“Great Mexican Food in Greencastle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We are from the area and were excited about a new Mexican restaurant opened in the area. We spend our winters in CA and miss eating really good Mexican in the summer. The building is beautiful and the service was excellent. We had an assortment of food from shrimp fajitas, tamales, soft tacos and sopapillas, wanting to try everything. It was all very good, the best in our area.

“Excellent Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

El Sombrero's delicious, creamy refried beans are quite a treat. Years ago a cooking show host traveled to a town in Mexico where a woman made the best refried beans. El Sombrero's chef must have her recipe. Everything else that comes out of their kitchen is equally delectable and gets high marks for presentation. Besides the fact that all items are reasonably priced.

The restaurant does not have a liquor license, so it's BYOB - we were offered cold glasses for our beer. We can highly recommend the Frijitas Texanas - shrimp, chicken & sliced beef for $12.55 and #16 from the Combinations at $8.25, this dish features 3 shredded beef enchilidas covered with a yummy cheese sauce.

“Excellent new restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Gorgeous new building with knotty pine floor. Decor is great, with Mexican music playing. I had a sea food fajita that was excellent. It is off the main drag in Green Castle. I hope the word gets out about this place!

“Good value, hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

If you like Mexican this is small town charm at a good price. The staff was attentive. Great selection and fast to serve. I'd recommend this family's friendly restaurant. Not the best location but its off the Main Street so it offers quiet dining.
