DTLA’s famed Sonoratown to open Long Beach location in former Under the Sun space


Oh yes, Long Beach: Chivichangas and caramelos are coming as Sonoratown—the flour-tortilla empire that is a staple in Downtown Los Angeles and often appears on Best Of lists around the country—will be opening its first Long Beach location, as first reported by LA TACO.

Opening in the former Under the Sun space across from Ammatolí on 3rd Street in Downtown Long Beach—which closed its doors back in March of this year—Sonoratown opened its OG DTLA location in 2016 followed by another location in Midtown near LACMA.

“I just wanted to let you know that we signed a lease on a space today in Downtown Long Beach—we’re over the moon,” co-owner Jennifer Feltham said. “Teo [Diaz-Rodriguez Jr., co-founder] went to CSULB and he’s always loved Long Beach so much. We’re both ecstatic to be coming to the neighborhood.”

What to expect? Feltham tells LA TACO that there could be new menu items given their larger kitchen—they introduced cabeza to their second location—but that is all up in the air.

They are expected to open the DTLB location next year.

Sonoratown will be located 244 E. 3rd St.
