Sonora Grill

Map & Directions 920 E. Lake St., 126
Minneapolis, MN 55407


City Pages' Description

The Midtown Global Market is home to several Mexican restaurants, but Sonora Grill distinguishes itself by adding influences from Spain and South America and submitting traditional dishes to a gourmet chef's makeover. Sonora’s signature item is the caramelo, which despite its dessert-y sounding name, is actually just code for a taco served with melted cheese. Sonora serves theirs on the small side, but packed with fabulous fillings like pork, chicken, beef, fried shrimp, slow-cooked tongue, and crispy eggplant. To add richness and textural interest, the caramelos are topped with a bit of fresh salsa, leaves of cilantro, shredded cabbage, and garlicky aioli. In addition to these $2.50 bites, Sonora also makes its own pinchos - marinated skewered meats, hot dogs on Salty Tart buns, and fresh salad topped with grilled tilapia to round out the lighter offerings.

Tips from foursquare

  • Heavy Table on 12/16/11

    The Pork Guajillo Bocadillo is fork tender and the sleeper hit is the lightly fried eggplant bocadillo with chimichurri aioli.

  • Kevin B. on 09/15/11

    The eggplant fries are melt in your mouth delicious.

  • Anastasia S. on 04/29/12

    The eggplant bocadillo is the best vegetarian sandwich. These guys work long hours to make stellar from scratch food you wont find anywhere

  • Aaron H. on 08/07/11

    You have to try the Sonora Dog and the Shrimp Tacos

  • Beth M. on 03/25/13

    Red tempura shrimp caramelos. That is all.
