It's loud and it's cramped and the service is as basic as it gets, but their delicious veggie burger more than makes up for it all. Parking is a definite problem, especially at peak times, but a quality burger, fries, and a drink for 8 bucks is worth a try on your next lunch foray into downtown Decatur.

This newly-opened burger bar is pretty good. Here are the basics: Location: Decatur - west Ponce. Parking is tight, depending on when you visit. Service: Not much. You wait in line, order at the counter, then sit with your number and the meal eventually comes your way. The restaurant has a low comfort level - it's quite basic. Food: The burgers are great! I loved mine. I've been about 4 times already and always had a good burger. The fries are good too. Value: It depends. For a burger meal, expect to pay about $8-$12 per person, depending on the sides, drinks and additions to your burger (some of which bring a surcharge). I personally think it is below average value because there is no table service and the atmosphere is loud and cramped. At those prices, you can go right next door to the Marlay House pub and get a burger that is nearly as good, albeit with less choice of toppings. Ambiance: If you go to Taqueria del Sol, you will be familiar with the vibe - crowded, loud (concrete floors), loads of strollers, etc. It feels about like a mall food court, with a funky edge. Overall: If you are serious about burgers and willing to pay a premium just for quality and choice of toppings, this place is for you. If you are an average burger fan like me, and value other things such as service, cost and ambiance, you might prefer to go to somewhere else.
