The food is so good and prepared fresh in front of your eyes. You must try the wet burritos. P.S. make sure you're hungry as they are massive!

Very unassuming on the outside, but fabulous food on the inside! After traveling in Mexico, this is probably the most authentic and best-tasting food north of two borders.

El Sombrero does not skimp out on the size of their portions. The burritos are big and you can have almost anything you want in them without being charged extra (including guacamole). If you like your burritos large and quite moist then this is the place to go. The burritos you find at the chain restaurants such as Chipotle are certainly much drier. But they aren't cheap. A burrito will set you back $9.49 plus tax. There are many other options on the menu and many tables to sit at after ordering and paying for your food at the counter.

Just happened to visit this restaurant because the location worked for me and I was pleasantly surprised! It is a very casual, self serve restaurant, you go up to the counter to order your food and they bring it over to your table when it is ready.
Delicious meals at a decent price! Have been back there several times already! Worth a visit if you are in the area!

Having lived in Southern California for 12 years I was skeptical about finding "real" Mexican food in Mississauga. El Sombrero catered a party for us and the food was fantastic. Fresh, tasty and great portions. Best guacamole north of the 49th - it's the real deal. If you are searching for an authentic Mexican meal stop here. Oh, and save room for dessert!! Bonuelos are a chocoholics dream and the Torija are amazing. We will be back whenever we are in town!
