Sweet pork chimichanga

Food was great and margarita even better. Serve complimentary chips that are full tortilla which is different. Both salsas they offer are very good. Just stopped on my way through for business and will definitely stop again.

Was in Ogden for work for a few days and ate at Sonora multiple times. The food is very good and service was great. I really liked this restaurant. Didn't expect to find a Mexican restaurant here that I liked so much. Highly recommend if you are in Ogden and hungry for some good Mexican food.

I love this place! It's a little nicer than other Mexican restaurants in the area; they have a nice building with beautiful decor. The food is equally amazing. I especially love their giant, round chips that they bring out with the salsa. The food portions are fine for me but my young nephews say they would like a little bit... More

This place is hands down the best service and food. They serve authentic, very different food that is fantastic. Tell all friends and family to go for lunch or dinner.

Very accommodating with variation of menu. Savory taste with suggestions from server to enhance the flavor. Quick friendly service. Clean and good acoustics for table discussion. Bathrooms clean. I liked looking at the book "I Am Ogden" In waiting area. In great neighborhood with shops and entertainment.

We have lived all over the world and it is actually hard to find good Mexican. This is it! Great salsa's; the meat is fantastic. We had Carnitas and Carna Asada. YUM! This is now one of my favorite restaurants! FANTASTIC. The service is amazing as well. You will be in your happy place!

We went to Sonora Grill the night before vacation. The meal was, as always, very good, and they have Negra Modelo beer, which goes very well with Mexican food.

We have visited this unique restaurant several times. I'm ashamed to say I thought it was a chain restaurant and did not go there until they have been open several years. The food is all freshly made. It is entertaining to sit near the kitchen and was food prep. We go here about once every month or two.
