About

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 24 people.

We went for our anniversary dinner as I had been wanting to try this restaurant for some time. The food was tasty for the most part but overpriced. My husband's soup was cold so he didn't have the best experience.

Stopped in for lunch as I needed a margarita after the early morning I have had. Tried the chicken bacon sandwich. YUM! Got my margarita. Then went home and crashed. Perfect!!!

We selected this restaurant for two reasons: 1) It was close to our rental and, 2) it had good reviews. Our three dinners were excellent and the service was exceptional. Savanna, our server, was terrific. We recommend that you ask for her. We will definitely be back!

Great casual restaurant serving unique twists on Southwestern cuisine. The Osso Bucco (yes I did say “Southwest Cuisine”) was outstanding as well as the “stacked” enchiladas. Oh, and their Margarita, made with all fresh ingredients is awesome.

They said that they did not have a reservation in my name. We asked 3 different times and they said that they did not have a reservation for Moczynski when we arrived — at 6:45

Poor service, lousy margaritas, charged my credit card $9 for a $27 meal. When I brought it to the attention of the waitress she took it to the cashier to correct, but they did not give me a credit for the $9 initially charged. I'm calling and talking with the manager to get it rectified.

Do not visit on a Saturday for dinner. They do not have enough staff to manage a full restaurant. The kitchen did also not follow the directions on our orders. Ie No pickles and no beans. Normally a great place on weekdays.

Took my friend Fred there for lunch. Our waitress was a stitch. We had so much fun interacting with her. We both had the street tacos and loved every bite as usual. At the end we got some guacamole and chips to finish stead of starting the meal. Love our little neighborhood gem.

Our server, Stacie, was outstanding. I ordered the prime rib and wanted an "end cut" . Stacie went out of his way to get it. My wife ordered the filet mignon and it was equally delicious. We have not visited Sierra Bonita in several years and will definitely visit more often.

Decided to try Sierra Bonita and it was just okay. Pasta Santa Cruz has nice flavor, Stacked enchiladas were also flavorful. The house burger was just okay and mini corn quesadillas had mixed reviews at our table. The fresh lime margarita is good not the added orange liquor makes it a little too sweet. Hopper’s Poppers were everyone’s favorite of this dinner. Service wasn’t great and table placement made it hard for servers to move around. The women’s restroom had an awful odor which was right across from the kitchen... almost like something was backed up.

Excellent food, service and ambiance. I had not heard of this place, and merely searched via Google as a half way point for me and a colleague to meet. I will most definitely go back again for their unique spin to SW cuisine.

I MAY recommend this place, the food was good, not outstanding. The ambience was decent. The service was not good, and this is the second time in a row where we had poor service. I believe that it was actually the same waitress. If we go back again and the same waitress approaches, I would definitely ask to be seated in an area with a different waitress.

We eat at Sierra Bonita often. We love everything about the restaurant. The menu is diverse and have not had a dish which wasn't perfect. Appetizers are great as well. Service is on par with most much more expensive establishments. Most visits are impulsive and OpenTable is not utilized.
