Yum. Good margaritas. Good happy hour prices. Service was good (not great) and chips and salsa was tasty. We did not have dinner.

Upscale Mexican in suburbs. Indoor and outdoor seating. We ate at the bar to avoid wait. Taco Tuesday. Bartender recommend chili shrimp taco. It was delicious! Also had a very good pulled pork taco. Mexican mule hit the spot. Fun and yummy place to eat.

Service is spot on. Homemade and fresh Mexican Chow! Homemade guacamole is fabulous! To go or eat in, Sombra does an excellent job with fresh ingredients and creative menu.

We've eaten here twice and it was wonderful each visit. I had the vegetarian (black bean & goat cheese) tamale and don't usually eat vegetarian but it was delicious. It was very flavorful and the masa part of the tamale was moist and extremely tasty, even the steamed veggies that accompanied it was awesome with a hint of rosemary. On... More

We frequent this restaurant quite often and are never disappointed. The menu has a wide variety of both traditional and "nouveau" Mexican dishes. The fish is fabulous and always fresh. The traditional dishes are also great and are never greasy (as is often found in many mexican restaurants.) Wait staff is always great - even during peak lunch and dinner... More

We eat Mexican food once a week and are pretty particular (we avoid chains restaurants). I'm happy to say Sombra passed the test! The choices were interesting and flavorful. The drinks were good. The only negative I have the noise. Very loud and visiting was difficult. Will visit again if in the area.
