I agree with others that the food can be "hit or miss". Last night was a miss. The restaurant was nearly empty at 6:45pm and we were seated way in the back of the restaurant ( three adult diners). They charge $.95 for a small portion of habanero sauce and my friend's carnitas was severed with 2 small flour tortillas.... More

Sonora Grill is amazing! They start you off with about 8 inch round tortilla chips that you break and dip in their 2 kinds of salsa, a smoky red salsa and a tomatillo and lime green salsa. My favorite is the green. The best item on the menu is Carnitas Nortenas......amazing slow roasted and pulled pork that is then fried... More

My hotel is across the street and they recommended. Lunch was fantastic I may return for dinner. Serving full size taco chips with my salsa forced me to not eat a whole basket. I ordered enchiladas rice and beans. It was great and I am stuffed.

We were just getting in to Salt Lake City for our first night of two. I quickly looked up a dinner restaurants on yelp and found Sonora Grill and thought that it would be a great choice. Once my family and I walked in, I noticed the amazing furniture, decorations, and paintings. It was amazing beautiful! The waiter service was... More

My husband and I came here in July, with our granddaughter. We all ordered something different, and nobody's food was very good. I've noticed before that sometimes this restaurant is good and sometimes it is not so good. I will say they have good salsa, and they have good guacamole, but the food is allmost terrible. What it does have... More

So many people told me that they adored Sonora Grill, so I was very excited to go. The service was fabulous and everyone was very friendly. I was uninspired when it came to my meal. Very pricey for a step up from fast food. I'm okay to go again, but I won't purposefully seek it out as a dining option.

Super wonderful food, excellent service staff. The food is not the same as what you would find at the local fast food place. Anyone visiting Sonora Grill will not be disappointed with the choices of food, and the touch of real Mexican cuisine.

We've been going to Sonora for a few years now. It's one of the few places in Ogden that has a vegan menu (Ask for it when you arrive) and is open on Sunday. The vegan options are good but, it would be nice if they changed it up once in a while. My personal favorite is the bean and... More

The Sonora Grill is located in the heart of downtown Ogden, next to the megaplex movie theaters. The atmosphere and building reflect a sense of sophistication. The food offered was hearty for the price, and the free salsa and chips are amazing. Would definitely recommend to all who visit Ogden
