Always been good

Been here several times. It's always been hot, fresh and good. Tonight was carne asada and camarones, flour tortillas, backed that up with a blue Hawaiian drink. Chips and salsa are always a treat. Wife had the nacho cheese with pollo. We will be back again, to try other items.

Ate here with some family members. Good food and friendly staff. Prices are not super cheap. Nice decor and art in the restaurant! I also like the fact that they don't use lard in any of their beans.

The food was good and well prepared but the service was not that good considering I was the only one there. I think the staff were having an argument from what I heard. Not the place to handle it.

As a local, this is our favorite Mexican restaurant in town. Service is great; food is consistent; prices are great. I usually order the veggie burrito and I've never been disappointed.

A busy weekend in Walla Walla, and a lot of restaurants were booked out until late. El Sombrero had decent reviews, so we dropped in with no reservation on Friday around 6:15. We only had a short wait of under 10 minutes before we were seated. The Cadillac Margarita was a little too sweet; I should have stuck with the... More

I was a stranger in town looking for Mexican food. I asked 4 different parties, 3 couples and 1 single, where the best Mexican food in town was. All recommended El Sombrero and they were right. Great food, good prices and a friendly and accommodating staff. If I lived here I'd be a regular customer.

My husband and I got there in the middle of the Friday night rush - got seated but the hostess came back and explained that the table we were sitting at was the only extension they had for a table of 12. They asked if we would mind moving? Very polite, apologizing for the inconvenience. We were reseated, our drink... More

El Sombrero has a great vegan veggie enchilada dish. They don't use lard in their beans, YAY. The servers are always polite, and the restaurant has an authentic feel. Awesome place for groups and families.
