restaurants Reviewed by: James great food!
bahay kubo Reviewed by: Bong The food is good.
buffet Reviewed by: Ed The staff here are friendly. Food is good value for the price. It is not the best compared to other places but the shrimp, pork ribs and fried rice are worth the trip.
Asia Buffet Reviewed by: Edward From Fontana I like the dinner menu with the salted spicy shrimp with shell, the deep fried crab, baked mussels. The fried rice is tasty. Good value for the money.

About Sonora

Sonora is the county seat of Tuolumne County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 4,423. Sonora is the only incorporated community in Tuolumne County. Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, in the heart of California’s “Gold Country,” Sonora was named after the miners from Sonora, Mexico who settled the city in 1848. Known as the “Queen of the Southern Mines”, the city still has many buildings dating back to the 1800s. Incorporated in 1851, the hastily established mining camp took on the identity of a town and, while gold mining was the driving force of the city, it quickly evolved into the commercial, government, and cultural center for the area.

The journal of William Perkins offers an account of Sonora at the height of the gold rush.

Sonora's continuity today as an active city is almost entirely sustained via the tourism industry. Despite recent mill closings, small manufacturers have continued to move to Sonora from the Bay Area.
