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.

The service was absolutely atrocious. No one cared that we were here. We would have given it one-star but the food was at least average.

I have dined at this restaurant/bar for 4-plus years and the service and food offering have been consistent. The offerings are americanized mexican cuisine, sports bar and dining setting. The venue is frequented by groups, couples, and mainly visiting tourists within walking distance to the 40th Street Park N Ride station and most Gateway Park hotels. The staff is friendly... More

Collectively we had a burrito, a salad, tacos and enchilada. All were very good. The service was speedy and the wait staff were efficient and friendly. I gave it a 4 because nothing was outstanding, but everything was truly good.

We were in the area to catch early morning flights out of DIA. We thought Mexican would be good and we headed for Urban Sombrero. Service was excellent and the food was quite good, standard Mexican fare. We were able to watch all of the basketball games too.

Marybeth, thank you so much for stopping by before your flight -- I'm glad you were able to watch the March Madness games, too! Here's hoping your bracket is still intact. Do stop by again if you get the chance! Cheers, Rob Greco, General Manager More

It looks like one out of a dozen neighborhood bars, but the food here is surpisingly good. Ofcourse it's not easy for them to compete with a bunch of chain restaurant around them, but anyone who walks in and tries one of their meals is sold. Friendly staff present on the day I visited and I expect I will be... More

I was glad there was one "no chain" choice near the hotel that we stayed at in Denver. So we walked over to Urban Sombrero and ate supper. We had great service and the food was very good. There was a spicy punch to most of the dishes, so be prepared for that! We met some friends there so I... More

I ate at Urban Sombrero on 3/02/15 and 3/03/15. Excellent! The 2nd best chili relleno I've had in 40 yrs. The mango/habanero salsa was the best ever...if it came in a bottle I'd drink it!

Rob G, Owner at Urban Sombrero, responded to this review

The second best in 40 years? That is amazing! I'm pretty pleased to hear that, but of course, we'll be sure to keep pushing till we get that number one spot. Come back again anytime for more of that mango salsa! Cheers, Rob Greco, General Manager More

Excellent margaritas. Lots of flavors and types of tequila. Good Tex Mex food. Chips and salsa were good. Very reasonably priced. Walking distance to our hotel.
