A wonderful rendition of a little restaurant in Mexico! Our server was way too pushy and we felt rushed throughout the meal. I wasn't impressed by the food, it tasted like it came from a can or from a fast food place. The beer selection was very limited! On a positive note, the chips and salsa were good!

They have the best salsa. We go here whenever we can. I had a poblano pepper which about as authentic as you can get.

BARNONE THE BEST AUTHENTIC Spanish, Mexican and Latin food in Middle Georgia! The first time I went to El Sombrero; I thought it was beginners luck that they got the table-side guacamole perfectly correct with chunks of Alvacodo seasoned nicely with tomatoes, sea-salt, onions and jalapeños. So, the next day, I returned to try the lunch menu out. I ordered... More

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
