Everything about this place was better than expected. The appetizers (green chili mac-n-cheese and queso fundido with chorizo) were excellent. They have a nice wine selection and the main courses were some of the best ever. The beef short ribs were absolutely excellent - full of flavor and tender as can be. The trout was just as good and worth... More

The food here is fantastic! The queso is the best in the city! All of the food that I've had is excellent! Service is always good and the wine list is amazing. This seems to be more of a local spot because every time I come here I don't get the tourist vibe. Shhh don't tell too many people

Tonight my company had a dinner at Sierra Bonita Grill. At the recommendation of Chelsea, our server, I had the pork tenderloin. It was simply wonderful. The rub they use is incredible (espresso and chocolate). The presentation was delightful. It was cooked perfectly at medium rare. The Serrano chile vanilla bean butter sauce was so succulent I set down my... More

I really like the atmosphere at this restaurant. It has a very warm and welcoming feel to it. We started off with happy hour in the bar. The only downside for me is that all the seats in the bar seem to be high top tables with bar stools. I'm short so for me to climb up on the bar... More

The beans the best I have had in a very long time. The waiter was not only great but outstanding. He needs to start a school to train other wait... More

I have eaten at Sierra Bonita a number of times and it never disappoints. The food is consistently good, not overly spicy just tasty. The Carne Asada is my favorite, but every thing I have had there is really good. The atmosphere is casual but polished. An overall reliable and pleasant dining experience.

I'd like to say "great" and score a "5" but it's just not there. We had a large group and the private rooms had nice atmosphere. Good service and good prices. In my opinion, the food was okay. Carne asada was fair. Overall a good restaurant and I appreciate the servers who handled our group.

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.
