I have eaten here several times and each time I have ordered something different with the results being the same, all very good. It seems you can't go wrong here. The service is always very good.

As with Amerigo, Char, and the other restaurants owned by this group, Everything is always done right. Drinks are perfect, servers are well trained and knowledgeable, food is always outstanding. My favorite is the chimichanga. Be warned though, you better be hungry when you order because it is a lot of good food to tackle.

The food that we enjoyed was innovative and authentically Mexican. It is a family restaurant so if you want an urban vibe go at 7:00 or after when things turn decidedly more interesting. The portions are generous. I would have given them an Excellent rating if they had had the bison fajitas available. The service was excellent as well.

This is the nicest Mexican restaurant in our area. You wouldn't think a Mexican place would have good ribs but they are fabulous. Also, the fish tacos (fried) are wonderful. The only negative is the rice that comes with just about everything. It's the worst tasting rice I have ever eaten anywhere. I usually ask for a substitute like a... More

Hi Tammie, Thank you for your feedback from your recent visit to Sombra. I am sorry to hear that you do not care for our rice. We prepare it with chicken stock, peas, onions and seasoning; while it is typically a popular menu item, I understand it's not for everyone. We are always happy to leave it off or substitute...

I cater from there with my company and also enjoy meeting people there after work. Never had a problem with the food. They have lots to choose. There taco salad is huge and I like getting the fajitas. Of course the drinks are very good. Sometimes they have music.

Very nice ambience at this Mexican restaurant in the Township at Colony Park. Often a wait at peak hours. Large menu with generally good, consistent food offerings. Service variable but often servers seem overloaded and less than fully attentive. A good spot for a relaxing lunch or supper.
