Sol Taco

Posted by DID 10 Aug 2014 2 Comments

Sol Taco is a southern-inspired taco truck that is serving up locally-sourced ingredients on freshly made flour tortilla shells. It’s pretty awesome. All you really need to know is – BBQ and pickled okra in a taco. Seriously, BBQ and pickled okra in a taco. Unfortunately for us, Sol Taco mostly sticks to the streets of Raleigh.

We caught up with them outside Beer Durham, Durham’s newest bottle shop, and ordered one of each of their four tacos (buttermilk fried fish, roasted chicken avocado, burger and the aforementioned BBQ pork) and their black bean corn salad.

Sol Tacos seems to make everything after it’s been ordered. All of the tacos were fresh, filling and excellent. At $4 a pop, the tacos are large and two tacos made for a filling dinner.

The BBQ was the best, rich pulled pork topped with sliced pickled okra (side note: why aren’t we seeing pickled okra as a topping choice at BBQ joints around the state, an alternate to the vinegary slaw). The burger taco came in a close second, mostly for the indulgence factor. It’s a local ground chuck topped with pico, arugula and cheese. The fish taco is two large hunks of freshly fried fish that is light, crispy and topped with pickled radish and the roasted chicken is surprisingly juicy and topped with an avocado sauce and cojito cheese. Both were excellent.

The corn and black bean salad isn’t needed. The tacos are filling and it’s just a cold salad of black beans, corn and salsa.

Sol Taco is really awesome, the only real misstep is the lack of options for vegetarians. It seems like it’d be pretty simple to add a mushroom or potato taco to the menu. I’m guessing gluten-free folks could simply oder the tacos without the flour shell.

Keep up with where Sol Taco’s going to by by following them on twitter.
