We have been fans of this restaurant for many years. If you are looking for the typical Mexican fare that is served in most restaurants you are out of luck. But, if you are into an authentic special treat this is the place. Over the years we have tried many of the menu offerings and have never been disappointed. I... More

Stopped off for a few drinks and appetizers after moving our daughter to ASU. Loved the outdoor bar and patio area on the backside. Ordered the white sangria, margaritas, beer, and three different apps. The quesadilla was a bit different than what we expected - more like a spicy tamale but still good. Guacamole was delish and the bartender super... More

We have been fans of Los Sombreros for a long time. We used to drive to their South Scottsdale location for great food. We were very pleased when they opened a North Scottsdale location. The owner rotates the kitchen staff between locations so the food quality is consistent. The ingredients are top notch and fresh. The food is not the... More

We tried the north Scottsdale location this trip. The menu offers somewhat sophisticated Mexican fare (no burritos or fajitas here): potato and hibiscus tacos, sweet (with raisins) peccadillo tacos or quesadillas, salads with figs, jicama, crab, mango; entrees featuring chicken, snapper, salmon, trout, lamb, pork, or rib eye steak. The chile rellenos are excellent. The guacamole is fresh and chunky... More

The atmosphere was great! I sat out on the patio with my sweetie. The Martguerita was great and the Guacamole even better. The food took a little long to come, but it was worth the wait. I had the Chicken with Chipolte Spinach Sauce..and my sweetie had the Hibiscus Enchiladas. The server ws very personable! We'll be back!

The atmosphere and food here were great. They have a very nice patio where you can sit outside and enjoy the lovely Scottsdale weather without getting too much sun. The food was delicious - my mom had the potato tacos (yes, potato) and they were delicious - not a bad small meal for under $10. My husband and I had... More

We were excited about the prospect of an upscale Mexican restaurant in our area so gave it a try. Friday night at 6 pm and only one other table filled. Yet we waited for service and then a full 20 minutes for 2 sangrias. I ordered the chili rellenos, which were served in a soup bowl covered in what can... More

My husband and I went last night at 4:30pm for an early dinner since we had an appointment at 6pm in Cave Creek. We never thought that the service we be so slow we wouldn't get out of there until 6pm so we weren't able to make our appointment. Even though it was the day before Cinco de Mayo the... More

My wife and I went to Los Sombreros on Northsight in North Scottsdale for happy hour and we were the only two customers in the restaurant. Note----the restaurant must seat over 200 people including the patio--good news, we got our choice of tables. Our server was talking to other employees and pretty much ignored us so we had to wait...

Forget your Tex-Mex or New Mexican red, even the Mexican food modified to accommodate the gringos pallet. Los Sombreros produces innovative dishes featuring the true flavors of Old Mexico.
