I was looking forward to dining here. Great reviews and directly across from hotel. WOw, I can't understand the ratings, except they provide large portions, so, if that's your thing, you might like it. Our chili rellenos were majorly fried and quite disgusting. Most things, including the tableside guacamole were bland. And the margaritas,,,,,haha, I'm not sure there was any... More

Excellent Blackened Tacos were Gluten Free. Margaritas very tasty. Huge corn tortillas chips, and a fair price. Waitress told me if I didn't like my drink or my dinner choice that would change at no charge! It's their policy. Confident? Yes, because they've got the goods!

I have never been disappointed when going here. My last visit I noticed that they took the arroz con pollo off the menu, When I asked about it, they were still happy to make it for me. It is one of my favorites items along with the chili verde.

Thank you Prodepot for taking the time to leave us a great review. We have some servers on our staff that have the Arroz Con Pollo every day. It is most definitely a favorite around here and even though it is a ghost item it wont be going anywhere any time soon. Thanks again Prodepot for your support, -Steve More

Amazing food and service! Many options on the menu, but not so many that you have to thumb through fifty pages before you find what you're wanting to eat. Fun and energetic atmosphere, but still able to carry on conversations. Had a great time!

Love this place. The food is fantastic and a nice welcoming atmosphere to boot. The chips and salsa are really good, and the chimichangas are awesome.

My husband and I were looking for a decent margarita and meal. We found neither at this place. Our waitress was kind and somewhat attentive. We ordered the $11.99 signature margarita. It's was okay-ish. Then we tried the house. I sent it back. The food was just as bad. There is nothing remarkable or authentic about this restaurant.

This is a great little place in the heart of downtown Ogden. You can get a great dinner with awesome drinks. Try the bloody mary, it won't disappoint.

Sonora Grill is the "go to" place for us if we can't decide where to go for dinner. We always get a bowl of guacamole to start things off. If you like it spicy, they will add cerrano peppers. Their complimentary salsa's are nice and if you like it a bit spicier ask for the Habenarro salsa. I had their... More

Delicious authentic food from Mexico. We always enjoy the tableside made guacamole and my husband often chooses the Conchita Pibil which is a tasty moist pork dish from the Yucatán. The ceviche's are always a good choice and I love the salads, taquitos, fish tacos and rellenos. We often go for date night before a movie and eat at the... More
