From the chips and salsa at the table to the last bite of our entree's, the quality has never disappointed us. The lime salsa is great with the large freshly made chips.

My daughter had a surprise birthday party here with twenty two people, trust me it was a surprise. Many of the people had never been here before, I had many times. Everyone loved the dinner and the service was perfect. I would recommend the Sonara grill to anyone that likes great Mexican food with a menu with lots of variety.

I think Sonora Grill used to be excellent, but the last time I went none of us (4) thought our meal was that great. Maybe it was just an off night, but it was bad enough that I probably won't be giving them a second chance.

I would like to say Sonora Grill is the exact opposite of Taco Bell. The atmosphere is! I would say the same about the food but I don't want to insult Taco Bell. It starts with the five inch brittle taco discs, looking like they were made before folding them into home made Taco kits. Next dipping sauces. Stuff green... More

I've been here many times and I highly recommend. Love the green lime salsa. The fajitas are fabulous. The sopapillas are delicious. Great service. Just a great restaurant. It's very popular and worth the wait.

Went in for lunch on a Monday - started with the chips which were huge and fresh - salsa also tasted very good and fresh. Another table ordered the Guacamole which looked very good - I will order it next time we go in. Server was very pleasant and attentive.
