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

After seeing the rating and reviews I expected a lot more from this restaurant but it was average at best the steak tasted like chopped steak and it looked like they were trying to hide the food with sour cream.

Our meal was excellent as was the service. Our waitress was very helpful and bubbly. The huge glasses of beers the men had were only $5 each and they were really good. The only word of caution I would give is that the portions were big and I think my friend and I should have shared. Everything was fresh and... More

Frozen margaritas were excellent! Plenty of chips and salsa, but my daughter said it was too marana-ish. It was a bit like spaghetti sauce, but still pretty good-especially with the margaritas! Decor.surroundings, and services were excellent. Food was pretty good and came quickly.
