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

El Sombrero is known for using white cheese. It's delicious if you haven't tried it before! I've enjoyed everything I've had here, from fish tacos to carne guisada.

Celebrated my last birthday at the Longview location. Excellent service and food. So glad they have opened up in Hallsville now. Service and food are equally good there as well. :)

The white queso dip is the best around these parts. Fajita nachos are so good you will want to relive eating them for days! But the service and cashier are usually rather blah and not very attentive. I only go when I need a Queso fix!
