Consistently Good

Sometimes you go to a restaurant and it'll be hit or miss. I've never had a bad experience at El Sombrero. The ambiance is also nice. The guacamole is off the chain. Spicy and possibly the best I've ever eaten. The food is good; the service is good; and the prices are reasonable.

The décor is designed to make you feel you just entered a restaurant in Mexico and as long as you have never been to Mexico it fine. The décor has nothing to do with the service or the food - yet it is charming. The meals are large, hot and acceptable. The menu is also large and provides something for... More

Very little choice of where to eat tonight, and after my disastrous experience of Mexican in Oxford last night I was dubious but prepared to give it a go. Setting was a bit like eating at Disney but the meal was lovely. I had a fajita which was very tasty and with the accompaniments very filling. My husband also enjoyed... More

We typically order our favorites and each is always consistently good. If you have never had fish tacos, give them a try. I love them.

This is by far the best Mexican food I've had in my life. The number 51 gives u the option of making fajitas out if every meat the restaurant offers from chorizo to roast pork. From shrimp to chicken and all the fixings to add! If I ever go back I'll have to order and number 51 for dine in... More

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.

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. Great place to have parties and get togethers. Wait staff and ownership are... More
