Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover - Excellent Value, Delicious Food

My wife and I walked over to Baja Sonora while staying at the Long Beach Marriott. It is a short walk and well worth the payoff. I wasn't entirely impressed approaching from the parking lot. This isn't exactly what one might refer to as "curb appeal." But there was already a line inside... read more

Long standing favorite "go-to" place. Love it for casual dining, take out and catering. Great food, friendly prices, staff is always accommodating. Try the fajita salad, soft tacos with sour cream and guacamole, soups - all good. Love that the owners are involved in the community and almost always at the restaurant.

It is all good at this fast food Mexican restaurant. The carne asada tacos are huge and include guacamole. Their salsa bar has some of the best salsa I have ever had.

****BEWARE***** FOOD-DECENT, CUSTOMER SERVICE -HORRIBLE. I am finally leaving a review after several visits. The food is decent depending on the day of the week... Salsa and chips the best. Waiting for a to-go order usually takes 20 minutes at best. I have noticed that the blonde (taking orders) that I seem to get on most visits has a poor... More

Heard about it and had to try it. I was told it was very good and close to the Marriott hotel, 2 blocks. Had a great Quesadilla, beans, rice and drink for 11.06. Also, house made chips and sauce, delicious. A must try that will keep you coming for more!

Was staying at the Marriott which is around the corner from Baja Sonora and looking for some local non-hotel food. What a pleasant surprise? I had the chicken enchilada & a hard beef taco. Included with this combo was rice and beans. Both of these items were very tasty. The sauce was perfect and the chicken and beef were very... More

I've ordered to go a few times with Co workers for lunch but my husband and and I ate there recently and we loved it! Kinda small inside but the food is so delicious! My favorite is the shredded beef salad, it's so flavorful you don't even need dressing. We will definitely be returning!

Although the self-service chips and drinks is a bit of a...novelty, the food is truly excellent. I can't really find fault in anything; just wonderful Mexican food. Loved it!

Visiting Long Beach on business and decided to leave the Marriott for dinner. Based on the reviews and closeness of the restaurant decides to go to Baja Sonora. Its short on atmosphere but long on flavor. I had a cheese enchilada and relleno with rice and beans. I usually don't eat the beans but after one bite I was hooked.... More
