On the plus side: A VERY inexpensive steak dinner promptly served with large sides by enthusiastic wait staff. No corkage fee. Clean. Close to Paradise Village. For those who like a range of salsas from medium to absolutely fiery it offers 4 interesting choices to spread on the tostados. On the minus side: Great variability in the degree to which... More

I went to Sonora Al Sur with 8 other people. While waiting for several members of our party to arrive, we ordered drinks. When we were all present we went to the butcher counter which is in the back and picked out our steaks. We ordered vacie steaks, filet steaks and a T bone steak. We then went to the... More

Fun place to go with a good selection of meats. You choose the size you wan, they grill it for you and deliver it to your table along with your selected side dishes. Reasonably priced.

It was ok I guess. The service was fair. It is a bit weird when it comes to service. Prices are ok to high. Probably will not go back.

This is a great local restaurant. You may be the only non-local in the place. Value is incredible - steak dinner for 4 under $50..

I am loathe to give 3 star reviews (this may be my third) but this place disappointed and many levels. First off, you have to look at a TV monitor (like Mcdonalds) to see what they have to offer. Then you walk up to the butcher to place and pick-up your meat order. You then carry your freshly carved choice... More

Been to this place several times. Go to the butcher shop in back and pick your steak and thickness of cut. Take it to the cashier and order your salad and baked potato or whatever else you like. They only take cash. The food is excellent and the service is good. All that and it is reasonable. The restaurant that... More

We had been told about Sonora Al Sur by a few people so went to check it out. So glad we did. When you arrive you go inside to order your meat and sides. The prices are per kg and the sides are enough to feed 2 people, so be careful not to over order. They cut your streak to... More
