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

We dined in, as a family of 4. The atmosphere was friendly, and everyone working there was smiling. The food was delicious! The salsa was AMAZING!!!! If we come back to Statesboro, we will definitely be back! There is a bar attached to the back, but it did not damper our experience.

We enjoy our food at El Sombrero. It is your typical Americanized Mexican food with quesadillas, tacos, taco salad, etc. We like their version of salsa of any of the other Mexican restaurants in town. The wait staff is always friendly but sometimes slow. It can get very crowded at 12:00 and 6:00 so don't go if you are in... More
