Very Nice Staff

There are a few Mexican Restaurants in Habersham County and they are all pretty much the same. All offer exceptional service, good Mexican food, and short wait time. If you like Mexican food then I'm sure you'll enjoy this restaurant or any of the others.

And that is what you feel when you come into El Sombrero, WELCOME! I am not sure what Authentic Mexican Cuisine means exactly, I'm sure it is somewhat Americanized, but it sure is very good. We have been here many times and are never disappointed. When last we visited they were having some electrical problems for cause of some storms... More

You can read my previous review below from back in June. As you can tell from my review. I loved it enough to come back often. Well, I must say, I still think it is the best, authentic Mexican I've had. However, every single time we have came since the first time, the service is less than average. We usually... More

It may not look like it when you pull in, but the atmosphere inside is cozy and warm, the staff is friendly, and the food is DELICIOUS! The salsa... More

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

Everything is nice about this place - food, service and decor. My only complaint is the men's restroom. They are totally neglectful of it and have been for years. Otherwise this place is tops.

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.
