The Sierra Bonita Grill is named after the historic Sierra Bonita Ranch in South Eastern Arizona. Founded by Henry Hooker in 1872, the Sierra Bonita Ranch was known for it’s hospitality and innovative ranching methods. We would like to celebrate the spirit represented by Mr. Hooker and other pioneer ranches throughout Arizona with our restaurant and hope to continue the tradition of great food and hospitality. Our menu reflects the hearty cooking style of Southern Arizona ranches, many of which were started by Spanish and Mexican families. We will continue to explore the ongoing Mexican and Latin influences on this area’s culture and food. Patio seating available to accommodate 30 people.

One of my Favorite Places!

This is my "go to" place for out of town social or business guests. Upscale "old Phoenix" vibe that tends to attract both locals and out- of-towners for both dates and family gatherings. Their pesole is among the best I have eaten. Terrific service.

We visited with a group of 10 for brunch. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. The food was great and as always in American restaurants, enormous. It is hard to serve a large group and get everything right, but they did. Our table was one large one and we did not feel squashed in or over looked by others.... More

While working on a project, I spent three weeks in town over two trips. The last night arrived and I realized that I had not had any Southwestern food while in town. I spotted this place on TripAdvisor, and suggested to my colleagues that we give it a try. Once we found the place, we were not disappointed. They have... More

Delicious food, excellent service and awesome homemade gelato. Additional ly, the homemade fresh juice margaritas were phenomenal. Most places are so loud you can't talk, at SB, we were able to enjoy great conversation too. A new fav!

we went with friends who have been several times but this was our first visit. The place is tucked away with a maze of parking spaces. Valet is available. The inside is not small but warm and intimate and relaxed. The food was delicious. We had the pork belly and guacamole for starters. We had fish tacos, enchiladas, the carne... More

Middle of the afternoon; warm sunny Sunday. Dropped in to a cool & comfortable southwest locale. After being seated in a very comfortable booth, we were welcomed by a kind server who brought ice water and menu's. We ordered drinks. I had an ice cold Michelob and spouse a glass of Cambia Chardonnay. The menu was varied and offered southwestern... More

I had the jalapeno poppers and they were excellent. The spice grilled chicken sandwich was also the best chicken sandwich I have ever had. The service was incredible. Not overly hovering, but very attentive.

Friends made reservations to meet us at Sierra Bonita Grill while we were visiting Phoenix area and we're glad they did. Parking's in a maze of lots around the bldg but available even at peak time around 7pm. Seating was immediate and our waiter immediately took and delivered our drink orders. There was no pressure to order our meals immediately... More

We really enjoyed our evening at Sierra Bonita - my husband found it via a Google search of "southwestern restaurants Phoenix" and liked the photo. I liked the menu! So off we went, parked the car with a friendly valet, were greeted by a sweet hostess, promptly given water, and then immediately approached by our helpful waitress Keely who guided... More
