A word from Sierra Bonita Grill
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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Started before we were seated. The hostess told us we would sit at our table but that we were going to have to move. Now why seat us only to move us? We are with my 90 year old mother in a wheel chair, really. So then the waiter came by and said we would be moving, ok, waiting and waiting to move…comes back to take a drink order, aren't we moving? Oh, no didn't they tell you you're staying here, but can everyone move in a bit so we can get by, again, what really? Ok, so it's Mothers Day, I have had these reservations for dinner, for two months. So why are we treated like cattle? Now for the food, we ordered, waited and waited, three tables were sat after us, got their food, ate and left before we were served. We will never go back there!"

  • "The food tasted great and our service was wonderful. We sat on the west end of the restaurant which has a patio feel, but was still indoors (great during Phoenix summers). Great place for lunch."

  • "Sierra Bonita is my favorite place to dine when you are seeking an amazing meal. The food is ALWAYS outstanding and never needs extra seasoning. I've tried many different menu items and every dish simply bursts with flavor. The staff is friendly & courteous. We are never disappointed in any aspect of our experience at Sierra Bonita. From appetizers, salads, main courses & desserts, they are all AMAZING! The manager and owner are usually on hand and often check in with diners to see how their dinner experience is going."

  • "Sierra Bonita is always a good choice for lunch. Their daily special, today's was fresh halibut, are reliable, affordable and tasty. Today, we also tried the soup special and were very pleased with the results. Sierra Bonita never fails to satisfy."

  • "We struggled to find this location as it it nestled between a strip mall and residential area, but once we found it, we were pleasantly treated. The food was excellent. My spouse had the Buttermilk Chicken and I had the Enchiladas Suizas. Both were enjoyed. They must have lit about 100 candles in the place which gave it a nice southwest ambiance. "

  • "Even though it is restaurant week, which can be hectic/crowded, we had a wonderful meal. Easy to make reservation, and a nice table was ready for us. We have dined here several times before, and as always, just great!"

  • "This was my first time here and everything was wonderful. The service was outstanding, from the moment we were greeted when we walked in, until we received our last thank you (of many) before walking out the door. The food was really good, from the first to the last dish and the drink selection was also great. I will be going back for another visit soon and will tell others about it. "

  • "We went for AZ Restaurant Week and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a nice variety of foods available. A couple of items that really stood out were the ceviche, the sweet potatoes that came with the buttermilk chicken and the caramel sauce on the buttermilk pie. They make the caramel sauce and it is rich and creamy. We will definitely return."

  • "went for dinner hoping to enjoy a game at the bar, thinking the patio area would have the setup. It is actually more of a fine dining southwestern food location. Food was fresh and prepared perfectly. Margaritas and all bar beverages are first rate. small tv's in the bar, and not enough seating in the bar are my only complaints."

  • "This is usually one of our favorites as we visit it whenever we are in town. However, this night was just average. The bacon shrimp app was very good, but the pork tenderloin with vanilla sauce was not as good as in the past. We thought it was kind of pricey compared to times in the past. 4 stars was based on other visits, and we will try again, it may have been an off night."

  • "Great food and wine. Wine list is a little short but has good options. Kids options are short too (no menu but has about 5 options and willing to make something work). Waitress was very good."

  • "Sierra Bonita has considerable charm, especially the back room with fireplace. The food is reliably good, not outstanding, Southwestern/Mexican style. Service is good and very friendly. This is a "homey" place and will remain on our list to visit regularly."

  • "Made a last-minute reservation and got there a few minutes late. The ta ble was ready and we were greeted with a smile. The food was excellent - well prepared, well presented, and very flavorful. There was a person in our group who needed gluten-free options and the server was very knowledgeable about that. They did make a mistake on the drink order,but other than that and a little too much attentoin from the server, it was fine. I'd definitely go back."

  • "This was our fourth visit to sierra Bonita in 2 months and it was just as wonderful as the first visit. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The pork osso bucco is fantastic. The green chili sauce alone is worth ordering this dish. The pasta dish was a combination of flavors that had me yumming it up. Definitely order Kenny's margaritas! Service is always friendly and efficient. We like the outdoor area and the bartenders wait on you. Not always a good thing but here we have been well cared for and entertained."

  • "We went in celebration of a special event. Two of the three diners had never eaten at Sierra Bonita and thoroughly enjoyed their experience. I was very pleased my recommendation turned out so well which I felt it would. With a varied menu,welcoming atmosphere and delicious cuisine how could they not enjoy. We each had a different entree and shared bites for a delicious experience. Green pork, wild fish and clams, and chocolate expresso glazed pork loin were our choices.Wow! Delicious. Ambience I.e. Light and noise level ideal for quiet conversation and coherent celebration. Thank you!"

  • "It is easy to drive by Sierra Bonita and not even see it, but you shouldn't. It has limited parking, but when it is crowded there is a valet to park. The food has a southwest feel and ranges from sandwiches and burgers on to Buttermilk Chicken and Carne Asada to steaks and seafood. I had fish tacos made with grouper. Save room for the buttermilk pie."

  • "I have been meaning to try this place, so when I saw a reservation time open for 10pm on a late dinner night, I booked it fight away. When we got there the manager informed us that the internet was wrong, the kitchen closed at ten, but if we could order promptly, he would hold the kitchen open for us. We had guacamole and fundito, both amazing. Their burgers and carne asada were some of the best we have ever had. We will be back and soon!"

  • "The restaurant seemed nice enough upon entering, but when our food came it tasted unseasoned and bland. The queso fundido appetizer was not served hot enough, so we had to tear the cheese apart with knives to get it onto our chips. The espresso rubbed pork tasted simply like pork cooked without spice or flavor. The service was also slow for a Monday night. I would not return, as it simply isn't worth the money. I was surprised by the good amount of reviews this restaurant has, as the food is really just simple and not at all unique."

  • "We were looking to have some authentic Southwestern food with Red and Green chili while we were in town for a conference. Sierra Bonita did not disappoint. I had the Pork Osso Buco which was wonderful. The pork was extremely tender and the flavors were excellent. My wife had the Carne Asada which she said was quite good. The area around the restaurant looked a little industrial so it concerned us a little walking in, but the restaurant itself had a warm rustic elegance to it. The staff were great. You need to come hungry, the portions are large, especially if coupled with appetizers. The prices were very reasonable."

  • "Kick back, the staff was great about recommending the specialties of the house, and they were wonderful. Patio is a bit closed in but not worth quibbling over. We plan to return again and again."
