We always go to El Sombrero when we want a good Mexican dinner. The service is fantastic and the food is delicious. We are originally from California and this is as close to the food we always had living in California. When we have guests who want Mexican food we always take them to El Sombrero. If you go, ask...

Needed a family friendly, inexpensive dinner with gluten free options! Located two blocks from Main Street, adjacent to the Marcus Whitman and La Quinta Hotels. Service was extremely quick. Salsas were fresh and house made. Mole sauce was delicious. Serving sizes were ample. Service was prompt. efficient and friendly. Would recommend and would go back.

This is just your average meal for mexican dishes. The drinks are just ok. Nothing to write home to mom about. I had the Chalupa and my husband had the Colorado Brto. They are just ok. Not bad but not great.

Husband and I went here for dinner the first night we were in Walla Walla since it was convenient to our hotel. The tortilla chips they bring while waiting for your food tasted burned. We then ordered an appetizer platter to share...it was flavorless and bland. Later that night I woke up with a terrible stomach ache. Won't visit there... More

Simple classic Tex-Mex cooking in a traditional environment. This isn't a high design or high concept restaurant. Simple good tasting cuisine with a very family friendly vibe. On the main drag in Walla Walla, a short walk from downtown attractions.

Traditional mexican ingredients, served traditionally, but doesn't taste Mexican to me. Rated the #1 Mexican restaurant in Walla Walla by others. We have eaten Tex-Mex, Cal-Mex, New Mexico-Mex, and fairly authentic Mexican in Baja California, including street food. Have eaten in Mexican restaurants where no English was spoken. Chile Relleno here was lukewarm, cheese in strips outside the chile, and... More
