We interviewed Roberto Córdoba, owner of Sofia’s Taqueria, about the business. View the YouTube video below!
Sofia’s Taqueria, located in the Rancho del Mar shopping center, is owned by Roberto Córdoba. Sofia’s is the oldest taqueria in Aptos, going way back to 1987. They pride themselves on a distinct, unique type of Mexican food you won’t find at most taquerias, with its authentic Jalisco style.
Unlike most Mexican taquerias, cabbage forms one of their primary ingredients instead of lettuce, and it lends an earthy flavor to their cuisine which is delightful and unexpected. All their dishes are homemade using fresh ingredients and combinations of herbs you won’t find anywhere else.
When you go to Sofia’s, you’d better come hungry – their portions are large, and it’s a rare guest who walks away hungry. They have special deals on Fajitas on Sundays, and make sure you also try one the signature Burrito Sofia’s . Also, try their soups and tortas for a little something special you may not find anywhere else. They feature a variety of meats, including chile verde, al pastor, carne asada, chicken (pollo), tilapia, and camarones (shrimp).
Tip: Try the carnitas burrito! It’s epic.
