About 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.

Sierra Bonita Grill Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Sierra Bonita several times, as it is close to our house. The food is so delicious. I especially like the buttermilk fried chicken entree and the jalapeno poppers for appetizer, although every entree that we have had has been great. I terrific place to take guests from out of town as it has a mexican flair, You really can't go wrong with this restaurant,
This is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Everything we have ever ordered is great. I am a huge fan of their Carne Asada though it has spoiled me for the dish. I am disappointed if I order it elsewhere. Nothing compares to theirs.
One downer now since they had expanded the seating in the bar.....the booths next to the bar get the high decibels from the happy drinker there.
Had soup, a selection of small plates, and dessert. Food is truly creative southwest - all excellent. Skip the coffee after; not worth it. Valet parking attendant went out of his way to be very helpful. We're not often in Phoenix for dinner but Sierra Bonita is definitely worth the stop. We'll be back.
We found Sierra Bonita about 6mo's ago, and have probably been there a dozen times since. We live out in Ahwatukee, so its about 25 miles, but WELL WORTH the drive.
I wish I could tell you my favorite, but everything I have tried, I have loved! I am a gluten free diner, and have never had to order 'just another salad', as I do most places I dine. They have a number of GF items on the menu, not marked, just prepared healthy and fresh. Double check with the server and they will let you know.
Recently I reserved one of the private dining rooms down stairs. If your party is 6 or more, they can be reserved- only 'extra' cost is your minimum tip is $100. But if you dine with a large group, it's usually that much anyhow.
Visiting from Chicago and wanted authentic southwest food for our last night. It was really, really good. Got the tamale for an app, carne asada and buttermilk chicken for entrees, and s'more in a mason jar for dessert. Everything was incredible about the food. Our waitress was very...aloof. We ordered beers which were never brought. We decided to just let it go, saved us $10 haha. Asked for no cheese on tamale, lots of cheese came. Asked for half portion of carne asada abd got the full portion. She was super friendly though. So we felt bad and didn't complain. Only other gripe was the water from the pitcher was warm! Would recommend solely based on food.
Food was above average, but needed salt. Portions were generous. Server was either too busy or aloof and we didn't see much of him, but he did bring what we needed when we could find him. It was loud, but we went on a Friday night and they were full. Live music and artwork was very nice. Thought it was a good place to bring parents since the crowd was older.
Sierra Bonita is an absolute gem combining top-quality Mexican cuisine with a comfortable, informal atmosphere. The Don Culio (!) margarita, featuring jalapeno peppers and cucumber, is deliciously different. Stacked enchaladas with carne adovada (pork) are, alone, worth the visit. The restaurant is perfectly located for lunch or dinner after a visit to nearby Taliesin, Scottsdale's only "must see" place.
I had the "Le-Hefe" which was EXCELLENT. The price was a bit steep but the portion was fabulous. I made 4 meals. I will definitely order this again despite the price... My husband had the pork tenderloin and he wasn't thrilled with it, so I shared mine. He loved it as much as I did. The guacamole was just as great as was the bread pudding had to finish the meal off.
Tuesday evening about 8PM. You could tell the manager or owner was certainly not there. While the food was great and spot on,the staff was young and lackadaisical, the suggested $40 wine was overpriced, and the service on the patio was poor. Our first glass of wine was poured and we were left pretty much to ourselves for the most part the rest of our meal. If I pay $100 for a meal I want to be catered to a bit more, even on a weekday evening. Management should tighten up the ship a bit.
I love Sierra Bonita. I am not a meat-eater, but their fish tacos or cheese enchiladas with green sauce (ask them to hold the meat) always hit the spot. If they'd add another dish or two without meat, I'd probably at there twice as often! I'm told by my meat-eating friends everything else is superb too. Also, keep your eyes open. You never know who will show up at Sierra Bonita. I got to say hello to Governor Rose Mofford on my last visit!
