The food here is flavorful and everything is made fresh. Their house salsas are delicious and I love their DIY taco plates. The portions are generous and the staff is awesome. The restaurant can get a bit noisy, but not too overwhelming. Also, service while good, can be slow because everything is prepared so fresh and to order. I am... More

Close to so many attractions in Ogden this restaurant is a great place to gather before or after an activity. Though be hesitant with bringing many children. The portions are large and the food has great flavor and Mexican authenticity.

This restaurant was just across the street from our hotel the Hilton Garden Inn so super convenient. We enjoyed our meal after a long day at various nature reserves. The Margaritas were really good and we also enjoyed the food here. The décor seemed a bit strange to us Brits but the service was very good, helpful and friendly.

With all my traveling, I have to say, Sonora Grill is still my favorite restaurant of all time! All the food is prepared fresh and although I am sad that stopped making the Chili Colorado, which was marinated chunks of beef, everything I have ever had there is absolutely delish!

The Sonora Grill in downtown Ogden never disappoints! It is lovely inside and out, and is conveniently close to local attractions. Everything I've eaten there is delicious, but I especially love the chimichangas. The homemade chips and salsa are amazing. We have always had great service, even for large groups; they are very accommodating. The owner seems to have lots... More

The Sonora Grill is across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn making for an excellent stop over between Boise and Denver. I had the Chile Rellenos and they were very good although the Poblanos were slightly undercooked (crunchy) for my taste. The refried beans and rice were way above average with no adverse after effects, if you catch my... More

Food was great. Certainly not a Tex-Mex nor a Mexico City or Acapulco/PV - more L.A. cuisine but it was good. Service was fair. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The reception/lobby was truly filthy - window sills, floor, bench, book cases, etc. This was at 5:30 on a week night and few patrons were in the restaurant. The... More

Lunch in this upscale restaurant was fun. It is downtown Ogden, which is really a vibrant setting. NIce atmosphere - our server was attentive. We had fish tacos and pulled pork burrito - portions are huge. The presentation of both dishes was unique. We enjoyed our experience. This is however, not a Mexican restaurant, but is a restaurant that has... More
