How can you explain Sonora, it does not look like much, area i think older, building kind of a shack but food "WOW". My sons were so impressed that they went there Sun and Wed. Steaks are chosen by you and you choose how thick, what kind and how you want it cooked,. The steaks ordered were the VACIO, RIB,... More

What a great value! As other reviewers wrote, you choose the cut of beef and portion size that you want and we both had the vacio which was excellent and cooked perfectly. You get a choice of sides and as other reviews mentioned the large portions of the sides, we split the salad (okay only) and mashed potatoes (great!). The... More

I visited Sonora al Sur again after two years. I am writing to revise my original opinion upwards. I found the tortillas - both corn and flour - excellent as well as the sauces and sides. The meat is still not the best but substantially better than last time. The greeting staff was friendly. My only complaint on the service... More

The meat is fresh and great quality. You get to pick exactly what you want for the cut. It's grilled to your liking and served with a small selection of sides. Can't beat the price. Very casual atmosphere.

If you love steak, this is the place for you! When you enter the restaurant head to the back and the fun begins. This place is a butcher shop and you can pick the cut, as well as the size of steak you want. Once you tell the butcher how thick a cut of meat you want, they cook it... More

Love the vacio! The concept of picking out your meat and then them cooking it is great. Love the beans and tortillas and the sides. Love that you can bring your own wine!

We ate here because it had high ratings on google. We were happy that we did. It is a little confusing set-up but you first go back and choose your meat. Then you pay for your meal and find a table. They serve you drinks at the table and then bring the food. We all enjoyed our meals, even the... More
