Festive decor, good service, good food.

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... read 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

We ate here as a family while staying in Vicksburg overnight. Decided to eat here based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. The reviews are pretty much right on. The place is BIG, but was very crowded on a Friday night. We were seated quickly, the staff was nice and very fast. We got our food within 10 minutes of ordering,... More

We eat here quite often. Food is great. Service is good. But I witnessed the girl who was making tortillas chewing gum open mouthed and actually blowing a bubble as she was handling the tortillas. Not good! Gross! I won't be eating tortillas!

Great Mexican food! We had a very friendly waiter, who was patient as we tried to decide what to eat from the vast menu. Great drinks and food. Nice place.

Went here for the first time in October and all I can say is it was the nicest meal I have had in my 2 weeks in the states. We requested for the chef to prep a starter sauce for us consisting of peppers, chilli and jalapeños and they were more than happy to accommodate this for us. The flavour... More
