Maybe it’s the Southern-meets-Mexican menu, the great margaritas, or the fact that it’s super affordable. Most likely though, the reason we love Taqueria Del Sol so much is all of those things combined. The menu has things like brisket enchiladas and a fried fish taco that’s one of our favorites, and almost everything is under $5. Just know, though, their queso is really the shining star. And if you’re visiting from a queso-deprived city, there’s nothing stopping you from smuggling back a few frozen containers of it on the plane.
