Mexican food with a twist.

Four of us stopped in on a Friday night. We ordered 2 apps and 4 different main entrees. Everything was excellent! Many items to choose on the menu with a lot of them having different ingredients than what is normally expected. Service was a little slow. The waiter said that they weren't... read more

The food was actually good. Average entree 13.00. However I was served the smallest glass of wine that I had ever seen at a restaurant, it was two sips. I mentioned ed it to our Waiter and he was very polite and apologetic. He had them pour several more ounces and said it was an error but I did the... More

Service at this restaurant is above average for this area, but the food is not really authentic Mexican. Food is good, not great, but better than most of the Mexican restaurants around here.

Because we live so close to Sombra, we have given it several attempts to improve. It just doesn't. I think it may even be worse. Poor ingredients make for poor food. How can anyone, (except a child) mess up rice? Chips are bad, cheese dip is bad, meat is bad, veggies are bad.... How can a Mexican restaurant not know... More

The food is good and the service is OK. I like the decoration here. I just think there are better Mexican restaurants in Jackson area.

The guacamole was served with two large pieces of up ripe avocado, the beef taco meat was gristly. On the other hand, my fajitas were very good. The pulled chicken sandwich was also good. Service was not outstanding.

Nice environment. Menu slightly over priced but it does feel more like a dining experience than all the other Mexican venues in town.

When restaurant first opened is was excellent. It went down fast after a year but is a little better now. Ribs (yes at a Mexican restaurant) are the best thing on the menu. The rest is just average. Menu is limited and never changes.

Finally a place that resembles Tex-mex in the littlest bit! Being raised in Texas I love my share of mexican food, however it is hard to come by tex-mex anywhere other than Texas! Sombra is delicious and fun. Their margaritas are the best in Jackson and it is in a good location. We've had the fajitas and enchiladas and both... More

The best Mexican food I've ever eaten in MS! I can only complain about other restaurants from now on.
