Great Hamburgers

My husband and I were on vacation in Sonora and saw in a local newspaper that they were voted “best hamburger” so we headed over there for lunch. We ordered the Diamondback and the Mushroom and Swiss burgers. The food took a while to come but when it did it was obvious why the place was so... read more

This grill was OK, the hamburger was pretty good but the salmon burger was so so. We had the pecan pie which was more nuts than goop so that was excellent. We added a scoop of ice cream which turned out to be the best part. The service was spotty and there was a bug on my plate but we... More

The Diamondback is a really good and solid place. Food, feeling and staff was all really great and I would definitely recommend a visit. It has a decent wine list and the burgers are generous, cooked the way you like it and super tasty.

I think it had the very best garlic fries, and a good wine list. We brought friends from St. George, Utah.

Good atmosphere and the food was very tasty. Had the pastrami and it was very good. We split a meal and there were no issues as they gave us more French fries.

Had a nice salmon dish. My mom had fish and chips that were very good. The fires are thin and crispy. My favorite kind. Had a Chai iced tea that was tasty but prove pretty sweet as I kept drinking it. The wait staff was friendly.

Diamondback is a pleasant restaurant, nice menu, good prices. Fits well with the Sonora gold rush ambiance, with some of the building's old stone and wood work tastefully 'revealed' in the décor. Had a Caesar salad that was OK, but was rather overwhelmed by dressing. Ordered tea, but the hot water tasted like old coffee urn water, so I had... More

Used to have the best burgers in town. Now since the new owners have taken over it is hit and miss. The food just seems to be different now, not quite as good as it used to be.
