I love the food here. Sobe is always there to oversee the creation of wonderful food. I love their tacos. They have the best salsa. Another wonderful dish is their Sanora Enchiladas. YUMMY

We had a very nice dinner here. We both got chicken burritos and enchiladas. We though the enchilada sauce was a little thick but everything tasted excellent. Superior service as well.

We were looking for Mexican food and more or less stumbled onto Sobe's. The food was really good, but there was something about the overall feel of the restaurant that appealed to me. It wasn't over the top decorated, but was just a clean solid...More
