Felt uncomfortable from the beginning. Staff all but stalked us and we felt like we had to rush. It was so uncomfortable that we ate less than half of our meals and decided to go. Food came way to fast, salsa on my entree tasted...More

I have yet to have a margarita as good as El Sombrero's. They have 30+ different flavors and they're all amazing. And don't worry-they don't skimp on the alcohol. The food is also very good, especially when paired with a margarita!

Chilli relleno was delish!!!! Yum! Margaritas pack a punch!! Super good. Service was perfect! Music was not distracting and the environment was very inviting. I'm from Chicago with some of the best restaurants but I will miss it here for sure!
