Read the reviews, decided to try it while in town. Should have stayed home and had a patio TV dinner. The food had very little texmex or even old Mexico flavor. The cheese sauce tasted like it was made with velveeta!Yes, the portions were large but who cares if the food isn't good.

I like El Somberito because it is the closest restaurant to my house. They have the best Texas fajitas you will find(besides Lorena's in East Peoria which is owned by the same lady). The portions are always very generous and they are super fast in waiting on you and getting your food to you.

We have yet to have a bad meal here. The food is fresh, and the portions are generous. Somberito is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Peoria area!

Always enjoy eating outside on the patio on a nice evening. All their combo plates are good, especially the ones with enchiladas. Try their Grilled Chicken Salad, too.
