My husband and I were looking for a decent margarita and meal. We found neither at this place. Our waitress was kind and somewhat attentive. We ordered the $11.99 signature margarita. It's was okay-ish. Then we tried the house. I sent it back. The food was just as bad. There is nothing remarkable or authentic about this restaurant.

This is a great little place in the heart of downtown Ogden. You can get a great dinner with awesome drinks. Try the bloody mary, it won't disappoint.

Sonora Grill is the "go to" place for us if we can't decide where to go for dinner. We always get a bowl of guacamole to start things off. If you like it spicy, they will add cerrano peppers. Their complimentary salsa's are nice and if you like it a bit spicier ask for the Habenarro salsa. I had their... More

Delicious authentic food from Mexico. We always enjoy the tableside made guacamole and my husband often chooses the Conchita Pibil which is a tasty moist pork dish from the Yucatán. The ceviche's are always a good choice and I love the salads, taquitos, fish tacos and rellenos. We often go for date night before a movie and eat at the... More

Chili Verde was very nice with a great flavor. Guacamole and refried beans had little flavor and needed help from the red salsa to be tasted. We were there before 5 pm and the employees were more interested in each other than us. Music was a little loud.

Steve B, General Manager at The Sonora Grill, responded to this review

Thank you Brent M, We are disappointed our guacamole did not impress we hope you will give it a chance again in the future, i recommend with the optional serrano peppers? We will be speaking to our staff about where their interest should be directed. Thank you for your assistance in helping our business grow and improve. -Steve More

This place has good new age meals. Their table side Guacamole is to die for along with the fresh fried tortillas they serve it with. Two people in our party had never had guacamole and loved it. The Fish Tacos, Ceviche and Burritos are very good.

We didn't have reservations, so had to wait 20 minutes for a table Christmas week. We are so glad we stayed. We enjoyed drinks at the bar, then shared some great chips with salsas, and ordered our meals. All four of us were very happy with our meals. Great wait staff. Nice decor.

It is a nice place with excellent ambiance. At first it appeared to be a tad pricey, but when the food came we could see that we got our money's worth. We split one fajita. SIX tortilla shells came and there was food enough on the plate to fill every one. We had to get a take-home box. Food and... More
