Menu has some unique items on it which separates it from the crowd. The chips and salsa are excellent. I had a seafood dish with shrimp, ancho chilies, wilted spinach and rice. Excellent! Darold from the serving staff was attentive and friendly. Kudos!

I can't get enough of Sonora Grill. Excellent service and outstanding food. I think the best way to describe the food is authentic Mexican with a bit of a twist. I have not had a bad meal here. This place is top notch.
