We descended into Sonora in a large group, which the staff accommodated graciously even though they were busy. Food was all terrific! Drinks seemed pricey.

I love the mushroom tacos (they call them caramelos) here. I ALWAYS get 1 or 2 of them, along with eggplant fries and elote (corn on the cob). This time we also got chips and salsa and guacamole. All very good.

I love the food here. I just cannot get enough of the mushroom caramelo (their version of street tacos). They are so frapping good. I had the ultimo bloody mary but at $12 that was too much. Next time I'll order the regular one for...More

Started with their chips and a very good smokey salsa dip. Then had Elote-Corn on the Cob. My wife had Paella (seasoned rice, chicken, chorizo & mixed fresh seafood). Large enough portion that you can share. I had Chicken, Steak & Shrimp Pinchos (meat skewers)...More

Apart from serving up the best margaritas in the Twin Cities, there isn't much to distinguish Sonora. The food's OK, nothing special, and the selection is oddly narrow. Service on the night we were there was just plain terrible -- inattentive and slow. Value is...More

Yes! They have a really nice patio, some tables in the sun, some with umbrellas. You can hardly tell you're on Lake Street. Plus, the patio is usually just first come, first served.
