What a fantastic break for the repetitive nature of staying at a resort. IMO if you're going out for dinner, this is a place to do it for sure!

A local steakhouse, so don't expect prime ribs and fancy decor. That said - the service was solid, it was air conditioned (a big plus for a local place), and it's EXCELLENT value for the price. You can bring your own wine and there's no fee for corkage, they'll pack up your leftovers (and there will be leftovers!), and call... More

We were told this was a great place for steaks...chose your own meat , etc. We were also told it was cheap. Well it is cheap...but the steaks were not so good. I did have a wonderful salad and our friend got the mushrooms and they were wonderful. You can take in your own bottle of wine ( which you... More

Maybe this was just a not so great evening... We went with a group to give the steakhouse a try.. Its a different concept... All beef with your choice of sides. The steaks came out.. I think half of then were sent back because they were raw. After they were brought back, they were fine. Kind of awkward. The atmosphere... More

How can you explain Sonora, it does not look like much, area i think older, building kind of a shack but food "WOW". My sons were so impressed that they went there Sun and Wed. Steaks are chosen by you and you choose how thick, what kind and how you want it cooked,. The steaks ordered were the VACIO, RIB,... More

What a great value! As other reviewers wrote, you choose the cut of beef and portion size that you want and we both had the vacio which was excellent and cooked perfectly. You get a choice of sides and as other reviews mentioned the large portions of the sides, we split the salad (okay only) and mashed potatoes (great!). The... More

I visited Sonora al Sur again after two years. I am writing to revise my original opinion upwards. I found the tortillas - both corn and flour - excellent as well as the sauces and sides. The meat is still not the best but substantially better than last time. The greeting staff was friendly. My only complaint on the service... More

The meat is fresh and great quality. You get to pick exactly what you want for the cut. It's grilled to your liking and served with a small selection of sides. Can't beat the price. Very casual atmosphere.
