A family favorite and the first place the kids and grandkids say the want to go. While food is still good, the quality of preparation and care seems to have gone down as they have grown larger and busier. Very large restaurant that is almost always packed.

We went on a Sunday for lunch while on vacation in Vicksburg. Excellent food and service. I honestly don't know what else anyone could ask for in a authentic Mexican restaurant in the US. The decor and atmosphere was very well done and the food did not disappoint. One of the best Mexican restaurants in which I've ever eaten.

We stopped in for lunch after driving from northern Alabama. My 12 year old couldn't decide between a couple of different things and the waiter recommended something else entirely. He tried it and he loved it. I went safe and ordered a sampler of items and they were all good. The atmosphere was festive and we really enjoyed it. Would... More

Stayed at the Holiday Express next door and had to wait for our room, so decided to walk next door to the El Sombrero for lunch. Service was fast and friendly and the menu had something for everyone. Everything looked good but decided on the shredded beef chimichanga and was not at all disappointed. Our two meals came to under... More

Beautiful building, delicious food, friendly service and refreshing margaritas! What more could you ask for. My husband and I shared the Parrilla for two. They should make it, Parrilla for six! It was a mixture of beef, pork, chicken and shrimp. We also had the margaritas which happened to be 2 for 1. Suffice to say, we went home with... More

Asked the hotel where to get a decent bite to eat. They suggested El Sombrero if we liked Mexican food. Thought we were in trouble when we pulled into the parking lot and it was full. Surprise - no waiting and very quiet. The prices were very reasonable. The service was good and the food was very good. Was a... More

About 6:00, I left to get some dinner. Joan was tired and decided to forego eating another meal. I drove a short distance to a Mexican restaurant, El Sombrero. I had a nice meal: tamales, enchilada, rice and beans. It was good but not “write home” good. The restaurant is quite large; its interior decor was more noteworthy than the... More

The food is reasonable and the prices are great. The only negative is that they allow smoking at this restaurant. The smell is so bad that it comes close to ruin the food. You have to walk through the smoke to get to the non-smoking area. I would recommend even though the smoke..... I give it a poor in atmosphere... More
