Taqueria del Sol was founded on two things: friendship and a passion for great food. After moving to America from Mexico to pursue a music career, Executive Chef Eddie Hernandez found himself in Atlanta, GA after a failed recording contract in Houston, TX. Shortly after moving, Eddie connected with Owner Mike Klank, a Tennessee native with an engineering degree from Georgia Tech, and he gave the rocker with long hair and a pierced ear a chance in the El Azteca kitchen.
Since opening the first Taqueria del Sol in 2000, diners have been invited to try inventive and delicious options for lunch and dinner – after waiting in the infamous line, of course. While the menu is driven by Mexican cuisine, many of the menu items feature a cross-cultural flair giving diners the true one-of-a-kind experience that only Taqueria del Sol can offer.

It was in Atlanta, Georgia, that Nuevo Laredo Cantina was opened in the Summer of 1992 by owner Chance Evans. A lover of Mexico, its food, and culture, he first brought authentic Mexican fare to Atlanta in the 1980s when he opened the U.S. Bar Y Grill.
In its campy, off-the-beaten-path location, Nuevo Laredo Cantina opened its doors with the sole intention of offering authentic, home-cooked Mexican food to the lunch patrons of the surrounding industries.

Bone Garden Cantina is owned by Michael and Kristen Benoit, a husband and wife team in love with Mexican food and agave spirits. Michael has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant business as the owner of The Vortex Bar & Grill, which he opened in Atlanta back in 1992. A few years after getting married, Michael and Kristen opened Bone Garden Cantina in 2008 with a mission to serve authentic Mexican food made from scratch every day. They chose a tiny location off the beaten path and fill it with colorful folk art inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead holiday. Michael, with years of experience as a working artist prior to his start in the restaurant industry, created much of the artwork for Bone Garden. Over time, many other local painters, tattoo artists, and friends have helped fill Bone Garden’s walls with original art that reflects Mexico’s vibrant culture.

At age 15, Rosalia Ruiz started selling traditional food and snacks in her home state of origin Oaxaca, Mexico. In 1995, she had the opportunity to travel to the USA with her husband, Oscar Arteaga, arriving at Dekalb County in Georgia. During a visit to a local flea market, Rosalia came up with the idea of selling traditional Mexican food. With very few resources and a very basic grasp of the English language, they began to sell tamales.
After two years, Rosalia and Oscar saved up enough money to buy a food truck, which was located on North Harston Rd, at Stone Mountain. After years of struggles and perseverance, they were able to expand their business to a brick-and-mortar location in Clayton County on 6768 Tara Boulevard. For five years, “Taqueria La Oaxaqueña” operated at that location, where they earned the loyalty of their clients with their delicious traditional Oaxacan food.
