Authentic Mexican

It was a girls' weekend getaway in Sonoma staying at the Best Western Dry Creek hotel. Our first night we walked into town and stumbled upon El Sombero.

Great enchiladas, tacos, and salsas. The service is quick and friendly and the food is cheap. Great for a quick lunch or a late night snack.

Been going here since 1992...my go to comfort food. Very unpretentious staff offer authentic Mexican food. Just off the Plaza. One of Healdsburg's hold outs against the chic overlords of this wine country classic.

We're locals , and this is probably my husband's favorite restaurant , due to their fresh and generous fish tacos. I usually order a quesadilla - and take half of it home ! Great value for the price - and around dinnertime, it feels like a side=trip to Mexico!

Authentic, delicious, and reasonably priced Mexican food. I'm always happy with what I get, and the staff is friendly. If I'm in Healdsburg, this is my favorite place to go for Mexican food.

we walked in and fell in love, where the locals come after church in their Sunday best a la familia! The octopus cocktail was awesome, though a little pricey, it's definitely worth it, very good fresh and quality food, quick service and clean.

Little whole in the wall. Great food, everything was fresh and delicious. I recommend the fish tacos. Great little place and not expensive. Best value in town for a lunch.

This small Mexican taqueria is just off the square. It is not large, but clean with friendly staff. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. We had the chicken enchilada plates which were excellent. And for Healdsburg prices the cost was surprisingly modest. Plenty of food and boxes provided for those wishing to take... More

Stopped for a quick lunch. Excellent fish taco and taco salad. Fast service. Was doing the area wineries, and it was nice to have a Petaluma Lagunitas IPA for a change of pace.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a shop owner near Healdsburg's historic plaza. It was a good recommendation, and we each had a shrimp taco & a fish taco. The shrimp taco was full of tasty, large shrimp, and the fish taco was just about a meal in itself. Service was good, the food was good, and the price... More
