We love the Sonora grill and have never had a bad meal here. Our favorite dish would be the fajitas which are served sizzling hot and chock full of flavor. Our least favorite dish was the quesadilla because the last two times the meat was dry and over cooked. But who has perfect food and we still go back! The... More

If you like food that doesn't have much flavor then this is the place. I would say it's a great place for a big family with a bunch of kids to go have a meal. The service was fine, the restaurant decor was pretty good, the servings were huge and the location was great, but every one of us felt... More

They do their Chile Rellano very uniquely in that they take a whole Poblano Chile and stuff it full of Cheese, then deep fry it with batter coating. Very delicious. The Chicken Enchiladas were loaded with Chicken. Great mexican food, and i am from Southern Calfornia.

I travel for work around the country quite often, so more often than not I am flying solo at the bar. This is a great place to eat if you are in that situation, or at a table with the family. The chile verde was out of this world and I hope to visit to have it again. Fernando at... More

Came here with my family for dinner. Food was excellent and could taste the quality in the food. I got the chicken burrito l, guacamole and my wife got the chicken fajitas. Both got margaritas. The salsa options were also great. Only reason why I don't give them 5 stars is the service could of been better and the food... More

Our family of 10 had a nice group lunch with alcohol drinks. Good menu, room to visit, and good service. Newer modern restaurant right in the heart of the new business development with both inside and outside seating.

The atmosphere is great, the service good, the food leaves a lot to be desired. The fish tacos had more breading than fish.

Fantastic ambiance and food that is consistently delicious. The staff there, particularly the bar staff (Fernando and Miriam) are a big reason why we keep coming back. A great Northern Utah destination!

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and made a reservation based on the reviews of others. It's a nice place, very modern Mexican. There were 10 of us and they put us at a large round table in our own little room. that was nice because of the size of our party and we could actually hear each other.... More

Been here many times, love it every time. The service is good, but nothing special. In my opinion, what sets Sonora Grill apart from other mexican restaurants is the chips and salsa, as well as the atmosphere of the place. It's not a typical mexican restaurant, but it's definitely my favorite Mexican restaurant in town.

Thank Alex B
