The trio of cevechi was excellent. Grilled mahi burrito was spectacular. Decent wine selection.

“Tasty and different!”

Ask for the habanero salsa it's hot and they will bring it if asked. Great burritos - really, really great!

“Shrimp Relleno, one of my favorite meals ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2011

Sonora Grill is a classy restaurant, it is absolutely beautiful inside and out, the menu selection is great and they even have a kid's menu. I've enjoyed this restaurant many times. The table side guacamole is fun and tasty, they give you huge home made tortilla chips with home made salsa. Both of which were excellent.

The quality of food is outstanding here. I've seen some reviews were people were upset that it wasn't Mexican food. I don't understand why they would be upset. The restaurant is called Sonora Grill. Not Jose's Mexican Food! Sonora Grill serves contemporary Southwestern dishes inspired by the Region of Sonora. The food is excellent!

Service has always been very good and accommodating. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Ogden. I highly recommend you visit!

“Best restaurant of the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2010

Out on business for a week, and tried this place. Not at all disappointed. I would concur that it is not really authentic Mexican, but it delivered authentically delicious fare, and the service was excellent. The owner/chef even stopped for a chat. It was also good to find a decent margarita in Ogden. I will be back next time I am in town.
