Sonora Grill

Finally found a reason to go the Midtown Market to eat. I know a lot of you like other places there, I am underwhelmed by most of them . The Senora Grill reminds me of eating on the streets in La Paz except the Tacos are much bigger.. It's right by the Produce place. Now when I go to get produce I can have a snack

  1. Very enouraging. You don't like anything else at MidGloMa? Not even La Sirena Gorda? Or Los Ocampo (even though I think the standalone location across the street on Chicago is better)

      It's not that I don't like the other places I find them lacking La Sirena Gorda is one of the better ones.

    2. This place is great. Everything is made from scratch. The flavors are bold and tasty. I had Beef Chimichurri Pincho. Skewer of beef with chimichurri, coconut rice and smoky beans. And a tortilla. Perfect lunch size portion. The bean and rice are amazing. The beef was tender and flavorful. Really great.

        Just ate at Sonora Grill. Had 1 fish taco, 1 pork sandwich with fries and 1 salad with cheese squares. The taco was nice, interesting. The pork sandwich was amazing. The fries were very very good, the salad was very very good. It's the best food in Midtown by a long shot. Some of the best in the Twin Cities. The major impression this place left on me was of fresh high quality ingredients. The bun for the sandwich was delicious.

        I haven't tried the Pinchos or rice and beans yet .

          Went again this weekend.

          Had the Beef Chuck sandwich & the chicken pincho. Both were terrific.

        1. ate here a bit ago, just a fantastic place. I had the pork sandwich and tongue taco, both were great, fries are good too. my brother had the beef chuck roll and the special taco, a fried chicken taco...that was incredible.

          need to try the rice and beans.

          1. We went today, and found it to be very good. All of the tacos (tongue, chicken and shrimp tempura) were very good, but the tongue was the standout for me. The beans and rice that came with the beef chimichurri were interesting and actually packed a lot of flavor, though I wish the beef had a bit more flavor.

            Interested to try the sandwiches, but would certainly return for the tacos.
