Sonia’s Tacos

After an evening of patronizing only bars named after their streets (The York and The Verdugo), the York Blvd guys and one of our beautiful readers needed some tacos in Eagle Rock. Leo’s is an easy standby, but seeing as he now has a sign asking “please allow 30 min max for your food on weekends”, we decided to cross over to the enemy and eat at Sonia’s.

Aside: We need to start spreading the word at Oxy to get these kids to start branching out beyond eating only at Leo’s. About 90% of his latenight customers have the ubiquitous Oxy keychain around their neck.

For those unfamiliar with the telenovela that is the Northeast taco truck scene, Sonia is Leo’s ex-wife. She worked by his side until the two divorced and she started her own competing truck. For some real dramatic irony you can check out the film on Leo’s here. Especially poigniant are the scenes watching the two work together with Sonia admitting that she really doesn’t like the work and sometimes has difficulty working in such close proximity with her then husband. Both have new members of the opposite sex working by their side (now if we could throw in an evil railroad barron, a nymphomaniacal stepmother, and a dream sequence, we might have a script).

Tacos de Pastor y de Asada

Anyhow, we arrived on the corner of Eagle Rock Blvd. and Fair Park ready to mash some tacos. Per usual, Sonia’s came through. The wait was minimal (certainly less than Leo’s) and the tacos had a nice extra kick to them. Sonia serves her asada with a nice mixture of salsa and guacamole that warms your tongue and belly without making water a necessity. It’s a bit out of the way for me to be making frequent trips but it’s a great alternative to the hyped and packed Leos.
