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

We stayed at the Holiday Inn next door. It was late on a sunday and this was one of the few places open on a sunday night and it was packed. My sister and I both had the Quail. Two quail, vegetables, guacamolie, beer, and chips. We could not eat it all. The prices are very reasonable $55 for the... More

I generally do not eat Mexican food but my wife does and so we went here. I ordered a chicken salad. Not very "Mexican" but it was an excellent dish. Very large portion, lots of chicken and cheese and fresh lettuce. It tasted really, really good. The only negative were the tomatoes. They were just like the crappy tomatoes you... More

Huge portions and good service. The margaritas were outstanding. The size is great for large groups. Totally recommend for a party.

This place was next to our hotel and had pretty good reviews, so we gave it a try. We are from Texas and have no fewer than 8 Mexican restaurants in our little town, so we have certain expectations. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't what we are used to-the fajita nachos had actual fajitas with peppers and onions... More

El Sombrero in Vicksburg, MS is as good a Mexican Restaurant as they come. The service is top notch, the food excellent, and the prices more than reasonable. The salsa and chips are plentiful and fresh. The menu selection is abundant and the atmosphere is nice. The management is friendly and inviting as well as is the staff. It's one... More

We eat at this restaurant quite often as my husband travels to this area with his work. We stay next door at the Holiday Inn. The food is excellent. The place is beautiful and the staff are all very nice. However, the smoking at the bar is a big turn off. Even though it is only at the bar, you... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn next to it and waked over for dinner, great food and service, food had a great flavor and was prepared well. Would definitely stop and eat here again if passing through town. Only complaint is Mississippi still lets there be smoking in restaurants that aren't strictly a bar - been spoiled in Arkansas ! Good... More
