Found SB on google while driving south from Sedona. Great reviews were accurate. Great room decor and good friendly vibe. Wait staff are superb all around. Huge success in Mexican influenced SW cuisine.

Tonight my company had a dinner at Sierra Bonita Grill. At the recommendation of Chelsea, our server, I had the pork tenderloin. It was simply wonderful. The rub they use is incredible (espresso and chocolate). The presentation was delightful. It was cooked perfectly at medium rare. The Serrano chile vanilla bean butter sauce was so succulent I set down my... More

I really like the atmosphere at this restaurant. It has a very warm and welcoming feel to it. We started off with happy hour in the bar. The only downside for me is that all the seats in the bar seem to be high top tables with bar stools. I'm short so for me to climb up on the bar... More

I had the Green chili Smoked pork Roast. Above the line of outstanding. I normally do not eat or like most rice but this was perfect and exactly awesome flavor. The beans the best I have had in a very long time. The waiter was not only great but outstanding. He needs to start a school to train other wait... More

I have eaten at Sierra Bonita a number of times and it never disappoints. The food is consistently good, not overly spicy just tasty. The Carne Asada is my favorite, but every thing I have had there is really good. The atmosphere is casual but polished. An overall reliable and pleasant dining experience.

I'd like to say "great" and score a "5" but it's just not there. We had a large group and the private rooms had nice atmosphere. Good service and good prices. In my opinion, the food was okay. Carne asada was fair. Overall a good restaurant and I appreciate the servers who handled our group.

My husband and I were here on our first night in Phoenix. After seeing good reviews here and being nearby to our hotel after flying all day, it was a good choice. We noticed all business signs tend to be low to the ground here, and we missed the turn once but it wasn't super hard to find. Even though... More

One of the first things you notice when you step into SB is the great ambiance. Dining in great, want to eat at the Bar better and an enclosed patio with a fire place for those special occasions. Southwest Dining in Central Phoenix. My #1 go to if you are dining at SB is the South West Benedict. I am... More

It is 'sort of' New Mexican but very different, unique and flavorful. Great use of spices. Each dish was different from Roasted Salad to mini quesidillias. Entrees like stacked enciladas to chili pork were unusual and extremely tasty. Go try this one!

The Sierra Bonita Grill is named after the historic Sierra Bonita Ranch in South Eastern Arizona. Founded by Henry Hooker in 1872, the Sierra Bonita Ranch was known for it’s hospitality and innovative ranching methods. We would like to celebrate the spirit represented by Mr. Hooker and other pioneer ranches throughout Arizona with our restaurant and hope to continue the tradition of great food and hospitality. Our menu reflects the hearty cooking style of Southern Arizona ranches, many of which were started by Spanish and Mexican families. We will continue to explore the ongoing Mexican and Latin influences on this area’s culture and food. Patio seating available to accommodate 30 people.
