Took the wife here for dinner last night. When we walked in we got no greeting and started to wait. Stood there for 8-9 minutes with no greeting. We watched 5 employees laughing and joking at the kitchen and 2 doing the same at the bar. I walked around the wall to look in the dining room and so only... More

I've been to Sanora Grill twice now, the first time was for restaurant week and although there was an expected long wait the food, service, and menu were pretty good. The second time was a completely different experience. It was a slow Sunday night and there was not many tables at all so we expected to be in and out... More

Been to the Sonora Grill many times. Have the best fish Tacos in the area. Fantastic atmosphere (if you want a quite spot for two or if you are with a group of friends). Nice bar to kill time if you have to wait for a table (which you will need to do for dinner on a weekend) or just... More

Centrally located by a movie theater, ice cream shops, and a bowling alley/family fun center. The southwest fare is well done with excellent flavor pairings. The carnitas nortenas go nicely with the sweetness of the coconut rice and the black beans. My husband loves the strawberry lemonade fresca.

Sonora Grill has great reviews but it didn't live up to the hype. They have a good selection of unique salsas but it went down hill from there. I got the steak taco which though had a fancy presentation wasn't that flavorful. I've had better food at Chili's. The rest of my family didn't complain about their food but didn't... More

In general I'm not a big fan of mexican restaurants but this must be the first one I really liked. Nice setting, great staff and good food!

Large, freshly-fried chips and tasty salsa in unlimited quantity. Get the agua fresca - a fruit drink that also comes in unlimited quantity. Many tasty selections on the menu. Sign up for their birthday club and get a free entree on your birthday. Portions are ample. We go here all the time.

Food and service is always great here. The chimichangas are delicious and you can't go wrong with their chicken quesadilla. Very reasonably priced lunch specials are well.

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
