The Urban Sombrero in Denver serves more than great Mexican food, we're also a passionate Sports Bar, where residents from Denver and beyond have come to cheer on their favorite team, or to drown out the sorrows of their losses. Our menu includes a wide variety of new and traditional Mexican fare, including Burritos, Chimichangas, Carnitas and more. Our burger selection features 1/2 lb grass fed beef, paired with high quality ingredients. You really can't go wrong, a solid selection of Mexican food, flowing beer and Margaritas, and large TV's, nowhere else really compares.

Good food, good price.

Great place for lunch or dinner, generous portions, good service. Much better than a lot of the other chain restaurants available in the vicinity.

The only thing that shines here is their salsa. Homemade. Chips are overcooked. Enchos are lame same sauce on everything. Disappointing. Lots of afterwork contractors here, so if you are female, I would probably avoid this place. Food is mediocre at best and the margs are made with bottle mix. Okay if you are tired or in a hurry, otherwise... More

I really appreciate you taking the time to write a review and check us out, but I'm sorry that not everything was to your liking. Our enchiladas are one of our most popular dishes and our margaritas are made with fresh juices, so I'm especially saddened you weren't impressed by them.

Went for a quick lunch after checking out of our hotel, and before going to the airport. It was a nice place with good fajitas. Good chips and salsa too. The service was good too. Walking distance from the nearby airport hotels.

I was staying at the TownPlace and the front desk agent at the time recommend me going over to eat and something to drink. After arrived at the hotel around 11pm, I thought most of the restaurants would be closed. The price was reasonable and Jonathan was excellent bartender. Great service

It's pretty difficult to ruin a Taco Salad, a Burrito and an Enchilada plate, but Urban Sombrero succeeded in serving the WORST Mexican food we've ever had!!! Don't know how this place stays in business! Waitress could have cared less about waiting on us. Someone from the kitchen brought out the food. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY EATING AT URBAN SOMBRERO!
