We came to El Sombrero because it was just down the street from our hotel and we were not disappointed. The salsa is some of the best we've had at any Mexican restaurant. The main course was well worth the trip here.

Arrived in the area around 9, checked into our hotel and then set out in search of a decent place to eat. Seemed the only places available after 9pm were Waffle House and this place. Walked in at 9:50, knowing they close at 10 we apologized to the hostess for coming in so close to closing time and inquired if... More

Good Tex-Amex food considering that it's in Vicksburg. Living in Texas, I guess I'm a little spoiled when it comes to Tex-Mex. Very quick service and a huge menu to choose from.

My husband and I love to stop here and eat lunch. We are always traveling to see the grandchildren and in a hurry. The service is quick and the food is great!

Nice environment and great food. My mom and I have the taco salad, which was really good. My husband had the steak Colorado. The steak was seasoned very nicely.

They have the best Chili Colorado and Salsa on the planet. I see a few complaints and I don't know why. They must have been there on one of their very worst days, or either are just the complaining type person. The parking lot is always full, the service is always second to none and it doesn't matter how busy... More

We are a bit spoiled living in Texas with so many good options for Tex-Mex and Mexican food. My wife and I stopped at El Sombrero based on T.A. reviews and a local suggestion. The service and food were good and on par with similar chain Mexican food restaurants... nice selection, good food, but not spectacular. The Queso Fundido and... More

I have eaten every Mexican dish I can imagine, but this was inedible. I could only eat the rice after trying the Chile Relleno, salsa?, and Flauta that looked like an enchilada. Everything was very sweet? The waiter didn't know what Green Chile was, so I was a bit skeptical right off the bat. Also, the couple next to me... More

Wonderful service. Good texmex food. Large Dos Equis draft very refreshing after long road trip. Large, varied menu. Everything we had was delicious. Enchiladas, flautas (taquitos on menu), tamale. Chips and salsa. Will be back when we are stopping in Vicksburg.

We were sent there by the Motel front desk with the comment "Best Mexican Restaurant in Vicksburg". If that is so no more Mexican in Vicksburg for us. They had a new waitress who confused order after order. In our case she mistook the Dinner items for Lunch items at 8 o'clock at night. Upon receiving the wrong food I... More
