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 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.

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

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.
