Locally owned Mexican restaurant opens in Litchfield


LITCHFIELD -- Customers have been crowding into the new Sonora's Mexican bar and restaurant in Litchfield for the past month.

"They say they've been waiting for this kind of restaurant," owner Juan Perez said as he sat in a booth after a lunch hour last week.

The customers also like that it's a local restaurant, he said. A previous Mexican restaurant at the same U.S. Highway 12 location had closed some time ago.
