The food is wonderful and the service is exceptional! No matter how busy they are we have never had to wait over 5 to 10 min. for seating. 90 % of the time there is no wait! They have a large seating capacity and servers to accommodate all. we go often and are never disappointed!

We arrived at 5:15 on Thursday eve and restaurant was already getting busy. But this place is huge, so no problem. The decor is very nice - light brick, colorful tiles, dark wood with nice lighting. Got seated promptly, with server arriving immediately. Got beers and appetizer of guacamole and started reviewing the extensive menu. I had the combo of... More

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.

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
