I love visiting El Sombrero when I'm in Longview. The white queso and salsa is to die for!!! I've never had a bad meal here. I love the extensive menu. Excellent food!

I've had the carne asada and it was very good. Today I had the carnitas. Very good as well and enough for 3 meals. For Longview I think this is a great place to eat.

The food is very good. The chips are fresh and the salsa is great. I love the cilantro flavor and just the right heat. Corn tortilla are nothing special, flour are better. Sweet tea is gooood. Rice and beans are worth getting with any meal order. The white queso may mess with you at first with its albino color. It... More

The wait staff was rude and obnoxious. They try to rush you through your order, and then when you get what you ordered, it's not right. Then they'll try to argue with you about what you ordered. There's another one in Hallsville, Tx that's newer; Food is the same, but waitstaff is much more couteous.

The friendly service and tender beef entrees will keep me coming back. The queso is worth just going for a drink to meet with friends.

The service has always been poor at best with no since of customer service at all! Owner always at corner booth next to bar when she needs to be running her restaurant. Ask for tortillas three times and finally get (3) tortillas...... For (4) people! Same thing time after time!

One of our favorites. Their specials are good and they have queso blanco sauce. We've never had a bad meal here.

I met some friends last Friday for lunch and they chose El Sombrero. This was my first and last time to eat there. First of all, the restaurant is dark and gloomy. You are immediately hit with the aroma of old grease when you walk in the door. The salt and pepper shakers and the condiments on the table were... More
