Let's just keep it 100, asking a Texan to critique Mexican food in Mississauaga is probably a bad idea. But I decided to have a little taste of home while visiting family for a couple of weeks a while back and let me tell you if this place is all Mississauaga has for Mexican I probably need to open something...

First off all I would have expected to be served and not have to go order my food and then have to go pick it up. I like being served. I think that Mexican food should have flavor and not taste bland. The food here tasted like no spices were added. My wife got beans with her rice and she... More

This is the best restaurant we have found near the Pearson Airport. It is a five minutes drive east and very well worth it. The atmosphere and food is legit - great people, great cooking and we'll be back for sure!!! !Viva Mexico!

We came to this area not looking for food, but for business, but ended up coming here for lunch. I have read reviews before of this place and decided to give it a try. It was empty when we arrived there. There were two wonderful ladies who greeted us. This place is not Fine dining, more of a casual laid... More

I have been going here for nine years and it is amazing. It's small and simple but honestly the best Mexican food in the gta.

I revisited El Sombrero last night for dinner. I've been to the Brunel location, but this time I went to Financial Drive. The gentleman helping was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome and at home. So service overall, superb. I had the chicken quesadilla with guacamole on the side and my boyfriend got 2 tacos (one beef the... More

The food is so good and prepared fresh in front of your eyes. You must try the wet burritos. P.S. make sure you're hungry as they are massive!

Very unassuming on the outside, but fabulous food on the inside! After traveling in Mexico, this is probably the most authentic and best-tasting food north of two borders.

El Sombrero does not skimp out on the size of their portions. The burritos are big and you can have almost anything you want in them without being charged extra (including guacamole). If you like your burritos large and quite moist then this is the place to go. The burritos you find at the chain restaurants such as Chipotle are... More
