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.

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.
