Mexican food that is Ahuaaa! Good

This place makes some very delicious Mexican food. I highly recommend it. The taco plates is a hearty plate to enjoy when you are wanting to be satisfied. It has a little plate of homemade beans whole on the side with a sprinkle of cheese on top of it. A side of rice with the tacos. You can ask... read more

This is my favorite Mexican Restaurant. I have never had anything I didn't like. Sobe and the employees are friendly and they take care of all the tables together. This place has gotten really popular and sometimes they get overwhelmed so service is a little slow, but overall everything is great

Every few weeks, my wife and I, along with her parents, have lunch at sobe's. The food is always fresh (very important with Mexican food, as old grease smells and tastes like fish) the service is nice and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant is tucked away in the corner of a mini-mall, so it has loads of free parking.... More

This is a typical Americanized version of bland, westernized Mexican food. Although it was fine for what it was, I really expected more being that I was only a few miles from the Mexican border. If you like Chevy's, El Torito or Taco Bell, this is the place for you. If you want really good Mexican food, keep looking. The... More

Well Sobe's was open - we called - and when we entered we may have beent the first of the day. The Waitress was nice and cheerful and helpful. The Menu was... More

Try the Sonora Taco: shredded beef in a deep fried flour tortilla with tomatillo sauce. Awesome. Nobody makes these Sonora tacos as good as Sobe's. I recommend this place for real quality authentic Mexican food.

The fish tacos are just wonderful. I also had their quesadilla which was very good. They were a little busy so the service was a little slow but I wasn't in a rush so it was fine.
