10 Favorite Mexican Restaurants Along Sebastopol Road in Santa Rosa

Written by Ricardo Ibarra

Along a stretch of Sebastopol Road in southwest Santa Rosa, there are at least 10 businesses that serve Mexican food to neighborhood diners and people all around Sonoma County who drive there just to get a taco fix.

The strip of Mexican restaurants in the Roseland area include taco trucks, tamales pop ups, shops with warm bowls full of pozole or birria. Burritos, quesadillas, tortas, sopes, tostadas and plenty of other dishes.

Here’s a list of places to get that hot bite, starting from Dutton Avenue all the way down to Stony Point Road. You’ll probably get nice pictures for your #mexicanfoodporn posts on social media.


Tacos al Carbón. Ricardo Ibarra / La Prensa Sonoma

Street-like quality with a plus of being in an indoor restaurant setting. Tacos al Carbón opened this past year with a new standard on tacos. 500 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa. Open 10am-10pm, weekends 8am-10pm.

Food options go from quesadillas with grilled vegetables, to salads, tacos, enchiladas, tamales and more. 443 Dutton Ave, Santa Rosa.

We’ve heard their tortas are of the tastiest in Sebastopol Road. Also a good option for regular tacos, burritos and quesadillas. Has access to parking. 565 Sebastopol Road, Santa Rosa.


De nuestros favoritos: los tacos de lengua de El Roy’s. Aquí dos a punto de ser devorados. Ricardo Ibarra / La Prensa Sonoma

El Roy’s, a classic taco truck on West Ave and Sebastopol Road. There’s no mistake about what you get at this place. It’s all legit, the salsa, the tortillas, the meats. Your taco dream is here. 760 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.

This is how your taco plate should look like. With one of each of your favorite meats covered in chopped cilantro, onion and  splashed with salsa throughout. 816 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.

People usually get confused with this place, right behind Delicias Elenita’s taco truck. Even though they share the owner, they’re to separated businesses. Elenita’s devoted to tacos and tamales, La Fondita has a full Mexican menu. 816 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.


Los clásicos tacos al vapor de El Paisa son de cabeza y barbacoa, aquí acompañados por un champurrado. Ricardo Ibarra / La Prensa Sonoma

What makes this food truck unique is their Tacos al Vapor, made with barbacoa and cabeza. 1175 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.


Una trinidad de tacos caen bien a toda hora, aquí uno de carne asada, chorizo y al pastor, en El Pepe’s, donde puede servirse diferentes salsas. Ricardo Ibarra / La Prensa Sonoma

Tacos with double tortilla and a bunch of meat. The salsa bar is amazing. 1510 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.


POZOLE. Some of us enjoyed it at La Texanita, Santa Rosa. Ricardo Ibarra / La Prensa Sonoma

Their pozole and birria are probably the best in the area, maybe because they do it Jalisco style, which is my part of the world. They also have the other good stuff — tortas, tostadas, sopes, burritos. Great atmosphere too. 1667 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.


Dos de asada y dos al pastor, por favor., en Súper Taco. Ricardo Ibarra / La Prensa Sonoma

Close to Stony Point Road, the strip of Mexican restaurants comes to an end with Super Taco. If you want to avoid the crowd at other food trucks, this is the place to go. 1758 Sebastopol Rd, Santa Rosa.
