It's a difficult thing to say, the food wasn't bad, but nothing stood out. The store is clean and the staff friendly. Our order was taken promptly and our meals delivered quickly. A few things to note: the menu description may not match what you are served and the preparation may not be optimal. Our experience: I specifically ordered an... More

El Sombrero is close to the Side Street Deli. Their food is always excellent. The salsa is out of this world; I know you will enjoy it.
