Our visit to Macon today just happened to put us there at lunchtime and we both remembered an enjoyable trip last year to El Sombrero. Nothing much has changed since that last visit. It's still rather dark inside and the interior is way past due for remodeling. However, the food is still great, the prices are incredible and the service... More

My family of 5 absolutely loved the food. We were just passing through Macon and happened to stop and eat here. We have 3 Mexican restaurants in our home town and they don't even come close to El Sombrero. My Margarita was nice and strong, just the way I like it.

Friends of ours suggested we try this restaurant for dinner...and we were delighted that we did! The chicken soup was incredibly good, loaded with large pieces of chicken and loads of vegetable swimming in a rick broth you could smell across the table. One of our party opted for beef tacos, one of a variety available and the steak fajitas... More

The draft beer is cold and the (noisy) crowd has much energy! I ordered the chicken polo (soup) and cheese quesadilla, my wife had a fancy salad with salmon on top. The soup was not very hot and the avocado was small - not the best I've ever had. The salad was missing some of the items but the server... More

A group of eight went here together for lunch at peak lunch time. We were seated and serviced very promptly with great service and tasty food at a lunch special price. I was very favorably impressed and will eat here again when back in the area for lunch.

I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the food was prepared. The quality and prices were reasonable & this is a good stop for Mexican food if you're in the neighborhood.

Best Mexican in this area. Food excellent per American taste with wide variety and full portions. My daughter likes the chicken fajitas, my wife and I the numbered meals. Prices very reasonable, service good and attentive. Atmosphere pleasant, relaxing, and clean, including the restrooms. A popular spot with a well-earned reputation.

Thank mwpflash65
