First Look at El Sonorense

I was driving home as dinner was ready. On my way, I passed by a food truck I’ve never seen before called El Sonorense. Then I was presented a dilemma: do I stop by real quick for the sake of a blog? Or do I play the role of good family man and go straight home knowing dinner was waiting?

Well, since you are reading this blog, you know I chose option one.

My order was very light because I had to save room for dinner. They had three taco options on the menu, asada, al pastor and birria. I went with one of each.

The tacos didn’t take long and came with three sauces.

I pulled into the parking lot and ate the tacos so I could hide the evidence from family (even though, there’s a high likelihood they’ll see the proof here).

Food karma got the best of me as the tacos were not good. I didn’t even finish them. The asada tasted as if the meat was reheated over and over. The al pastor had a gritty texture and lacked flavor. Then the birria was probably the toughest birria I’ve ever had in town. All the tacos looked dry when I opened my container, but I was hoping that they tasted better than they looked.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a winner of a visit. On the bright side, I had dinner waiting for me at home, which was much better.

  1. Very poor choice of selection of food their specialty is either the Mexican Hamburger or Mexican Hot Dog please try again. This is a poor review. Thank you!
