Our family stopped here en route to Eden. The food was great! The price point is a little higher but the quality of food was very apparent. The guacamole was very fresh and the fish tacos were excellent. Our server was excellent as well.

I love this place. If anyone ever asks me where to eat in O-town, Sonora is always my 1st recommendation! Great bar, salsa and everything on the menu is stellar. Some of the best beans I have ever had. You won't be disappointed!

This is some of the best Mexican food I have had. Expect higher prices, but also expect higher quality food than your average Mexican place. The "allambres" (spelling?) are excellent. Soppapillas are delicious and I love the lime salsa. Absolutely delicious. I have been here many times. Service can vary by the waiter or waitress, but the food has been... More

We had heard some good reviews about Sonora Grill and were excited to go there. Since this would be our first time visiting this restaurant we were very excited. Upon entering we were greeting by the hostess and within five minutes we were seated. It was later in the afternoon so there were hardly any other customers at the time.... More

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
