My wife and I went here on a Friday afternoon after the lunch hour rush. When we walked in we were immediately greeted by a friendly hostess and seated. Restaurant was clean, as was our table, etc. Our waiter appeared at our table within a minute to get our drink order and quickly returned with our drinks. Our food came... More

This was about out umpteenth visit because the Sonora never fails to exceed expectations. Very good drink selection and a menu to satisfy anyone, even vegan/veggie. Take home boxes are almost standard with portions this size, and the food is simply wonderful Service staff is prompt, very attentive, and friendly, too.

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant near the historic 25th Street in beautiful Ogden. The ambient was great and Miriam was sharp and provided excellent service. They offer chips which are whole tortillas that comes with both red and green salsa!! I would come back just for that! The vigen taco dish I ordered was delicious! This is a must... More

We don't live in Ogden, but were there to try the IFly and saw this restaurant across the street. So glad we did. My wife had the double combo luncheon of Chicken salad and Chicken Taco. I had the Cheese Enchiladas. Both of us were very pleased with our meal and would love to go back. Food is fresh, with... More

I've been coming here for over five years now and recently had a change in diet. I'm so happy to say that not only do they offer great Mexican food for everyone, but their vegetarian/vegan menu is incredible too. I've now tried the whole menu and it's all fantastic. The black bean and avocado quesadilla is my favorite though!

Menu has some unique items on it which separates it from the crowd. The chips and salsa are excellent. I had a seafood dish with shrimp, ancho chilies, wilted spinach and rice. Excellent! Darold from the serving staff was attentive and friendly. Kudos!

We tried this place based on TA recommendations. We were pleasantly surprised at how great this place was! There was a group of 5 of us, each ordered something different, and everyone was impressed. The table-side queso was amazing, some of the best we've had. The salsas were tasty and fresh. My brother said the chimichangas were the best he... More

I can't get enough of Sonora Grill. Excellent service and outstanding food. I think the best way to describe the food is authentic Mexican with a bit of a twist. I have not had a bad meal here. This place is top notch.

After eating here with my husband for the first time, every single Mexican restaurant is compared to the Sonora Grill. So far, nothing even comes close! The ambiance is beautiful, and the food is so fresh and so delicious! The green salsa is my favorite although the red salsa is amazing too! I could literally drink that stuff!
