Food is very good. Salsa is the best! Varied selection, and price range is wide, making it affordable for most budgets.

This restaurant fell off for a while, but it is back up in quality. Typical Mexican fare. Well seasoned and ample portions. Good value.

We were disappointed with our dinner. We love Mexican food and frequent such restaurants in Florida. We were in town for College visit with our son. We stopped for dinner and were very disappointed with the food quality, and most of all, when the cashier quoted us three different prices for our dinner! (Common, simple math that we could do...

I always go with the sombrero cheese steak. Loaded with cheese sauce! Their salsa isn't my favorite but others I know like it. And good sweet tea!

We enjoy this restaurant even though we are not that crazy about Mexican food. The waiters have always tried to help us and we have been able to avoid hot food for years.

There are a few Mexican Restaurants in Habersham County and they are all pretty much the same. All offer exceptional service, good Mexican food, and short wait time. If you like Mexican food then I'm sure you'll enjoy this restaurant or any of the others.

And that is what you feel when you come into El Sombrero, WELCOME! I am not sure what Authentic Mexican Cuisine means exactly, I'm sure it is somewhat Americanized, but it sure is very good. We have been here many times and are never disappointed. When last we visited they were having some electrical problems for cause of some storms... More
