Round Two

20 Feb

We had another outing to Taqueria Del Sol.

I am totally addicted to their Memphis and Brisket soft tacos served to you within minutes of being seated.

Salsa trio and chips with a margarita on the rocks.

I had to have the zesty shrimp corn chowder again and it was even better this second time around.

I love this area known as the Westside Urban Market. There are so many different and unique stores surrounding the area and across the bridge.

Plus, it has another one of my  favorite places to eat, JCT Kitchen & Bar.

It was a lovely day for a stroll around the area while waiting for our restaurant to open and it’s a good thing we arrived so early because people were already starting to form a line waiting for the doors to open.

Cravin’ Mexican

and right next to my favorite Atlanta restaurant, JCT.

Taqueria del Sol has a few rolling glass walls that they open up during the warmer months on the warehouse style inside part of the restaurant with an attached covered outside area. I would consider this place a semi-fast food restaurant since you wait outside in a line, then go up to the counter and order, take a seat, and someone brings out your food for you…. like Pei Wei Asian Diner, but minus the number on the table.

The meal was very tasty, it’s quick, love the artsy area, and it was inexpensive. We spent under 20 bucks and left very satisfied. Plus, they have awesome sweet tea!

A cup of shrimp corn chowder (loved the hint of cajun spice to it)

Memphis tacos, a Brisket taco, and a Carnita taco

I’ve got my eye on trying the salsa trio so, until next time Taqueria del Sol.

Luis had his school orientation yesterday and was finally able to get his school card (buzz card) and sing up for his classes for his first semester.  Luis is now a real Georgia Tech student.  He will be taking six classes and might add on another one.  This semester’s total was 14k – wow!  Let’s hope our in-state can kick in by next semester and bring down that cost.

Wish Luis all the best for all his study hours ahead!!
