Our history begins…
The story of El Cholo reads like many American successes. A hard working couple discovers an opportunity in a newly adopted city and proceeds to build a lasting family business. What gets lost between the lines are the joys and challenges, relationships of a family that expands five generations.
Our tale begins with Alejandro Borquez and his culinary gifted wife, Rosa. Alejandro had a hunch that Los Angeles would enjoy Rosa's cooking as much as he did - and he was right. The seed of Alejandro's inspiration has grown from the tiny original Sonora Cafe, opened in 1923 in downtown Los Angeles, to a multi-generational restaurant business that spreads across Southern California.
To our satisfaction, a great number of the ideas we promoted have become Mexican restaurant staples, from combination plates to nachos to margaritas made with premium tequilas. Our green corn tamales ‘
are legendary, available only during the summer months when sweet corn is at its peak.
What we've always believed, from Grandma Rosa's first Sonora-style enchiladas to today's fajitas and seasonal tamales, is that our food along with our history and warm genuine hospitality are what truly sets our restaurant apart.
