Description: The Sierra Bonita Grill is named after the historic Sierra Bonita Ranch in South Eastern Arizona. Founded by Henry Hooker in 1872, the Sierra Bonita Ranch was known for it’s hospitality and innovative ranching methods. We would like to celebrate the spirit represented by Mr. Hooker and other pioneer ranches throughout Arizona with our restaurant and hope to continue the tradition of great food and hospitality. Our menu reflects the hearty cooking style of Southern Arizona ranches, many of which were started by Spanish and Mexican families. We will continue to explore the ongoing Mexican and Latin influences on this area’s culture and food. Patio seating available to accommodate 30 people.

“Tex Mex Charmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Great Food and Great Wine/Cellar

Our first night in Phoenix and I was wanting some Tex Mex food. We found this restaurant through Alaska Airline's Restaurant Guide and thoroughly loved the place. The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful in choosing our food selection and because of their extensive wine collection, we found a great wine to accompany our meal. I ordered the Carne Asada which was very flavorful and my husband ordered the Fish Tacos which he enjoyed as well. For larger groups, they have a nice room in their wine cellar. Very clean and great service.

“Neighborhood Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is a truly comfortable restaurant. I love sitting out on the covered patio but I also love sitting inside! My favorite is the carne asada..either the dinner or the tacos depending on my hunger level. The staff is friendly and attentive.

“Great food, not good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

The menu is very different and pulls you in. My husband and I relly enjoyed the food. The server never really checked on us and never brought us anything we needed. We would go back....but just for the food. Maybe sit at the bar next time.

“Just outstanding. Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Oh, man, where do I start? The drinks? The food? The appetizers? OK, I'll start with the appetizers because that's all we had. We ate so many we didn't have room for dinner. Wish we had had one more day in Phoenix and would have gone back to really eat!! The concierge at the Wigwam resort recommended this to us. Thank you Holly!!!
