“Best Carnitas experience I've had!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Starting out with fresh tortillas and rojo and verde salsas, I knew this was a standout place demanding the ultimate test I give new Mexican restaurants. And this time, the crowning taste was discovered that outranks all previous testing! Sonoma Grill serves the best Carnitas yet to land on my tongue.

The boys and I really like Sonora Grill! The food is great but a little pricey! I would definitely recommend the place to friends and family

“Mexican Food with a Twist”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Very good food. Traditional menu but uniquely prepared. The guacamole was delicious. The chicken fajitas were tasty. Definitely worth trying.

Thank you for your review. It was very accurate to what we are trying to accomplish here at the Sonora Grill. We have a lot of very traditional mexican dished, with a contemporary and modern twist. Stop in again next time you are back in Ogden, I will buy you a drink.

“Good variety.”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Good Mexican food in a pleasant setting. Nothing to dislike. Hard to order a margarita when they can only use 1.5 oz, but that's true at any restaurant in Utah.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

We chose this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and MARGARITAS after a long day of travel. We found everything to be great, from the service, to the food, and the aforementioned beverages. I read reviews saying that the portions were small. We both had more than we could eat, especially since we got the wonderful guacamole as a starter. Don't know if we'll ever be back in Ogden, but if we are Sonora would be at the top of our dining choices!
