Enjoyable Southwestern Food

Food was delicious, especially their coconut rice! Service was good and took the time to explain the entrees. Portions were generous, larger than what we needed. Took some away and it was good the next day, after 12 hours in the refrigerator.

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.

I had one of the house specials Carnitas Nortenas, the presentation was good but the port was on the dry side, like it had been under the heat lamp too long. I had high hopes with all the positive reviews, but I will try it again next week when I'm back. Everyone has an off night, I was told to... More

My cousin got married and thisis where we had girls lunch on the day before. Waitstaff were very attentive, keeping drinks full and even bringing some sour cream for grandma since she's not big on spices. I had the taquitos, one of the prettiest and tastiest things i had all week.

Drink menu was amazing and their food is amazing. The El Jefe margarita is by far my favorite. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. Try one of their ceviche appetizers

Stopped by for dinner on the way to SLC. Was seated right away, even at prime time on a Holiday Friday night. The chips were full tortillas and they had both red and green salsa. They were fantastic. I had the chicken fajitas and they were quite tasty. The restaurant was quite nice inside and the waitress was very friendly.... More

This is a highly reviewed Mexican restaurant and well worth it. It is NOT your typical run-of-the-mill Mexican food. It is fresh, unique and served with great service. The chips and salsa stands out. There is a red salsa and a green salsa that is to die for. I could not stop eating the green salsa. In the past, I... More
