Sonora Grill was the last restaurant we visited. We have eaten there before and have never been disappointed. The habañero salsa (you have to ask for it) it really good, but more importantly, the dinners were excellent.

Really great dinner!! My husband really appreciated the seperate vegetarian menu - this place is very accommodating to those with dietary restrictions. I think they also provide a special gluten free menu. I would go back again next time I'm in Utah!!

This is a must do on your check list of dining opportunities available in Ogden, Utah. We were a party of 10 and they gave us a nice secluded room. The bartender was awesome to watch as she made drinks and the staff was so friendly. It made for a great evening.

We celebrated Valentine's day at Sonora Grill and had a wonderful Tiapia Salad for dinner and the excellent dark chocolate mousse for dessert. We can't wait to go back!

Just ask your server about the pork carnitas. That us the "go-to" Neal fir the staff. Delicious pork with warm soft small tortillas. Yum. Sour cream and guac. Service was good and prices reasonable. Parking can be a challenge at night
