In 1927, George and Aurelia Salisbury open a little Mexican restaurant on the outskirts of a small town named Los Angeles. That was the historic beginning to the rich tradition that is El Cholo.

El Cholo & Sonora Cafe Catering has been carrying on that tradition for nearly thirty years by providing our unique El Cholo dining experience in your homes, offices and special venues.

We feature full service Catering and bar service for private parties, corporate events and any special occasion you may have in mind.

Our Catering services feature authentic and traditional Mexican, Southwest dishes and more, which have come from family recipes dating back to 1923.
