table...just for a couple of $2 tacos. It might be best in the dead of winter when the lines are shorter, but I will go elsewhere for a cheap Mexican fix.
Good food, awful straff – It's a shame that a place like Taqueria Del Sol that serves good food has to employ such A-holes to work there. I never seen such a collection of rude individuals in one place like I have at the Taqueria - Howell Mill location. The head A-hole is the bald headed guy with the beard. God forbid you need something and ask that fellow.
I've been going there for nine years. I accepted the rude people that worked there because I liked the food. But there comes a point in which you become sick of being treated like garbage. I have a choice and I'm not going back.
