"Family-owned?" Not anymore?

We have been coming to Red Sombrero for years, and have always loved the friendly service and our favorite - the veggie burrito bursting with roasted sweet potatoes, squash, beans, etc. Our child (5) always adores the soft taco with chicken.

Hello Lisa. We would like to let you know that although the ownership has changed, the former owners still work in the kitchen and prepare the food exactly as they had. We did not change any of the ingredients or Red Sombrero menu items. We have only added seven more types of burritos and fish tacos. We also will be... More

We learned a month or so ago that Red Sombrero has a new owner, since then nothing has been the same there. He made new menu additions, okay. But every time we have ordered since he has taken over our order is either wrong or missing items (new people are answering the phone, including the owner himself). This never happened... More

We are disappointed to hear that you are unsatisfied with your visit here. We have added a couple new menu items which we felt many people would enjoy! We have had a conversation with the staff about all orders for no future mistakes. If you would like to give me a call at (610) 455-0900, and ask for Tom, that... More

Family run...not a chain...decent Mexican but not memorable...especially after returning from Cabo! The specials are usually pretty tasty and the guacamole is good but expensive....you order and the they call your number....no real atmosphere...if your hungry and nearby..worth stopping but wouldn't go out of my way....

Ok. Overpriced. I'm absolutely sure there are better choices. The best part of the meal was the different salsas at the condiment counter.

With choices such as California Fresh and others in the area, this comes up a little short. It's not bad, so if I was in the same shopping center and wanted Mexican, I'd go here, I just wouldn't hop in the car and make a trip to dine at Red Sombrero. I think Chipotle is better in West Chester.

We have eaten at this restaturant numerous times and have never been dissapointed. Our favorites are the fresh salsa's and chips and the enchalada platter. We've also been pleased witht eh burrito's and chimichanga. The atmosphere is casual and offer byob.

Five reviews gave this over four stars. I'm wondering if my wife and I ate at the same place. If this place was Italian, it would be considered a pizza joint. The decor is sparse but clean. It's one open room with lots of tables. No booths or dividers. You order at the counter in back and pick it up... More

My wife and I ate dinner @ the Red Sombrero and enjoyed it very much. It's in a strip mall, and you order @ the counter and pick up your order, so if you require table service, this is not the place for you. That said, if you enjoy delicious, authentic Mexican food, prepared fresh, give the Red Sombrero a... More

Absolutely the best Mexican food I have had in awhile! The quality is outstanding & every time I go there no matter what it is the same. I've tried multiple things off the menu and loved them all. The atomisphere is laid back and casual and the service is great. Awesome salsas and authentic drinks, also a bring your own... More
