The food was delicious, served piping hot. The service is amazing. My husband always jokes around with the wait staff and they banter back and have a great attitude. Excellent fast service. We eat here over and over and are happy each and every time.

This mexican restaurant had wonderful authentic Mexican food with all the trimings. They have a drink there that came in a good sized bowl and had fruit and more than one type of alcohol in it was kind of like a sangria it was delicious (do NOT try driving after drinking this). The homemade warm chips were so good and... More

Great chips and salsa. It was late when we were here. The service was good and the food was better. See pix. I ordered a margarita and it was good, but I should've had the cazuela. I passed it up and I shouldn't have. The food was very tasty. It was served quickly and we were happy with our choices.... More

I went there with a large group of friends and we could not believe how quickly the food was served. On top of that the food was so tasty. Some of the best Mexican food I have ever tasted and I have tasted plenty.

El Sombrero is an easy place to go have dinner. The service is quick if you're in a hurry but they won't hurry you out if you aren't. This family owned and operated restaurant is friendly and just comfortable. Try the Camarones ala Diablo here.

I always order my chicken fajitas "well done" and they always make it perfect! We really like this place. Atmosphere is very nice and well thought-out. Service is always great, and the staff nice and attentive. The only thing I can say with any negativity is that both salsas they give are too hot/spicy for me, but that's ok because... More

In town for a conference with a group of teens. Rolled into the busy restaurant at 730 on a Friday night. We were greeted, seated and served chips and salsa within minutes. Meals were very generous portions, but were basically pretty bland. Good value for the money. Excellent service and the waiters remembered the large order correctly without writing it... More
