I strongly recommend this bar-cum-restaurant, right across the main street from the Sonora Inn, as the place to eat if you want a meal in Sonora. The menu includes a wide range of dishes, including pizza, roast chicken, macaroni and cheese, steak, and meal-size salads; a variety of reasonably priced wines and beers are also available, as are soups and...

The menu is varied, hamburger to ahi tacos. Full bar. Decor is fun. After dinner crowd pretty young.

We had one night in Sonora and picked emberz as it looked the busiest and most inviting. We had a fabulous burger, tasted homemade rather than a off the shelf patty, and the sweet potato fries were very good too. My better half had the chicken and commented that it was the best food in six days in the states... More

We tried to eat here on Friday night but it's not clear where or if there is a hostess and no one greeted us. We stood there while a man talked to a man who worked at the restaurant, seemingly the host, but he didn't even acknowledge us and walked away. No one at the bar acknowledged us either and... More

If you stop by here you have to try the french onion soup.The creamy chicken pizza is also excellent. They have a brick oven on site so if you really wanted to you could watch as they make and bake your pizza. The place is right downtown next to the stop light very easy to find. ENJOY

I am a longtime patron of Emberz and always love the food and service. Last Friday I had the Beef Rib special and it was hands down the best meal I have ever had at Embez. The tenderness, juiciness and portion size was outstanding!. I made 3 meals out of my leftovers. If you stop by, you have to have... More

Loved the fries and pizza we got. Also the steak sandwich which was a special was excellent as well. They had live music as well, so I was glad we sat in the back

Great sandwiches and salads. Clean, bright atmosphere and friendly service. I have only eaten in front room and I've had take out. The chairs are a little uncomfortable and tables small.

Thank Sugan56
