Seated and served quickly = happy teens

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... read more

These restaurants have consistent and decent Mexican style foods. The service is most excellent. I've dined here often and have never been disappointed. They tend to serve very good alcoholic concoctions and aim to please.

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
