“Impressive Mexican Food in Utah!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was a great find! It's in a newer area of Ogden - very modern and clean. The drinks were great (try a mango habenero margarita). I had the blackened habenero fish tacos and enjoyed the habenero salsa with chips the size of small tortillas. See a theme? I love spicy food and this place delivered. Nice atmosphere for business or pleasure. Definitely would recommend.

“Great Mexican food in Utah?”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I was staying across the street and decided to try the Sonoma Grill. I was not expecting too much since I did not recall Utah being known for Mexican food, however the entire experience was great. The pulled pork dish was excellent with pickled onions. The black beans were some of the best I've had. I have been to Dos Caminos in NYC many times and this dish was up to their standards. Great stuff!

“Terrific mex!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We went in for a marguerita but had planned to eat somewhere else. The drinks were great and the chips and salsa served with them so good we decided to stay and order dinner. Food was fresh, hot and delicious! Would definitely go back if traveling through Ogden again.

“Great Fresh Food! Great Service!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I love this restaurant, the complementary chips and salsa are some of the best. They give you two different types of salsa and both are great and fresh. The drinks were always filled. Both my wife and I had a burrito it was very good and the ingredients were hot and fresh. I would recommend eating here any time you are in the mood for great Mexican food.
