The Sonora Grill is our favorite southwest fusion restaurant! The food is excellent and so is the service! My favorite dish is the Cochonita Pibil. I love the coconut rice, as well. I have never been disappointed, when we go. I would highly recommend it.

Wait staff misunderstood my order apparently, as I was brought a dinner which wasn't what I asked for. When it arrived, it was barely warm. Overall, very disappointed.

My new favorite restaurant! So yummy! I had the pibli and it was amazing! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It's slow braised pork ( for 24 hours!!) with tons of delicious flavors in it, including citrus and cinnamon. I know that sounds different, but it was so good!

My husband and I both had fish tacos. The fish was like cardboard and had most definitely been fried more than once, we could barely cut it! My husbands beer was flat. However my strawberry margarita was lovely. We wouldn't go again based on this experience.

Nothing better after a day of skiing than tasty carbos of the Mexican variety washed down with a margarita or beers from a big list?? If that's for you then this is the place! Lively, fun atmosphere, energetic waitstaff, great menu and food. Great for all ages. Recommended by locales

I didn't know what to expect. I didn't want the usual American version of Mexican food. My girlfriend is Mexican American. We're in our sixties. She was very impressed with the menu. Said it was to her liking. It was actually hot enough for us. We both like hobenero and they actually used them in our dishes on request!!! It was excellent.
