El Roy's Express Sonoma County

Are you a taco enthusiast seeking the perfect spot for a savory and satisfying taco fix in Sonoma County?

Look no further than El Roy’s – the most requested taco place on my Instagram feed and a local treasure that’s winning hearts (and stomachs) across the region. These iconic orange trucks have been making waves all over Sonoma County, and they even have a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Petaluma. Curious to see what the fuss was all about, I recently ventured to their newest truck located conveniently near Julliard Park. And let me tell you, it’s easy to understand why they’ve garnered such a devoted following.

The Shrimp Tacos

While El Roy’s offers a diverse menu that boasts a range of delectable options, it’s their shrimp tacos that have become the stuff of legends among locals.

Picture this: plump, succulent shrimp nestled within your choice of soft or hard shell tacos, each bite delivering an explosion of flavor that will leave you craving more. These aren’t just any shrimp tacos; they’re some of the best you’ll try.

It’s in the Sauce

One thing that immediately sets El Roy’s apart is their extraordinary sauce. It’s a creamy, dreamy concoction that plays matchmaker between the tender shrimp and the crunchy, flavorful onions in each taco.

This milky salsa is the secret ingredient that elevates their shrimp tacos from good to extraordinary. It’s a unique flavor profile that’s both indulgent and addictive, and it’s the kind of sauce that makes you want to keep dipping, savoring every last morsel.

Hard Shell Taco Vs Soft Shell Taco

For those who prefer the comforting embrace of a soft taco, El Roy’s offers a tender tortilla that pairs perfectly with succulent shrimp in their creamy sauce with onions mix. It’s a more simple version of their crunchy taco that is also a foodie favorite.

On the other hand, if you’re a fan of the satisfying crunch of a hard shell taco, El Roy’s has you covered as well. These tacos feature the same succulent shrimp in their creamy sauce and onion mix but come with an extra layer of richness – crema and Mexican cheese. The crispy shell, juicy shrimp, crema, cheese, and onions create a bold and delightful contrast of textures and flavors that’s sure to have your taste buds dancing.

I personally enjoyed the soft shell taco over the hard shell but most people on my Instagram prefer the Crunch Hard Shell Tacos.
