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.

If you are looking for sports they have a multitude of TVs set to a variety of channels, including whatever world futbol matches are on. Great Taco Salad and great Rellenos. Family owned and very accommodating on special requests.

Went there on a whim because it was close to our hotel. They had a great margarita list. I recommend the Habanero Lime margarita. It was delicious! The salsa is fresh and spicy, and the guacamole is also freshly-made and tasty. Shrimp fajitas were perfect!

Stopped here on recommendation of my Facebook page. Great food! Chips are homemade, salsa has lots of zip. Guacamole was also excellent. My friend had chicken fajitas and I had nachos. Both were excellent! The downside: the serving staff is a little too "hooterish." Outside dining allowed smoking which we didn't like. Great meal, I'd return!

My husband and I are here the night before a flight out of Denver! He had steak enchiladas and loved them. I had the carne asada and it was good as well!!!

I ate lunch here today with some coworkers. The meals were average, not bad or anything wrong, about par for a Mexican restaurant. Being located near several hotels, if you are in need of a sports fix, this is a place to visit as I believe I saw 15 TV screens placed all around the restaurant.

We took a risk and it payed off. The restaurant was close to our hotel. We enjoyed our meals. The kid's burrito was huge. The food was a little spicier than I like but I am a wuss!

Server didn't have a clue about the food and wouldn't ask the kitchen about the contents. The food tasted like it came from a package. I won't be back

Sorry to hear that. Our food is freshly prepared, and our servers are usually well instructed about the food. This seems to be an anomaly, but I will look into it nonetheless. Take care, Rob Greco, General Manager More

the homemade chips and salsa were fabulous, the happy hour margaritas were better than most places at regular prices, and the food was very reasonable and delicious

I stopped in here for lunch on a business trip. The food was really excellent and they seemed to have a fair selection of draft beer (although I did not partake since I was working). The wait staff could have been nicer, but other than this I would go back again without hesitation.
