Seems a bit overpriced compared to other Mexican restaurants in area. Excellent service. I like that they leave a pitcher of ice water at table. Kind of disappointed by deep fried ice cream dessert.

Maybe I'm just easily impressed but I was surprised that after finally thinking to review this restaurant the existing reviews all seemed fairly average. I've probably eaten here a dozen or more times over the past 3-4 years when I'm in the area for work related reasons ... it's one of my favorite Mexican restaurants anywhere. I will confess that...

The food and atmosphere were typical of most Mexican restaurants - nothing special, but not bad either. We were, however, impressed with the speed in which we were seated and served, particularly since we arrived as a group of 8 with no reservations. The staff was friendly and attentive and we enjoyed our visit.

I was greeted upon entering immediately and shown a table within two minutes. Since I was a solo dinner I expected the usual location, next to the kitchen but NO! I was seated in a booth for 4 and they were plenty busy. My food was served within 10 minutes of placing my order. It was piping hot and the... More

We were looking for an ethnic restaurant to walk to in downtown WallaWalla but the Thai one was closed when we reached it. We saw a shopkeeper just closing up her store and asked her. She suggested El Sombrero and said that her family always want to go there whenever they are in town. It was right opposite to our... More
