Fodor's Review

Don't let the long lines outside this counter-service eatery discourage you. They move quickly, and once you get in you'll be rewarded with a full bar, a wide selection of tacos and enchiladas, unusual sides like spicy collard greens and jalapeño coleslaw, a fabulous trio of salsas, and not-to-be-missed chunky guacamole. Don't grab a table before you order or you'll get glares from those waiting in line.

Worst Experience Ever!!!!

I just had the worst restaurant dining experience at Taqueria del Sol in Decatur. After waiting 45 minutes in line, spending nearly $40 for a family dining experience, I was harassed by the manager to the degree that my wife and family had to leave the restaurant. I have spoken to others and have found similar complaints, with people within our party noting that they have friends that refuse to go there after having similar experiences with the ill

tempered manager. When we arrived and saw an old friend there, we decided to sit together. The space allotted would not fit the group around the table (7 adults, 3 kids). We tried to put another table together and were told we were not allowed. The server could not place the food for my wife, son and myself in our area since there was not enough room Frustrated, we decided to separate and sit at a separate table. The manager immediately ran over and told us we weren't allowed to sit at the table. The manager was very rude, treating my wife in a hostile unprofessional manner. I told him to just give us to go boxes and that we would leave. He came back, placed the foil and plates on the table, and rudely said: Now Leave! I am never going to tagueria again. Ever. I hope everyone who reads this review boycotts Taqueria. The management does not appreciate families. They do not want your business. Go somewhere where you are appreciated. Afterwards, my family stopped at Zestos for some ice-cream. In contrast, the drive thru at Zesto was so much more hospitable. The experience was so bad at Taqueria, I have the impression that complaining directly wouldn't even matter. The busboy who told us the person who had treated us so badly was the manager did so while cringing. It was clear he feared retribution. It was an awful, awful experience. I will never, ever, ever go to Taqueria del Sol again. Especially in Decatur. The worst dining experience ever!!!!!!
