Yummy Mexican food

Good Mexican food, a variety of salsas. Very brightly decorated. Music was modern, not mariachi band.

Baja Sonora is THE PLACE locals & visitors go on Tuesdays. You can tell by the line going out the door. Often times you will see air attendants and pilots in line from the Long Beach Airport. Baja Sonora is THAT GOOD. When the Grand Prix is happening, people make the trek up from downtown Long Beach to eat there.... More

My parents love it here and probably come once a week. The food is always good no matter what you order. Chips and salsa is very good as well. My Mom is VERY picky so if she eats here all the time it has to be good!

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 stretching to the door. Definitely a good... 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!
