Portions are huge served hot. Tacos are to die for. Beans are the best I have had. Priced cheap for what you get. Enchiladas superb. Rice tasty.

Baja Sonora is a fairly Spartan fast food spot. Service is quick and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. I'll be generous and say the food has been detuned for the average American palate. Baja Sonora may call their fare tacos, tamales etc and it does look similar to real Mexican Antojos, but the pizzaz just isn't there. If you... More

I've heard Baja Sonora had great Mexican food, and being from Georgia, I needed to try it for myself. I was not disappointed. I had the chile Colorado Baja Burrito which was extremely large and good. I would definitely go back again.

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.
