“Great food, Great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is the go to mexican place in Statesboro - 2 locations and we've been to both. Food is consistently good with quick service. Mango margaritas are great. Even when they look super busy, they turn tables quickly. The newest location has upstairs dining and is a very large restaurant. The old location is fairly small with a pretty large bar crowd (bar is separated by a hallway)

“Very impressed . . . .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Not a fan of Mexican food (can't figure it out) - but went here with family. Very good food - and the Lime Margarita's (on special for $2.00) actually had taquilla in them. Prices were reasonable as well.

“Fast, tasty and easy on the wallet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were in town last weekend for Ga Southern Fall Family Weekend and took our party of 10 there. We only waited about 15 minutes--and the place was packed. I had the fish tacos and one of their ice-cold 32oz beers. Delicious! Others ordered fajitas, chicken nachos, etc and everyone was full and happy in less than an hour.

“Quick and cheap...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The highlight of my recent lunch outing at El Sombrero was the salsa...tasty!
The chips were cold and stale.

My lunch order was the speedy gonzalez,nothing here that set it apart from the same menu item at any other typical Mexican joint.

Its cheap and prepared quickly and my waiter was friendly enough.

“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

My family and I eat here at least once per week. They have something for everyone, the margaritas are outstanding, the food is always fresh, delicious, hot, and quick! And sis I mention cheap??? You will see a lot of families here. It is a great value as well as delicious. No other Mexican restaurant in any other town is as good as El Sombrero. We prefer the location on Northside Drive but he food is great at all three locations in the boro. The newest one on Buckhead is very pretty and has an upstairs bar which is more appealing to the younger crowd. The location on Fair Rd. has more of a party like atmosphere with apt of GSU students. They are all good but The Northside location is more family friendly. Been eating here for literally 23 years!
