Elsom is a local favorite. It's also our go to restaurant. Not wanting to cook, let's get Elsom, meeting friends.. Elsom! Great prices and great food.

Moved my daughter in to Georgia Southern this past week end. After a long, HOT move in day on Friday, we went to El Sombrero for dinner. The place was packed, but they got us in and out in no time. The food was fantastic and the service was great. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

The food overall was average. The salsa had almost no flavor. It appeared to be very clean even during a busy lunch. The service was excellent.

If you're looking for GOOD, top notch Mexican food, in a beautiful restaurant, this is the place! Look for the golden dome-you'll find fine dining on both the main floor and upper level. Great service every time we go. Our friends and family love this place, we know that you will too!

Every time we are In Statesboro we visit El Som. Good basic Mex - generous portions (will frequently share a single order of fajitas with my wife), good guacamole, and spicy salsa. Good happy hour drink specials too.

I went out to lunch with some friends that go there all the time. It had been a while since I had been there. I They had added on and it was lovely. The waitress knew my friends and that was a positive. It was a lovely lunch and the food was good.

El Som, or The Hat as the locals refer to the three, yes, three locations off er good authentic Mexican food. There is great comfort in having consistency of menu items and flavors. All three locations feature pretty much the same fare, but each has a different feel and vibe. The staff at all three locations are friendly and helpful... More
