Sonoma Taco Shop offers made to order Mexican food. Tacos, burritos, etc. It's healthy and well worth the price. If you want Taco Bell prices, go to Taco Bell. This place is clean, overly bright and not romantic -- it's a taco shop! The food is fresh, fast and relatively healthy. They have some great stuff, mole sauce, chimichangas, etc.... More

I went on a busy lunch time surge and stood in line about 10 minutes to order. The service was not really there for me. They seemed to prefer taking phone orders over people waiting in line. The food was pretty good. I just got a basic burrito it was filling and fresh tasting. I loved the small salsa bar... More

Sonoma Taco Shop was a pleasant surprise. You order at a walk-up counter inside a large restaurant. The prices were a little on the high side for a restaurant without table service. The food was very good, but the ambience was lacking. Again, for the prices, I wanted the atmosphere to be nicer. Overall, the food and service was good,... More

Great low calorie tacos!! However, their food is very high price for a taco shop. Plus, this shop has tons of nice workers who love making tacos.

It's nothing fancy, but there is a huge variety of choices, and the quality of the food is great. Plus, kids eat free, and they mark the healthier choices.

This is an okay Mexican restaurant that is inexpensive. The burritos are kind of strange, a they cook them so all the moisture comes out of the tortilla and it's hard and dry. But the other things are good. The nachos are excellent and probably have about 1 million calories.

We love Sonoma Taco Shop. The burritos are big and juicy. The tacos are full of fresh good ingredients. All are made to order. Its an open kitchen/grill area. Step up to the counter order your food and watch it being made. Or head over to the salsa bar and try out the different salsas with your chips. We love... More

This place has been turning out fresh and delicious food for many years. If you have never been you should really give it a shot, Personally I prefer the carnitas burrito. Plenty of fresh salsa available as well.
