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

We have eaten here twice. The first time it was ok and was at a very busy evening time. The second time was a late lunch when they were not busy, The food and service were outstanding.

I love the atmosphere, the wait staff, and the food which always seems fresh and well made. the fish tacos are great. It is a bit noisy, so it is sometimes hard to talk. they do have a back room with a huge table if you are going with a crowd

We ordered the guacamole to go with the complimentary tortilla chips and two salsas. What a treat! We loved it! Our mains (chicken fajitas and carna asada burrito) were fantastic! There was just too much food on the plates for us to finish. Also the drinks are fab! Prices are absolutely ok. Would have come back if we had another... More

Sonora is clearly the best Mexican restaurant in Ogden. Don't risk a disappointing experience or potential Level 3 Digestive Event from anywhere else. Sonora is the answer to the Ogden Mexican food question.

We went to Sonora Grill Sunday July 17. There was only 1 other table occupied. The fajitas came on a plastic plate rather than a hot fajita skillet. The food was room temperature and beans and rice had to be ordered separately. they were cold also and beans tasted like the came from a can. the salsa was great

Everything on the menu is amazing! My boyfriend and I have come here a lot in the past year since we discovered it and have loved the food every time. At our most recent visit we were served by Chase. He explained that the owner went to Mexico for 3 months to learn how to cook the amazing food that... More

Went on a Sunday night at 5:30 PM - couldn't find many places open and we were glad to find this highly rated on Trip Advisor...5 star reviews were on point! Not crowded at this time but the food and service were excellent. Had 3 teens with me and the selection and portions were big! Drinks and appetizers were served... More

I do not typically ever eat at Mexican restaurants but I would definitely return here. I had the Carne Asada Burrito and they served it exactly as I ordered it - beef and cheese only - and there was plenty to eat and I am a hearty eater to say the least. Baylee was a real nice server and attentive.... More
