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.

The service and food were excellent; however, charging for a second bowl of chips and salsa was unacceptable!

Has a great birthday dinner. They were accommodating and made my daughter a kids meal not on the menu.

So yummy I took a business lunch group there two days later.

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.

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.
