Nice lunch spot

Came up to Sonora and found this really cute place. The hamburgers were great. Large. Enough to share. I had the eggplant sandwich. It was really good. Very busy place

We were in Sonora with family after a recent tragedy. We stayed at the Inn at Knowles Hill. We decided to eat at a local eatery. The food was very good, but since we are vegetarian, we felt it had a limited range of choices.

Not too many options here in the foothills, but the Diamondback is a reliable spot for a good glass of wine, good grass fed burger, always served with a smile.

They always have a list of specials on their chalk board, but the burgers are what most people (and I) enjoy the most. My wife likes the chicken salad and the portabello sandwich. They have local wines by the glass including one of our favorites (Newsome-Harlow Zin). We've been enjoying their food for about 10 years (before they moved to... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Sonora. The specials are always delicious. The staff is friendly. My only complaint is the level of noise is pretty high and makes it difficult for conversation at times.

Downtown charm. Better to Best Hamburger in Sonora. Proven good food. High end menu choices. Wine paring, and wine bar next door. Can be noisy. A longterm local favorite.

Went to Diamondback Grill for dinner. We ended up in the bar instead of the restaurant for dinner. The waitress/hostess greeted us cheerfully and we were seated immediately. DB has any extensive wine list from vineyards throughout the area. There were also craft beers and domestics. I had a habinjaro cheese burger that was delicious.

The title says it all. Some of the best burgers I have had in the Gold Country. The service was attentive and friendly. I will definitely be coming back on future trips to Sonora.

Hubby and I stopped in for lunch while visiting Sonora. Service was great and the food was delicious. Contrary to the earlier post, we liked the decor. I loved being able to see various patches of the original walls. We definitely will visit this great restaurant the next time we visit Sonora.
