“They have a Baja Burrito...”
Reviewed February 20, 2008

They have a Baja Burrito which is a 2lb. monstrosity (in a good way). The carnita meat is a bit salty but moist and tender, the chicken is safer. Great chips and salsa of course.

“My favorite Mexican place”
Reviewed May 25, 2007

The location on Clark Ave is my favorite Mexican restaurant. My favorite item on the menu is the hard shell tacos. The shells are light and crunchy. The burritos are huge and full of flavor. Baja Sonora doesn't skimp on the meat and cheese that fill the menu items, so there is no excuse for going away hungry. The variety of salsa in the salsa bar is good, ranging from mild to what is dubbed the 911. I have only tried the mild and the medium slasa, so cannot comment on the 911. Baja Sonora has a casual, homey atmosphere. Many times when I have come in I've seen either Mike or Mary, the owners, walking around or chatting with the customers.

“Baja Sonora on Clark Street”
Reviewed February 8, 2006

Baja Sonora has two locations: Downtown LB and East LB on Clark Avenue. I have been to both, and the downtown location is more of a true sit-down restaurant, while the East LB location is more casual. I eat most frequently at the East LB location, so I will review that one. Baja Sonora has been a hit from the moment it opened. The original location in East LB has been expanded to meet the high demand and was the catalyst for opening the second, Downtown location. Their specialty is the deep fried tacos (chicken or beef). Absolutely the best! Excellent variety of homemade salsas - the green is my favorite. All of their food is very good, with the exception of the albondigas soup. Soup flavor was good; I just didn't care for the very large chunks of vegetables. If they cut the veges smaller, it would be much better. The atmosphere is casual - you order, seat yourself, and they will bring the food to you. Self service drinks and salsa bar, with chips, too. They have a nice selection of beer for sale, too. Try the tacos or the taquitos - you won't be disappointed!
