We were traveling on Highway 12 to visit relatives, and it was past 7:30 when we decided that we should stop for some dinner in Walla Walla. We pulled off at the downtown exit and almost immediately passed El Sombrero. When we walked in, we were impressed with both the decor and the prompt service. I ordered the arroz con... More

First time visit for us. They had standard Mexican fare and some specials. Food came out pretty quickly and was hot, which we appreciated. Food was pretty good. Would have rated them a little higher but one member of our party got nausea and abdominal cramps that night.

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.
