We just had the Sonora burgers cooked to perfection with sweet potato fries! The burgers are HUGE and delicious-they offer delivery too.

U gotta try them! This is an informal place where you can even bring your wine with no corkage fee. Also try the quesadillas which are truly delicious.

We heard about this restaurant in the seafood ambience of Nuevo Vallarta from a Canadian couple. One has to select the cut of meat, tell the order taker how you want it cooked and choose one's sides. After you pay for the above you then order beverages. Servers will bring some chips and dip plus freshly cooked whole beans. It... More

Not fancy but great local steakhouse experience and superb value, steaks, sides, desserts and beers along with included starter around £10/12 a head depending on which steak you choose and how big you...

The selection of meats was very good. You can choose the amount you want to be cooked. But they weren't very helpful in the selections of the sides they offer. Didn't help we have only a little understanding of the language. Would have loved some wine with dinner but waiter never came back to table till too late. Would try... More

Returned here this year. Once again the steak was of the best quality accompanied by great side dishes and drinks. Well worth a visit by anyone looking for a night away from their hotel.

Everything about this place is great! The meat is some of the best. The side dishes are wonderful and the concept is perfect! If your looking for a good steak at a good price this is the perfect place in Nuevo Vallarta.

If you're a carnivore, you will love Sonora Al Sur. These are not pre-cut steaks. The butcher cuts your steak, to your size and you pay by the the pound (kilogram actually). You tell them how you like it grilled and pick your sides. They have every cut of steak imaginable. As for great value, we got four nice sized... More
