Taqueria del Sol to open Orlando Location on October 1

The company that brought the Five Guys Burgers & Fries to the Central Florida area are now planning to introduce us to another restaurant brand.


Called Taqueria del Sol, it will open in the former O’Boys Real Smoked Bar-B-Q restaurant space (3138 S. Orange Ave.), south of downtown Orlando.

The new casual dining restaurant will open October 1, 2012, with 150-seats. They plan to hire 30-40 employees.

The menu is primarily southwestern cuisine.

Taqueria del Sol was picked by Bon Appétit and Food Network as a “Top American Restaurant,” and owners Mike Klank and Chef Hernandez have been nominated twice for the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Restaurateurs in 2011 and 2012.
