El Sombrero has the best Mexican food in Macon, but service in that newer area in the back of the restaurant is never good! The good is delicious, and you usually see someone who you know there:)

A friend & I went to El Sombrero for dinner. We had an excellent server who helped us decide what to order. We was very friendly & most attentive. We felt comfortable to stay after we finished dinner.

I have been dining at the other locations of El Sombrero for years, but have found that the food and atmosphere is better at this Forsyth Rd location! The only problem with this location, is that...

I ate here tonight on the recommendation of the front desk clerk at the hotel. Wasn't impressed with the interior. Salsa was good. It was a little spicy. It was just your average Mexican food. Nothing special.

Clearly my favorite Mexican Restaurant in Macon. The food is great, love the nachos and sauce.The sauce is a little bit more than mild but not too hot. Love it.

Visit the El Sombrero off Forsyth in the Kroger Shopping Center and try the Salad with the grilled chicken, shrimp & steak, you'll not regret it. The fresh avocado, the black olives, onion, and just the right amount of cheese combine for a flavor that makes you say, "Ahh, I like this, and I'll be back for more!" Have a... More

Went here based on TA reviews. This restaurant provides very average food and below average service in an atmosphere of below average cleanliness. I'll start with the positive. The salsa was excellent. I could drink the stuff. The sangria was good, (onto the negative) but I cut my lip on the broken rim of the glass. (This was remedied with... More
